Meal Plan

So God told me to plan out my meals for the week.  At least that is the impression I got this morning.. it is now after 8 PM.  OK!! OK!! I'll do it!!! I am 'mostly Paleo' trying to increase emphasis on adding veggies.

Breakfasts.. Eggs, sauteed veggies.  OR Chicken Jerky and coconut muffins.  Hubs will have this or oatmeal.  We add milk the night before and he can just pop it in the microwave. Kid has the usual of sausage or pancakes.

Lunches... Salads with the basics plus a protein or 'sammie roll-ups' which use swiss chard as bread.  I love them.  Hubs will have bread.   Kid is random.

Sunday- Squash soup.
Monday- Leftover pork for hubs, salmon for me.  Roasted broccoli.  Rice for the boys.
Tuesday- Chicken meatballs (I hope), Roasted golden beats.  Pasta for the boys.
Wednesday- Whole chicken.  Roasted brussels and asparagus (from frozen).  Roasted potatoes.
Thursday- Enchilada from the chicken
Friday- Leftovers or I will go to my favorite take out place.
Saturday- cut me some slack.  I never plan for meals so I think 6 days is pretty good planning!!!

Snacks... soup from Sunday, Larabars, coconut muffins, jerky, fruit....

howdy all...

I forgot i was going to blog this adventure.  Down 2.5 lbs.  Actually 2.6 if you want to get technical.  I have been keeping a food diary.  I planned my meals this week, but it is still hard some days to figure out what to eat.  Today I had a slow cooker curry on the menu, and it is cooking but it just doesn't 'sound' good.  I am a cook at the last minute type of gal.   I also measured my gut.  I am never sure how you are suppose to do that.  Read two things.. one of which said suck it in and measure it.  So I did both and jotted them both down.

And focusing on Proverbs 103:5.  He satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagles.

Is anybody out there? Does anybody care?

So I will be starting my health(ier) journey tomorrow.   I do pretty good but I need to step it up a notch.  I want to see if changing things up will make a difference.  I have been gfcf for many years.. sf as well.  I am going to do an 85% Paleo eating plan.. with about 10% added carbs and 5% what I want.. but no sugar.  Perhaps no sweeteners of any kind.  But for this week I have used my handy dandy Excel spreadsheet to put what meals I will be having, with hyperlinks to the recipes.  Mostly chicken, veggies, salads and the like.  I may make Paleo coconut muffins (made with raw honey) for this week when I am having a giant craving.  And both my boys like them.

Since I never write on this blog I am thinking it may be a pretty silent journey here.. but if you are watching, feel free to comment and follow along or join in.
