Catch-Up Meal Plan

This past week, we had so many leftover that we hardly got a chance to make any new meals. Therefor we are naming this week’s meal plan a catch-up meal plan. We’ll be taking some of the recipes from last week and integrating them into this week’s plan. And other meals will simply be dropped or replaced, as long as no food goes to waste.

Let’s talk about food waste…

If there’s one flaw that I hate to admit I have, it’s wasting food. I feel so fortunate to enjoy meals alongside Max, who is always glad to finish my plate if I’m not able to. But whenever he isn’t there, I feel very guilty. Food is such a precious ressource, I hate the idea of wasting it. I find a bit of comfort knowing that we have our own compost for the food we can’t/don’t eat while we’re at home. However the best solution is to not have any waste in the first place, which is why we’ll be playing catch-up for this week’s meal plan.
