Meal Plan Monday: 3/2-3/8/15

Wondering how or why to meal plan? Read this first. Wondering what all the letters (S, E, FP) mean after each meal? Check this out. I've also added page numbers if the recipe comes from the Trim Healthy Mama book. If you're still in search of even more meals or drinks take a look at my top 30 "E" mealsmy top 30 "S" mealsmy 20 favorite THM soups and my 20 favorite shakes, smoothies and cold drinks. Also, be sure to follow me on Pinterest so you never miss a meal plan, tip or recipe.

Don't have time to read it all now? Pin it for later.

My food related goals for the week include:
  • Cook a pot of Great Northern Beans to freeze. (I accomplished this today)
  • Do most of my food prep work on Monday so I can throw together lunches and dinners more quickly throughout the week. (I also accomplished this today)
  • Drink half my body weight each day in water, herbal tea and GGMS.
  • Go through my deep freezer and take an inventory of what's in there. I'm trying to use up a lot of what is in there before I place another bulk chicken order through Zaycon Foods. (affiliate link)
