Weekly Meal Plan #1


One of my New Year Resolutions this year is to cook more! I am a sucker for a takeaway especially when I can't be bothered to cook. I want to start cooking at least 5 meals a week and have a more varied menu each week instead of just chicken, chinese and pizza. I know to many that probably sounds ridiculous as you cook every night of the week but I really don't cook at all apart from a Sunday roast, bunging a pizza in the oven and making the kids meals.

I'm wanting to eat healthier and get back into shape this year so combining these two resolutions I will be cooking healthier meals at least 5 times a week. Meaning I can still have a takeaway one night and have a cheat night also perhaps a pizza or a ready meal once in a while. I'm also trying to use up what's already in my freezer and cupboard this month so I have a cheaper food shop each week to save some money

Here is my meal plan for the week ahead:

Monday 

Chicken Chow Mein

Tuesday 

Nandos Style Chicken with Jacket Potato, Salad and Coleslaw

Wednesday 

Egg, Bacon, Sausage and Homemade Chips

Thursday 

Out

Friday 

Duck Breast with Roast Potatoes and Vegetables

Saturday 

Chinese Takeaway 

Sunday 

Roast Chicken 

What's on your menu this week?

  2. I've been meal planning for a while but I've just started Slimming World so I'm having to really think about what I eat. Your menu sounds fab!

  3. My intentions are to make a meal plan but I'm not very good and thinking of new ideas. Love the idea of duck breast know. 2017 may have to be the year I start meal planning, perhaps will save me money in the process..

  6. This sounds like a lovely varied menu for the week. I'm trying to get back on the wagon this week too - far too much weight has crept on over Christmas! xXx

  7. I see chinese take away on that meal plan. haha
    I am really bad for cooking too. I only cook two meals a week and they aren't always healthy. Last night we had Chicken Korma, so I suppose that was okay but I am never really bothered. Mainly because the kids won't eat it anyways. xx
