What's For Dinner?:This is right.

First off, this is the best resolution ever:

Less TV, more reading. On that. The hour before bed will be dedicated to reading. :) Every week I will attempt to do less/more of something. There are some that I work on all the time like "less hurrying, more enjoying."

So I said I wouldn't meal plan anymore and I'm not going against it whatsoever. I do have to prep the night before though, and I wanted to share recipes I found on here. :)

The standard, egg white oats
Avocado + egg, such a wonderful combo, and I can't pick what recipe to share! Check them all out!

Lunch or dinner
Trader Joe's Thai Green Curry Simmer Sauce over chicken
Bison something?
Eggs because we have lots of them

Protein pancakes for dinner - feeling them for tomorrow
Shrimp spring rolls, which are always on the menu 

Snacks :)
Luna Fiber bars
Luna Chocolate Covered Coconut Bars, my favorite, which will sub for magic bars if those don't happen.
Julian Bakery bread + sunflower butter
If I get around to it: 

Oh yes, back to budgeting. I haven't really gotten a whole lot, which is obviously fantastic.

  • Repaint nails. Still haven't done it!
  • Watch "Deception," "The Biggest Loser," and "Pretty Little Liars."
  • Yoga daily after work or before bed. I did this last week and it was something to do in the afternoons.
What are you making this week?
What are your goals this week?


  1. Yummy menu! My goals this week are 4 runs and 3 strength training workouts. I'm watching BL for the first time this season and I love it!!

  2. I love avocado and egg together! And great quote. Less tv, more reading is one of mine.

    1. Totally failing at it though! Haha.
