Menu Plans

Healthy 1 Week Menu Plan

First of all, I am no nutrition expert. However, my definition of healthy is: real ingredients, fresh local produce, Organic products and homemade recipes. With that in mind, I made a one week meal plan based on foods I have at home. I do have two pre-made foods which you’ll see below, I rarely buy these but I did get them when we arrived in CT since I’m still waiting for all of our moving cargo to arrive and am making do with 1 pot, 2 non-stick pans, small set of knives and cutlery for 2. I try to follow menu-plans as best as I can, some days I do, some days I switch recipes and some days I call for a pizza after a day in bed watching Gilmore girls. We’re all trying here 🙂 and we deserve a good pat in the back for that….just squat a little bit so I can reach your back (I’m 5″1) *pat pat*.
