Make-ahead Meal Plan & Weekly Food Prep {October 16th, 2016}

Make-ahead Meal Plan weekly Food Prep October 10th 2016

Hey hey! So sorry I didn’t get my meal plan post up last week. I talked about it, and shared some pictures, in the OYS Facebook group but I couldn’t find the energy to type up a blog post. I was knocked on my butt with a sinus infection. Generally, I can push through being sick but this time around I needed to relax. I also think I need a vacation. It’s been a while and I would love to take a break. I can’t decide between a cabin in the middle of nowhere or a remote island in the middle of nowhere. Either way I’m good. Hmmm maybe a big cruise line reads my blog and wants to send me on luxury vacation to review. Haha! Hey a girl can dream…but seriously luxury cruise people…call me and lets talk!

Alright, enough day dreaming, let’s chat about my meal plan. This week I tried out a couple new energy ball recipes and I’m pretty sure I will regret making these. Whoa these little bites are GOOD! Basically, energy balls are raw cookie dough but without eggs, flour, butter, and sugar. Yes, key cookie ingredients are left out  but I’m telling you these energy bites taste like deliciously scrumptious bites of cookie dough. Please and thank you! I guess what I’m trying to say is if I don’t freeze these energy bites I will eat both batches and the name of this blog might need to change. My hope is that my kiddos enjoy these energy bites as much as I do so I don’t feel compelled to eat them alone on the couch watching Bravo all day. Oooh these would be great with wine. Okay focus. Back to my meal plan.

I’ve been working on a new shrimp recipe I plan to share this week along with a classic chicken parmesan that I simplified and lightened up. Look for all those recipes to pop up in the next couple weeks.


Here’s my meal plan on Plan to Eat. You know I love Plan to Eat and so do a lot of ladies in the OYS Facebook Group. If you have questions or want someone else’s feedback or opinion on Plan to Eat then head over to the group and ask.

If you join Plan to Eat then remember to friend me over there (username organizeyourselfskinny) and you will have access to all of menus, recipes, and can print out grocery lists.
