Menu Plan Monday: Week ... ?

May 11, 2020

Let's see, I've been home since Thursday, March 12, 2020. I last remembered to publish here ... on April 7. It doesn't feel like more than a month. I mean, we've been eating on a regular basis. Every. Single. Night. And only eaten takeout a few times, less than a handful.

Menu Plan Monday: Week 4 - All The Overwhelm

I'm giving myself a break, because y'all, just like you, I have no more room in my head. I have all the overwhelm.

Last week I decided to put in a Home Chef order and I thought it wouldn't get here until Friday. April 17, but I apparently updated it to arrive earlier, but I also went grocery shopping and filled up the freezer with meat and vegetables in case it was delayed. So now we have more than enough food and I can stop stressing about going to the grocery store for a week or more.

Menu Plan Monday: Week Three - All The Carbs

March 30, 2020


Week Three Formula: PMS + being "safe at home" (silver lining right) + nothing but rain and clouds for a few days = ultimate storm for emo-eating.

Right now, I am going to give my body and brain what it craves. With some veggies thrown in just to keep things moving. And these Bulletproof gels. I've been taking them for a week now, maybe two...

After a week, I can't give a definitive answer as to whether they are working for me or not. Have any of you tried them?

So, here we are in Week 2 and I really should not be complaining. We have it relatively easy here in Massachusetts compared to other states and countries (as of Monday 3/23/2020 morning when I wrote this, who knows what it will be like tonight).

Menu Plan Monday: Isolation - Week One

The times we live in ...

This morning, I am already fighting outside induced boredom (so much nicer when I impose it on myself) and made some banana bread. Comfort food - FTW.

Menu Plan Monday: Whole Foods is a Zoo

February 24, 2020
This week I decided to be brave and go to Whole Foods myself instead of having someone else do it. On a Sunday. I thought I had self-control and all that.

The fact that 90% of the people in Whole Foods were shopping for other people made it a lot easier, a person couldn't even walk through the aisles! I had to keep parking my cart and maneuvering down aisles trying to find the things on my list. Bonus, I wasn't familiar with the layout, so it was most definitely not an efficient trip.

Menu Plan Monday: A Return to Clean Eating

It’s January, and you know what that means. Whole 30. I won’t bore you. My attitude towards it hasn’t changed, though, to be perfectly honest, I think I have deviated away enough from clean eating that I am feeling the difference now.
