Default Daily menus - week of 4/16

I know it's Sunday night, but I'm in high gear, so I'll take advantage and start planning for tomorrow now

I went through all my custom foods in my Fitday and deleted all items I no longer use on a regular basis. I had things in there from when i first started like spaghetti o's and canned mac n cheese that I wouldn't even dream of eating now I also made a custom meal for my Mexican lunch (as opposed to entering every ingredient separately, as I had been doing for a while). I've decided that for me, that Jillpotle is pretty much the perfect meal. It's a lot of calories (about 600), so I wouldn't necessarily have it every day if I could only have 1200 a day, but for now, it's FANTASTIC! Not only is it super filling and delicious, but it's also got 51g protein and is split up into 20% fat, 36% protein, and 44% carbs, plus 15g fiber! It doesn't get much better than that for me

So anyway, I made 10 helpings of Jillpotle today and have them all sorted in the fridge, so no excuses for me of Jeff to not have a healthy lunch this week!

Tomorrow's shaping up as follows:
  • Kashi granola bar
  • Kashi instant oatmeal
  • Lean Cuisine - rosemary chicken
  • Jillpotle
  • orange
  • 2 turkey burgers (w/cheese and bacon) on wheat buns
  • 100-calorie ice cream bar (probably won't buy these again since I just noticed they have HFCS)

haha, nonono...it's the name for this meal that my boyfriend came up with since it's based on a meal I had at Chipotle (Jill + Chipotle = Jillpotle ). It's brown rice, black beans, chopped chicken breast, fat free shredded cheddar cheese, guacamole (made at home with fresh avocadoes and some added fat free sour cream), choped romaine lettuce, and fresh salsa. It's just easier to write "Jillpotle" in my menus than to write it all out every time

Jill,

Thats cute.
I have names for my home cooked foods too.

Do you remember the ground up balony sandwhiches we ate years ago?

my kids call it MONKEY MEAT!
Some real old lady at the grocery store gave us that name.

Last night I broke my week long meatless meals. Part of the problem is I have some frozen prepped meals in the freezer and I need to finish those before I can completely go off meat. I did enjoy my shrimp though I also plan to eventually go completely off dairy but for now, I have tons of Whey protein powder so I'm limiting my dairy to that.

So for today -
- Ultimate meal/protein shake
- 3/4 cup of grape tomatoes (from the farmers market, oh so good)
- 1 apple
- Shrimp/artichoke hearts/tomatoes over a bed of mustard greens
- 1 cup of carrot slices
- Broccoli soup

I'm not exactly sure about dinner, I put broccoli soup as tentative but we'll see. I've been less hungry at dinner these days.

nelie, are you trying to go vegetarian or vegan? I may have missed it somewhere along the line, but I'm just curious as to why you're trying to go meat- and dairy-less.

Jill - I'm just playing with my diet a little. I wanted to see what would happen if I cut out meat and dairy. I've played with this a little over the past couple years. It is more of a thing to see how I would deal with my own diet if I didn't eat meat and/or didn't eat dairy. Its kind of like the opposite of Iron Chef for me. What do you eat/make if meat and dairy isn't an option?

I COMPLETELY forgot yesterday while I was planning my menu that it was Jeff's birthday (no, I dodn't forget entirely, just while I was planning in the wee hours of the morning ). So, I stuck to plan all day, but then instead of dinner at home, we went out to one of his favorite restaurants where I had grilled crab cakes and mashed potatoes. I almost ordered an entree salad, but the weather was SO crappy (I cannot BELIEVE the wind!) that I really needed something warm. And, of course, his favorite is ice cream cake, so I got the tiniest one I could get from the Carvel freezer at the grocery store--and actually stuck 25 candles in it

And so, I'll be having what I'd originally planned for yesterday today (which makes it easy because I can just copy and paste ).
  • Kashi granola bar
  • Kashi instant oatmeal
  • Lean Cuisine - rosemary chicken
  • Jillpotle
  • orange
  • 2 turkey burgers (w/cheese and bacon) on wheat buns
  • 100-calorie ice cream bar (probably won't buy these again since I just noticed they have HFCS)

Today is the following:

Ultimate meal/protein shake
Apple with some cereal flakes
Broccoli/bean soup
2 pickles
1 cup of carrot sticks
3/4 cup of grape tomatoes
Bean burger patty over a bed of spinach with broccoli (kind of undecided here)
An orange

Speaking of birthdays... my birthday is in a month which also coincides (a few days apart) with our 6 month wedding anniversary. I made reservations yesterday for Morton's just so we have something planned Although today I was daydreaming about the desserts at Buca... I did give DH a few options and let him choose.
