I know I save money when I plan my menus out in advance, and after this post I have been trying extra hard to be organized and plan ahead! I did my shopping today and spent about $60 less than my average bill before I was being super careful and it felt like I purchased more groceries. Probably because I bought a LOT of fresh vegetables.
I have also been struggling to lose this last bit of belly fat from my 9lb 6oz baby boy. I have been blessed with a high metabolism, but apparently having a giant baby and being in my 30s has caused a bit of a problem. So I am wanting to start eating a bit healthier and see if that does the trick. My sister-in-law gave me a cookbook before I got married, "Pillsbury Fast and Healthy Cookbook". I've used it a couple times over the years, but not much. I pulled it out the other day and found a lot of yummy-looking meals that I'm going to try. Here they are in no particular order:
Rio Grande Beef Salad
Easy Vegetable Minestrone
Light & Lemony Chicken (I can't find this one online, I'll post the recipe separately)
Chicken and Snow Pea Pasta
Presto Chicken Primavera Potatoes (we've had these before...yum!)
Glazed Chicken over Couscous Pilaf
Turkey Meatballs in Light Tomato Sauce
Easy Steak Sandwiches
Sweet 'n' Spicy Meat and Potato Loaves (we've had these before...yum!)
Hooray! I'm excited to try these out! Let me know if you try any of them!
