Yesterday my hubby and I made it our goal to eat every last junk food item we wanted to. No limits. And let me tell you, we did a really good job gorging ourselves. Ugh.
This is going to be a tough week for us. There is still so much candy, icecream, cookies, etc. lurking in corners of my kitchen. But we’re back on the healthy-eating wagon. I spent all day yesterday gathering recipes and making eating plans for the week, admittedly while brushing cookie crumbs off my notes.
Since I get many requests for meal ideas, and especially for healthy meal ideas, I’ll share my weekly menu.
Monday: Roasted Chicken (Ina’s recipe!), Mashed Cauliflower, Roasted Asparagus
Tuesday: Pork Tenderloin Salad (leftover pork from Saturday on top of some mixed greens, sliced pears, toasted pecans, a little bit of crumbled blue cheese, and a fig balsamic vinaigrette)
Wednesday: Skinnytaste Spaghetti Squash Sausage Lasagna Boats (you gotta check out Skinnytaste for lots of great healthy recipes)
Thursday: Chicken Salad This is a regular staple meal in our house: spinach, sliced chicken breast, craisins, feta cheese and pomegranate vinaigrette.
Friday: Date Night (tbd)
Saturday: PF Chang Copycat Lettuce Wraps
Sunday: White Chicken Chili
So the plan is in place. The groceries have been ordered. Now to execute . . . . and to ignore that good fresh Italian bread calling my name.
