  1. What a great plan! I totally envision myself doing this someday. However, for now, I change my mind constantly about what I'm hungry for, so I just keep a list of meals that I have the ingredients to make or I need to make for the blog, etc.

  2. Kristin I have to agree with you. Some times it is just easier to have "no plan" and do it week by week or day by day. But I have found that having some sort of plan allows me to food shop on Mondays easier and also I try to give myself some freedom on the weekends since we may go out, eat at Grandmas or John might cook.

  3. Yummy! The Tomato and Cucumber & Feta Balsamic salad with whole wheat pita sounds great. I think I will "borrow" it from you ;D Good luck with slimming down :D
