Saturday Planning – 3/5 to 3/11

Planning my menus on Saturday before my grocery shopping trip is my go-to method for keeping organized and saving money by only buying what I need.

With that, here is my meal plan for 3/5/2011 to 3/11/2011, in no particular order. It’s pretty boring, since there is a lot of leftovers and I have no help in the brainstorming.

  • Vegetable Korma from (never home)maker
  • Spaghetti with zucchini
  • Leftover Potato, Spinach, & Chickpea Curry
  • Bean Burgers with couscous, broccoli
  • Leftover Mussaman Curry

Exercise Planning

Also, due to the races I’m participating in this year that I am training for, I thought it would be a good idea to make an exercise calendar. Since I need to train for biking and running races, I want to make sure that I don’t do too much of one of the other and am ill-prepared.

Each week will be basically the same in March, with the exception of any other appointments I have.

  • Sunday: Six Week Six Pack
  • Monday: Gym (morning), Bike (outside or trainer)
  • Tuesday: Six Week Six Pack, Running
  • Wednesday: Bike (trainer), Gym
  • Thursday: Six Week Six Pack, Running
  • Friday: Six Week Six Pack, Bike (outside or trainer)
  • Saturday: Six Week Six Pack, Running

Now all I need is a heavy dose of motivation to wake up and work out…

Planning my menus on Saturday before my grocery shopping trip is my go-to method for keeping organized and saving money by only buying what I need.

With that, here is my meal plan for 2/6/2011 to 2/12/2011, in no particular order.

  • Penne Pasta with Greens
  • Vegetable Soup (recipe forthcoming!)
  • Potato Pancakes
  • Yakisoba with veggies (broccoli, carrots, etc)
  • Leftover Lasagna

Today is yet another Saturday filled with running around. We’ve got to go to the food co-op, Whole Foods, and Great Harvest… then out to Novi to Running Fit to pick up my race packet for tomorrow morning. At least I’m not nearly as nervous about running outside now as I was a few days ago. High of 32F tomorrow!

Also, I’m meeting up tonight with my friend and previous university roommate, Bryan, and we’re going to Tuptim Thai for dinner 🙂 We sort of lost track of each other for the past year or so (it sucks being so busy even when you live in the same city!) so I’m excited to get to hang out with him again.

Now I’ve got to make up the grocery list (the meal list is so much more fun!), ride the bike for a while, and finally get this day started 🙂

Planning my menus on Saturday before my grocery shopping trip is my go-to method for keeping organized and saving money by only buying what I need.

With that, here is my meal plan for 1/30/2011 to 2/5/2011, in no particular order.

  • Potato Leek Soup with Rosemary Tomato Scones
  • Stir Fry with Brown Rice
  • Tofu Scramble with Pasta Sauce (last week) and Kale
  • Irish Lamb Stew
  • Leftover Lasagna

I’ve got a TON of running around to do today! Farmer’s market, Food Co-op, Whole Foods, Great Harvest Bakery…..

Oh! And to try to counteract some of the plastic waste that creeps into my life, Tim and I are attempting to make bagels this weekend. This should be interesting.

How do you prepare to be able to still cook good meals on weeknights? I’ve been trying to cook up as much food as possible ahead of time, but anything that has to do with fresh veggies is definitely made the night of.
