Default what's on today's menu? (week of June 26-July 2)

So much for posting my menu every day last week. But hey, if at first you don't succeed...so here goes again!

Today's plan:
  • Trader Joe's cereal (with soy and flax seeds) w/skim milk, sliced banana, and sliced strawberries (very yummy!)
  • oatmeal
  • salad (romaine lettuce, chicken breast, cabbage, broccoli, ginger, ginger & soy dressing)
  • yogurt
  • watermelon
  • large chicken breast with Italian dressing type marinade, whole-wheat pasta salad w/ff sour cream and ff Italian dressing
  • fudgesicle
Should be around 1700-1750 calories (never know exactly how much to count for marinades and dressings and stuff).

I'm trying to cut out snacking, so I'm hoping posting on here will help.

Today so far:

Porridge with mixed berries and yoghurt
Half a chickpea omelette with asparagus and bean side salad
Spinach and ricotta filo parcels with a big rocket, tomato and spinach salad
1 plum, 1 apple, dried apricots
1/2 yellow pepper and houmous
strawberries and cream
a teeny bit of chocolate

Tomorrow's plan:

Porridge with mixed berries and yoghurt
open rye bread sandwiches with houmous and chargrilled mediterranean veg, a bit of spinach, and 1/2 yellow pepper to dip in the excess houmous
Wholemeal pasta with broad beans and feta
Pomegranate, apple (maybe two), possibly a plum
And another snack I've not decided on yet.

My goodness, YP1, so inspiring! Just reading your menus shows how healthy we should all be eating, and not just to lose weight, but for forever!

I stuck perfectly to mymenu yesterday with the one exception that I had 3 bites of my boyfriend's leftover pork lo mein. Other than thatminor indecency, I was right on target!

As for today:
  • TJ's cereal w/skim milk, sliced banana, and sliced strawberry
  • oatmeal
  • homemade soup (black beans, cabbage, salsa, reduced-fat cheese, fat-free cream cheese, organic low-sodium chicken broth, chili powder, crushed red pepper, and ff sour cream)--YUM!
  • yogurt
  • salad--romaine lettuce, chicken, cabbage, broccoli, strawberries, sliced almonds, and sweet onion dressing (Jeff won't eat the salad I make, so it will be a good opportunity for him to finish his leftover lo mein so I won't pick at it anymore )
  • fudgesicle
Should be about 1300-1350 calories total

I need to either buy or make some hummus sometime soon. I have tons of cut up veggies and not much protein like sources to eat them with (other than my laughing cow cheese wedge).

Yesterday was the following:
protein shake (2 strawberries, protein powder, water)
2 protein shakes (protein powder and water)
Banana
apricot
1/2 cup lf cottage cheese, 2 strawberries
1/2 cup rice, 4-5 oz grilled chicken, tomato
1 steak burrito (5-6oz grilled steak, tomatoes, guacamole, tortilla, salsa)
10 tortilla chips, lots of salsa

I was so hungry yesterday, but tom is soon so I that is probably why. I am adding more protein shakes to my diet because they are easy and low calorie. I am also adding fish oil tablets to supplement my healthy fats as I switch to more protein shakes.

Looks as though everyone is off to a great start for the week.

Welcome to the thread, Helen! Jill's right on the mark about your healthy eating. I'm going to crib some of your ideas, (hope you don't mind) starting today with a chickpea omelette.


Today's plan:
  • Weat bran cereal, skimmed milk.
  • Cottage cheese, Ryvitas, raw veggies.
  • Chick pea omelette, salad.
  • Apple.

Ali way to loose the weight congrats....

Yeah I feel like I need to eat much more healthy. I have not been doing too bad with the healthy stuff though. I am doing really well on exersise though. Water aerobics with lap swim before this morning all ready (I usually do this at night but schedule worked out better for this morning today) also plan a 5 mile walk with kids today (DS will ride his bike) and I tried the Carmen Electra Aerobic Stripping yesterday was good for toning so I think I will probably do that one tonight again when no one is watching. It would be a little otherwise.

1 egg + 1 egg white omelet with mushrooms, onions, green chilies, bacon bits, fresh tomato a little bit of cheese in a tortilla ww 4 pt
2 C coffe, hot cocoa, creamer, sugar free carmel torani ww 2 pt
1 quart water

48 pretzel sticks ww 2 pt
roast Beef sandwich 4" ww 8 pt
spinach broccoli salad ww 0 pt
fruit ww 1 pt
1 quart water
1 quart water

2 C progresso soup ww 4 pt

totals ww 21 pt
water 3 quarts

I've stuck to my plan all day, and I haven't had the extra snack yet which I think will be muesli and yoghurt later this evening. I ended up having 2 apples and no plums because the plums had gone bad.

Tomorrow's plan:

Fruity porridge
Cous cous salad with chickpeas, apricots and prunes
Egg ribbons with cumin rice, with asparagus, green beans and possibly some other veg on the side.
2 or 3 apples
500ml lucozade sport during my run (calories burned off due to the fact the run is 7 miles...)
I'm thinking that there is room for one or two more snacks in there, but I haven't decided what yet. I'll have to look what I have in the kitchen.

Bear with this Yank, but how does one make a chickpea omelet? Are whole chickpeas the filling? Or do you mush them up and add them to the eggs and then use something else as the filling?

Thanks! I'm under no illusion though. A goodly chunk of that'll be water. Still, it's just the boost I needed to get going again.
midwife: I don't know what Helen does, but I just threw a quarter cup of chick peas in a one egg omelette, with cardamom, coriander, fennel, ginger, and mint. Delicious! I'll use the remainder in a veggie tagine (apricots, aubergine, carrots, onion, pine nuts, sweet potato, and tomatoes, flavoured with chilli, coriander, cumin, honey, and paprika) today.

I ate my menu for yesterday, but swapped out the apple for a generous portion of full-fat, full-sugar ice cream. Oops! Lovely treat though. It seems the half bottle of wine I had wasn't on the plan either.


Today's plan:
  • Weat bran cereal, skimmed milk.
  • Cottage cheese, salad.
  • Natural peanut butter on Ryvitas.
  • Chick pea and vegetable tagine, whole-wheat couscous.
  • Apple.

I just throw whole chickpeas in too. I mix some tomatoes and herbs or spices into the egg mixture, pour it in the pan, then sprinkle the chickpeas over the top. It works with all sorts of beans too

Today is going to plan, I had my "during the day" snack, I'm just cooking my evening meal and I've got enough space for an evening snack if I need one (not sure if I will though). Tomorrow's food is going to be pretty similar to today's, but I'll post it once I've worked out the details.

Yesterday, I skipped the oatmeal and yogurt but ended up making pizza for dinner instead of salad (whole-wheat Boboli crust, no-salt sauce, fat-free mozzarella, reduced-fat Italian cheese w/sun dried tomato and basil, and turkey pepperoni). I probably ended up with way more calories thanks to the cheese (I LOVE cheese, so of course made the pizza extra cheesy

Today has been like this so far:
).
  • TJ's cereal w/skim milk, banana, and strawberries
  • 2 fudgesicles
  • ham and swiss on 12-grain bread
  • cup of chili w/a little shredded cheddar cheese on top
I got the sandwich and chili at the cafeteria in my office building (forgot my lunch--oops! ), so I'm not sure of the exact calorie counts, but I'm sure it's entirely too much As for the 2 fudgesicles at 6:00 this morning, can you tell what time of month it is for me? Dinner will be salad topped with chicken breast to try to minimize today's earlier damage, and I'm sure I'll have another fudgesicle (or 2) this evening--thank goodness they're only 40 calories each!

I've had my evening snack after all, muesli and fat free yoghurt again.

Tomorrow is almost exactly the same as today:

Fruity porridge
2 apples, 1 pomegranate
Cous cous salad
Egg ribbons with cumin rice and asparagus and green beans
20g Green and Black's Maya Gold
And probably a little muesli when I get in from my Spanish class
