Although I don’t do it every week, meal planning helps my family stay on track with healthy eating. Last week, we didn’t meal plan and we ate out three times, including one fast food outing. That’s not our normal, but for me, it’s a reminder to get back to meal planning and help us get on track.
I bought the March/April issue of Canadian Running Magazine. Something caught my attention on the cover; the title Running Fuel is one of my favorite blogging topics. Inside are some interesting healthy recipes that my husband and I thought we’d try this week. So, I’ve created my meal plan around these new recipes.
I’ve never tried any of these recipes and some of them contain some ingredients I don’t care much for, like lentils and kale, but I will keep an open mind and since I am in training. After all, overnight oats, a Pinterest find, were new to us a few months ago but have quickly became a family favorite.
