Do you meal plan? Do you love it? Hate it?
Now that I have gone back to work, meal planning is going to be more important than ever! I used to be able to go grocery shopping whenever I felt like it and take my time. Then all afternoon I’d be planning and making dinner. Not so much anymore.
When I come home from working all day the absolute last thing I feel like doing is taking the time to make a big healthy meal. (Can I get an Amen!) I am starving from running around taking care of patients all day and I want to eat right then! I have to admit, I had a bit of a rough time with sticking to my diet this week. I did awesome during breakfast and lunch, but when I got home and was trying to get the dinner situation figured out, I was so hungry that I snacked before dinner. If you recall, I am a bit of a food addict, and snacking doesn’t go well for me! While I didn’t gain any weight, I haven’t lost any this week either. (que the sad music :-()
This coming week, starting today, I am planning to put my crock pot to great use! I will be following the “Seven Day Clean Eating Slow-Cooker Recipe eBook Brought to you by your coaches and friends at Strengthen You” I have my shopping list all ready and plan to head to the store soon. I will let you know how the meals turn out and if this crock pot meal plan helps me to be more successful this week! (If the food is good, I may share some of the recipes.)
Here is what is on the menu for the week…
