It’s taken me forever to get this written down, but here are our meals for the week! Groceries ended up being really low cost this week because….
- I got the chicken for $1 off the family pack that was already only $ 0.79 per lb. Kinda bummed I stocked up last week when this price is insanely cheap. I paid around $3 for 5lbs of chicken! That’s crazy!
- Similarly, there was zucchini and squash priced even lower at $0.79 per pack. Each pack is 20oz, so that price was also great.
- I already had a bit of food (and almond milk) from our Mother’s Day brunch.
Even with splurging on fresh salmon, our food came total in at $75. That also includes feeding my mom who is staying with us and the fact that I’m breastfeeding. I know people say “eating for two” when you’re pregnant, but it doesn’t even come close to what you eat while breastfeeding. Also, I paid more for better apples at Meijer instead of Aldi. While I do love Aldi, sometimes the fruit has noticeably less flavor (has anyone else noticed that or am I crazy?)…Anyways, here’s our meals this week!
Sundried Tomato Chicken Burgers with Roasted Potatoes (fries)
Breakfast: Leftover Cinnamon French Toast Casserole (Something I made up for Mother’s Day)
Lunch: Leftover Chicken Burgers, Vegetables
Dinner: Cracklin Chicken and Roasted Zucchini over leftover iceburg lettuce. I also made a smoky creamy sauce to go with this.
Breakfast: a frittata made with leftover veggies from last week (eggplant, tomatoes, zucchini)
Lunch: Cracklin Chicken Salad
Dinner: Oven Smoked Ribs, Roasted Asparagus, Brown Rice
Lunch: Leftover ribs, asparagus, and rice
Dinner: Whole30 Crockpot pulled pork (served over coleslaw) with sweet potato fries and spicy ranch.
Breakfast: Frittata want to know how to change up your frittata? Click to see my post on “how to always eat frittata without getting bored”
Lunch: Leftover pulled pork and sweet potato fries
Dinner: Salmon with brown rice and roasted squash
Breakfast: Frittata or Cereal if there isn’t enough left. Not healthy cereal. It’s the Aldi version of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I haven’t tried it before so we’ll see!
Lunch: Leftover Salmon, rice, and squash
Dinner: “Egg Roll in a Bowl” using the leftover pulled pork (and chicken if any), veggies, and coleslaw.
Egg Roll in a Bowl is like the Whole30 version of fried rice. You can just add in all of your leftovers, make a sauce, and somehow it all tasted good every single time. Someone quote that from me because it really belongs on the kitchen walls of Whole30er’s everywhere.
