Let’s Get Healthy {Menu Monday}


Happy New Year! I know a lot of people are working hard to get back to healthy eating after the holidays, and I’m certainly in that category. Although I haven’t talked about it on the blog, I’ve been steadily working on healthy eating and weight loss since September. I’ll talk more about that on Wednesday when I share my 2017 goals, but for now I’ll just share with you what we’re eating this week.

I received my first ever meal delivery service on Friday! My friend offered me a free trial from Blue Apron, so I thought, “why not?” It arrived on Friday and it was really fun to unpack all the fresh ingredients! Paul is such a picky eater that it was impossible to think they’d send us three full meals that he would enjoy. I’m taking ingredients from the three meals to make two suppers and I think that will work well. Once we’ve eaten those meals I’ll share our experience on my YouTube channel.

What are you looking forward to eating this week? Are you still working through Christmas leftovers?

  1. I’ve also been trying to eat healthier, so welcome to the club. 🙂 Can’t wait to hear how your Blue Apron trial goes. It’s an interesting experience for sure! There are still plenty of cookies, candies and a tasty Swiss Colony box from my aunt and uncle that we’re still eating our way through. Going to have to add extra exercise to my 2017 resolutions, as well! 😉


  2. Looks good, Whitney! We have been cleaning up our diet around here, too. Holiday food is great, but you really start to feel it. ;). Have a great week!


  3. Loving all of your salads and I’m excited to hear more about your healthy eating and Blue Apron service. I’ve heard good things about it so it’ll be fun to hear your perspective.


  4. Can’t wait to find out how the Blue Apron meals turn out. I’ve been wanting to try one of those services for a while. This week we’re having Shepherd’s Pie, Cashew Chicken, Chili, and Spiralized Zucchini and marinara sauce with salad.
