Food - Too little variety? Too much variety?

Saturday, June 09, 2012

My husband could eat the same meals everyday for a year. That makes me insane! I like variety. But I've been known to buy a bunch of groceries and a lot of it go bad before I eat it all because I just can't get to it all in time.

Since he is out for the summer (he's a teacher), we have been eating lunch together. He is usually still asleep when I eat breakfast, but he needs something when he gets up. I have been planning two lunches and two breakfasts for the week. It works out perfectly! Enough variety that I don't get bored and he likes it too. Best part? All the food gets used up and not wasted!

Week 1 Breakfasts
boiled eggs, canadian bacon, fruit
yogurt, granola, strawberry bowl

Week 1 Lunches
hummus, veggie and turkey wrap with fruit
grilled chicken salad

Week 2 Breakfasts
veggie frittata, toast, fruit
cottage cheese and tomatoes

Week 2 Lunches
pita pizza, fruit
chicken/black bean burritos

Here is the recipe for the frittata. The asparagus at the store looked horrible so I substituted chopped fresh broccoli. The one recipe was enough for us for all week.

    I waste less when I plan meals, too, although usually when things start to look like they're heading south, I just toss 'em in a smoothie, lol.
