If you didn’t catch my initial post with the list of the foods you should eat every day you can click here.
Gotta say, I love spaghetti squash and once this challenge is complete I’ll have had two different spaghetti squash recipes this week but I was super excited to get to eat actual pasta. It was whole wheat but still… it’s pasta. 🙂 I also had amazing success with my last Olive Garden copy cat recipe so I was super excited to try this one out. You’ll have to come back in a few days to hear how it went! (I’ll be providing every recipe that I used this week over the next few days).
I’m still finding out that my original meal plan was just waaaay too much food. As you’ll see below, there’s a lot that’s not getting eaten every day.
Below is my original meal plan. I’ve scratched through some things so that I can show you what I didn’t eat on day 6.
Day 6 Meal Plan:
Smoothie with 1c frozen blueberries, 1 T milled flax seeds, half of a banana and 1 carton of greek yogurt.
