Weekly Menu Planning

Back in 2012, when I was trying to loose weight for my wedding, I tracked EVREY single thing that I ate, planned my meals out every Saturday and spent Sunday prepping and making meals. It worked wonders and I lost 20 lbs in 5 months.

Nowadays tracking, planning, prep, etc. is much more difficult. Having a toddler running around makes it difficult to make the plans and stick with them. I’ve been back on the band wagon many times and a few weeks in something comes up and I forget to plan a week, forget to enter in my food, and I fall off.

So here I go trying again….I’m hoping that by doing a weekly blog post I’ll keep up more with the planning. I’m not going to enter food into any app or anything like that, I’m just going to plan the week and really push myself to stick to the plan.

So here goes……


Grocery List:
5 green peppers*
cheddar cheese
1lb grass fed beef
black olives*
jalapenos*
free range skin on bone in chicken thighs*
artichoke hearts*
green olives*
pasture raised eggs
coconut flour
whole fat greek yogurt*
strawberries*
3 avocado*
3 tomatoes*
2 cans tuna
blueberries*
2 heirloom tomatoes*
hummus*
granola
salsa
shredded coconut
dates
cashews
good seed bread
watermelon
cheese sticks
cucumber
*denotes items I purchased, others I had at home

All of the above gives myself and R breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the week. I’m loving doing all of my grocery shopping at New Seasons Market. And the best part? I only spent $57.77 at the grocery store! When purchasing all organic, free range, hormone free food the prices can get a bit spency but so far New Seasons hasn’t been too bad!

First up on the menu? Green Pepper “Not”-chos

OMG were these delicious! Large sliced green peppers, a few purple corn chips and lots of delicious toppings (we did tomatoes, black olives, beef, and cheese). Bake at 325 for 20 minutes and enjoy! In our house we LOVE nachos so this was a great way to make them lighter. Give it a try.

Stick around for more posts about all the yummy things we make this week, can’t wait to share!
