#elf4health Meal Plan [Monday]


This weekend’s challenge was to create a meal plan for the upcoming week. I used to do this all the time. There was something thereapeudic about pulling out my favorite cookbooks, opening a ridiculous amount of tabs with my favorite blogs, pulling up my DVR, and planning the week ahead. Maybe it’s my type A tendencies. Maybe it is my previous eating disordered self wanting to come through and control things. Or maybe I just like to look at pictures of food. Whatever it is, I got out of the habit when the school year ended, and I need to get back into the habit! Meal planning saves time, energy, and money!

I’m trying some new recipes this time around, thanks to Pinterest. I’m hoping I find some new favorites to add to our normal rotation.
