We successfully made it through week one of the meal plan and I am starting to feel like myself again! Slowly but surely I am starting to get my groove back in the kitchen and I hope you are too! I absolutely loved getting messages from y’all last week about how you were loving week one of the meal plan and I think you are going to love this week just as much! I am a firm believer in the fact that you don’t have to give up your favorite foods or eat just salads when eating healthy! Instead I believe in eating real foods that are homemade with no yucky ingredients that will leave you feeling satisfied and happy! Sound good to you?
I thought so! Let’s do this!
This week I included a few recipes that will help you utilize leftovers to not only help with budget but also with time spent in the kitchen! Everyone needs a couple of make ahead food items like my carrot cake donuts or chocolate coconut energy balls to have ready to go on chaotic mornings or busy afternoons! And of course I made sure to include recipes that are kid-friendly and that the whole family can enjoy!
If you are making any of these meal plan recipes, make sure to follow me on Instagram and #mydiaryofus so I can see what you are cooking up all week long!
