Our Meal Plan ~ March 9th-15th

meal plan main collage (1)

I’ve been doing pretty good with my healthy eating. I lost another 1.2 pounds for a total of 9 POUNDS! I am so excited and feel great. I love the feeling of being in control of food and eating healthy food that doesn’t make me sick. Plus cutting out those modified foods, processed foods, and switching tomatoes for tomato sauce has made me feel better. 

So now onto our meals for last week. I was recently asked why I post meals that are a week behind. Though it would be easier to list our meal plan for the current week, I prefer to show you what our meal plan was last week, how the meals went, and if Dino approved. I also like to show our lunches and how we are sticking to a plan and eating healthy.

Friday – Pasta, Broccoli and cauliflower (forgot to take a pic…it was just SO GOOD!)

Saturday – I was alone Saturday night…it was glorious. I had a beautiful lunch with my sister at the EverReady Diner. I got the BIG APPLE WRAP. I wish I had taken a pic, it was delicious and yummy. I ate half at the diner and half for dinner. 



Between using EasyLunchBoxes  and planning what I eat ahead of time, I am in control at work and I know Dino is eating healthy at school.

Mommy-(eating on my own. Daddy was camping and Dino was with my parents, LaLa and PopPop) I met my sister for lunch at the Eveready Diner and had an awesome meal. I had the “Big Apple Wrap.” It was a spinach wrap with apples, chicken breast, pecans, cranberries, blue cheese, and honey mustard vinaigrette. Can you say DELICIOUS? It was so big that I ate half there and saved the other half for dinner.

  1. Congratulations on the weight loss, Karen. So motivating to see the scale go down:) That wrap at the end sounds DELICIOUS. That’s great that Dino will eat so many healthy things – lucky!
