Getting Back on Track...Our Meal Plan for the week!

Like I mentioned on my last post, we have not had the healthiest holiday.  While I cooked all of the food, the problem was that I used oil for many of the recipes and we were mostly eating cooked food.  Oh yeah, and we ate lots of desserts!   All of this created a 7 pound weight gain for me.  The first clue was my pants feeling tighter and then my kids wanted me and my husband to weigh ourselves on the grocery store scale.  We ALL gained weight, it wasn't just me.  Yeah, it's time to clean up the meal plan!

Rolled Oats or Steel Cut Oats with dried fruit and nuts
Fresh pressed juice, mostly carrots and arugula.

Salad greens from our garden, shredded carrots and beets, chickpeas, cucumbers
and boiled organic fingerling potatoes with fresh salsa...yes Every Day!!

Soup, soup, soup!  All recipes are from Appetite for Reduction.
Broccoli Soup, Arabian Lentil and Rice soup, Tortilla Soup, Cauliflower Pesto Soup, Manhattan Glam Chowder, Yam & Black Bean Soup.

Fresh Fruit or Veggies with low fat "Shiny Happy Hummus".
