{Meal Plan} Chinese Chicken Stirfry

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

I am slowly trying to get back into my regular routine of blogging, however having 3 very active kids at home I’m finding it a little hard to find a spare minute, so I want to thank you for your patience.   I am pleased however to resume my weekly meal planning posts.  Each week I share our weekly meals (which is from the week prior so I can show you pictures) and also the items I bake for morning teas and lunch boxes.  You will find meals that are our favourites used frequently and I also like to find time to make something new.

How is you’re chicken curry healthy? What oil do you use. And the sauce you add is not made from scratch. Its bought of the shelf. And meat pies, mash potatoes or pasta are not the healthy choice

Katrina January 21, 2013 - 9:51 PM

I’m sure I titled the chicken curry as easy not healthy. I have never suggested that readers follow ‘my’ meal plan, I have just suggested that they ‘do’ meal plan. These posts are simply there to share recipes I have tried through the week. I have never claimed that my meal plans are only ‘healthy choice’ meals.

There is nothing unhealthy about mashed potatoes and pasta…I don’t know where people get all these unscientific ideas about what’s healthy and not. It’s certainly is more nutritious for kids and adults than just eat a salad instead for example…
Keep going Katrina, you are doing a great job. Sometimes you have to buy or cook what’s easiest for the family. Better than let them starve or get fast food from the corner…seriously, not everbody has time to cook all day…

Thank you BB 🙂

The focus of this website is not about dieting, losing weight, getting fit or improving your overall health. It is about ORGANISING your home and lifestyle. In this post she is encouraging the concept of meal planning, not low carb, low fat recipes. If you don’t have anything nice to say, simply press the little x in the top right hand corner of your screen.

JG January 21, 2013 - 6:51 PM

I’m sorry but I didn’t see anywhere that she proclaimed this weeks menu to be full of healthy choices? Not everyones a health bunny and that’s not something to be judged on! I love that she makes the effort to share ideas and successfully inspires people 🙂

Jules January 21, 2013 - 8:03 PM

I love your website! using it everyday at the moment an LOVE it. Thanks for all of your work and effort, My family appreciates it xx

Katrina January 21, 2013 - 9:41 PM

Thank you, Jules for this lovely message, I LOVE writing it, so much fun putting it all together 🙂

Azlin February 5, 2016 - 9:08 AM

I love your help through my email everyday too! Keep it up! Eventho I need to change the meal using Halal groceries, it doesn’t mean I can’t follow Kat and her blog. Thank YOU kat.

Well in this day and age it should be about healthy choices, its one thing to be organised and another to be lazy. I’m not saying that a lot of effort hasn’t gone into this website, I’m just saying that eating healthy and clean is just as easy, if you are already organised then there really shouldn’t be any excuses. But eating things from a box, or a container is hardly healthy………………………

PT if your so against the way that Katrina has set up the meal planning, then don’t follow it. Set up your own meal plan if your not happy with the way it is organised here. This website is designed to help people not to judge and give negative critism. Like what HH said if you have nothing nice to say then maybe you should try a different website that is more suited to you.

diane hecksher April 29, 2014 - 1:23 PM

Really, if your so into health why not share your meal plan for a week

Janevstar January 26, 2013 - 11:15 AM

So missed your inspiring meal planning ideas, we try to low carb but you remind me of such variety, so welcome back to a new year

Katrina January 27, 2013 - 9:03 PM

Aaw thank you 🙂

PT, we would all love to be able to eat healthy meals but sometime it is just not possible. I have a home with 8 people living in it, 6 of the little people are under the age of 12 so for me having a meal plan is fantastic along with Kats other house hold tips. When I can I will substitute ingredients to make it a little healthier however sometime I just can’t. My point is, it’s the whole idea of having a plan is to keep me on track when organizing my family and Kat helps me and many other do that, don’t see why you’re not able to do the same and take the plan for what it is, a plan.

Kelly May 10, 2014 - 8:22 AM

I think you do a fantastic job and I take my hat off to you.

Bec June 12, 2014 - 9:57 AM

I find it very difficult to read your negative comments PT. I actually think that Katrina’s followers are a community and support within itself. We all have family, home and other pressures and its nice to be reminded on the tough days that other women feel the same struggle, pressure and exhaustion to juggle the lives of all the people in their home. This e-environment was designed to connect and support and you don’t seem like a very supportive person. I feel sorry for you that you tinge it with negativity instead of sharing something helpful that could contribute to fellow followers.

Amanda December 29, 2014 - 9:18 AM

My mother always taught me that if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all. I think this is an awesome site and the meal planner a fantastic example of getting organised – what this site is all about – and if I don’t like every meal on the example given, I don’t make all the meals from the example given. Cooking is about choices and I think PT needs to take their negative comments to a more appropriate forum. A health food site perhaps. I love the daily updates and ideas and will keep following. I don’t usually put my 2 cents worth in but sometimes I feel the need to speak up. Keep up the fantastic job and remember people who criticise just because they can are doing it just because they can. Says more about them than you/your site. 🙂

Carolyn December 29, 2014 - 9:29 AM

I love your website! I have found some really great recipes. I get sick of cooking the same things all the time. I have organised my pantry, so I can find everything. So thank you!!

Denise December 29, 2014 - 12:23 PM

I love this website You have so many great ideas. I also love to read the positive comments from all the other members. Thank you Katrina.

TW February 6, 2015 - 1:17 PM

Hi I don’t usually post, but comments from PT judging your meal planning got me quite angry. Please there is enough negativity in this world without you being rude to someone who is just trying to help others. It is not up to you to tell strangers what they should or should not be eating. If you disagree with these choices fine, but please keep it to yourself. ….. Katrina I follow your page and have found many hints and tips fantastic! I have been able to organize my home and I can now really enjoy being a stay at home mother without the chaos ! Just want you to know your work is much appreciated !!!

Michelle February 6, 2015 - 2:27 PM

Thank you for creating an honest meal plan that we can actually follow and adapt to fit our families. I am loving this blog! It’s helping me when I’m a bit down with a couple of young children and renovations. I’m determined to use your site to help me declutter and really be organised so that i can teach my children these skills. Thank you

Ann-Marie Paterson February 6, 2015 - 5:07 PM

Thank you Kat for sharing your knowledge and experiences. Life is not always as straight forward as we would always like it to be. Your website continues to inspire me and motivate me in the ongoing journey of staying on top of the little things so we can deal with the other trials of family life. I have found your organisational tips helpful and at times an absolute blessing! Thank you for reminding about the neccessity of variety in meal planning but at times to just keeping it simple to get through the evening. YOU ARE AWESOME!

PT please go away. Just hit the x
This is not for goodie goodies like you.
I personally love the fact that its real and free

Sonia February 9, 2015 - 1:56 PM

PT.. Looks like we all feel the same. .. Go away and join another group if you have nothing helpful to say. .. I have one child that is G/F and one that is D/F so I can’t always make the recipes posted by Katrina BUT if I really like it and can…I simply adapt it to our needs! I certainly don’t feel the need to criticise her on her page! I think you are doing a great service Katrina. .. You’ve really helped a lot of mums and dads out there. .. Keep it up.. Your followers love you and your efforts xxx

Katrina - The Organised Housewife February 9, 2015 - 3:58 PM

Thank you Sonia, I’ve totally missed PT’s comment.

Kath February 5, 2016 - 11:54 AM

Thank you Kat for sharing these great recipes. I think the recipes are perfect for families! The meals look hearty and nourishing and let’s not forget children are growing bodies and do need a little bit of fat in their diet. I think people need to be appreciative that someone has taken the time to share their meal ideas and recipes for free!!! While we would all like to advocate healthy eating for our children and ourselves, it’s not always possible to cook healthy meals from scratch or buy whole food ingredients which are often very costly! everyday. I know that I don’t.
Please be thankful for these great meal ideas.
Kat I love your blog! I visit it on a daily basis and it has provided a sanctuary to retreat to from my messy and chaotic life….
