Yesterday's #JanuaryJoy post was to make your own calendar. I was feeling absolutely rotten yesterday evening and spent the whole night in bed - so apologies for not joining in. Just so happens I had already organised my calendar, as I had ordered a new family organiser at the start of the year.
Anyway, today's prompt is to plan some clean eats.
This is my cue to get back into Meal Planning. I was doing so well at it last year, but then I moved house and my routine all went to pot. Seems like Michelle over on Florence Finds has a similar idea and has some lovely sounding meal suggestions.
I have a list of meals the kids and I would both enjoy, versus meals that I would have when I'm on my own.
Here's some of my regular occurrences in the food department...
- Meatballs and rice
- Chicken, leek, pea & pesto pasta
- Mild chilli with rice & tortilla wraps
- Macaroni cheese with garlic bread
- Salmon pasta bake
- Parmesan chicken with baked beans & veg
- Sausage casserole
- Pasta Bolognese
- Scrambled egg, beans & toast
- Gammon, mashed potatoes & veg
- Tuna pasta
Just Me (if I'm not having dinner at a restaurant, or having take away):
- Chicken & salad
- Salmon & salad
- Baked potato
One of my goals for this year is to eat more real food. I was doing very well with this in the middle of last year, and it really improved my Crohn's symptoms.
I must get back into the way of things, and my motivation has got to be my health.
