I have been eating like crap lately. As you can see from prior menu plans we have been eating out a lot (and many times it is for buffalo wings which I love but are so unhealthy!) The other day I went through 4 outfits for work before I found a skirt that fit. I was disgusted! So I am on a mission to start eating healthier.
Menu planning is a key component for me because if I don’t plan, I resort to “easy” foods which usually are not healthy. Planning must include not only dinners but also breakfasts, lunches and, even more important for me, snacks. I am also tracking what I eat through My Fitness Pal which really helps me. To maintain energy throughout the day I have to eat very few carbs and high amounts of protein. Below is a more detailed menu plan than I normally make to try and keep me on track.
Breakfast: Protein packed pancakes
Lunch: Asparagus Tart with Cauliflower Crust
Dinner: Sausage and White Bean Stew with Kale (recipe to come)
Wednesday: Monkey Girl has music class after work so this is always a great leftover or slow cooker day
Breakfast: Leftover pancakes
Lunch: Leftover vegetarian tostadas
Dinner: Leftover soup
Breakfast: Greek Yogurt with Kiwi
Lunch: Buffalo chicken and Broccoli Salad (recipe to come)
Dinner: Chicken, Pasta and Chickpea Stew (I froze a bunch the last time I made it = super easy dinner)
Breakfast: Fresh fruit
Lunch: Vegetable Stir Fry with Tofu Shirataki Noodles
Dinner: Fish Tacos
Celery with Chive and Garlic seasoned light cream cheese
Dry Roasted Almonds (portioned into 1oz snack bags)
Light string cheese
As you can see, I am at a loss as to what to to eat for breakfast that is low carb and healthy. I don’t eat eggs so my options are limited. If you have any suggestions, please leave a comment below!
