Planner Girls Collective: Meal Planning

It’s been a little while since I have taken part in the Planner Girls Collective post, purely due to illness mostly. 

This week we are looking at meal planning. Since I am back at Slimming World, meal prep is massively Important for me to due. 

I get paid on Tuesday’s so for me meal planning is always something I do every Monday. First of all I go through my recipe books and websites looking for meals that I quite fancy. Lately I’m trying to add one new dish a week to my range to stop myself getting bored. 

I think write down the ingredients I need. I plan for every day up to the following Tuesday. I then go through lunch ideas and do the same, adding a few things for my OH and children that are bits I can’t eat. 

Please excuse my writing lol.

I then go through all the snacks I want in. I write each evening meal in my and have a list of everything in my edc travelers notebook.

Do you meal pls? If so how do you do It? 

Please don’t forget to pop along to all the other girls taking part.

Confessions Of A Plannerholic: My Favourite Recipe

This week’s Confession’s post is a little different from one we have done previously. We will all be sharing our favourite recipes.

For me this was a really easy pick. We have been having the same meal every Friday for what feels like forever as it’s our ultimate go-to favourite.

My recipe today will be Pasta Bolognese…


500g 5% fat mince

1 Tin of chopped tomatoes

Half a tub of tomato passata

Half a green pepper

Half a red pepper

1 carrot chopped into fine batons

1 red onion

Worcestershire Sauce



1 Oxo cube

1 Bag of Pasta


Brown the mince with the onion in a little oil or fry light. On a medium heat

Once the mince is browned add the peppers and carrots.

Leave for 5 minutes to soften a little then add the tinned tomatoes and passata.

Stir together and add the garlic (as much as you wish), few sprinkles of oregano, the crumbled Oxo cube and a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce.

Once all in the pan mix together and leave to simmer on a low heat for 30-40 minutes stirring occasionally.

After 30-40 mins put on the pasta and pop a garlic bread in the oven.

Once the pasta and bread are ready mix the pasta and sauce together and serve onto plates or in bowls, add the garlic bread as required.

And voila…Pasta Bolognese TSG style!

Don’t forget to visit the other ladies in the collaberation!
