Is there food at home?
Ooops sorry,let me say hi first.
Hi there Everyone!
Welcome to my blog.
My name is Esasina, I am a food lover and food enthusiast, simply put, unless I’m fasting, I rarely turn down food, FOR WHAT? lol!
I hate food wastage, one should take only what he or she can eat or give it out to someone who needs it.
I’ve a saving target to meet this year,so after much thought, I decided to cut down on my expenditure. One of the ways: by taking food to work instead of buying from food vendors.
Sounds like a plan right?
Sunday after Church,I went grocery shopping for the week at Palace Shopping Mall,Spintex branch. I had a menu plan in mind so it was easier to do my groceries.
Breakfast : A glass of mixed fruit juice with a tuna and vegetable wrap.
Lunch: Leftover chicken and canned tuna with fried yam (bought the yam)
Breakfast :Ekuegbemi with groundnuts and milk.
Lunch:Spaghetti with chicken in spicy soy sauce.
Snack: a glass of mixed fruit juice.
Breakfast : Vegetable and tuna wrap with a glass of juice.
Lunch: Banku and leftover okro stew
Breakfast :Muesli with milk and bananas
Lunch: Potatoes boiled in butter and cheese with chicken in spicy soy sauce.
Breakfast : Vegetable and tuna wrap with a glass of mixed fruit juice
Lunch: Kenkey and tuna with pepper
I bought a few ingredients : lettuce, tuna flakes, sweet corn, baked beans, Ekuegbemi (corn grits) cereal mix, tortilla, 2 litres of fruit juice and even a packet of chewing gum. The plan was to eat from home and avoid buying from food vendors.
Fortunately, there are many ingredients at home so I did not shop for every single item. Thanks to my Amazing Mummy and her kitchen, I love you Mummy.
My meals were always in storage bowls and safely put in my lunch tote bag.
I reheated all my meals in the microwave during lunch time but a thermos flask can keep them warm if you don’t have a microwave.
Today is Friday and I am happy that I was able to do this!
Meal prepping and planning my meals was fun!
Waking up at dawn to meal prep was a struggle but, thankfully I did it anyway!
My social media Family kept me motivated too! Thank you to my Instagram family.
I’m glad I did this.

It’s Friday and I hope you’ve a restful weekend.
