What I feed my belly Wednesdays

Yesterday I posted that Wednesdays would be my meal prep posting. I am thinking I will post it on Mondays instead. Because that makes more sense. 

Don't argue. 

It does. 

"Meal prep Mondays". I know you've heard it. 

Well now it will be on this blog. 

I didn't sleep well. Momisms. I also didn't work out this morning. My alarm didn't go off because my phone died. But this isn't excuse Wednesday.

Haha. Ha.....

 I will fit my workout in somewhere.

I warned you I didn't sleep well. 

On the meal prepping.

My meal plan looks like this:

when it starts out. I base it on what I have in my fridge and pantry, and I improvise when necessary.

It ends up changing a couple time before it's done and sometimes I change it up for requests from my family(which are usually normal food request I turn paleo or clean)

Sundays have turned into meal prep days. It's the most convenient day. I prep and cook as much as I can for the weekly dinners and sometimes breakfast, and lunches are leftovers.

My 2 yo has simple lunches because they have snacks as well, provided by the school, and my 7yo packs her own lunch with my supervision.

This is this weeks menu:

Sunday: Sundays are leftovers. Always leftovers. Get them out of my house! There is this song the kids like called "The Leftovers are Coming to Get You"...... basically the story of our lives.

Monday: Buffalo Chicken & Eggplant Lasagna Bomb I like crockpot meals that have the whole meal in one. no sides.

Tuesday: Tacos. Made with This Clean Eating Taco Seasoning from The Gracious Pantry The rest of the family eats them on tortillas. I eat them with lots of veggies and lots of avocado.

Wednesday: Parmesan Chicken  sans Parmesan.

Thursday: Casserole Pizza I'm trying this with ground turkey because, well, it's what I have. The end.

Friday: Fridays around these here parts are Movie nights. the rest of the family gets pizza. My dinner varies but it's basically a night off from cooking and cleaning for me. A very anticipated night off.

Saturday: BBQ Chicken with veggies and maybe Cauliflower Mash.

Breakfast this week is mostly leftovers. Although Monday was my own spin on a recipe from my Against All Grain cookbook with poached eggs, her hollandaise sauce, and leftover salmon. The kids eat scrambled eggs and bacon pretty religiously. Sometimes they add in tomatoes and a muffin my mom sends to our house. And there's fruit. Always fruit.

I'll leave out the fact that I have cereal that escapes my cabinets once in a while. We will just not talk about that one.

You may have noticed that I don't have much variety. No reason except I am limited on groceries this week. I don't discriminate against any meats. We make do with what we have. Still all looks amazing to me.

I linked you to the recipes.
Almost everything I use I Pin.

You're welcome.

&This is what my kids lunches looked like this week:

Or some kind of variation like it. 

That's really it. It's pretty simple once you get the hang of it. And once you get into a routine (which took me a couple years.. I'm a little slow) it makes life easier. When wrenches are thrown in you go with the flow because you've prepped as well as you could. Hope this helped :)

Just another story.

I have been told telling my story will help.. people. I don't see how that is the case but I figure there is some reason I have dealt with the things that I have. So I'll start out simple.


Crippling. Suffocating. Like a straight jacket warn under water.

Sounds so dramatic. So exaggerated. But it's so real. There's a quote that describes it perfectly "You don't need water to feel like you're drowning, do you?" no. I don't.

I've always had anxiety. for as long as I remember. After I had my youngest child it got significantly worse. It was no longer a panic attack that I would get over once I figured out or was proven everything would be okay. It was tightness in my chest all night and I didn't know why. It was someone is going to get sick and I know that will kill us all. It was sleeping in his room every night for months. It was waking up every few hours to check his breathing. It was my daughter has a sore tooth it's all goi…

Meal Prep Monday 11/25/13

My days are a haze of dishes laundry sweeping meal prep dog poop people poop making people foods and watching people eat cake and pizza. And Ice cream.  I never realized how much junk food I was surrounded by until very recently.  But it's cool. I have coconut butter, dates, coffee and Lara bars. Life is good. :)
Sun- chicken "fingers" and sweet potato fries with mixed veg.
M- Shrimp and (leftover) chicken and "fried riced cauliflower"
T- chicken tortilla-less soup
W- breakfast for dinner - self explanatory. Easy. Cheap. Favorite.
Th- thanksgiving !! At someone else's house ;)
Fri- taco night. I have renamed pizza night taco night. Because I can. Because I'm mom. This week will be ground turkey tacos because it's the cheapest if bought in  bulk.
Sat- leftovers

Breakfast: I made myself a frittata and  hubby has breakfast sandwiches I make him. He's super picky about healthy foods and if left to his own devices lives off bagel bites and chips. Which …

Whole30 again? Why?

I'm on day 9 of a whole30. I've done them before and I eat FAIRLY decent(I have my moments) but I felt like it was time to do another.
I was feeling fatigued, anxious, depressed, and my skin was atrocious. I wasn't sleeping well and my hormones were very obviously out of whack. I know a whole 30 improves all of these things so much so my goal was to just jump in and do one. I know how this goes, I've read all the books, I've done a handful of them within the last few years, and I am not new to meal prep. In fact, I have had several false starts in all of January and February of 2017 and I meal prepped almost every weekend of said months. My best friend said that she was ready to do one after a long time of considering it and I jumped on board. Something clicked this time and I have so far been successful.
Why am I doing it this time.
Besides the obvious benefits everyone explains about a whole30, I specifically wanted to feel my best mentally and physically because…
