With hubs gone, meal planning has been necessary. I’ve been cooking things with leftovers to make it easier to prep Ethan’s lunches (which I usually do the night before).
So I decided to give my hand at sharing my meal planning ventures with y’all because well…why not right? Especially now that I’m really focused on trying to lose weight.
Last night I prepped the macaroni salad – a recipe I found on weight watchers, 3 pp per serving (1/2 c. is one serving) so even if you go for 1 c. you’re not breaking the points plus bank.
The recipe was super easy – we’ll see how tasty it is. Will follow up with a full review later this week!
The enchilladas I got last week at a meal swap that my moms group held (miraculously I found the time during Sunday’s nap time to make five dishes of stuffed shells. Yummmm.) and taco salads are an easy go to that give plenty o’ leftovers for both E and I.
I used to over think meal planning – thinking that all recipes that were worth it were complex. But that’s just not true. As a working mama, ain’t nobody got time for that. I like to find healthy recipes that a. don’t require a lot of prep. b. give leftovers (though not required definitely a plus) c. are something that E might eat. Which is sometimes a feat.
