It’s been a while since I’ve done a weekly meal plan and you can really tell! The hubby has been nagging me about what’s for tea, I’ve been forgetting to get things out of the freezer to defrost and I’ve been buying food we don’t need and forgetting to buy food we do. But I’m back on it now, I’m going to try & hold off shopping until as late as I can this week so we can try & work our way through the freezer again.

This is the main issue for me if I don’t meal plan, I end up with a freezer full of random food that I’ve forgot about so this week is all about reducing waste & emptying the freezer as much as possible!

I’m also trying out the new LighterLife 5:2 range from Superdrug so two days this week I’m only having LighterLife products, plus I’m also trying to reduce my carbs on all the other days.


So onto this week’s Meal Planning Monday:


I’m still trying to move towards gluten free so this week breakfast this week will either be fruit smoothies, scrambled eggs or yogurt & fruit.


  • Quorn Chicken, broccoli & cauliflower stir fry
  • Jacket potato & salad
  • Quorn Chicken salad
  • LighterLife Meal Replacement Bar
  • LighterLife Meal Replacement Bar
  • Linda McCartney Sausages & scrambled eggs
  • I’m going to have a proper bacon butty for brunch, trimming all the fat & having gluten free bread


  • Lemon & Herb Basa fillets with steamed broccoli & cauliflower
  • Spag bol using Quorn mince to reduce the fat content, cauliflower for me instead of pasta
  • Homemade beef burgers with salad
  • LighterLife Shake
  • LighterLife Shake
  • Chicken Stir Fry with lot’s of veg, no noodles
  • Shepherd’s Pie, mine made with cauliflower mash rather than potatoes

For snacks this week I’ve baked a yummy flapjack for the boys again as they can’t get enough of the stuff and have even baked some gluten free brownies so watch out for that recipe this week.
