Menu Plan Monday ~ May 28, 2012

I haven’t posted about our menu for a while, so I thought I would play along with I’m an Organizing Junkie today.

Amy, Shane and I bought a year’s subscription to Saving Dinner’s Menu Mailer.  They have a great assortment of weekly menus.  We picked out the Low Carb option.  What’s so great about it is that they give a complete grocery list of everything you need for the week so we don’t even have to make a list, we just print it out and add to it!  So far, we’re really enjoying the menu and the meals that we are getting.  Unfortunately, because it’s proprietary, I won’t be publishing any of the recipes here (they can unsubscribe us from the mailer), but I can tell you what we’re eating!!  LOL.  They only give 6 meals per week, so we have to come up with something for one of the nights, but that’s not usually too hard.

Saturday ~ Chicken Parmesan, Noodles and Sauce (kids), broccoli & cauliflower (grups)

Sunday ~ Taco Quiche and Salad

Monday ~ Tomato Pork Chops, Faux-tay-toes, broccoli, and potatoes for the kids

Tuesday ~ Crockpot drumsticks, coleslaw, salad and rolls for the kids

Wednesday ~ Chicken Salad Wraps

Thursday ~ Cranberry Roast Beef, potatoes, carrots & faux-tay-toes for the grups

Friday ~ Veggie Fish Italiano, Red Potatoes, Salad

Since we’ve been doing the low carb mailer (about 2 weeks)…between the 3 of us, we’ve lost approximately 20 lbs.  Best of all, we’re feeling better physically.  We aren’t cutting out carbs completely, we are just not eating a lot of them.  When we do eat them, we are making far better choices, like brown rice, whole grain breads, etc.  We’re eating a lot of cauliflower and broccoli, and tons of salads.

That’s all for the day!  Hope everyone is staying cool in this heat…boy it was a hot one today…

  1. I eat low carb as well & always feel better! Good job on the weight loss!!! 🙂

  2. I’ve never heard of Saving Dinner. What a great idea! and kudos to you for the weight loss! Low carb is the only way my brother, sister and I can keep weight off (or lose it). And Carla, I know what you mean, I feel lean and fit when eating this way.
