In the past one of the reasons that I didn’t meal plan was because I became overwhelmed with options and had a hard time figuring out which meals to make. The list of ingredients seemed miles long and how did I know what I would want to eat what nights? I would give up because it was just too much for me to figure out.
But now I feel more confident in knowing what and how we like to eat and I have a better understanding of how to use ingredients in multiple dishes without them tasting the same.
It still took me a really long time browsing through my Pinterest food board to come up with the combination of meals for this week and next week. Like. A really really long time and by the end I was ravenously hungry.
Here is what I came up with for us this week. I have put an (*) by the items with a recipe and I will share those recipes throughout the week.
Breakfasts (these are options for each day not all for the same breakfast)
Eggs & Sausage
Greek Yogurt and frozen berries or honey with almonds
Lunches (options for each day)

Chicken with Parmesean Green Beans
