Happy end of Tuesday!  I hope you all had a wondrous day.  Mine started out hot and sweaty with a workout in my  home made gym!  Here was my workout…

The whole workout took me just over an hour.  When I was done I was sweaty and ready to dig into a delicious protein filled breakfast…

1 egg, 1 egg white scrambled with mushrooms and onions and hot sauce.  All served with a side of grapes.  My meal was enjoyed out on my back patio, which is quickly becoming my favorite place to enjoy breakfast while looking at my new back yard.

I have really been trying to cook healthy dinners that both the husband and myself like.  He is a pretty picky eater so it has been quite a challenge.  My new goal is to cook an actual dinner (find a recipe, shop for specific ingredients, etc.) twice a week.  If it is a dinner the husband likes he will be able to take for lunch the next day as well.  I will get him to eat healthier and save money!  WOOHOO!  Another goal I have is to spend $150 a week or less on ALL food.  That means groceries, dinners out, and I am even including lunches in that number.  I am confident that by planning ahead and shopping more efficiently I will be able to achieve this goal 🙂

Do any of you have money-for-food budgets?  How do you stick to them??

Dinner was a meal that is quick, easy, delicious, and healthy (4 of my all time favorite words!).

I mix broccoli, walnuts, some parmesan cheese, and about 2 Tbsp olive oil in a casserole dish and roast everything for about 30 minutes.  The broccoli comes out nice and crispy, the walnuts warm, and the cheese melted.  Serve over pasta or brown rice and you have quite a meal 🙂

Delicious, and best of all, MEAT FREE!
