Two-Week Menu Plan

Now that we are eating our own, I have to figure out how to keep up our good eating habits.  Part of why the 20-days went so well was that we just followed The Plan.  We knew exactly what all our meals were going to be.  We didn’t have to make any decisions.  I liked that all we had to do was buy groceries and cook.

I sat down with the book and made two 5-day meal plans, including lunch, snack and dinner.  For each plan I made a corresponding grocery list.  Now we have no excuses!  Just like the book, my menu often uses dinner’s leftovers for the next day’s lunch.  A protein needs to be added to every dinner, but that should be easy when it’s usually chicken.  And if we want dessert, it’s either an 1 oz of dark chocolate or fruit with whipped cream.

* Make enough for leftovers
