Meal Plan – Week of July 17

Every Monday, I’ll be posting our meal plan for the week, complete with snacks and any deals I found. I usually do my grocery shopping on Saturday (market and Earth Fare) and Sunday (Meijer and Aldi). Depending on the budget for the week and what we have in our pantry, sometimes I will meal plan before shopping and sometimes I will meal plan after.

* A note on lunches – I work outside of the home during the week. I usually have either leftovers or something simple like raw cheese with seed crackers or cottage cheese and popcorn, etc. just a bunch of munchies trying to get enough protein and fat to get me through the day. If I know I don’t have much for lunch I try to eat a larger breakfast and take a high fiber fruit with me to help me get through. DH is at home during the day with V. She’s young enough still that she needs to eat several times between meals. She usually eats at meals and then has smaller snacks between each – fruit, crackers, hummus, etc. We don’t really plan lunches because of this.
