Today’s meal plan is great for those of us who are trying to lose weight: low on calories, high on protein.
I just love starting my day off with a healthy oatmeal breakfast. I don’t always have the time to make it, but when I do… oohlahlah… it’s heaven in a bowl!
Since I have to work on Mondays (who doesn’t?) I planned and packed my snacks and lunch yesterday evening (please note that this is an exception, I usually wake up on Monday mornings, feel stressed out, ‘forget’ to pack lunch and end up spending too much money on lunch and not-so-healthy snacks at the office). I have a fridge full of carrots and hummus, measured, packed and ready to throw in my bag for the next few days. I just added fruit and nuts for a morning snack. I forgot who nice it feels not to have to think about food early morning and just throw a bunch of stuff in my bag before work. I really should pack my food on Sundays more often.
Dinner was just quick and easy. Not very culinary I’m afraid. I cooked for one today and didn’t have much time, so I didn’t really make an effort. I planned to go carb-less for dinner, but ended up eating my half-a-sandwich with peanut butter — which I had planned to eat at the office — after work. Which was a good thing since I don’t normally do well on just protein and veggies for dinner…
Side note: the only thing not in the picture is the glass of milk I’m about to have as my pre-bedtime snack.
