Default What's on your menu? Week of 2/11 - 2/17

I came to post my menu, but I didn't see a thread for this week, so I started one--hope I didn't step on anyone's toes

The plan for today (I'm doing Phase 1):
  • V8, 2 egg muffins (maybe mini quiches is a more accurate description? they have egg, spinach, onion, bacon, turkey sausage, and cheese)
  • egg salad
  • salad - romaine, baby spinach, chicken, sliced almonds, and Asian sesame dressing (homemade, no sugar)
  • turkey sausage patties with wedge French onion Laughing Cow light
  • dinner is TBD--friends are visiting, so we'll likely go out, in which case I'll get either steak or chicken and veggies, and avoid the bread basket!
  • string cheese (if I need it after dinner)

Hi girls! Just wanted to say this diet is GREAT! I dropped below 180 this week and I had to get off the scale, and then get back on because I didn't believe it!! I stood there in shock!! I've been on SB for 4 weeks now and I'm down 18 lbs. That seems like a lot to me, but I'm definitely eating enough and I've added in fruits and grains, so I won't complain! Anyway, here's my meal for today!

B: Slim Fast Low Carb Chocolate Shake
S: Mozz stick
L: FF Turkey, lettuce and cheese in WW tortilla, triscuits, yogurt, SF pepp patty
D: Taco Soup
S: SF pudding

I did okay yesterday. I stuck to my planned food during the day, and then we went out for dinner, and I had grilled pork chops with mashed cauliflower and a side caesar salad (no croutons). I successfully ignored the bread and the Tex Mex Eggroll appetizer (one of my favorites!).

On to today:
  • V8, 2 mini quiches
  • turkey sausage patties with French onion Laughing Cow light wedge
  • 2 grilled fish fillets with tartar sauce (homemade from soy mayo and NSA sweet relish)
  • egg salad
  • thin sliced chicken breast marinated in bbq sauce (I have a new bbq sauce recipe to try tonight), topped with center cut bacon and thin sliced Swiss cheese, served over mashed cauliflower

Hey Jill, I think you are only supposed to have the turkey sausage a max of once per week, so you might want to watch that. I love the stuff and could eat it all the time!

B - WW tortilla with turkey bacon, lf cheddar, scrambled eggs, green peppers and salsa
S - gigantic chunk of raw cauliflower
L - Salad - romaine and shrimp
S - celery w/ laughing cow light
D - turkey sausage, mozzarella, & marinara WW pasta
S - SF jello

Thank you for pointing that out! You're absolutely right that that's what the book says. I don't understand why, though, since the turkey sausage I buy only has .5g saturated fat more per serving than a single egg (and I never eat just 1 egg at a time)! I don't think it's because of the sodium since things like lunchmeat, cheese, and cottage cheese aren't limited (all high in sodium--and lord knows I'm drinking plenty of water!). If anyone knows of a good reason not to have turkey sausage more than once a week (other than "the book says so" ), that would be helpful information for me. But, I'm still feeling good and losing weight, and it's one of the meals I look forward to every day. We can have other turkey products every day (turkey bacon, turkey burgers, etc.), so I guess I let my common sense take over

I'm not trying to be argumentative or difficult--I just really don't understand why it should only be once a week I don't have any other food here at the office, though, so I'll probably end up eating it today again anyway. I'll save it for my last meal at the office so if I'm not too hungry, I can skip it and have something else when I get home.

Also, though, on the topic of my menu, I don't see many veggies today. I'll have to add broccoli florets as a snack after dinner, maybe. Then I'll have the V8, the cauliflower, a bit of spinach and onions in my quiches, and the broccoli. Still not 4.5 cups, but I'm getting there! It's hard for me to reach without a salad, but I'm out of both lettuce and salad dressing, so I'll have to make more dressings tonight and stop at the store on my way home
