Menu Plan Monday

This is my first week of doing a Menu Plan Monday. In keeping with my new goals of losing 40lbs by my 40th birthday, being more organized and trying to keep better track of our finances, I figured this is a good way to roll all three of those in one.

Monday: Oven-roasted chicken, baked potato, veggies (to make it more healthy I will peel off the skin before I put it in the oven....that is big step for me, since we all know the "skin" is the best part!)

Tuesday: Sandwiches, soup (use left over chicken for sandwiches)

Wednesday: Spiral ham, sweet potato, veggies (I never used this ham at Christmas, so it has to be cooked but I will not make the glaze that comes with it)

Thursday: French Toast, cut-up fruit, turkey bacon or turkey breakfast sausage ( who doesn't love "night breakfast"??, I will use Weight Watchers Multigrain bread and egg substitute to make french toast)

Friday: Hot dogs & Hamburgers , french fries, cut-up veggies ( my 9yr old and I will eat the Healthy Ones hot dogs , only 2pts on WW , and my 16yr old and hubby eat the hamburgers, french fries are always baked in the oven)

Saturday: Homemade pizza , salad ( I want to try to find an alternative crust that is healthier, if not I will make a separate pizza for myself on an english muffin)

Sunday: Tacos , salad ( I don't use the taco shells that come with the kit, I use Baked Tostitos to have mine. I make it like a Taco Salad and I also use WW shredded cheese)

Oh, I love making pizzas on flour tortillas or using whole wheat pita pockets. Way less calories!

When at all possible cut out the bread and eat more veggies. For instance, when you are doing hot dog night. I would eat 1-2 hot dogs, no bun, and because you skipped the bun you can have more baked fries. (Which are better for you anyway than the enriched flour.)

The chicken is fine. I do that all the time too. I just try to eat mostly white meat. But the dark stuff won't side track you too bad as long as you eat veggies with it to fill yourself up.

I love english muffin pizzas. I used to do those all the time. On your french toast day, put the syrup in a ramekin to control the portion you give yourself.

XXOO Good job!
