Action #1: Menu Plan Day

I’ve told you that I like to face fear head-on.

And, in the past, I have struggled with the fear of failure.

So, with my diet and weight loss, I have faced this fear head on.  In other words, I have failed completely.

So, it’s back to the drawing board.  I am doing low-carb, for two weeks, once again, with the exception of sushi bentos for lunch, thanks to the inexpensive nori that we found at the salvage grocery store.  Low-carb meals do cost a bit more to prepare–we’re looking at $80-$100 per week.  But I think we’re best off doing that for a couple of weeks, then adding whole grains back in.

I love to look at meal plans, to get ideas for myself.  So here is my meal plan, for this week.  I’ve just planned breakfasts and dinners, because I will be having sushi for lunch and Rob will be having salad or leftovers.  (Beanie’s lunch is provided at her school). 

Here is the plan:

Monday
Breakfast: Parmesan Eggs
Dinner: Curried Chicken with broccoli, Cashew Salad

Tuesday
Breakfast: Tuscan Baked Eggs
Dinner: Broccoli Cheese Casserole, BLT Salad, Roasted vegetables

Wednesday
Breakfast: Mexican Eggs
Dinner: Mexican Casserole, Roasted Vegetables, Cashew Salad

Thursday
Breakfast: Kale and Feta Casserole
Dinner: Spinach and Mozzarella Egg Bake, Roasted Vegetables, Cashew Salad

Friday
Breakfast: Kale and Feta Casserole
Dinner: Swedish Meatballs, BLT Salad, Roasted Vegetables

Saturday
Breakfast: Bell Pepper Casserole
Dinner: Greek Meatballs, BLT Salad, Roasted Vegetables

Sunday
Breakfast: Bell Pepper Casserole
Dinner: Bacon and Cheese Casserole, BLT Salad, Roasted Vegetables

So, what exciting meals are you having this week?

  1. I like your plan! I have never done too well on low/no carb diets but my husband could do it forever and they really do work well. I’ve been doing a great no carb granola for breakfast lately (which I have with Greek yoghurt) which I plan on doing on the blog over the weekend. I’ll let you know when I do it as its a great filler upper with lots of good fats to get you through to morning tea.

  2. i do have some suggestions for your planned diet. i think that maybe you should incorporate some sort of high fiber breakfast into your week . Some sort of good cereal or oatmeal with some fruit, this will keep you full for hours. Also, a couple of years ago I stopped eating dinner (a big dinner anyway), I have my main meal at lunchtime and then something light in the evening like soup, etc. You could make your daughter something and then you and hubby could eat a light dinner. This has worked very well for me as I can burn off everything I eat at lunch and I’m not sluggish in the evening. We used to make fun of senior citizens eating dinner at 4:00 in the afternoon, that’s why they do it. I’ve never been a fan of low carb diets, but being a vegan, I have to always watch the amount of carbs I take in anyway. I think you should at least try this and see if you feel better and start to lose weight. I don’t think you’re getting enough food at lunch, just a suggestion. Good luck
