Default What's on your menu?

Thought it would be fun to share our menus, if anyone is interested. It kept me honest back in the summer.

Today:
Breakfast - 1/2 cup Eggbeaters, scrambled, with mushrooms and red, green, and yellow peppers sauteed in a little olive oil, 8 oz. tomato juice
Snack - almonds
Lunch - eggplant baked with diced tomatoes, fresh spinach that had been sauteed with garlic, ricotta mixed with an egg, basil, and sprinkled cheeses (mozzarella, provolone, parmesan, romano, and asiago) (made this for the family's dinner but I had to be out of the house this afternoon and evening so I had it for lunch)
Dinner - avocado wraps (smushed up avocado mixed with garlic and minced onion with sliced cherry tomatoes, wrapped in romaine leaves), red pepper strips, and a string cheese
Dessert - bean brownie and a mug of NSA hot chocolate with a dollop of fat free Cool Whip

I also got in 72 ounces of water throughout the day.

I was just getting ready to post this in the other thread. I find it really helps me to plan all my dinners for the week, and then each morning to take a few minutes and plan out the day. Then I can go on autopilot.

B - Scrambled eggs and tomatoes, turkey bacon, V8
S - peanut butter celery and carrots
L - open faced turkey meatloaf sandwich, salad
S - clementine and a latte
D - Chicken Stir Fry
S - Ricotta creme

Why does thinking about food make me so happy?

Here's mine, since I am having trouble in the opposite direction now maybe someone can make some suggestions! If you missed my daily I am still dropping the pounds despite trying to maintain.

Breakfast: Oatmeal cooked with cinn, add a packet of splenda, peanut butter and sugar free maple syrup.

Snack: Banana

Lunch: Much like Kara, left over Veggie Lasagna made with eggplant, spinach, brocc, turkey sasuage, cottage cheese, mozz and parm cheese.

Snack: Dannon Light and Fit Yogurt, and a Kashi Trail mix granola bar.

Dinner: Thinking maybe Pork Tenderloin and a huge helping of Veggies.

Snack: Probably SF hot drink of some sort.

Cat, I bought some of that bread at Thanksgiving and put it out to go with the salmon spread - yum! We had some left so for a week I had a tiny little sandwich for lunch every day, so cute.

Well the burritos turned into a casserole (so much easier to create and eat than individual burritos) with a filling of spinach, black beans and taco mix layered between burritos and covered with lf cheddar and my favorite salsa. It was a hit and there is enough leftover for both of us to have it again for lunch tomorrow. I love leftovers

Love, actually, the Kashi bars aren't really SBD approved - too much sugar. But I adore the Pumpkin Spice one, and save it for an occasional treat. I really don't know of any granola bars that are compatable with SBD, except for the SBD cereal and snack bars that are made by Kraft. Even so, they're not exactly 100% compatable for followers of the SB diet, either. You have to use your own judgement, and see how they affect you.
