Weight Loss Support - Planning for Thursday, Nov. 30
11-30-2006, 07:15 AM
grr...completely blew it agian yesterday, so let's try this yet again...
I've already done 25 minutes of WATP this morning, and here's my food plan (I need to go grocery shopping REALLY badly):
Lean Cuisine - honey dijon chicken (3rd day in a row this has been on my menu--maybe I'll actually eat it this time!)
chicken cooked w/bell peppers, corn, diced tomatoes, black beans, spices, and a splash of chicken broth (I was out of salsa and didn't have any onions, so hopefully the aforementioned tomatoes and peppers with a splash of chile pepper flavored oil and dried onion flakes will be kinda similar), served over whole-wheat couscous and topped with shredded cheddar cheese
We MUST go grocery shopping tonight. I'll have to remember to take a few minutes today to check the online grocery ads to see if anyone has a good sale on chicken this week, as I'm about out!

just a minute .....
I'm back to cut and paste my lunch bucket (actually it's a plastic shopping bag)
In my bag, I've packed pineapple, cc, protein pancakes, ww crackers ... at work I can get individual packets of peanutbutter (portion control). I'm having trouble with the math but I think that's four mini-meals ... I'll have a bathtub full of greens for supper and I'm not sure what protein, but I'd better bump up the veggies.

porridge with egg and honey
Protein pancakes and an apple
turkey and hummus
Total 0% greek yoghurt
Dinner... :chin: Maybe sausages I bought some as a treat at the weekend... :devil:

Breakfast: porage (whole oat groats), berries, almonds, wheatgerm, cc, skimmed milk. (2F, I'm a bodybuilder! I need my protein! ;) CC is a perfect low-fat choice!)
Snack: apple and cc
Dinner: bacon and lentil soup, homemade wholemeal bread, banana
Snack: apple and cc (it works for me!)
Tea: turbot, apple and mushroom sauce with a bit of creme fraiche, brown rice or potatoes, greens (probably cabbage), carrots

How does the CC go in porridge? Does it just melt? Do you whip it up or what? I still don't think I'd have it with shredded wheat... Although I do like it on Ryvitas :T

It doesn't really melt. It's just there, cottage-cheese-like. You can mix it in. You can choose whether to eat it with the berries, or with the oats, or with both. It's good. :yes: And it's the same with Shredded Wheat. And as you're eating it, you think: 'I am such a healthy bodybuilder. Good for me. I will succeed today' or other uplifting thoughts. IMHO. (Um, that uplifting bit doesn't always work. :o )
I know we're all different. :lol:

Silverbirch, I'm not sure about CC and shredded wheat, but that apple and mushroom sauce with a bit of creme fraiche sure does sound good! Wish my SO would eat mushrooms. Hmmm, maybe I could make it for lunch one day.

S - coffee or tea with sweet-n-low and soy milk, apple or English muffin depending on how hungry I am
L - brown rice, butternut squash, laughing cow cheese wedge, and chicken; tomato, cucumber, raspberry, and basil salad with balsamic vinegar
S - blueberry fiber cake with NF cream cheese
S - NF yogurt with raspberries
D - Sausage and chard cassoulet, green salad
