Meal Planning Monday

January 7, 2019

I'm super simplifying meal planning for the unforeseen future. After my first week back at work and trying to cook but being glued to the kitchen between bottles, prepping for the next day, and dinner my butt wasn't seeing a seat until I laid down to sleep. 

So to make life easier I'm doing a few things:
1) I ordered a George Foreman that has removable plates that are dishwasher safe. 
2) Simple meals of Protein, Veggie, Carb
3) Using frozen and prechopped veggies when possible. 

If it can't go on a sheet pan, steamed, in an Instant Pot, or on the George Foreman then I'm kissing it good bye until we are on vacation from work. 

Monday - Asian Beef and Snow Peas (just beef, steam pack snow peas, seasoned in an Asian way)

Tuesday - Grilled Chicken with Bacon Lima Beans and Cauliflower Rice

Wednesday - Trader Joe's Pot-stickers and Frozen Stir-fry Veggies (something easy peasy since I am working late and Jeremy has the kids alone. Double the Asian... but whatever)

Thursday - Ranch Roasted Potatoes, Brussel Sprouts & Grilled Chicken

Friday - Grilled Chicken with Birdseye Steamable Cheddar Lentil Pasta and Roasted Broccoli (pre chopped)

Saturday - Pioneer Woman's Pepperoni Chicken

Sunday - Potatoes O'brien, Sausage Gravy, Eggs, Biscuits - leftover Pepperoni Chicken for dinner

Breakfast - My favorite smoothie. 

Lunch - Trader Joe's Turkey Meatballs, Walmart Organic Garlic Pasta Sauce, Wild Rice with Kerry Gold Butter, and Roasted Green Beans

Snacks - Quest Protein Bar - Apple with PB and mini chocolate chips
