Low-Carb Menu Aug. 11th-17th

I am applying Trim Healthy Mama principles to my Atkins lifestyle. I try to eat 5+ E meals a week. They are usually my lunch.

Last Thursday I didn’t take the time to plan out this weeks menu. I think I like it when I take the time to plan. I’m still not eating as many veggies as I would like. I don’t know why it has been so hard to add them in. I was doing so well for a while. I keep thinking Whole30, Whole30 but am not ready just yet to commit to one.

Unless otherwise noted all foods are low carb.

Sunday: 137.4

Breakfast: Coffee w/half and half, 2 cinnamon muffins with cream cheese frosting
Lunch: Wendy’s small chili, 3/4 cup 0% Greek yogurt with 1/2 cup blueberries
Snack: Atkins Indulgence Coconut Bar
Dinner: Wendy’s Pretzel Burger with only the bottom part of the bun net27. (not low carb) w/water

I was really wanting to try that new Pretzel Bacon Burger (have been for weeks and weeks but have passed it up). Today my hubby had it for lunch and it looked so good. It’s been calling my name.  I took off the top piece of bread and gave that to my hubby. Guess we’ll see this week what kind of weight damage I did, uh-oh.

Monday: 137.4

Breakfast: 2 scrambled eggs with the last two leftover cabbage rolls
Lunch: Salad, this was a premade salad. It had small portions of black beans, quinoa, tiny bit of feta cheese, turkey, and lots of lettuce. I added some salsa instead of the dressing that it came with. I also added 1/2 cucumber and 1 small organic tomato.
Dinner: Spaghetti with sweet potato noodles (my own recipe)

I’m trying really hard to eat more veggies. I was happy that I had some with every meal today.

My lunch. It had a little bit of corn, maybe a TBL or so. Really the black beans was not that much too.

Tuesday: 137.4

Breakfast: Kefir Strawberry smoothie
Lunch: Zucchini Fritters
Snack: Pumpkin low-carb muffin
Dinner: Chile Relleno Casserole THM pg. 325 and a salad with salsa as the dressing.
Snack: Atkins bar with coffee

I kept craving low-carb sweets but I didn’t want to make anything. I was a bit tired toward the end of the day, so I opted for an Atkins bar.

Wednesday: 137.2

Breakfast: Low-carb muffin with coffee
Lunch: Mex. Cottage Cheese Salad with leafy greens and a 1/2 of an Ezekiel English Muffin (12net carbs). This would be a pulled back E meal if you’re doing HTM.
Dinner: Cheeseburger Pie THM pg. 326 added shredded veggies
Snack: Pumpkin muffin

My cinnamon muffins with cream cheese frosting.

Thursday: 137.4

Breakfast: Bulletproof Coffee with a muffin
Lunch: Mex. Cottage Cheese Salad with extra leafy greens
Snack: 1/2 of an Ezekiel English Muffin with a tsp of jam (if on THM it’s a pulled back E)
Dinner: Leftover dinner of chili relleno casserole and cheeseburger pie with veggies
Snack: Starbucks iced coffee made with cream and stevia

I had some high calorie stuff toward the end of the day. I don’t expect to lose anything.

Made some coconut creamer and pumpkin muffins for tomorrow before I went to bed. Prep is a good thing. Saves me time the next morning.

Friday: 136.4

Breakfast: Bulletproof Coffee
Snack: Pumpkin Muffin with cream cheese frosting. I need to finish up the frosting.
Lunch: Kefir Smoothie with a Mex. Cottage Cheese Salad and lots of greens
Dinner: Avocado, turkey, and tomato lettuce wraps with cucumber slices and a pumpkin muffin

Wahoo! I didn’t expect to lose anything after drinking the iced coffee the day before. Today I ate about 15 net carbs in veggies. This is my goal. I NEED to eat more veggies. I have been eating Atkins friendly foods but feel like I’m not eating as good as I could be.

I’m having a lot of stomach issues. I know I need to get rid of the beans, cottage cheese, and such but they are so good.

Saturday: 136.6

Breakfast: Coffee with half and half and a Kefir Smoothie
Lunch: Apple Cottage Cheese Salad with greens
Snack: Kefir Smoothie
Dinner: In-N-Out Burger with no bun and a salad before I leave to get my veggies
Snacks: Saxby’s Raspberry Swirl sugar free coffee

This has been a really off week with my Trim Healthy Mama way of eating. I was experimenting with my own recipes and trying out some THM muffins which are S muffins. With them being S muffins it was harder to get those E meals in for me. I try eating at least 5 E meals a week.

This was one of those weeks were I felt I was not eating very good but at the same time I did add more veggies. I have had some huge salads with cucumbers, tomatoes, and avocados. All the meat dishes had shredded zucchini or carrots or sweet potatoes. Not enough to affect what type of meal though. It’s not like I’m eating half a sweet potato with my meals. I also needed to use up some Kefir so I’ve been adding some smoothies in.
