I’m suspending this weeks Window Shopping Wednesday so that I can share with you the start of my Foods You Should Eat Every Day Challenge. Let’s get started!
If you didn’t catch my initial post with the list of the foods you should eat every day you can click here.
Almost right off the bat it became clear that the meal plan I’d worked up (as per my original post) was going to be waaaaay more food than I could possibly eat. So, I cut out a snack group. Instead, I’m going to eat Snack 1 on one day, and then Snack 2 the following day. In addition, my portion sizes are pretty darn small!
Below is my original meal plan. I’ve scratched through some things so that I can show you what I didn’t eat on Monday.
Day 1 Meal Plan:
Smoothie with 1c frozen blueberries, 1 T milled flax seeds, half of a banana and 1 carton of greek yogurt.
Eggs (most likely some form of quiche since that’s the only way I’ll ever really eat eggs)
Apple (one very small jazz apple)
Carrots (about 10 baby carrots)
Handful of nuts (about ¼ cup)
Sweet potatoes sautéed in olive oil with garlic and onions (recipe to come)
Salmon croquette (recipe to come)
Spinach salad w/ tomatoes, bell peppers, and mushrooms (I added a few green and black olives as well as some parmesan Italian dressing)
Nature valley oat bar
Oven baked fish filets (not homemade)
Gluten-Free Cheesy Veggie Pasta Bake (recipe to come)
Large glass milk
Cinnamon dark hot chocolate
All in all, I was very satisfied all day. I did find myself craving some chocolate but by the time dessert came around I just wasn’t hungry. We did end up eating kind of a late dinner so we’ll see if the same thing happens tonight.
