Menu Plan No.1

Firstly I can't believe its already September.
I always feel a sense of renewal by the time this month comes around, more so than January. I suspect its because of my years working in schools that my year feels like it runs Sep-Sep. 

I've talked about menu planning a lot with you, but realised I'd never actually shared mine. 
I meant to post this yesterday, but interview prep ran away with me. I know, I've got an interview!
Its for a job I've always wanted too, #nervousalready. 
Pray for me on Wednesday please!!

Here it is my menu plan for this week, starting yesterday.
I am planning on sharing some of the recipes with you, but most are first timers for me, so it all depends on how good they turn out!
If you like the sound of a recipe though, leave me a comment and I'll share it, or e-mail it to you.

The numbers in brackets are the calories per serving. I've put on some weight recently, which is not the way its supposed to go. So in the spirit of September renewal I'm sticking to my low calorie guns.

Notice I ran out of ideas for breakfasts? If you have any that would be great!

Here's to September being an amazing month.

A lovely varied menu, I'm a firm believer in menu planners - it helps me stay on track with my own weight loss.
