Meal Planning

Assalaam Alakium lovelies!

Jummah Mubarak! How's the morning/afternoon been so far? Not much has been going on over here, the Writer is at work and I'm chillin at home today. I have a few things I need to get done though. Cleaning and meal planning are the two biggies. 

We need to take a much needed grocery run over here. We've been eating out way too much. My pizza fix has definitely been fixed.

Having pizza two times in one week = feeling horrible the rest of the week. It'll be awhile before we order pizza again. Which brings me to meal planning. 

Not having any groceries in the house has been horrible, so my goal for the day is to make a meal plan. For those of you who don't know what meal planning is, it's where you write down what you are going to eat for a week or so. I've done this for awhile but would just write down meal ideas. This time I'm planning for each day. Planning = Success

Not only does meal planning keep you away from spending outrageous amounts of money on groceries ($200 a week! No way) but it can also make a diet or lifestyle change easier. The Writer and I really want to start living healthier and one thing we plan on incorporating in our life's is juicing. We have a Jack La Lanne Power Juicer and need to start using it on a regular basis. 

Do any of you meal plan or juice? If so, let me know what meals or recipes you make often. I'll post a recap of our meals as soon as I get all of it together. 

"Eat of the good things we have provided for your sustenance, but commit not excess therein." (Qur'an 20:81)

Have a great day!
