With hubby starting work again this week in a job that see's him away from the house early in the morning until late in the evening, I need to be more organised so I've now starting meal planning. I wish I had done this a lot sooner as it really makes things easier.
We are both back on a healthy eating mission after consuming way too much naughty food over the Christmas/new year period plus a few weeks after whilst my family were visiting from Australia. We're actually having different meals to the kids which is silly as it makes more work for me but i'm batch cooking lots of their meals and using the slow cooker. Their meal plan will be in a separate post.
I was browsing all of my cookbooks for healthy meal inspiration and I found it a bit too much so I decided to just use one cookbook per week and some recipes of my own. This week I've decided to use Kayla Itsines - 28 day healthy eating and lifestyle book. I've followed her on Facebook for a long time. I've completely fallen in love with this book. It's packed full of recipes with food we love to eat.
It's Chinese New Year this weekend so we're also planning to have something to mark the occasion but something that's as healthy as possible. You can't beat a fakeaway.
Our meal plan for the week beginning 23rd January 2017:
Monday - Chicken Gyros with Tzatziki (using a wholemeal wrap)
Tuesday - Fish Tacos (using a wholemeal wrap)
Wednesday - Chicken, Sweet Potato, Caramelised Onion and Rocket Pizza (using a wholemeal pitta bread as the base)
Thursday - Jerk Chicken with Rice and Beans, Mango Salsa and Lime Yoghurt
Friday - Halloumi Burgers (my own recipe)
Saturday - Sweet and Sour Chicken with Rice (homemade healthy fakeaway)
Sunday - Roast Dinner (at a family dinner)
There you have it. I'll update you at the end of the week with what we had for breakfast and lunch too.
