Menu Plan Monday

Menu Plan Monday
We have a busy week coming up (since when do we not?) but I'm armed and ready to go! I really do appreciate the opportunity to take part in Menu Plan Monday and hope that if you haven't joined in yet, you will!

Our menu this week will be tasty and contain food that's lower in fat and carbs. If you're a die hard low carber who doesn't worry about fat, more power to you! This goes for you die hard fat minimalists, too! We all have our own WOE (way of eating) and right now ours is lower in fat and carbs. But I'm still trying to keep it high in flavor and its quite a balancing act.

So, here's this week's menu in no particular order except for Sunday's dinner which is listed first and Monday's dinner, which is listed second:

Baked salmon, seasoned with basil and garlic pepper, vegetable soup, and a small baked potato

Turkey pastrami and cheese wrap with a small salad (we're having dinner at the gym's cafe where they serve very tasty food)

Beef, Cheese, and Jalapeno sausages baked with cherry tomatoes (inspired by this recipe), served with cabbage and green beans

Spinach salad with a few baked chicken wings

Turkey sausage meatballs (adaptation of this recipe), served with baked sweet potato and steamed broccoli

Biiiig salad loaded with all sorts of vegetables and a bowl of vegetable soup

Turkey with dressing, mashed with a little gravy, green beans, broccoli, and peas and carrots (you can read more about the surprising result of eating this meal tonight, Tuesday)

And that's about it for the week. If something changes I'll post the change on this entry and write another if it warrants that much attention. ;)
