We also ate very well during the holidays. I was able to whip up healthful meals at a moment's notice as I'm becoming a skilled cook and tend to have a well stocked pantry. I guess all this practice cooking-from-scratch for the last 2 years is starting to pay off :)
One of my goals for the New Year is to become better organinzed. To start, I spent Sunday planning our meals for the month of January. Although it took me most of the day, it was worth every minute.
Below is our January Meal Plan. I couldn't find any meal plan templates that I liked online, so I created my own in Microsoft Word. I didn't include many breakfast options as we tend to eat oatmeal in the mornings or plain yogurt with homemade granola. For lunch, we eat leftovers or sandwhiches.
