Challenge last Wednesday in order to get healthy and loose some extra pounds. I have been eating mostly lean protein and fresh produce with a few complex carbs midday. Dinner can be a bit tricky as my boys do enjoy pasta. I have just bean making either fish or chicken and then different side dishes that suits the kids. Thankfully the boys like fresh produce too!
I’m anticipating this week to be our busiest of themonth. I “knocked it out of the ballpark” with my chicken enchiladas last Monday and DIY salads came just when we needed a break from cooking and “heavy” food
As a reminder, here's how themenu plan works. With everything you've got going on this spring, and with summer just around the corner, this weeklymenu plan will provide inspiration and make life a little bit easier
