So what is on your menu for the week?  Wanna take a peek at mine?

We are trying to get back on track with our calorie counting.  Two years ago I lost 32 lbs using myfitnesspal app.  I gained it all back (and then some) last year so it is time to get it under control again.

With that in mind, I have been searching Pinterest for some healthy recipes (see my board here).  I will take the next few weeks try out some new recipes and revisit some old ones.

January 12th-18th, 2014


I will have fruit, English muffins with peanut butter, eggs, and toast, and oatmeal with fruit and nuts.  I try to keep my breakfasts under 300 calories.  The key for me is high protein.  I always make sure I allow for 70 calories for my coffee creamer. 🙂


I plan on having sandwiches and salads.  I am going to try this recipe for chicken salad for the moms at a playdate I am having this week.
