Meal Plan 3/30/14

Our cupboards were getting quite empty, so we had an epic family trip to the grocery store. I had no real plan when we went. This happens occasionally; I feel inspired by what is on sale, what the husband and girls request, or just looks good. Here is what is on the meal plan for…

Avocado and Sunny Side Up Eggs on English Muffin

This is a simple and delicious breakfast that took no time to make. I toasted a whole wheat english muffin, spread some avocado (actually, it was a 100 calorie package of Wholly Guacamole, but same idea), and topped it with perfectly cooked sunny side up eggs! You are not going to get this at any…
