Meal Planning for Dummies

This AM we’re prepping for vacation and I’m trying to cram some studying in (my Operations Management final is tomorrow night, HALLELUJAH) as I listen to Indigo Girls Pandora (I miss those chicks) and chug lemon water.  I’m trying to detox from a DISGUSTING breakfast this AM at a local diner.  I ordered a combo platter, which included pancakes, eggs, bacon, and hash browns.

BLECH.  Totally not worth the calories as the pancakes were the absolute worst – could not be rescued by gobs of syrup – and the scrambled eggs were runny and slathered in butter.  I don’t like my eggs buttery.  Even the hash browns – one of my favorite guilty pleasures – were nothing to write home about.  I didn’t finish anything; but now I’m dealing with heartburn, queasiness, and deep regret.

Epic breakfast fail.

So I got down to meal and exercising planning for the week.  Organizing and planning always makes me feel better.  I feel a bit out of ideas when it comes to meals, but when I review the upcoming week, I’m excited to eat good food, get plenty of rest, and work out.  Here’s what I’m thinking.  What are you all up to this week?
