Meal Plan Monday - Healthy meals for a busy week

This week is going to be busy, busy, busy! We have so much to do and so, so much scary paperwork to arrange. I tell ya what folks, buying a house is stressful. We have to go to several appointments, sign so many documents, and it feels like we are selling our souls in order to have a nice place to live. So there's that. 

My focus with our meals is to make large portions so that we can eat leftovers at least twice this week, but to also make sure that we're still eating home cooked meals (week 2 of no takeout will be a success!), and that the foods we are eating are also healthy. Most of the recipes are pretty easy or quick to make, and those that aren't will be made in large batches so we can have leftovers or get a freezer meal out of them. 


Breakfasts: 


Eggs (hard boiled, scrambled)
Oven baked oatmeal

Welcome to Mommyhood: Carrot cake bars


Lunches: 

Leftovers
Savory pancakes or muffins (freeze extra)
Salads
Skinny sweet potato croquettes (recipe coming soon!) 
Tuna salad wraps
Healthy pizza

Tortilla pizza with arugula, green onions, cheese, tomato paste, and mushrooms



Dinners:

  • Lentil sloppy joes (an experiment
  • Leftovers 
  • Oven baked stuffed peppers
  • Chili (definitely will have leftovers and a freezer portion. This is my go to meal during a busy time)
