I’ve been doing pretty good with my healthy eating. I didn’t lose this week, but I didn’t gain either. Between me and Dino getting sick this week, I was too stressed and didn’t lose. I thought I would have lost, but oh well. Last week’s meals didn’t go as planned, but it all worked out in the end.
Sun dinner at in-laws for niece’s birthday
Mon Dinner slow cooker honey garlic chicken, rice, and cauliflower and carrots http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Honey-Garlic-Slow-Cooker-Chicken-Thighs/Detail.aspx
Tues Dinner slow cooker meatball subs with veggies
Wed Dinner potato gnocchi, butternut squash, cheese, tomato and almond puree,
Thurs Dinner leftovers
Fri Dinner chicken and roasted potatoes with green beans
Sat rice and beans, bean and tomato puree sauce, onions, broccoli, spinach
Sunday – Even though dinner was going to be provided I still brought my own pasta with beans and veggies. This is still processed pasta, two days later I bought gluten free. I did have a bit of salmon at the party, but think I was already sick with a stomach virus
Monday – Was the worst day for me as I was sick with stomach bug. I don’t know how but I seasoned the chicken and baked it in a cast iron skillet. I baked the veggies in a separate skillet and boiled the rice. I tried to eat that night, but it was too difficult.
Tuesday– Dino and I had the leftover chicken, rice, and veggies for dinner. I felt so much better and what a a great meal it was. I truly enjoyed it. I even cut some up and used them for sandwiches the next day.
Wednesday – I baked butternut squash and tomatoes in the oven (with LOTS of spices). Then I purred the contents with almond milk and water. Then I poured it back into the cast iron skillet and sauteed it for a bit. It was healthy and delicious over the gnochi. Dino ate every bite.
Thursday – Slow Cooker Steak, rice, and veggies I TOTALLY FORGOT to set up the slow cooker with the steak. I realized this as I drove into the parking lot at work. I could have asked hubby, but it’s just easier to do it for the next day. So we had leftover gnochi and pork casserole and Italian bread pizza.
Friday – Picked up Dino from daycare only to discover that he just threw up and then again as soon as we walked out the door. Other kids were out sick for the stomach bug, so it was just a matter of time before Dino got it. I just had leftover gnochi and sauce in between caring for Dino.
Saturday – Cut up and sauteed fresh cilantro, dill, and onion then added the marinating chicken. I let roasted chicken on both sides then placed cover on, and put in oven. I baked the chicken and veggies at 350 for about 30 mins. At the same time I seasoned and baked potatoes and sweet potatoes in a covered cast iron skillet as well. I swear I will never use pans again.
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-obviously I DID not eat any of my lunch that day, but also got rid of the pitas, since they were whole wheat.
