Okay with this weeks meal plan I’m taking a spin on the Blogtober prompt of Get into the Groove. I’m not cheating, honestly. I struggle so much with making a weekly meal plan and last week I didn’t make one at all. Next week I need to be more organised and get my groove back!
There are ways of getting back into meal planning and being online can give you a plethora of meal ideas. It can sometimes be overwhelming though. I look at my sorry shelf of cookery books and remember the times I’d spend hours flicking through for inspiration, but now it can be done with a click and search for ingredients you have to hand. But how to stop being overwhelmed by it all is a whole new problem.
Here is what I do when I’m looking for inspiration:
Take a look at meal planning menu link up like Katy Kicker’s. I always find something on someone else’s menu that I want to add to mine..
Use a food box service. There are many available but I currently choose Mindful Chef because they healthier meals and I’m trying to improve my health. There are many other’s to choose from like Gousto and Simply Cook. You need to choose what suits your lifestyle and budget but they can be a great help for creating inspiration for meals
My final tip is to check the recipes section on online shopping sites. Often you can find something and add the ingredients to your basket with a click. I find this so convenient and use it often. I do make sure that I don’t add stuff I already have in my cupboard though.
So this week, I’m off the music track and using get into the groove as a foodie prompt.
Weekly Meal Plan – Get Into the Groove
- Monday – Lasagne
- Tuesday – Chicken Chausser with cauliflower rice (Mindful Chef)
- Wednesday – meatballs and spaghetti
- Thursday – Mexican chilli and sweet potato nachos (Mindful chef)
- Friday – fish/chicken chips (maybe a take out??)
- Saturday – Jerk Chicken, rice and peas, sweetcorn fritters
- Sunday – Roast Chicken Dinner (younger kids have begged me.)
I’m hoping I can stick to the plan as I’m in hospital again next week. I have treatment for four hours every day and it leaves me with massive headaches and fatigue. Having a plan will help a lot. (Graham does most of the cooking but I have to shop and plan and help if I can.)
