{ feed ME - take note & prep }

What's in my fridge this week - lots of veggies, fruit, eggs, water and lean proteins. (click on it to enlarge image above).

I clean out the fridge and reorganize it each Sunday so I don't forget about the stuff in the back before it goes bad. I like to store leftovers and prepped food in clear glass containers so its easier to see the contents.

On Sundays, I also take note of what we have on hand, make up a meal plan for the week. Before I plan the meals I look at the calendar and develop a realistic weekly meal plan around our schedule & commitments for the week. I then do my one grocery shopping trip a week (usually 2 store stops) and prep the food for the week ahead (cut up veggies, fruit, etc).

Our weekly Feed ME meal plan this week:

Monday - BLT's & lentil soup
Tuesday - spinach, tomato whole wheat pasta with salad
Wednesday -salmon, brown rice & edamame
Thursday - halibut with roasted veggies
Friday - out after taking kids to rec center (healthy mexican food at ZIA)
Saturday - at friends house
Sunday - veggie chili (from freezer) or leftovers

This weeks goal: Drink more water and more green smoothies. Stay healthy! (I've been sneezed, drooled & puked on all week by my little guy who has been sick).

Hi Meredith - I'll do a post on some of my fav green smoothie recipes soon but quickly here is one of my favs and a good starter one (the pineapple makes it sweeter and easier to drink while you are getting used to it). My favorite green smoothie recipe is:

1/2 cup Fresh pineapple
1 Frozen banana
1 cup Frozen fruit (I like strawberries, mangos & peaches)
1 peeled orange
TONS of fresh baby spinach (2 handfuls)
1 scoop of Whey Protein
Green Supplement (I like Trader Joes Very Green Supplement - 1 TBS of that). Whole Foods makes some good ones too.
1/2 cup to 1 cup of Water to blend

Hi Christy - The water pitcher has lemon & cucumber slices in it (had this at red mountain spa and never drank so much yummy water in my life). The glass pitchers are all from The Container Store. www.containerstore.com

Sounds like a great plan. Cleaning out the frig every Sunday is such a good thing to do. I try to do an inventory of what we have, but actually cleaning it out would do wonders, I'm sure.

Hope your little guy is feeling better!
