You may not read this until Monday, but for once I’m actually planning my menu ahead of time (like I’m supposed to do), and shopping before the weekend. Yea me!
This week I’ve made dinner every night and brought my lunch everyday. It’s a big goal, but it feel nice to have met it. I’m feeling better already! I also have a few entrees and soups in the freezer that I can pack as lunches, so no excuses for eating junk this week.
If I have good sweets in the house, I won’t go to places that will tempt me. I’m determined to lower my cholesterol in the next 3 months. Yes, I know fondue night may get me, but I may also make a vegan version for me. Over the weekend I’ll have a fondue trial and see what makes the cut.
Soups for lunch and addition to dinners below:
To meet my cravings head on – healthier snacks:
Monday: Creamy pasta with chickenless strips, broccoli and bell pepper with ceasar salad
Thursday: Veggie Enchiladas with dirty rice leftovers
Friday: Chickenless bbq sandwiches with french fries and cole slaw
Sunday: leftover extravaganza or pepper steakless
