Today's Food and Sunday Food Prep Recap


My food prep included the usual chicken breast, a pork tenderloin, tilapia, cod, salmon, hard boiled eggs and lean ground beef.  Veggies: green beans, broccoli/cauliflower, asparagus, portabello mushrooms, artichokes (on sale!), and zucchini & yellow squash. Additionally I have kale, iceberg, green-leaf lettuce, colored peppers, and cucumbers.  Fruit is strawberries, bananas, apples, grapefruit, oranges (the citrus was free), and blackberries. Instead of my usual brown rice, I did lentils this week (green). More fiber, more protein, for the same calories & carbs as rice. Maybe boosting my fiber will help me get past this hump. I cooked them in low-sodium (70 mg per cup) chicken broth with Spicy mexican seasonings. I also baked up a batch of granola.

Here's the menu for family dinners:
Sunday: Spaghetti - homemade sauce with ground beef & veggies over quinoa pasta with baked potatoes & garlic cheese bread. **I had grilled salmon with mustard, a baked potato with salsa on it, and a salad (kale, spinach, cabbage). 
Monday: Taco Salad - lean ground beef mixed with canned tomatoes & mexican seasonings (gotta love Mrs Dash!) over lettuce with tortilla chips. **For me... ground beef mix over kale/spinach/cabbage.
Tuesday: Chicken Sandwiches with Sweet Potato fries. **For me... grilled chicken breast, steamed portabello mushroom (free on my diet), and steamed veggies.
Wednesday: Leftovers. **For me... grilled chicken breast, sliced raw peppers, cucumbers.
ThursdayMeatLoaf & Smashed Potatoes. **For me... grilled chicken breast, steamed veggies.
FridayCrustless Spinach Quiche.  **For me... scrambled egg whites with veggies and a salad.
Saturday: Leftovers. **For me... grilled chicken breast, steamed veggies.
