    Breakfast: Coffee with creamer
    Lunch: Slow cooker pulled pork with bbq sauce on a whole wheat bun, banana, cheese stick
    Snack: Possibly a protein shake made with only powder and almond milk - depends on what I decide to do for dindins.
    Dinner: Was supposed to be turkey pot pie, but the pulled pork I made yesterday made waaaaaaaaay more than a week's worth of lunches for my boyfriend and I - so we'll probably be having it for dinner too. Not sure how yet, but I'm thinking maybe pulled pork omelettes with veggies or a side salad?

    Last March I decided to stop eating out 3-5 times a week because it became clear that the excess of fat, salt and sugar was adversely affecting my weight loss. In doing so decided to make my meals a little more easier by eating the same meal the same day of the week. So here is what I do:

    Monday: Salmon, vegetables and a fruit cup.
    (We have fallen in love with sweet potatoes, I love chopping up brussel sprouts, sweet peppers, medley tomatoes, garlic cloves, spaghetti squash etc)

    Tuesday: White bean ground turkey chili and a fruit cup (I add a 1/4 cup of quinoa because I love that stuff!)

    Wednesday: Chicken, vegetables and a fruit cup

    Thursday: Pasta and a fruit cup (hubby has thin pasta and I have orzo pasta).

    Friday: Homemade cheese Pizza and a fruit cup.

    Saturday: Chicken drummets and a fruit cup. I make BBQ/Honey for my hubby and lemon/cilantro for me😊.

    Sunday: My hubby has shrimp, vegetables and a fruit cup. I eat items that I’ve meal prepped during the week like chili from Tuesday or pasta from Thursday

    My breakfast varies between a yogurt drink high in protein or a slice of Dave’s Killer bread w/PB or oatmeal/Oaty Milk/PB and Chia seeds (I love this oatmeal!). I also love scrapple (but I make sure to keep it at two ounces per serving) and of course a good egg!

    We head to the gym Monday through Friday and pack our lunch in a small cooler which is great. Lunch for me is more of making sure I have good protein. That could be Fairlite Chocolate Milk (which I love), a Wella Bar, cottage cheese, Dave’s Killer Bread etc (and grapes). I also love the Orchard Valley Trail Mix packs (especially the antioxidant mixed nuts/cranberries) which I drop in my purse. On Saturday/Sunday I ride my bike and pack a little lunch to take with me. The bike trails are beautiful!

    I know it may sound crazy/repetitive but it has helped take the “oh my goodness, what are we having for dinner” stress out of it all. I’m able to plug in what I will eat including snacks and try to leave 500 calories a day (3500 a week...one pound a week). God knows I have my days as we all do but I start again and appreciate it as another chance to do better.

    Of course when I go on vacation (we just enjoyed a short one) I eat what I want and enjoy.

    There are times I’ve found recipes I absolutely love and I make those (I’ve found a few on MFP). I love MFP because you can include the recipe link in MFP and all the ingredients pop up or you can scan in all the ingredients. The app allows you to select the number of servings and there you have it.

    Am: Big mug of coffee, half and half
    1st meal: 7 slices of Center Cut bacon, 2 eggs, 2 egg whites (fried in some of the bacon fat) and 6oz of spring mix sautéed with garlic and shallots in some of the bacon fat.
    Snack: Iced coffee with half and half and half and a half scoop of unflavored protein powder. I also ate a couple small pieces of fresh pineapple as I peeled, cored and sliced a whole one.
    2nd meal: 3oz iceburg lettuce, 3oz green cabbage, Picante salsa, a dressing made from guacamole, light sour cream and lime juice, topped with lots of grilled chicken thighs, seasoned with homemade taco seasoning.

    Shoot, that reminds me to go see how much homemade taco seasoning I have left
