Zero Waste Meal Prep: Week Seven

Zero Waste Meal Prep: Week Seven

Meal Plan

Last Updated on April 7, 2020

I don’t enjoy failing. I’m not sure I know many people who do? But, sometimes life is about trial and error. Failing isn’t a failure if you learn something from it. I’m really hoping that my meal planning endeavors are a success.

I’ve been struggling recently. You can read more about it on this post.

We’ve decided that I’ll make sandwiches for him every day for school, and we’ll eat dinner together Wednesday – Sunday. I need to plan to make easy dinners for myself Monday & Tuesday. 

inventory:

We’re stocked on dry goods, lemons, apples, oranges, and a couple of carrot sticks. I have some banana muffins and bagels in the freezer. In other words, we’re running pretty low on food. 

I plan on throwing the oranges into a batch of pineapple, mango smoothies. 

budget:

I’m going to try and keep it at $50 this week. We’re running really low on food, so it will definitely be a challenge. 

shop:

PRODUCE

  • Mushrooms – $1.50
  • Brussel Sprouts – $1.50
  • Zucchini – $1
  • Broccoli – $1
  • Tomatoes – $1
  • Corn – $2
  • Bananas – $1.50
  • Radicchio – $1
  • Cilantro – $1
  • Romaine – $1

DAIRY 

  • Organic Milk – $6.00
  • Farm Fresh Eggs – $5

BUTCHER

  • Turkey – $8

PROCESSED

  • Tortilla Chips – $3.50

TOTAL: $41

I am pretty positive that I will have to pick up one or two items later in the week. But, since we’re resetting our schedule, I would rather buy too little food, than too much and have it go bad. 

plan:

BREAKFAST 

  • JN – Banana Muffins
  • KK – Bagels and Banana Muffins

LUNCH 

  • JN – Turkey Sandwiches, Carrot Sticks, Pretzels, Cookies
  • KK – Leftovers, Salads, PB&J

DINNER

My Meals:

  •  Balsamic Radicchio and Brussel Sprout Bake 
  • Zucchini, Tomato Skillet with a Fried Egg

Our Meals: 

  • Spinach and Mushroom Lasagna
  • Veggie/Reg Burgers and potato wedges
  • Pizza
  • Nachos

prep:

I am not prepping much this week. The muffins and cookies have been made. I’m really excited to see how this week works out! Hopefully, it will go really well, and I’ll have good news to report.

I plan on making applesauce, and maybe some overnight oats.
