One of the best things I do for my health is meal plan. Each Sunday, I sit down and figure out what Seth and I are going to eat for the rest of the week.
I do this for two reasons: 1) So we are not ordering Pizza Hut on Tuesday night once we have ran out of resources in the fridge and 2) So we can stay somewhat slimmer versions of ourselves and fit into our high school skinny jeans. (JUST kidding. That goal was long gone after we both went to college and discovered beer and Mesa Pizza. Chicken Penne, you have stolen my heart!) I want to fit into last year’s skinny jeans. That is the goal.
I meal plan to save myself from coming home and getting hangry at Seth. I get a bad case of the hangries if I don’t eat, and believe me, you do not want to meet hangry Nicky. Seth and my family know her, and she is not a nice girl.
I discovered this Knock Knock (What to Eat) pad from World Market on one of my “Money Mondays.” (Seth calls it this, since I have Mondays off and I like to spend all of our money. Shout out to all my Money Monday friends, who support my financial spending’s, and participate in similar monetary damage to their bank accounts. You know who you are.)
I love the Knock Knock pad, because it is super easy to use. Plus, it has a magnet on the back, so you can put it up on your fridge. For the price of two lattes, you can purchase a Knock Knock pad online here.
I hope the Knock Knock pad helps you organize and plan your meals better. Since we have started using it, we have been eating in more, eating healthier, and saving more mullah (for Money Mondays).
Now, I am going to go shopping.
