Sometimes it is hard to get a menu together for the week. To make it easier I’m posting my weekly menu here!
This week I was at Trader Joe’s shopping. All of the meals can be made with ingredients from there! I love Trader Joe’s! The prices are good, they have great pre-chopped veggies, and you can find a lot of variety. Organic foods are plentiful and it is kid friendly (Finn loves to hunt for Shelby the turtle)! However don’t assume everything is healthy and clean just because it is at Trader Joe’s – make sure and read the labels!
While we do our best to count containers correctly sometimes we go a little over or under… We may add in a treat or two… We like all of you do our best to stick to the plan!
We choose a lot of convenience items for…convenience such as pre-cooked meats and pre-cooked frozen rice. It is usually more frugal to purchase fresh or dried but our lives are BUSY and convenience items help us stay on track! It is your choice.
The menu is for the lowest calorie bracket so don’t forget to adjust it so it fits your program!
Hi! This is Donna. I am a grandmother, mom, wife, and a teacher. I also love cookbooks, love to bake and really enjoy food! At age 56 I have developed a love of fitness after losing 46 pounds on the 21 Day Fix! I have always struggled with my weight! When menopause struck and things got totally out of control… My weight only went up not down. My muffin top turned into a bakery shelf. I desperately wanted to lose weight and improve my health. I wanted to be able to play and keep up with my beautiful grandchildren. Nothing I tried worked until I found the 21 Day Fix. Now instead of a tight size 16 I wear a comfortable 8 and even some 6’s! At age 56 I am in the best shape of my life. My current goals are to improve my strength and to continue toning my body. I along with my daughter, Danielle, am here to help you reach your own fitness goals! You are never too young or old to become fitter, healthier, and stronger!
