Everything was so good and easy to make this past month. I’ll try to post again at the end of March–we’ve already had some new favorites this month! For a more detailed post about how I meal plan, go here. This month (March) I only grocery shopped for the first two weeks (though I still go every week for produce and such) and I really think that is much easier on me, especially since I’m already going weekly anyway. Since I only made a two week list (mostly because I was working on my list 30 minutes before I had to leave to shop!) I used pen and paper, which was easy since it was only two weeks. I also bought 25 pounds each of black beans and pinto beans from Whole Foods and that was so much easier than getting a massive amount from the bulk bin. I think black beans must be the most wonderful food–we go through them like crazy! I’m looking forward to more light, spring-time meals! Anyone have any good recipes? Happy eating! xo

  1. I love, love, love the no-fu love loaf (aka lentil loaf at my house). Fantastic with mashed potatoes, and my carnivore, “I don’t eat rabbit food” 72 year old neighbor even liked it. And it reheats well too.

    How were the sloppy joes? I think I may need to try them.

    • I know, I wish it didn’t take me this long to learn how wonderful the lentil loaf is! The sloppy joes were great! I’m not sure if they’re necessarily any more spectacular than others I have tried, but they taste great and are so much easier to make since you dump everything in the crockpot and leave it for a few hours. I hope you like them if you try it!

      • I think I will give them a shot in the next few days. I already have everything for the recipe. I’ll let you know what I think. Thanks for posting this, I have a couple of new recipes to try now!
