Default On-Plan Support, 9/6 - 9/12

It's time for a new week of talking On-Plan! This is the place for South Beach meal plan and food support, encouragement and questions.

Anyone, from any phase (1, 1.5, 2, 3, etc.) can post, and those who are new to 3FC are especially encouraged to do so!
This thread is for questions, sharing advice and strategies, and encouraging each other to stay on plan. It is not for chatting about daily life unrelated to this topic. Members have indicated that they would like to have chatting remain in the Daily Thread, so any posts that are off topic or chatty will be moved by the mods to the Daily.

Because people from different parts of the plan are posting here, it'll help everyone if you indicate what phase you're in when you post. Thanks!
While you may certainly find, from time to time, the need to ask for help after going off plan, remember that this thread is about staying on plan. When you share details of off plan foods you've eaten, it can upset, tempt, and otherwise frustrate other members, so please keep these details to a minimum.

So, share with us: How are you staying on plan this week?

Today will be challenging. In transit and with friends who never have to think about what they eat...

Phase 1, Day 8

B - coffee with almond milk, chocolate cheesecake smoothie (with yogurt & lf cream cheese) with protein powder
L - taco salad with refried beans, melted lf cheese, Romaine lettuce, salsa, and 1/4 avocado
Ss - raw broccoli and orange pepper slices w/ hummus, celery with Laughing Cow light, raw almonds (I'm bringing these with me)
D - the ultimate challenge. I'll bring veggie sausages in case we will be grilling (I can hope). If someone chooses a restaurant, I'm in trouble, but I'll do what I can. In fact, I've just decided I'm going to bring even more snacks so maybe I can get out of the group dinner altogether....

Well, yesterday was interesting. I ate way less than I had planned, but it was OK. When I finally had a chance to eat my snack of pepper strips and broccoli with spicy hummus - omg, it was the best thing ever! I had also packed dried green beans, almonds and celery sticks and Laughing Cow light (didn't get to eat that as I didn't think ahead about the difficulty of spreading the cheese on the go ... next time I'll pack them pre-made) Yay, I have to remember to always bring snacks! I have a small insulated lunch bag and I threw in a small ice pack and crammed the whole thing in my backpack. Perfect!

Phase 1, Day 9. I've been in love with my food recently so I am keeping things almost the same today

B - coffee with us almond milk
walk, yoga class
chocolate "berry" smoothie (with plain yogurt, soy protein powder, wild berry Crystal Light and cocoa powder) = so good!!
L - taco salad with refried beans, melted lf cheese, Romaine lettuce, salsa, and 1/4 avocado, decaf brewed iced tea
S1 - raw broccoli and orange pepper slices w/ spicy hummus
S2 - celery with Laughing Cow light, Tofurkey slices with light cream cheese and arugula
D - zucchini "lasagna" with spinach/broccoli/ricotta/pesto/tomato sauce, fresh green beans sauteed with walnuts/thyme/meyer lemon

We're going on a little vacation this weekend, so I'm busily trying to figure out snacks to bring along. I'm going to pack the soft sided cooler with stuff. I figure cut veggies, dried fruit, hummus, almonds and walnuts, cheese sticks, hard boiled eggs.

At least the hotel has a gym. I'm going to bring my running shoes and plan to get in at least a few miles both Friday and Saturday morning. I'm planning one off plan meal at an outrageously good tex-mex joint and that will warrant the running.

-
1: greek yogurt, flax, walnuts
2: edamame, tomatoes, green peppers, onions, yellow squash saute
3: cut veg and hummus
4: chicken with 40 cloves, mashed cauliflower, salad

I had to make a special trip to find the noodles, so I stocked up. I went to a giant mainstream store and found them in the "weird" vegetarian products section (I say "weird" as someone who buys these things routinely).

The creamed spinach is just 1/2 cup frozen spinach with 2 wedges of Laughing Cow light, heated until the cheese melts. I don't cook & drain the spinach first, as the liquid improves the consistency. I love this! My husband does, too, when I have served it as a side dish. He has no idea it's so low-cal.

Emma, that spinach sounds excellent. I think I'll give it a try this morning. I have some of the chipotle laughing cow right now too.

traveling today. most meals are going to be on the road.

1: chocolate cheesecake smoothie
2: veggie whole wheat pita (ww pita stuffed with lettuce, tomatoes, broccoli, carrots and hummus) -- pretty decent for a quick lunch. i love that restaurant.
3: snacks on the road - brought cut veggies, laughing cow wedges, hummus and dried apples
4: i have no idea what we're having for dinner. i'm going to stick with lean protein and vegetables wherever we go - since we'll be in new orleans, i want to go seafood.
