Meal Plan Monday

It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a meal planning post but don’t worry I have been eating! As you’ll know if you’ve read any of the other posts our main goal with our grub is to eat well on a low budget.

Recently we’ve been trying to avoid meat Monday – Friday in order to be more healthy and to be more mindful when it comes to what we eat. It’s very easy to think ‘whats for dinner?’ ‘oh we have chicken lets have…’ etc We wanted to get away from the idea that meat has to be the main event. It’s actually made us appreciate it a lot more and we’re really enjoying being more imaginative when it come to dinner time.

This week Matt is working late so I’ve tried to pick things that I can either cook quickly or prepare during the day when Luisa sleeps and cook or reheat later when it suits us.

Monday – Mac & Cheese

Tuesday – Fish tacos with refried beans

Wednesday – Spinach & Ricotta (or Feta) Cannelloni (or Lasagne)

Thursday – Courgette & Pea Risotto

Friday – Buffalo Cauliflower & Chickpea Burgers

Saturday – Chicken Burgers with Boston Baked Beans

Sunday – ROAST 🙂

Next week I’ll be back with my menu & will add photos from this weeks meals. If there are any recipes you’d like me to share just leave a comment or tweet me @hibabyblog
