Confession is Good for the Soul
You may remember from my posts about meal planning here and here, that though I am not starting a diet this year, I do want to try healthier meals, and am hoping that by trying some new recipes, eating well will be more fun and not the boring same-old same-old. I intended to try at least one new recipe a week and tell you guys how it went.
I picked one out to try from the Healthy Meal Planning Bundle - Simple Vegetables and Rice Pilaf. But I forgot to look up the ingredients and when we got to the store, my son and I just shrugged. We ate rice, peas and parmesan cheese, instead.
It was good, though!
I think for next week's healthy eating, meal-planning post, I'm going to choose something for breakfast - or breakfast for dinner! ;)
What & How I Saved Money
This week, through a combination of meal planning and choosing what's on sale, I saved $10 on my grocery bill. I'm really pleased and hoping to add in coupons and save even more.
I've been reading that ebook from the Healthy Meal Planning Bundle, Dinner for a Dollar, and am really motivated to keep making changes. This week, I didn't get our meals down to a dollar per person, but they will be about $1.50 for each of us. No bad, right?
I did hit some resistance while I was in the store. I had some things on the list that I wanted to get on sale, but not only were some not on sale, when they were, it was not a brand I was willing to choose. So I switched plans right there in the store.
Hoping it gets easier and better as I go!
See you tomorrow!
