Meal Planning Mondays – Meal Prep Plan 7 : Week of 11/1/16 to 17/1/16 !

I have been so far lagging behind with my meal planning resolution this year. I took a mega break of sorts, Diwali took a big chunk out the healthy eating goals of November, then I went home ( I am hopeless at eating well when temptations galore), then two big fat Indian weddings ( oh, nightmare if you are trying to maintain / lose weight ) and the I got swayed while pampering my sweet sister who was visiting me (to be honest, I pampered myself too under that pretext).

Well well, no point crying over the spilt milk. Hope I will be as good as I am before I took a break for a while atleast. How’s the New Year treating you?

The Meal Plan with the shopping list for the same is as under:

Plan no. 14 after a loooong break. Back to routine after one Diwali hiatus, two big fat Indian weddings, one long trip home and a rules-free week when the sister was here. Its 10 long weeks without regimented meal planning. Hope I can be as good this year as I have been for the 4 months before I took this break. Week 14 of #beingarmedwithaplan . P.S. There is no prep for the sprouts, ( it slipped out of my mind to add in there) in the plan, because I usually make a big batch of sprouts over the weekend and refrigerate. If nothing, I usually atleast have the process of soaking started sometime during the weekend. P.P.S There is far less cutting chopping involved this week because when I went home last time, I got myself a big batch of green beans and veggies all cleaned, trimmed and chopped, thanks to my awesome mom, mom in law and grand mom. So, I am having fun while the stock in the freezer lasts! 😎😎 #mealplanning #weeklymealplanning #newyearresolution #groceryshoppingsimplified #gettingorganized #mealprepping #igers
