I ate like a pig last week. When I eat bad – I feel horrible. My whole body rages against me to punish me for eating the sweet and salty and a little too comforting of foods. Even a good workout cannot outweigh the bad feeling from over indulgence! Speaking of that remind me to tell you about the newest exercise I have added into my life!
OK back to the topic at hand: For some odd reason I do not think I am alone in this whole body strike. Today I am posting some recipes and meal ideas for the week. You know, eat good this week so that over the weekend you do not feel like a total loser bum for eating Italian Creme Cake or Pecan Pie Bars or Shepherd’s Pie.
This week breakfasts are protein based and limited on carbs for me. I do try to take in my carbs for the day at breakfast but keep them limited to a maximum of seventeen.
Boiled egg, toast with locally sourced honey, and a small banana – favorite breakfast!
Scrambled egg, turkey bacon, toast with locally sourced honey – another favorite!
Atkins Protein Shake for the busy mornings where I don’t have time to eat – A.K.A. I slept too late!
Lunch is when I really eat! This week I’m having redundant lunches but that is OK! I don’t mind replicating meals.
Low carb chicken salad is on the agenda! I like to have it plain, on a salad, or in a lettuce leaf wrap. I can put this stuff back too – I am not going to lie to you about that!
Turnip Greens with Squash & Onions are another HUGE favorite and totally shout out – She’s Southern! I can eat greens every day all day long. They are so good for you and high in vitamins and minerals.
Dinners are tricky because they have to be something a four year old and a nine year old will have interest in too! This week I’m whipping up some family favorites including:
Mexican Chicken Soup which is low carb and delicious. I will be doubling or maybe tripling the recipe so we can enjoy it for a few nights (or all week if I so feel led!)
Turkey Burger “Steaks” are also on the plan. I buy Butterball Turkey Burger and wrap them in foil with onions and mushrooms – don’t forget the Worcestershire sauce! I bake them for about twenty minutes on 350 degrees and we’re good to go! Serve it up with green beans and its a score!
I will feature recipes on Snap Chat this week! So be sure to add me – abullnojoke!
Happy healthy feasting!
