Meal Plans

Here is my "go to" menu right now.  I'll add more as I find more favorites, but for now I am very happy with these meal choices…

Breakfast Ideas:

  • Scrambled eggs in tsp. butter topped w/shredded cheddar cheese
  • Old Fashion Oatmeal mixed w/cinnamon, stevia-based sweetener, and topped w/frozen blueberries & cottage cheese whipped together in the blender
  • Bacon and Shredded Cheddar wrap using a low carb tortilla or Joseph's Lavash

Lunch Ideas:

  • Tuna mixed with 1/2 TBS Mayo and mustard to taste on Joseph' Lavash
  • Fajita chicken w/salad greens plus creamy Ranch dressing (sugar should be less than 5g in dressing) and real bacon bits
  • Deli turkey, bacon and Monterey Jack cheese slice w/ mayo or ranch on low carb tortilla or Joseph's Lavash
  • Leftovers from dinner (lately there haven't been any at my house)

Snack Ideas:

  • Greek yogurt mixed with Polaner All Fruit Jam w/Fiber
  • Handful of roasted nuts (almond or peanuts are my favorite)
  • Smoothie (See Recipe section for different ideas)
  • Apple slices and cinnamon dip (see Recipe section)

Dinner Ideas:

  • Pita Pizzas using Joseph's Pitas and topped with sugar free pizza sauce, plus shredded mozzarella cheese and favorite toppings (I like spicy sausage, turkey pepperoni, and mushrooms)
  • Baked or Pressure-cooked Chicken thighs w/broccoli (topped w/butter and shredded cheddar cheese)
  • Taco Rice (see Recipe section)
  • Fried Salmon Patties w/ broccoli (topped w/butter and shredded cheddar cheese of course!)
  • White Bean Chili Soup w/toasted low carb tortilla broken into cracker sized pieces
  • Cooked Chicken breasts w/cauli-rice
  • Bunless Burgers!!!  Make your favorite cheese burger and just leave off the bun.  This is a great choice for eating out too.  Most restaurants have no problem leaving off the bun - add a side of steamed veggies and you've got an easy option for eating out.

Dessert Ideas:

  • Cheesecake w/crushed almond crust (THM Recipe)
  • Cheesecake Berry Crunch (THM Recipe)
  • Cake in a Mug (THM Recipe) topped with Bryers Low Carb Chocolate Ice Cream
  • Skinny Chocolate (THM Recipe)

I've removed all my old meal plans because while they were "healthy" for the most part, they no longer fit into my eating style.  From here on out, I'm separating carbs from fat!  Meal choices are so much easier - I'm just following these simple guidelines:

Protein + Fat (Max 10g NET CARBS)
Protein + Carb (Max 5g fat)

Avoid sugar of any kind - white, brown, agave, maple syrup, honey, sugar in the raw, etc.

Avoid bread (including wheat bread), pasta, white rice, white potatoes or starchy veggies while trying to lose weight.  Once goal is achieved or if weight loss is occurring too rapidly, add in healthy carbs.  But for now, keep 'em separate!!

Eat every 3 hours - for me that's 8am/11am/2pm/5pm/8pm
