Meal Plan Monday: 2/24-3/1/14

Wondering how or why to meal plan? Read this first.

I was talking with some girlfriends last week and they suggested that I do a full meal plan this week. So this week I will be sharing what I eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner and include a full grocery list. Hopefully this will give you some fresh ideas on what to serve your family. As you will see I'm not very creative in the breakfast department, mostly because I loathe breakfast. Up until this year, I probably ate breakfast 5-10 times a year! I know, crazy right? My poor mom battled with me all my growing up years to just get me to eat something, anything for breakfast. Sorry mom!

My usual go-to was leftover spaghetti or pizza or cucumbers with salt. I remember the look of horror on his face when I revealed to my (then future) husband about my breakfast choices. It still grosses him out ten years later if I eat left over pizza for breakfast. Don't tell him, but that's partially why I continue to do it! :)

Here's what we will be eating this week:

B - 0% Plain Greek Yogurt with Truvia and peanut butter mixed in
L - Buffalo chicken wrap with fresh veggies and fruit
