Almost Meal prep Monday.

Yesterday was a day off. A very Rare day off. Because even on weekends and holidays, it never seems relaxing around here.
But Yesterday... We had no plans. We did nothing except cooked a few things and cleaned up a bit, the girls got some crafts done...
It was nice.
I am so happy to be back to reality today.
I miss my kids, but I like routine. I thrive on it, actually.

So basically today is the best day of the month for me. Sort of. My head is the clearest and most level headed today than it will be all month. My cycle takes a pretty big toll on my mental well being, and today is relieving to say the least.
A good day to eat clean, be positive, schedule, and meal plan:

I made this over the weekend. Once in a while this is what meal preps look like for me. And it never goes to any other stages. This week, however, it will evolve as finances, and inspiration hits. It will change the way it needs to for our schedule and needs.
We have an extremely busy fall season around here. Lots of birthdays, an anniversary, holidays, school, etc... , so working with what we already have is what needs to be done. 
So I looked in the cabinets and fridge and figured it out. 
True life. 
We will utilize eggs as much as possible, and might even (gasp) used some canned food in the cabinets. (Pasta anyone?) not me. I'd rather eat the same food over and over than gorge myself on pasta and bread. Believe me. I had cake and pizza over the weekend. I don't want that feeling back.... 
But I still have to eat what I have. And this is how we get creative with it. :)

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 Day 14: November 2013

Two weeks in. Half way. Kinda. Almost.
Regardless, I'm doing well. Feeling well that is. Kind of bored with meals due to low funds and time. But my body is reaping benefits. I may be speaking too soon but my pull towards sweet is suddenly lessened. I know I like them and I want them kind of. But I'm okay with not having them. I'm opting out of having them. I woke up pretty happy about my skin. Partially disappointed that I will have to keep sugar out of my diet for a clear skin tone but stoked I might have found a culprit.  No breakfast picture. My dog seems to be interfering with my time schedule. He's off schedule and wants everyone on his time..... I, apparently, was meant to have a mild mannered, old dog. Sigh.  Anyway, I made a frittata over the weekend with broccoli, leftover carnitas, onion and of course egg. Had a slice this am, coffee with coconut milk and a little strawberry and banana.  Snack time: Hadn't had one of these in weeks. So much yum.
