I don’t know about you but I am desperate for some good, healthy food. My body feels like it’s been absolutely rammed full of junk the past few months and I’ve really got to try and eat more fruit and veg. Also, I really want to lose a stone of weight over the next couple of months so I’m going to be eating a lot less sugar and fewer carbs. The sugar I can do, the carbs are a problem as I love them but I’m going to try because I have two big trips abroad this year and I don’t want to be podgy for them so whilst I am going to get some more new meals on the go, they’ll also be lots more basic fish’n’veg combos.
Before I launch into the meal-planning I just wanted to remind everyone of two things.
1. Firstly, we have our Facebook group. If you haven’t joined, come over and find us. The idea is to use it as a source of chat, inspiration, tips and hints for meal planning. You can find the group HERE.
2. Secondly there is a collaborative Pinterest board in action ready for you to share all your favourite #mealplanningmonday family meals with the world! If you want to pin your own tried and tested recipes from your blog, then do get in contact so I can add you to the board. The board currently has 640 followers with more following every day.
Okay, enough of that! On with the meal plan.
Salmon fillet with steamed greens (& new potatoes for the husband)
Bang bang chicken salad
Sweet and sour pork
Balsamic chicken farfalle
Roast dinner – lamb I think!
Only five meals as I’m eating out one day with my little cherub and the boys will have pizza!
So, over to you guys! If you’re new to my blog or #mealplanningmonday all you have to do is this – write a blog post about your meal plan for the week and submit the URL of your post using the Linkytools below. If you’ve not got a blog but want to join in, that’s fine – just leave a comment below telling us what you’re planning this week. Any questions, just holler at me via email (in the contact page) or on Twitter @madamding.
I’ve tried to drum up some interest on Twitter and would like to get some more people talking about #mealplanningmonday and joining in during 2014 – all RT’s and shares on Facebook etc would be greatly appreciated! The more the merrier and more inspiration for us all!
Have a great week, the first back in the old routine and I’ll catch up with you next week!
