Meal Planning Monday – 12 January 2015

It’s so long since I’ve done a blog post – nevermind an #MPM one – that WordPress virtually said “and YOU are?” as I logged in. That’s not to say I haven’t been meal planning, just that I haven’t made time to blog them.  (I have, however, been Instagramming the crap out of my meals).  No New Year’s crash diet for me, just a commitment to improve what my family and I are eating.

This week’s dinners are:

Peach Balsamic Rosemary Chicken

Curried Chicken

Slow Cooker Pineapple Pulled Pork

Sweet Potato Spinach Quiche

Slow Cooker Beef and Broccoli

Breakfast for Dinner (aka Brinner)

Left overs

I’m even organised enough to plan lunches, which will either be left overs from the previous night’s dinner with salad, caprese salad with ham, curried chicken salad, or chicken and avocado salad. Breakfasts will be a super shake (including things like protein powder, spinach, chia seeds, flax, and frozen berries), leftovers, or scrambled egg with spinach, peppers and sweet potato.

What will you be eating this week? Why not share over on Mrs M’s Meal Planning Monday linky.


Meal Planning Monday – 15 September 2014

I’m feeling super organised this week, and my Meal Planning Monday post is just part of it. Seriously, I am a train to Awesomeville so get on board or get outta my way.

Korean BBQ Beef

Chicken Fajitas

Beef Burgers with sweet potato and  spinach

Garlic Parmesan Chicken Lasagne Bake (cooked without noodles for my pasta adverse  husband)

Chicken Schnitzel

Quinoa & Veggie Stew

Courgette & Bacon Risotto

I am going to try a new  brownie recipe, and will also be making Anzac tray bake and probably rice crispy bars, because cakes have a habit of disappearing quickly in my house.

Have a great week! If you’re lacking in inspiration head over to Mrs M’s, search Twitter for more #MealPlanningMonday goodness, or check out my Pinterest boards.

Meal Planning Monday – The Zero Waste Week Edition

4bd9b-mpmframe250I am taking part in Zero Waste Week 2014 (you can read about it here) so this week’s menu is based around what I already had at home. Interestingly, my weekly shop came in at around £30 less than usual because I already have quite a lot of food in the pantry and freezer that I tend to overlook when doing my shopping list.

Chicken Kiev with cauliflower mash and carrots

Shepherd’s Pie with Sweet Potato & Cauliflower Topping

Spaghetti Bolognese with garlic bread

Savoury mince in a giant Yorkshire pudding

Wraps with homemade chicken nuggets, sweetcorn, carrots and cucumber (kids’ request)


Freezer Roulette

Meal Planning Monday – 30 June 2014


Here we go again! Another week of healthy dinners coming up. While I didn’t stick religiously to last week’s meal plan I did follow it quite closely and am feeling much healthier as a result.

We’re out for dinner one night, but the rest of the week looks like this:

Sweet Chilli Pork with Chinese Vegetables

Meatloaf, New Potatoes, Spinach, Mixed Veg

Breakfast for Dinner

Chicken Schnitzel with Cauliflower Mash and Corn on the Cob


Chicken, Rice and Vegetable Skillet

Meal Planning Monday – 23 June 2014


Hooray! It’s Monday again. Gee, that day simply can’t come fast enough for me. Here is my clean eating weekly meal plan. I’ve had a lot going on and the quality of my meals has suffered as a result. This week is all about eating regular, healthy balanced meals, and drinking plenty of water. I’ll be scoffing:

Chicken Citrus Quinoa

Turkey Chilli

Oven Baked Mexican Fajitas

Pork Stir Fry with Courgette & Carrot ribbons

Chicken with Coriander Lime Pesto

Fridge Frittata (that old staple)


Breakfasts will mainly be yoghurt, fruit and chopped nuts, or a shake made with coconut water, protein powder, and frozen berries, while lunch and snacks will be a mix of houmous and veg, or leftovers from last night’s dinner.

What is on your menu this week? Leave me a comment, and if you include a link to a pin or a recipe, even better!
