Meal Plan: Week One

As the title of my blog suggests, I am constantly on the move!  I love traveling, running and big adventures which means I am often on the go.  The only way I can be on the go as often as I am, is that I am super organized about the details  in my life…some might even say I have OCD!  A big part of that is regular meal planning and food prep.  I don’t have time on a daily basis to figure out what I’m going to eat, so instead I plan my menus a week at a time.

Since not everyone has time for menu planning, I thought I might be able to help you out!  Below you will not only find a menu plan for next week, but the ingredient list for all five recipes and some food prep tips!

Each week I set aside time at the beginning of the week to do food prep.  Then when it comes time to cook dinner each night, I already have some of the work done!  This week you could do the following ahead of time…

* Put the crockpot meal in a ziploc bag

* Cook and crumble Italian sausage

* Prep any vegetables you are going to use in the Calzones or Pizza Enchiladas (slice mushrooms, dice peppers, etc)

I hope this menu plan inspires you to take some time this weekend to go grocery shopping and prep for dinners next week!
