Hey everyone? How are you all doing? How bloody long was January?!!!!! Anyway I hope you are as good as can be.
My last blog with a four week meal plan was such a huge hit that you wanted another one. So here is my next four week meal plan.
I haven’t included breakfast because they are all generally the same. Just to give you an idea of what I have I usually have poached eggs on toast or porridge. I also like to have pancakes (there’s a healthy fluffy American pancake recipe on bbc good food website), crumpets, eggs benedict (Becs Bites on instagram has a fab healthy recipe), raspberry and white chocolate oat muffins, maybe an occasional McDonalds fakeaway.
Lunches, well to be honest that’s my downfall. I really struggle with inspiration for lunches. I’ve been having sandwiches lately because it’s quick and easy and with homeschooling and managing my disability I will take anything that’s easy at the moment. I’ve also recently discovered Linda McCartney’s vegetarian sausage rolls. They are so so tasty. Basically at lunch time I wing it!!!!
So this month I am providing you with 4 weeks of tea time, yes I said it, tea time meals.
