Above: quick lunch of leftovers today! I diced some leftover potatoes with onion powder, chili powder, garlic powder, and pepper then baked on 425* for 30-35 minutes then put them on a bed of spring mix, carrots, tomatoes, and avocado. I used a little bbq sauce and green goddess dressing as dressing for it.
Today was a good day! I spent most of the day with my parents at their house and we watched the replay of the royal wedding, ate lunch, and I cleaned out my clothes that I still had stashed in my old closet. I kept things that I liked but didn’t fit anymore, so I tried it all on and was so excited that THEY FIT! I was fitting into things that I wore after I lost all my weight after Nutrisystem again… things I haven’t worn in years. SO EXCITING! I’ve been glad to have lost 11 pounds, but also frustrated that I’ve been stuck with weight loss the past month or so but today just confirmed that it is coming off. That I’m doing things the healthiest way for me this time and it’s slowly but surely coming off and that’s an exciting thing. I need to be happy with where I am now and keep eating things that make me feel healthy and happy and it’ll eventually come off.
Onto this week’s meal plan, I got most of the recipes off of my McDougall Starch Solution app I have on my phone. They’re approved by the Dr. himself who created the plan so I know they’re healthy oil-free options.
Lentil Sloppy Joes– These are so delicious and filling. I’m topping a ciabatta roll with this saucy, sweet, sloppy mix and roasted broccoli on the side.
Cauliflower Dal– This looked like a tasty recipe with red lentils, cauliflower, and potato with spices served over rice or pita.
Baked Penne Florentine- This is a cashew based creamy sauce swirled with pasta, spinach, and I’m adding mushrooms and baked.
Falafel Wraps– I’m finally trying out the Trader Joe’s falafel mix and adding them to a warm pita with lettuce, tomatoes, and a tahini based sauce.
Crock Pot Pizza Potatoes– This sounded weird, but interesting and I never use my crockpot anymore so I thought it would be worth a shot. It’s thinly sliced potatoes topped with sauce and toppings and cooked on low for 6-8 hours.
Taco Casserole Tacos– I’m making a mix of beans, peppers, onions and salsa and baking then filling tortillas with this mixture.
Have a great week and hopefully one of these (or more) will be tested by your family as well!
