To keep myself from gorging (because that really is the behaviour that got me to where I was with my weight) on everything in the house (even though it is all healthy) I have made myself a 2 day menu that I plan on following. Hopefully this will keep me accountable to my blogging friends and therefore I will feel good about my choices. Following is my menu and I will let you know if I deviate from this plan at all.
Breakfast- 1 cup Steel Cut Oats topped with 1 tsp. brown sugar and 1 cup fresh berries.
Snack- if needed a cup of fresh pineapple.
Lunch- 3 oz. chicken breast (sliced) on 2 slices of Organic Rye Bread with lettuce and honey mustard. 1/2 cup each of baby carrots, cucumber, peppers and celery.
Snack- Green Monster Smoothie from The Clean Eating Mama blog.
*I haven't had one of these before but bought what I needed to make it yesterday and I am looking forward to trying it. I love smoothies generally!*
Supper- Homemade Lentil Soup, 8 organic Stone Wheat crackers and a Babybel Swiss Mini Cheese.
Snack- if needed a Grapple. *These too I have not tried but heard they were good and bought them yesterday to try.*
Breakfast- 1 cup Steel Cut Oats with a mashed banana and 1 tablespoon of organic Peanut butter. A side of 1 cup fresh pineapple.
