Breakfast fruit smoothie w raspberry, almond butter, flax, almond milk, spinach, lemon. Or a metrx protein smoothie
Lunch : oh yeah protein bar
Dinner morning star burger.


I need to get more creative. I bought I binder last week to keep a list of dinners etc so I think I'll add some other healthy quick ideas from all your great suggestions.
I hear you on the cooking and cleaning. I hate them both myself.... but have resigned myself to the daily chore, as we like to eat and I like us to eat HEALTHY! That being said, I/we don't eat fancy or gourmet and I dirty as few bowls and pots and pans as possible when I make a meal, so I have a large variety of grill meals as well as one-pot meals and crockpot dishes in my binder! I also give myself the "okay" to buy some more convenient foods even when they are most expensive (like prewashed salad greens and ready-to-cook fresh green beans). And I also try to double up and triple up on some meals and put the extras in the freezer for another day.... that way I do the majority of the mess and clean-up all at once!

If you are content with your current food choices and they are healthy and allowing you to lose the weight you want, I don't see any reason for a big change. But if you are bored or don't like the foods or if they are unhealthy or causing weight gain, then obviously it is time to try some new stuff!!

That soup has DEFINITELY become a family favorite!! I am eternally grateful to you for sharing it, as that is the ONLY WAY that my DS will eat a carrot!! He actually requests the soup if I haven't made it in a while. I will be adding it to next week's menu if the weather continues to cool off!

Have to say that there really is an abundance of ideas over on the healthy meal planning thread! Definitely something for everyone there

Thanks for saying that! I know that meal plan is a HUGE struggle for so many of us!!

I feel so much more in control this week than I have done all year to be honest-fingers crossed the scales reflect this tomorrow!

Good luck with your weigh-ins everyone!
Gotta love that "in control" feeling!! Isn't is the BEST?? Prayers and PD that the scale reflects all of your good choices!


Morning all! CHange of schedule.... they called and said they did NOT need me today at school! I would have liked the $$, but will enjoy my day off as well. Got my (hopefully) last coat of paint on my range this morning. I will let it sit overnight to get good and dry and cured and we will probably attempt to bring it back into the house tomorrow morning. Meanwhile I need to remove my range hood and get started on degreasing it to paint.

Also did another coat of paint on the bookcase I am fixing up to bring DD at school. She called a while ago and said that her desk isn't large enough to hold all of her books, binders, and her laptop. She has a small upright bookcase next to her bed, but it is already full of her favorite paperbacks and "ocean" related books. So I started searching for one just the right size to fit UNDER her bed (it is a high bed but not a bunk) with shelves high enough for a full binder and found one at the GW for just $2.69 (after my discount)!! I bought it home, sanded it, filled a few scratches and dings and I am painting it white to match the other bookcase she has. Thankfully she wanted white, as that was the color spray paint I already had on hand!! I'll bring it to her later this month when I go visit to hear a speaker that is coming to her school.

DH is away tonight and it is yogurt parfait night on our menu, so no big meal to cook tonight.... which also means no DISHES!! Since DH will be away, I'll probably let DS cook himself a pizza instead of having yogurt.

I tried a new smoothie recipe yesterday that I had found on Pinterest. I am not sure if it is going to make it into the "regular" line-up... I need to try it again and make a few changes before I decide. It was a pumpkin banana smoothie and it was quite filling for few points, but so far I'm not in LOVE with it. Maybe a few changes will help. I'll share the original recipe and my changes after I try it again.

Off to do another coat of spray paint!..................P
