Fit Foodie: Hasn’t been a lot BUT a lot has been good!

I find that the busy schedule has really impacted our menu planning.  It's hard to plan around the life of a growing and active family of six.  Adrian's hours are longer too so trying to keep the motivation up to cook is even getting harder.  I'm trying to find a better way to plan it all out.  Hopefully after pinteresting a bit, I may come up with a way to make it easier.  I'll definitely share if it works!!!

For this week...

Fresh veggies in a olive oil, salt & pepper over steamed brown rice AND a rotisserie chicken!
