MEAL PLANNING MONDAY, June 8th
So I actually had a very similar menu planned for last week, but we had part of it. Honestly, we were out later a couple of nights so we either ate out or ordered in. My dinner main courses for the week are as follows:
Barbecue Ribs – we had these yesterday, along with salad and mashed potatoes
Hamburgers – those we are supposed to have tonight
Taco Salad – probably tomorrow
Salisbury Steak – I need to pick up more ground beef
Chicken Caesar Salad – I need to get some chicken
We were able to get to the Farmer’s Market over the weekend, but I couldn’t get any cucumbers, etc. I am hoping that I can pick some decent ones up at the grocery store. I was able to get tomatoes (regular and grape tomatoes) and lots of fruit. I am enjoying using the fresh fruit in my smoothies. However, I am realizing more and more that I need to perhaps leave out the bananas. Since I’ve started using myfitnesspal, I have realized that my breakfasts are high in calories. I knew my smoothies were high in PointsPlus, but I didn’t realize how high in calories and sugar they were. This is the reason that I started tracking manually again. I had tracked on SparkPeople, but I got to the point where I wasn’t looking at my calories at breakfast specifically, only the total calories and not a breakdown. I really think this is helping me make better choices. That’s the important thing right? Hope everyone has a fantastic week! Happy Monday!
