The Empowered Cook Meal Plan – Week Starting 29th January 2017

Argh what a week! We’ve caught our first childcare bug – and it has really knocked our little one about. Who knew such a little person could produce so much snot?!

As I’ve been playing Nurse Mama for the last few days, I am a little late in posting our meal plan.

You might wonder why on earth I still have a meal plan when we’re dealing with a sick household – surely that’s enough for this week? Well yes – but also no.

Having a meal plan makes this process easier. It means that I don’t have to think each night – I can simply do dinner. I have been prepping dinner during his nap time too – just like I used to when I was a stay at home Mum. This is so much easier that trying to do dinner during arsenic hour. I can plod along in my own time and enjoy the time alone in the kitchen.

My family's meal plan for this week.

Our meals this week are vegetable heavy. We need the nutrition, and I know these meals are all something that our little one will usually eat. He doesn’t have much of an appetite at the moment – but he will never turn down some mashed potato (clearly, he is my son).

Depending on how we all fare in the next day or so, one of these meals might get swapped out for some homemade chicken soup. This will cure all sickness! But at the moment, we are in the middle of a heatwave – so the idea of hot soup if not very appealing. We will see how we go.

I also know that by Friday night, we will be exhausted. So Eggs on Toast it is – or simply, anything you can find in the fridge. An easy, laid back dinner will be needed.

What’s on your meal plan this week? Let me know in the comments below – as well as any helpful tips for managing a sick toddler! Lol!
