Meal Planning Week of 10/16

I have re-introduced my daily meal planning print out at home, in an effort to help make sure what I'm taking in has enough protein and calcium and also it really helps curb me getting lazy and ending up doing something out of the freezer or take out or something "easy". I keep it pretty simple, and it just takes a little prep the night before but I know this is going to be a much more balanced diet for me and the babies and Kent and I will get to start spending a little time together in the evenings in the kitchen getting both of our lunches ready for the next day! I did this throughout my last pregnancy and kept it up afterwards for awhile, and now that I have some of my energy back I'm looking forward to utilizing this great tool hopefully throughout the remainder of this pregnancy as well!

I'm sure things will shift as the week comes up and I get a better sense of how much I actually eat each day and if I need to add/delete things or pay more attention to certain nutrients but I think this is a good start! :)
