February Meal Plans

Standard

 

A whole month into the new year! ¬†I’m sure these months have started passing by more quickly in recent years…. but maybe that just comes with getting older. ūüėČ

But no matter how quickly time passes the amount of meals we eat stays the same! ¬†I’ve been trying to eat more simple, wholesome meals and snacks (and the scale is finally moving in the right direction — slowly). ¬†Freezer meals are always on my go-to list to help me on those crazy, chaotic days. ¬†Have you tried freezer cooking? ¬†I hate the prep work and cook day but love to reap the rewards later!

As you probably noticed, I didn’t add any fruit and vegetables — or any sides, really — on this plan. ¬†I generally pull something out of the freezer or pantry to go along with whatever we’re eating. ¬†I try and buy fresh fruit and vegetable that are in season, readily available and (let’s be honest) easy to prepare. ¬†Our go to fruits are bananas, oranges, apples, pears, avocado, blueberries and strawberries. ¬†For veggies we generally rotate between Brussels sprouts, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, squash, ¬†green beans, spinach, kale (or other greens) and occasionally corn.

I most¬†of the meals here (except the veggie burgers and the ones with added links, of course) are either my recipe or a family recipe. ¬†If you have any questions I’d be happy to try and answer them. ¬†I like to find a good recipe and then “healthify” it. ¬†My auto-correct feature is screaming that healthify isn’t a word, but I think it should be.

Happy, healthy eating!
