Because I cook for one, planning meals can be tricky. Creating a balance between eating a variety of foods (in terms of flavors) and not wasting food is a challenge. When it's easy (because I can do only the most basic math), I halve recipes. Leftovers almost always make my lunches, and sometimes I eat leftovers for dinner a second night in a row. Learning how to freeze and later thaw things has helped tremendously, but still, my meal plans are a little abnormal. Instead of the typical "Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, etc" meal plan, I just plan by meal types. Sometimes my plans don't cover an entire week, so I do a "menu plan" as opposed to a weekly plan.
Here's this week's agenda!
- Oatmeal w/ fresh berries & ground flax meal
- Banana chocolate chip muffins w/ fresh fruit
- Black bean burgers w/ potatoes and kale
- Pasta w/ garden veggies
- Spicy PB pasta w/ kale
