Meal Planning Monday (23rd April 2012)

Hello all! Happy St George's Day to the English amongst us.

It's Monday and today the children have finally gone back to school which means I can get back into my routine - I don't know about you, but I positively thrive on routine and miss it when everything gets turned upside down by school holidays, although I do love having the children at home.

Yesterday, you may have seen my blog post, I started the C25K programme. Yes, I have found my willpower to get fit and healthy! This means I am also going to try to eat healthily and at the moment, I am really looking forward to it. I've decided not to diet but just be sensible - no crisps and rubbish, and no mid-week alcohol. Gulp.  I'm not calorie-counting but just trying to pick healthier dinner and serve up more sensible portions - certainly with regard to carbs.

So aside from Ryvita and fat-free yoghurts, this week we will be eating as follows;

Halloumi Salad with Houmous Dressing & Pitta Crisps
Chorizo, Potato & Parsley Tortilla with salad
Crispy Chilli Beef & Broccoli with rice
Spaghetti Con Gamberetti E Rucola
Cheesy Chorizo Wedges with lettuce, tomato, spring onions

Okay, so the last one isn't very healthy but Mr M and I have decided Friday Night Food must remain. We need treats!

If you've got any healthy & extremely tasty meal ideas, please let me know!

Right, the Linky is below for those that want to link-up. Remember the #mealplanningmonday tag on Twitter and I'll try to RT. I've been very slack over the past few weeks, both with commenting and RTing but now my routine is back, I'll be better, I promise!

  2. Wow - that is an impressive meal plan. I love everything on it (especially the Friday treat!)

  5. I love the sounds of the tortilla. I have just blogged my 3rd MMM post.

  12. In that case, this kind of question should not be taken from any show
    telecasted in specific country. *Rounds table format.
    They feature almost nightly drink specials and some form of entertainment every night of the week--DJ's, live music, trivia, you name it.

  13. Also, we need to determine the rounds of the
    quiz according to it. Popular prizes include sports tickets, cash and vouchers for
    drinks, food - and dollars off of tabs. The decline of the East
    side blues scene was disheartening, but, it also gave rise to
    the need for a fresh start, which came in the form of the next blues-only venue,
    Antone's, founded by the late Clifford Antone, during the summer of 1975.
