Grocery list and Meal Planning

So if you’ve been following my twitter, you’ll see that I haven’t been able to get anything done this week. But as I was writing my grocery list and planning what meals I want to cook for next month, a thought popped into my head, “share this with your readers!” I think it’s a great idea and it gives some inspiration and ideas to my readers, aka you lovely people! So why not!

I want to first state that I am NOT any type of health expert and that this list is accumulated from this pin, with a few changes made. Most of the dishes and meals however are my own but I’m still not an expert. I just know what I like and am trying to stay healthy!

I can’t wait to put pictures to my meals and hopefully even share my recipes! What is your monthly grocery or meal list? Do you even have one available? Do you find planning your meals helps you stay healthier?
