Weekly Dinner Menu #47

Another crazy week! As much as I love the holidays and hate the gloom and doom a cloudy and snowy January brings, it is nice when the quiet, calmness returns to life, right?

For one, The Bachelor starts this week! YES! I have my wine bar fully stocked for this season. I know it’s shameful, but the love drama totally entertains me. Another perk of January: Serial Season 2!  I am loving it so far.  If you haven’t gotten into the world of podcasts yet, it’s time.  As I’ve mentioned on the blog before, they are great to listen to when cooking, driving or cleaning.  While most of my podcasts involve nutrition or cooking topics, this is where I deviate from my interests because Sara Koenig is really good at what she does, and I’m a sucker for a good mystery.

As always, here are your meals for the week. I truly believe that meal planning is an absolute KEY to living a healthy lifestyle.  One of my favorite quotes is: “If you have good food in your fridge, you will eat good food.” So simple but true.  If you stock cookies, chips, and ice cream as staples, and you come home from a hard day of work starving with no meal plan, of course, what do you think you will eat?  If you have a well laid out plan with healthy, easy dinner options at your disposal, you will eat better. I promise!

Weekly Dinner Menu #47- Weekly links to healthy and easy recipes to make meal planning easier for you and your family.

Tuesday-Taco Tuesday: Bean Taco Salad (hers) + Beef Tacos (his)

Wednesday- Future Blog Recipe, stay tuned!

Thursday- NYE apps: Skinny Taco Dip, Sweet & Sour Meatballs (I used ground turkey), Puppy Chow (SO addicting. I seriously have no self control with this, hence why I only make it once a year)
