Every Sunday I sit down and write the following weeks meal plan. Having it written down definitely gives me a focus and keeps me on track.
I like to plan Monday to Sunday so that on a weekend I can go out and get anything that I need for the week ahead. If I don’t do this I find that I end up at the supermarkets everyday. Cooking from scratch isn’t much fun when you haven’t planned ahead and end up not having half of the ingredients that you need.
Here’s a plan for my week ahead, all of which are slimming world friendly –
Monday – Beef Ragu
Tuesday – Cheesy Chicken and Bacon Pasta
Wednesday – Cajun Dirty Rice
Thursday – Ham and Pepper Omelette, SW Chips and Baked Beans
Friday – Chicken and Sweetcorn Calzone
Saturday and Sunday this week we are going to be away hence there being nothing planned for those two days.
I have home-made soup ready for my lunches at work and mugshots as a back up plan. With plenty of fruit, yogurt and 10 cal jelly for snacking. With the odd treat thrown in for good measure.
