Menu Plan Monday

Menu Plan Monday

It's time again for Menu Plan Monday! I really hope more low carbers will join in the Monday mayhem. There are a few of us but it's always fun to see what others are eating. I find that planning and posting our menus for the week really does help me keep grocery and time spending under control but more than that it's a major help in keeping me on the right nutritional track!

Participating is very easy so please join us!

Our menus for last week didn't pan out as I'd hoped. We didn't go out to eat except for the one night at the gym's cafe but we ate some meals that weren't on the menu. That's okay, though, we're having those foods this week!

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

Long John Silver's Grilled Pacific Salmon with no rice and two servings of the Vegetable Medley

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

Blackened salmon with vegetable soup and baked cauliflower

Turkey pastrami and cheese wrap at the gym's cafe one night but no pita chips!

BBQ chicken breasts, leftover baked sweet potato, and salad

Tuna salad made with dill pickle relish, mayonnaise, garlic, and a little balsamic vinegar nestled in a nice low carb Lavash bread and served with fresh steamed vegetables and a salad

Chicken salad made with leftover baked chicken breast and rolled in lettuce leaves, served with my special spinach-almond-garlic saute

None of those meals are very high in carbs or fat and they're all thrifty and easy. Of course, other than Saturday, which is our day off, we'll be at the gym after dinner gettin' that sweat on!
