This Week’s Menu Planning 4/25-5/1

On April 20th, we started our 2nd round of The 21 Day Sugar Detox.  It’s a lot easier this time now that I have kept up with the original routine of prepping foods for the week, and since we generally eat VERY low sugar Paleo, it’s been a breeze and I haven’t missed much.  

Last night though, after Grey’s Anatomy… I could have used an adult beverage. Darn you, Patrick Dempsey, for being a diva in real life!!! All in favor of starting a petition for Robert Downey Jr as Meredith’s new love interest, say aye!

Today, I decided to pick up from where I left off in the whole Grey’s watching (back when Mr. Clark was shooting up the hospital.. yeah i know that was forever ago…) but our netflix/internet is buffering every five minutes and I’m feeling super insane first world problems. COME ON INTERNET! BUFFER! lol

Anywhoo, I scoured the weekly ads for the best deals and planned this next weeks menu around that! And as always, I make enough for 3 servings so John can take some to work the next day for lunch.
