Since I had a little ol’ half marathon yesterday I took today off from running. My legs felt fine and I know I could bust out a run, but running injuries are often overuse injuries and creep up on us. Better to skip one day of running than 6 weeks like when I hurt my IT Band.
So, I made breakfast before work and hoped to get in a workout at the gymbo. Egg burrito with laughing cow and an apple.
On the way home from my morning shift I stopped to get groceries. We were pretty much out of everything – milk, bread, eggs, veggies…
So, I basically spent our entire grocery budget for the week and I’m unsure exactly what I’m making?!?! When I got home and put everything away I decided to make a meal plan with what we have and make it work.
Meal Plan for 3/26/12
Breakfasts – Egg sandwiches or Oatmeal
Lunches – Soup or Salad w/ leftovers
Snacks: Yogurt, Nuts, String Cheese, Hard boiled Eggs, Protein Shake
Monday – Turkey and Kale Soup (inspired by Giada, but I’m making up the recipe)
Tuesday – Sweet potatoes and crab cakes (frozen)
Wednesday – WW couscous with beans
Thursday – Chicken stir-fry
Friday – Heading out of town… so I stocked Ben up with juice, chorizo and eggs. That’s all he needs to be happy.
Saturday – Out of town!
Question: Do you do all your grocery shopping for the week in one day or hit up the stores often?
I like going to the store, but I end up spending way too much.
