My weekly Meal Plan

I find that I do so much better if I have a plan! On my Facebook page this week I posted my meal plan and a few of you said this might be helpful to you as a blog post with links to recipes. So, here goes!!

*(E)I made a yummy cinnamon apple baked pancake...recipe coming soon! (It was supposed to be a surprise!)
*(S)Goat Yogurt (I buy mine at Trader Joes), vanilla stevia and strawberries
*(E)Energizing Oat Pancakes I top with either all fruit jelly or berries. I usually make a tea with added protein to make sure it lasts me three hours.
*(S)London Fog tea and chicken or beef breakfast sausages (Walmart carries the beef and Trader Joes carries the chicken)
*(FP)Overnight oats - I follow this recipe: Oatmeal 1/4 cup of old fashioned oats 1/3 cup of unsweetened almond milk 1/4 cup of 0% fat Greek yogurt (I use goat yogurt) 1/2 tsp of vanilla 1 tbs of Truvia (or use another plan approved sweetener) 1 tsp of chia seeds 1 tbs of Vanilla Protein Powder top with berries(keep under 1/2 cup if you use blueberries) Make sure to let them sit 6 hours or overnight. Simple :)

*(S)Salmon fillet over sautéed cabbage - I just pan fry a salmon fillet (frozen) and while that cooks I sautee up chopped cabbage in a little butter. When finished I drizzle a little sesame oil on top and place the finished salmon fillet on top. YUM! Beautiful deep S lunch, easy too!
*(S)Sandwiches on Just Like Grandmas Rolls, I usually pick up some lean chicken deli lunch meat and make 2 little sandwiches. I will also have something like cucumbers or bell pepper slices on the side. A couple of pieces of dark chocolate go wonderfully with this!
*(S)Chinese chicken salad....this is coming up soon in a blog post, sorry, you will just have to wait a little bit!! SO GOOD!
*Leftovers! Economical, quick, easy and always on plan!

*(S)I always buy a family size tray of chicken, breasts, drumsticks, thighs, whatever. Then one day  for dinner my hubby will BBQ the whole bunch! I season simply with salt, pepper and usually garlic powder so I can use leftovers for anything! Nice big yummy salad, I love adding olives, avocado, veggies and pine nuts to the top. I make a simple "honey" mustard dressing that I love!
*(S)Meatloaf and mashed cauli - should I write this up as a post??
*(CO)Carne Asada tacos. I made this marinade Carne Asada "Darn" Good and let it marinade overnight. I will serve this with corn tortillas (2 regular or 4 sprouted). I will also have avocado, salsa and refried beans. We love our tacos and I would rather enjoy them fully as a crossover than feel cheated with a  single fuel source. :) We are serious taco people. LOL
*Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs - easy, clean spaghetti squash thoroughly, cut in half place cut side down in crockpot, pour in 2 jars of no sugar or homemade sauce. I add in chicken Italian sausages and turn it on low all day. Remove, clean and shred squash, serve with sauce and meat. I will have a salad with this. Probably have some Just like grandmas garlic butter rolls too.
*(S)Big Mac Salad- this has great reviews, I am excited to try it!
*(E)Sloppy Joes on Sweet potatoes, side salad. YUM!

*(E) Cinnamon rolls...again, trying something for the blog, SORRY!!
*(S) Briana Thomas' Fudgy Brownies
*(E) Sheri Grahams no bake cookies - I omit the peanut flour and add in protein powder or cashew butter, both work great!
*(S) Cheesecake berry crunch, I use goat cheese that comes in a log for the cream cheese and I sub in pistachios for the almonds. SO YUM!

*Dark chocolate, I LOVE Trader Joes brand of dark, great price too! I will often have a small handful of nuts with that
*Light string cheese with a piece of fruit, thankfully being on THM has helped heal my gut enough I can now enjoy some cheeses!
*Big Boy Smoothie, one of my favorites
*BP tea (I am not a coffee drinker, just love me despite my flaws)
