Just a quick weight loss update. I followed the WW Purple Plan again, and this week, I gained .5 pounds. I’m a little disappointed by that, but knowing I had such a large loss last week, I’m not discouraged. I’m just going to keep on keeping on. Hopefully next week I’ll have a good loss.
On a different note, when things started getting crazy with the pandemic in mid-March, I had a freezer cooking session. I’ve been slowly using those meals, but I want to keep a number of meals in the freezer in case we do get the virus and need easy food. (Plus, having the meals in the freezer is also nice for nights when I’m tired of cooking.) So, I decided to have a little freezer cooking session sometime in the next 7 to 10 days, probably after I go grocery shopping. I’ll share with you when I do.
Last note, while cleaning my bookcase in our bedroom (one of my micro goals for the week), I found a cookbook I had reviewed previously, Southern Living Big Book of Slow Cooking. Several of our recipes this week come from that cookbook.
Here’s our menu plan and meal prep for June 1 2020:
I’m sad that it seems like Bookworm has an oatmeal intolerance (he already has a nut intolerance and doesn’t handle protein powder very well). I used oatmeal bakes to help fill up my teen who is a bottomless pit, and now that option is gone. So, I had to be creative with my meal prep to find things I can make for him.
Here’s what I meal prepped this week:
