First Meal Plan of 2016: Hello New Year!

Here we are - 3 days into 2016. I hope 2016 was a good one for you and your family!

Believe me, I know some years just plain suck. That was 2013 for us -- loss, grief, and sadness hit our family hard in 2013. Despite the royal suckiness of that year it reminded us life is short and fueled us forward toward some important changes. We decided it was time to start making our "big-scary" dreams a reality. In fact, it was the year this blog was born:) Sometimes you need the hard times to give you a little perspective and kick in the pants...

Looking back, 2015 has been one of the best years for our family - we had a huge dream come true with the purchase of our lake home and I left my office job to come back home full-time with the boys (while growing my coaching business!). Both of these decisions have brought so much joy to our family on so many levels.

The hub and I have been together for 22 New Years and it was probably around year 6 that we decided that being home, in our pjs, snuggled on the couch is the best way to ring in the New Year...So, we toasted with the boys around 9pm (Presecco + pomegranates for Mike and I, OJ for the boys) with our rarely used crystal. Cheers!

If 2015 wasn't the best year ever for you and your loved ones - start right now, today - and decide how you are going to make 2016 YOUR year!

Here's the Meal Plan for this week and I've included a little video sneak peek into my meal prep, as well. All these recipes work for my Hammer and Chisel nutrition plan + the kids will happily gobble them up. That's what I call a win-win!

Sunday: Broccoli Mac n Cheese {21 Day Fix Approved!}

Monday: Oven Baked Chicken Fajitas, brown rice, salad

Tuesday: Clean Eating Sausage and Potatoes, broccoli

Wednesday: Broccoli Cheese Soup (this will be a first attempt - but I'm hoping its delicious. Broccoli-cheese soup is my hub's absolute favorite and finding a healthy alternative would be amazing!)

Thursday: Almond-Crusted Chicken Fingers, baked sweet potato, green beans

Friday: Lemon-Dill Baked Salmon, brown rice, asparagus

Saturday: Leftovers!

Here's a quick video I made for you - just a peek at a few things I cooked up using my crockpot, rice cooker and stove. Minimal "hands-on" time - let your kitchen do the work for you!
