I also took into account what groceries I would need to buy and tried to make substitutions and find meals that have like ingredients. So these are the meals that I have come up with:
-Portobello and Pesto Egg Scramble
-Turkey & Hummus Sandwich
-Pesto Chicken Wrap
-Lentil Soup with Cheese, Fruit, and Crackers
-Salmon Salad Sandwich (I plan to substitute tuna)
-Spicy Roast Beef Wrap
-Spiced Salmon over Brown Rice
-Farfalle with Veggies in Creamy Marinara
-Asian Cod & Snap Peas
-Sausage Ravioli Toss
-Cottage Cheese with Cucumber
-Cottage Cheese, Nuts, and Banana
-Crudités & Hummus
-York peppermint patties
-BBQ potato chips
Sounds pretty good, right? I think I managed to find some of the tastier and simpler meal ideas. I did not delve into the Month 3 meal plan yet so there may be even more treats to add come December and January.
Since I'm sure that rotating 5 different options for each meal time over the course of a month will get boring, I'm sure I'll come up with some extra ideas for meals as well. A simple grilled chicken dish for dinner, or a bagel or English muffin with peanut butter for breakfast will have to suffice for busy days.
My next tackle is to prepare myself for the work out portion of the challenge. This will be equally as difficult for me because I do not exercise very often. We'll see what we have to work with in that area soon!
