Back to Meal Planning

This week I decided I would try meal planning to see if it would help saving money and also time. I went through my fridge and cabinets to see what I already had on hand to use and what I need to pick up at the store. After doing a bit of creative thinking I have finished my plan for the week and it looks as follows:

B- Overnight oats with almond butter, banana, and walnuts
Snack- Broccoli with hummus
L- Salmon patty with pita, hummus, and tomato. 
Snack- Sesame sticks
D- Tofu, brown rice, and veggies

B- Protein pancake
L- Tofu leftover
Snack- Kind bar
D- Black bean burger and sweet potato fries

B- Overnight oats
L- Black bean burger and sweet potato fries (leftovers)
Snack- Sesame sticks/broccoli with hummus
D- Salmon with pasta and veggies

B- Pita with egg whites and 1 slice of yogurt pepper jack cheese
L- Salmon pasta leftovers
D- Going out to dinner

B- Overnight oats
L- Pita with salmon burger and hummus
D- Possibly going out to eat

I also picked up some extra ingredients at the store to make this little gem...
Quinoa pudding. Last week I picked up some rice pudding at the store on a whim and man... it quickly has become a new favorite. I figured I would try to make my own and make it a bit healthier by using quinoa!

Also on the agenda for this week is 
- 2 kickboxing classes
- 2 body pump classes
- Old Crow Medicine Show and The Lumineers concert
- presentation at work
.... ready set go!

Yours truly,

I wish I could buckle down, meal plan and actually stick to it. The sticking to it is the hardest part! Your plan looks great.
