I’m back! I’ve missed meal planning over the past few weeks but I’m back and ready to share our plan for the week. But first a look at some of the food we’ve been eating lately.
I know I’m running more lately because I am hungry all the time. I’m trying to make better choices and grab something healthy in the afternoon when I’m craving chocolate. I seriously crave chocolate in the afternoon for some reason. I’ve avoided it since Tuesday and that’s really good for me. I even chose a banana over chocolate and guess what? It was good and it satisfied my craving.
For awhile now I have just been getting up and running without eating anything before my workout. That worked just fine when I was just running easy runs. But now that I’m training again with longer workouts mid-week including speed work; it just doesn’t cut it. I’ve been eating half a Larabar before running and it helps me get through my run and not hit the wall half way through. Pecan Pie is my new favorite!
My favorite snack of the week is a juicy cut up orange. I used to peel oranges all the time instead of cut them but I saw my mother-in-law do this recently. It’s so much easier and the kids enjoy eating them like this too. We’ve been eating a lot more oranges lately because of it. And they are so good right now!
Tuna salad has made a reappearance but this time I’m eating it on a bed of greens. I can’t wait until the garden tomatoes are here because that would make this plate perfection.
I recently tried roasting beets for the first time and it was a complete game changer. I admit that I liked them the most but I was also very happy that my 12 month old daughter seems to love them and my 3 year old eats them as well. If you haven’t tried roasting beets yet, try it! They are so good. Next up, I’m trying roasted radishes!
Confession: I admit that we occasionally eat boxed mac and cheese. But we use the Annie’s brand which is a little better for you. My kids love mac and cheese and in a pinch it’s a good side for the grown-ups too.
Here’s our menu for next week:
