This is my last crazy week before baby. I purposely left April much more unscheduled to allow for time to relax and prepare mind, body, soul, house and toddler for a new family member. At first I thought it was probably allowing too much time, but now I’m really looking forward to it. I can tell that pregnancy is really starting to sink in.
Yesterday morning I woke up with some pretty terrible back pain. I’m thinking it was linked to my extended driving, but whatever it was, it felt almost debilitating. No more car rides for me for a while! Still, when you have a toddler and the fridge looks like this:
you don’t have much of a choice but to get moving. I put on work out clothes, headed to the gym, and proceeded to use childcare for an hour to meal plan and catch up with friends. The gym is neck and neck with Target as to where I spot the most friends; I love it!
Hailey and I hit up Food Lion on our way home and I’m noticing their natural and organic options are growing.
A stocked cart for $107. Not too shabby!
After a little playing around and food prep, the fridge now looks like this:
I promise there is a difference from the empty pic- haha. This is what a stocked fridge looks like to me!
Now to check out the dinners from last week:
Homemade meatballs (using grass fed local beef from the Bradford Store!) over spaghetti squash. Mixed super greens salad on the side.
Roasted Chicken, brown rice pilaf and field peas with salad.
Chicken tortilla soup thanks to broth and chicken from the previous night’s roasted chicken.
Homemade veggie pizza with more salad. Can you tell I was on a mixed greens, craisins, mushrooms and goat cheese kick? Top it with Brianna’s Blush Wine Vinaigrette and your taste buds will dance.
Dinner at mom and dad’s! Grilled lemon garlic salmon, sweet potato, squash and sautéed Swiss chard.
I’m feeling a little silly that there is pizza on my meal plan every single week. Without fail. What can I say, Fridays just scream pizza to me!
Is there a certain meal that you eat every single week?
What is it?
