Menu Plan Monday

I am finding I need to plan my meals and snacks better in order to stick to this diet...I also need to find some more ideas because eggs, yogurt, and beans are getting boring! So you will start to see a list of snacks as well as meals listed!

-Sausage and Egg Cups
-Eggs and ham
-Hard Boiled Eggs
-Greek Yogurt and Fruit, granola

-Hummus with red peppers
-Cookie Dough Hummus with an attempt to make it sugar free, but it will have mini chocolate chips.
-Homemade Lara Bars-Peanut Butter and Jelly
-Protein Shake...will need to get another chocolate one! 
-Black Bean Brownies

-Taco Salad(with turkey and black beans)
-Cheesy Ranch Chicken Chili(will use Greek Yogurt for sour cream)
-Baked Fish with Parmesan Cream Sauce
-black bean and sweet potato burgers
-Steak, Broccoli, Summer/Zucchini Squash
-Lime Salsa chicken wrap


  1. sounds good. I was thinking of making the Larabars this week too

  2. Too funny, I just found a recipe to make homemade larabars. We must be thinking alike!

  3. Hi, I'm visiting from Hallee the Homemaker ... I have not been able to get her Honey Oat Wheat Bread to work well for me (does not do well on the 2nd rise), but I now have a Zojirushi 2 lb bread maker and want to adapt the recipe to work ... she suggested I visit you and ask for help. Any words of wisdom?

  4. Hi Lisa Grace,

    thanks for stopping by!! the only thing you have to be careful of when adapting a reg. bread recipe to a bread machine is the amount the recipe is her original recipe makes 2-1 lb loaves approx I believe(it's been a while since I've made it) what i would do is, your machine should have come with a recipe book, id compare the if your recipe book says only to use 3 cups of flour(which is probably around half of what hallee's recipe has) then only do half of her recipe. but if your recipe book says it can use 7 cups of flour that is closer to what she uses then it will be fine to use her recipe as is! id still keep an eye on it in the beginning so the dough has the right consistancy. I've had bread machine recipes that need more flour should form a ball when it's kneading. if it looks really wet, or soft add in a 1 tbsp of flour at a time until the ball forms and it's slightly sticky to the touch. then you should be good to go! Hopefully this helps!

    so sorry i'm just responding now! I've been a bit behind on my blog and reading this email!!
