Meal Planning | Grocery List

Wednesday, March 4, 2015


This post is SUPER late! Things have been a little hectic around here lately & we are knee deep in potty training. There was a couple of graphics & recipes that I needed to put together for this post, so that is what delayed me so much. This is actually not our meal plan for this week, it is last week's, so if you see me posting on IG (mrainey_fit) & it doesn't match up to this meal plan that's why. I will get caught up soon! 


I know I say all the time how much I just love Trader Joe's, I seriously don't think I have ever been more passionate about a grocery store in my entire life. Well, they have officially pushed me over the top with my love for them. Kirby became an official crew member! We were walking through the store and one of the crew members heard me say Kirby's name. He looked over at us and was so excited that he & Kirby shared the same name that he took his name tag right off and handed it over to her. She definitely thought that was the coolest thing ever, and loved all of the attention she got from the other employees as they all noticed her name tag during the rest of our shopping trip. I still can't decide who was more excited Kirby or myself! 


I have been wanting to make this fun little graphic of a few of our favorite bento style lunches, they are all kid friendly & I love them too! Perfect for school lunches as well, and without all of the chemicals and preservatives in the store bought pre-packaged lunches.  


I am going to start adding to my recipe page that way I can link you over there instead of doing the little short descriptions here at the bottom, but for this week the only recipe I have up is the homemade oatmeal bars. Which are so super easy & delicious and they lasted us the whole week. You can find them here

Homemade chicken nuggets with baked sweet potato fries and roasted broccoli 
-Sliced the chicken into bite sized pieces 
-Rolled them in olive oil and then into Trader Joe's organic plain bread crumbs (I season them with Parmesan cheese, garlic, sea salt and pepper)
-Baked at 425 for about 20 or so minutes (until both sides are golden brown)
-Sweet potato fries; sliced, basted with olive oil, sea salt and pepper and baked the same as chicken nuggets 
-Roasted Broccoli is basted with olive oil, sea salt, pepper and Parmesan & tossed in the oven with everything else, but just for 12 minutes

Teriyaki chicken over rice with green beans 
-I put chicken in the crock pot with water & cooked it throughout the day

-Boiled some brown rice & served it over the rice with boiled fresh green beans
