Meal Plan Monday: 3/6/16

Good evening lovelies.

Hope you had a spectacular weekend! I was in Madison with my college friends for a little girls’ weekend extravaganza. We had a blast, as always. A little winery action, a little townie bar, some more townie bars, a little dancing to Justin Bieber, and a lot of belly laughing in between!

Even a group of 21-year-olds complimented us with a “you are our role models”. Yea, we’re cool like that. :)

Well it’s back to reality for now. Sundays are for lounging and spending time with loved ones. And I suppose for shopping and meal prepping for the week too! Sometimes you just gotta get stuff done – you know?!

Saturday we are leaving for Seattle for 10 days for a little 30th day birthday celebration for me. The big 3-0! I must say I actually don’t mind getting older. If you ask me, life gets better with age. So bring on the next decade!

Back to the meal prep. Here’s what our meal plan for the week:

Monday

Breakfast: eggs with roasted sweet potatoes

Lunch: Caesar salad with grilled chicken
