We’re almost done with Phase 1. I am so excited. It’s not that I’ve missed my carbs – I really haven’t missed them much. But the meal planning is HARD. I was surprised at how difficult it can be to do Phase 1 on a tight budget. Oh well. Our last day of that is tomorrow. Then it should get easier.
Some of the things on this week’s menu are from last week. Things got changed around a bit, so since we already had the things to make those meals in the house, I moved some of the meals to this week.
Here’s our menu:
Sunday – turkey ham over tossed salads
Monday – ground beef, peppers, onions, and cabbage (it was really good!)
Tuesday – Crockpot Taco Chicken Stew (adapted to make it SB-friendly)
Wednesday – vegetable soup with multigrain rolls
Thursday – Chinese-style chicken with broccoli and brown rice
Friday – beef tacos with homemade multigrain tortillas
Saturday – hot dogs with sweet potato oven fries
Breakfast for us is usually eggs somehow. I also found a SB-friendly muffin recipe (no flour or sugar!) and a SB custard recipe. I think they’re great, but Stephen doesn’t like them as well. I like them because it’s easy to get tired of eggs (even with changing the veggies in them) so this is a nice option for some variety.
For S – it varies depending on what’s in the house – cereal, oatmeal, grits, pancakes, eggs, etc.
Lunch is either leftovers, tuna, salads, or beans. Tuna salad is a favorite of mine – and served in a garden-fresh tomato – yum. It’d be even better with chicken salad.
Snacks are fresh veggies, cheese sticks, etc.
We’re eating tons of veggies (which I am absolutely loving!), but I’m not planning all those out specifically. I am thankful that our garden is still producing – that really helps.
