I just finished my grocery hall from Save a lot and spent a total of $117.87. I still need to go to walmart to purchase 5 bell peppers, a can of chili, hot dog buns, biscuits and a whole chicken. I estimate I will probably spend about $20 there. You can check out my Youtube Channel to see the video.
I wanted to go into a little more detail about what we plan to eat for this week. Just so you know, this is NOT going to be healthy meals. I am too pregnant and tired to put the effort into healthy meals, so for the next 7 weeks I am going to give into my cravings. No regrets. I will however be following the 21 day fix meal plan again after baby is born. I lost 30 pounds in three months with that program and I am excited to continue it in a few weeks.
I will also note that there are some items we still have left over from last week such as bread, oranges, half a watermelon, strawberries, bananas, whey protein and a case of bottled water.
This week I actually purchased 11 dinners instead of 7 because I will be freezing two meals to add to my stash of postpartum freezer meals. My goal is to have at least 2 weeks of dinner frozen and ready to go when I go into labor.
Here is the meal plan for this week:
Breakfast: pancakes or oatmeal (leftover from last week), cereal, and my husband’s birthday breakfast of eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy.
Snacks: crackers, protein shake, smoothies, watermelon, oranges (a few servings of each are leftover from last week)
Lunch: Choice of PB & J with bananas or Chicken Salad with a cold pasta salad. The peanut butter, jelly, and pasta are all leftover from the following week.
Monday – Chicken fajitas ( I will double and freeze for after labor)
Tuesday – Spaghetti with meatballs (I will double and freeze meatballs to use next week)
Wednesday – Ham, collard greens and macaroni and cheese
Thursday – Beef and Bean Stew (I will double and freeze for after labor)
Friday – Whole baked chicken, corn, mashed potatoes with country gravy
Saturday – Chili and cheese brots
Sunday – Breakfast for dinner! Biscuits and gravy with eggs and bacon
Monday – Pork Steaks with sweet potatoes and green beans
Tuesday – Spaghetti and meatballs (I will use the frozen meatballs from Tuesday)
Dessert: No bake cheesecake with cherry topping. I will be making two.
I plan to post a video for the recipe to my no bake cheesecake, fajitas, meatballs and beef stew so be on the lookout for that in the near future!
