One week meal plan and grocery list

One-Week Meal Plan & Grocery List

This meal plan includes a grocery list and simple, healthy recipes to cover all five breakfasts, lunches, and dinners.  Prep on Sunday and enjoy some extra time throughout the work week!

Hello and thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you’ve had a good week.

When I thought about my goals for the blog this year (and I use that term loosely, since I never actually wrote anything down), I knew I wanted to focus more on creating value with each post.  I started Blunders and Absurdities as a fun side project and have no current plans to turn it into something different, but I still view it somewhat like a business.

One of the first ideas that came to mind when I planned out posts for the month was a meal plan, mostly because I wish someone would create these for me.  Even though I’m unemployed and have a lot of time.  So I sifted through my Pinterest profile and pages saved from Cooking Light and compiled a weeklong schedule of relatively healthy, inexpensive meals.  The quantities will serve two people but can be divided or multiplied easily.  Let me know what you think!

  2. Until this weekend, I hadn’t grocery shopped properly for at least a month.  Just didn’t feel like it.  Nothing sounded good except ice cream.  When I had other things to pick up at Target, I would throw some random food items along with coffee grounds and 25-calorie hot chocolate packets (the essentials) into my cart and eat those.

I finally snapped out of it on Saturday and decided to make a meal plan for this week, which I’m sharing today.  The shopping list and portion sizes are for one, with the exception of the yellow cake baked oatmeal which serves 10.  You can eat this “oatmeal” at any time of day and pretend it’s healthy, so it’s nice to have on hand.


What, you don’t unpack your groceries like this?
