Menu Monday.

Last week I made my meal plan simple so I would stick to it. Lets see how I did:

Monday - Jenny-O turkey brats and carrots - Delicious, nutritious, easy, and filling!
Tuesday - Chicken Caesar Salad (with Ken's Lite Caesar dressing) - Easy, yummy, and filling as well.
Wednesday - Trader Joe Spinach Pie - very tasty and relatively healthy.
Thursday - Tuna melts - super quick, easy, and one of my faves.
Friday - date night! - we had tofu pad thai and it was amazing.

This week Garth and I taking your advice from Friday and limiting our carb intake by checking out the South Beach Diet. I cannot believe you don't have to count calories. That is so refreshing to me as I have counted calories for the last five years. It seems like a great lifestyle for eating and it will us limit our processed food intake a lot. The meal plan this week will reflect our new style of eating (as we are in phase 1).

Monday - grilled chicken and green beans.
Tuesday - turkey burgers, lettuce, mustard, and tomato (no bun).
Wednesday - steak with roasted brussel sprouts.
Thursday - turkey breast wrapped in lettuce, cheese, light ranch dressing, and onion.
Friday - grilled chicken and edamame.

What's on your menu this week?

I think you'll definitely see the scale go down this week!

If you're anything like me, be prepared to feel a little out of sorts. I went through a "carb flu" and it wasn't pretty. But just know you're eating healthy and doing your body good! :) And once that scale starts moving, you'll be able to incorporate whole grains into your diet again

I can't believe you've counted calories for 5 years! I always make my stuff from scratch, and have no idea how to even calculate (quickly at least) the amount of calories. Good for you! :)

I just don't have it in me to meal plan but I'm so impressed by those of you who do!
