Weekly Wrap Up

Happy Sunday, friends! I hope you all had a great week and are kickin' up your feet on this Sunday evening! 

One of the things I am proud of this week is continuing to batch cook my meals so I am prepped and ready for the work week. Tyler and I started doing this at the start of the year and it has been SO nice! I use meal plans from here  and Tyler cooks what sounds good to him for the week. Usually he makes all the same lunch and the same dinner for himself, and then I do the same. On Sundays I will make two large meals, making 4 servings of each. Meaning one night I usually cook during the week and have those leftovers for lunch one day, making 5 lunches and 5 dinners. Breakfast is then either oatmeal or a green smoothie. If I am short on time, I make Over Night Oats (ONO) which is the oats and water in a mason jar overnight. I add in my fixings too (chia seeds, blueberries, apple sauce, whatever) and then maybe some peanut butter in the morning. I eat it cold if needed or heat it up at work if I can and have time. This has made my life easier; it takes no more than 1-2 hours on the weekend to do this; and then all it takes is a microwave the rest of the week. It makes it smoother to eat from home and know I am making good choices. PLUS it's cheap! I actually eat the food I buy and only buy the food I plan to eat. It's genius! I definitely recommend it. This week one of my meal's was made in the slow cooker; even easier!
One of my meals this week! Doesn't it look awesome?!? (not my photo, taken from meal plans, see link above)

Another thing I am very excited about is... we planted seeds! Tyler made planted the seeds in some starts he made from egg cartons, put them in a storage container and put grow lights over them in the closet, creating a "greenhouse". It's amazing! Speaking of greenhouses, he built one today too! Once the plants are growing, we'll transfer them to the greenhouse, letting them get bigger, before we plant them in May. Spring is coming guys!!! 

 Our new greenhouse- isn't Tyler such a badass?
