I was doing so well last week. I felt I was over the hump and on track, then came Friday. I had great intentions. My chicken and vegetables were in the oven heating up as I got my boys their dinner before baseball and I was finishing up preparing my DIY Make & Take Class. Everything was on track, then I forgot about my chicken. Note to self…always use a timer. I cooked the chicken too much and I just couldn’t eat it. I was walking out the door and I had to eat something and my kids leftovers were on the counter. I gobbled it down like it was Christmas dinner. Then I said, to hell with I might as well have a glass of wine. Not my best decision. Then came Saturday, it was GNO. I couldn’t go out and NOT have wine. I’ll just say I had more than a glass of wine. We will leave it at that. Yesterday I wasn’t feeling so hot, wonder why? I did well on the grains but had cheese and no wine. So my motto is….TODAY IS A BRAND NEW DAY! I am back on track!
Wondering how my family is doing while I’m on this Whole30 Challenge? They are fine, not having any issues with the meals I’ve been making because I am modifying my meal not theirs. There are so many great recipe choices out there. My friend over at No Sleep Till College gave me some great ideas for this week that I will be trying out for the first. Wish me luck!
Real Food Menu Plan – Whole30 Approved Week 3
Monday: It’s just plain yucky here in the Philadelphia today so I am making a new soup – Golden Cauliflower Soup served with chicken Caesar salad. I will modify my salad to make it Whole30 friendly.
Tuesday: I have a friend in town so my boys and I will be having dinner with her family. Hoping to stay on track this day!
Wednesday: We have busy night of practices so dinner needs to be early and quick. Making Paleo style chicken fingers (minus the Parmesan cheese) with sweet potato fries and raw veggies.
Thursday: Trying out this new Garlic & Herb Crusted Beef Roast recipe with some roasted vegetables and sweet potatoes.
Friday: Another new soup - Curried Broccoli Soup with leftover Beef Roast
Saturday: We have full day of sports and then we will be working in the yard so leftovers will be on the menu
Sunday: Grilled Salmon with veggie kabobs
Just remember when you are feeling a bit overwhelmed with “life” a little organization goes a long way. Most of these meals can be prepared in less than 30 minutes and some can even be fully cooked within that time. If you are still looking for inspiration head over to my Menu Plans. On Pinterest?
