Meal Plan – Week 6

I have to admit, I have not been doing a great job the last couple of weeks. So, I am re-assessing and to try and stay as much on track as possible, a couple of allowances have been added. This is to ensure I am keeping to the right food options, at least 80-90% of the time (that’s the goal anyway right :-), allowances are denoted with the ^).

I have also added my exercise commitment for the week.

DAY BREAKFAST DINNER EXERCISE
Sunday Oatmeal with Grated Apple + Sultana’s Roast Chicken dinner with roast vegetables and steamed greens 3-4 Mile Walk
Monday Oatmeal with Banana and Almond butter Vegetable Baked Pasta
Tuesday Whole Grain Cereal with Soy ^Shepherd’s Pie (my husband’s favorite meal) 3-4 Mile Walk
Wednesday Fruit + Flax Seed Pizza* (Vegetarian restaurant meal)
Thursday Whole Grain Cereal with Soy Omelets
Friday Oatmeal with Banana and Almond butter ^Carbonara+Quinoa Spaghetti 3-4 Mile Walk

*The family is having Pizza, I am traveling so will be trying to eat a vegan/Vegetarian meal out.

Meal Plan – Week 2

So, the first week on the plan was a little tough, especially Monday-Wednesday. I craved everything; sugar, cheese, meat and fresh bread. I managed to stay with the plan most of the time, and was happy when I found suitable options that I could eat at my favorite Friday lunch place.

I plan to pre-make some meals this week, especially for breakfast as I find it hard to make the time for it. I prefer to get the extra time in bed :-). Tonight, I am making a vegetable chill in the slow-cooker to have on hand for lunch or dinner, when I change my mind. For lunch, which I normally pick up at work, there were great options in our new cafe. It has a new global section that has a vegan/vegetarian option, it varies from stir fries to indian to mexican; there is also a great salad bar.

I plan on making dessert tonight – found several recipes for date balls which sound great. I am picking things out from several recipes and combining it into something I hope I like 😉

Here’s this weeks menu:
