This week I’m going to take a different approach to my meal planning. You see, in the past I’ve planned out various dinners and then have been at some what of a loss as to what to take for lunch. I end up taking a salad or canned soup, which is very healthy, but doesn’t satisfy me for the whole work day.
Instead I’m going to cook a few meals this weekend, which I’ll pack up for this week’s lunches. For dinners, Neal and I are going to do salads, loaded with lots of veggies and lean protein.
I don’t have a solid meal plan just yet, but here are some of the recipes I’ve been dying to try.
My goal is to pack lunches that are filling and are a good balance of protein, produce, and carbohydrates.
I really need to get my dinners under control, as I’ve been eating too much food between 6PM and 10PM since Christmas. I’m hoping that switching my larger meal to lunch will help with how hungry I’ve been after work and that eating salads for dinner will help to keep my calorie count/Points intake under my goal.
