The Hubby works hard to provide for our family, and often miss dinner. He also is addicted to food shows and his Facebook wall is full of food ideas. When I meal plan I try to include a few of these ideas on days I am guarantee that he will be home. I also try to make food that tastes good re-heated so that he has something to eat whenever he rolls through the door.
There is a quote that I often use with The Hubby, “The way to your heart is through your stomach.” But it is true with him. A good meal that I have put together for him makes him feel well-loved . There is a big issue when cooking for him. He loves meals that totally go against what I like. The Hubby is a meat, potato man and I am a salad kind of women. How do I pull it off?
I try to have 2-3 meals per rotation that The Hubby completely loves. I also swap out ingredients for my healthier ingredients. 😉 He doesn’t mind as long as it tastes good. One trick I use often is switching out a potato for a sweet potato. Simple little tricks like this help keep me on track with my healthy eating and allow The Hubby to get the meals he loves.
I am really excited to share my first free printable meal plan. This is a two week dinner plan that my family eats. It’s simple and can be adapted to anyone’s budget!
