Hello and happy Friday!
We’ve made it through the week and are now onto the glorious weekend 😎
Per usual (and very intentionally) we don’t have much going on for weekend plans. We have a BBQ at our neighbors house and I’m taking an herbal tincture making class near me that I am VERY excited about.
But that’s it 🙏
In this week’s Life of a T1D Blogger post I wanted to share what a week of our meals looked like.
Meal planning has helped me on SO many levels.
It helps me:
- make good food choices
- eat dinner at a reasonable hour
- eat seasonally
- waste less
- and it takes out that last-minute/end-of-the-day panic of “what am i going to make for dinner tonight?!”
I also follow Sarah Therese Co on YouTube and LOVE her latest video, it has given me some really good meal ideas!
1 Week of Meals
Monday – Bruschetta Chicken
I wish I grabbed a picture of the whole meal (with sides and sauce and all), but I only have this pic of the packed up leftovers.

Tuesday – Pizza, Chicken Salad, Grapes
This was a totally random, clean out the fridge, kind of meal. I like to put my chicken salad over lettuce, crunch tortilla chips on top, and drizzle EVOO & ACV on top!
Wednesday – Crazy Salads with PB&J protein Smoothies
This was another clean out the fridge kind of meal. Crazy Salads are what we call salads that just have a random assortment of ingredients on top.
This salad included:
- Hardboiled Egg
- Chicken Breast
- Red and Green Onion
- Red Pepper Hummus
Since they didn’t have many carbs, we paired them with PB & J protein smoothies.
Thursday – Egg Roll in a Bowl
This meal is a staple in our house. We make it just about every week.

Friday – Chicken & Steak Kabobs with Green Goddess Salads & Bone Broth Rice
Kabobs are one of those meals that feel so time consuming to make in my mind, but are actually so simple and fast. I really wish I incorporated them more often because this dinner was SO good!
Saturday – Leftovers
Sunday – (this pic is so ugly – but it tasted SO good!) Honey Mustard Chicken
This picture looks like a 2, but I swear, it tasted like a 9! Honey mustard chicken with garlic smashed potatoes and broccoli. and a side of watermelon
