Happy Monday! I wish everyone a smooth start to a new week.

It feels nice to be starting this day with my feet planted firmly on the ground and a fridge full of nutritious, batch cooked foods. Last week was a little haphazard when it came to meals, thanks to a long weekend of travel, and it definitely showed me how much organization and planning will be vital to me as I continue to navigate the combination of work and grad school! Here’s what’s on the agenda this week.

Menu Plan Monday

Staples:

•Black beans
•Quinoa (preparing a big batch for my soup tonight, and saving the leftovers for my lunch bowls)
•Sweet potato hummus
5-ingredient red curry coconut sauce
