Menu Plan – Week of March 5

1x1.trans Menu Plan   Week of March 5

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.

Monday
Breakfast: Greek Yogurt with Kiwi
Lunch: Leftover Flat Iron Steak and Roasted Asparagus and Orange Salad
Dinner: Vegetarian Tostadas

Tuesday:
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

Thursday:
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)

Friday:
Breakfast:
Lunch:  Balsamic Shrimp with Bacon Mixed Green Salad
Dinner: Lager Turkey Burgers

Saturday:
Breakfast: Homemade low sugar granola
Lunch:  Zesty Spiced Lentil Salad
Dinner: Taco Salad

Sunday:
Breakfast: Fresh fruit
Lunch:  Vegetable Stir Fry with Tofu Shirataki Noodles
Dinner: Fish Tacos

Snacks:
Celery with Chive and Garlic seasoned light cream cheese
Dry Roasted Almonds (portioned into 1oz snack bags)
Light string cheese
Pickles
Beef Jerkey
Homemade Popcorn

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!

  2. good for you for meal planning! i’m trying really hard, but am only managing to stick to it about 1/2 the time. i think it just needs to become a habit for me and then it will be easier.
