Ever find yourself switching and swapping meals throughout the week. I do it all the time. A day might pop up when I just don’t feel like cooking, so I swap the dinner out for another day. When I first started meal planning, I felt like I had to stick to the plan and if I didn’t; I felt like I was failing. I felt like I wasn’t doing something right, like I was missing something to this meal planning formula. I didn’t understand how everyone else could stick to their plan but I couldn’t. It was frustrating.
What I finally realized … Meal Planning is really just giving yourself 6-7 options for the week. You’re buying the food at the same time so as long as you use it, it’s not a big deal WHEN you use it. With our crazy schedule knowing I have that flexibility has made Meal Planning so much easier for me. Just because you wrote Tacos on Monday doesn’t mean you can’t move those to Friday. Think of meal planning as a rough draft, the final isn’t done until it’s cooked!

What I’m Prepping
I’ve been seeing a ton of healthy ice cream options. My family loves some ice cream so I thought it would be fun to make a couple different recipes and then do some taste testing.
Overnight Oats. Chocolate Chia Pudding, I’d like to try out these Strawberry GF DF Muffins, and Breakfast Oat Bars this week. I really need something to grab on days I’m busy or running late.
Grab and Gos / Lunches:
Fruits (blueberries, Blackberries, Raspberries, strawberries)
Veggies (Carrots, Celery, Broccoli, Green Beans)
Homemade Granola Bars – I’ll be testing out a few this week.
Healthy Ice Cream – Stay tuned for our taste test reveal.
How I’m moving
I’m struggling with working out. STRUGGLING.
