Meal Plan 3/25/2019

Hi all! After a nice discussion with Ben (aka, my favorite person to bounce ideas off of and strategize with), I decided it would be more fun for me and hopefully you if I post my meal plans and recipes after I actually make them.  Life keeps changing, and I find the need to make […]

Meal Plan 3/11/19

Last week at my job means that while work isn’t particularly stressful (I’ve already handed off most of my work, and my co-workers are all super supportive of my transition), I have a lot to do to prepare for a new job.  I was offered a job at a great firm, but am still in […]

Meal Plan 3/4/2019

For Lent this year I’ve decided to commit to a good habit for 40 days instead of restricting something bad.  I’m all about positivity, and I think focusing on doing good for myself will give me a better outlook than disallowing something “bad”.  I’m not a huge fan of “good” and “bad” in general, I […]

Meal Plan 2/4/2019

Can I be real for a minute? Some weeks, like when I’m traveling half the week and have an insane amount of billable work (aka, this week), my meal plan is more of a guide. I don’t really use recipes, I just pick a few veggies and a protein for each meal and throw them […]

Meal Plan 1/28/2019

Brrr! Winter finally hit Chicago, in full force. We’ve had 2 snowstorms this past weekend and the high on Wednesday is -3. Offices are closing, we got boots for Gus (who loves the snow), and all I want are some hearty and warm meals to get me through this week. Luckily, I was able to […]

Meal Plan 1/21/2019

It’s my birthday week! January 21st is my birthday, which is also MLK Day this year – meaning I get my birthday off without using vacation time! You know you’re truly turning into an adult when the reason you’re excited to have your birthday off is so you can go to the gym, meal prep, […]

Meal Plan 1/14/2019

We’re both still getting over being sick, so I really focused on having easy and healthy meals this week – emphasis on the “easy”. I absolutely love cooking, usually, but it’s important to know what’s feasible for your life. For instance, I’m very aware that when I don’t feel well, if a meal seems too […]

Meal Plan 1/7/2019 to 1/13/2019

This week is one of my only full work weeks this year until March. Between birthdays, holidays, and upcoming trips, I have a lot of days off or where I’m working from home. I’m excited for all of our plans, but I’m also grateful that this week is at least relatively normal so that I […]

Meal Plan 12/31/2018 to 1/6/2019

Each week, usually during a lunch break or while I binge watch Chopped, I create my meal plan for the following week. For me, this is fun, because I love reading recipes and creating my own. But, I know not everyone shares my weird love of recipe creation, so I thought I’d share my meal […]
