If you’ve read my food and fitness goals for 2017 you may already know that one of the things I want to do is to cook freshly prepared nutritious meals more during my maternity leave.
This means having to be a little savvy when it comes to the food shop as we are on a tight budget with only one income currently.
Around 2/3 of our shop is fresh and tinned fruit and vegetables which I’m pretty happy with. Ed buys our meat from the butcher so it’s not included in this list, but generally I am trying to add in at least one vegetarian meal a week, and will happily increase this.
Carly has a packed lunch for nursery twice a week and Cameron only has to take a snack in to school as he still has free school dinners at the moment.
So, what’s on our shopping list this week?
Onions x 2
Chopped tomatoes x2
Flavouring sachet for spaghetti bologense and Chilli con carne
Wholemeal seeded bread
The meals I have planned include:
Salmon and Green Beans
Chilli con Carne
Spicy Turkey Stir Fry
Hard Boiled Egg & Tomato Sandwiches
I need to do a little research and look in some cookbooks for some more ideas of what I can cook as my biggest stumbling block is definitely my imagination with food.
Do you have any nutritious, simple meal ideas I can try?
