Hey there! Coming on strong with a comeback. Spent a weekend away
with my husband Saša celebrating 20 years of marriage. As a bonus, we got to catch up with Jason and Roz. Came back to a crazy schedule of three kids sports practices and doctor’s appointments. Somehow amidst the craziness I lost 2 pounds! So I’ve planned out our menu for the week. It’s the only way to survive and darn it, I want to get back to where I was after this roller coaster ride!
This is for all the moms out there- life is nuts. Duh, you know that. My kitchen is a conveyor belt and food better be available and cooked. I work part-time and volunteer the rest. This year, I will make a commitment to track my journey and post Sunday planning.
Since this is an “A” week as far as veggies and meals go, this is what is on the menu and I just spent three hours cooking. Ready for dinners, lunches and all the rest! I don’t need to cook during the week now so when unexpected things happen – picking up sick kids, dealing with snow days etc. you know,
life! – I don’t have to worry that there’s nothing ready to eat. It’s all done! Plus, some can go into freezer. Anyone else have a plan that works well for their family?
Menu for the week:
Mix and match so I can easily hit my macros –
Baked salmon with Dijon mustard
Roasted cauliflower rice
Roasted kale and Brussels sprouts
Family meals –
Zucchini, bacon and hummus soup
Turkey sausage and peppers with pizza sauce
