Meal Planning

I’m a planner, especially when it comes to the meals we eat. We eat most of our meals at home and I thought that I would share our meal plan for the meals that we ate in September. I’ll do my best to link to recipes that I have used and share pictures. We have had visitors for the past month and towards the end of the month life got a bit hectic and I didn’t record or snap pictures of the meals. All the pictures are iphone pics, so sorry!

Our meals consist of high protein, lots of veggies, some fruit, usually low dairy,  and low to no gluten. You’ll notice a lot of ground beef this month, it’s because that’s pretty much all we had left of our quarter cow we purchased at the beginning of summer. I buy most of our groceries at HEB, our local grocery store. I also visit Costco and Trader Joe’s about every other month.

I should also mention I cook enough for us to have both dinner and leftovers for lunch the next day. Addy eats what we eat. Her favorites below are ribs, pizza spaghetti pie and meatballs with marinara!

Here’s what my planning looks like. I usually plan out in 4-5 day increments for grocery shopping and defrosting meat. IMG_1495
