Were you snowed in this weekend due to Winter Storm Jonas?
We got quite a bit of snow in Philly between Friday night and Sunday morning, and the winds were pretty intense at times. I probably should have gone outside on Saturday, but I just wanted to let it snow! I thought it looked absolutely beautiful, but other areas, like the Jersey Shore, really got it bad. Hopefully, everyone is okay out there.
Every Sunday I share my weekly meal plan, consisting of a healthy and wholesome breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks to get through each day. And each week I share my meals as part of the What’s For Dinner meal planning linkup with Laura from Mommy Run Fast!

I’ve been wanting to make a chili for the longest time. Thankfully, Laura provided us with an awesome butternut squash chili recipe as part of the Runners Reset program! This recipe features ground turkey, beans, corn, onions, tomatoes (which I didn’t have), spices, and of course, butternut squash! I ended up eating most of the chili during the week for lunch, which really hit the spot!
These were so easy to make and really tasty! Just take 1/2 cup of oats, 1/2 cup of almond butter (or peanut butter), add 1/2 cup of honey, and roll it all together! I wish the recipe only made more because they are actually pretty addictive to eat! Thanks to Laura for another great recipe!
This week I’m going to focus on making more meals with my slow cooker. I think the chili worked out really well, and it takes off so much pressure. I met with my dietitian last week, and she gave me a sheet full of crockpot meals that I can make on a weekly or monthly basis by stocking up leftovers in the freezer. Hopefully, this will be a way to minimize some of the uncertainty I usually have at the beginning of each week!
