Then my daughter defended me, "Mom's not fat!"
"Yes she is!"
"No she's NOT!"
That was the discussion when the kids found out they were having yet another P3 friendly dinner. I figured since they eat crap most of the day in the form of cereal, tortillas, PB and J and the like, it wouldn't kill them to eat P3 for dinner. Apparently they miss my old dinners. (So do I, but I don't miss weighing almost 200 lbs enough to go back to them.)
That being said, I still find the need to shake things up. I can only eat a chicken and spinach BBQ ranch salad so many times...delicious as it is. I'm sure you run into the same issue. So, I'm sharing my menu for the next week. It's all pretty easy stuff to make.
-Baked Turkey Breast with mashed cauliflower and Heinz jarred gravy
-Spaghetti squash with meat sauce and Parmesan
-Mini Meat loafs from sugarfreesheila.com
-Pizza with flourless crust: The crust looks like a big ol pain in the butt to make, but eating pizza and not gaining weight from it? Worth the extra work now and then.
-Steak and steamed veggies
-Chicken Cordon Bleu: This was a hit with the fam. Easy too! Pound out some chicken breasts to about 1/4 inch thick. Roll two slices of sugar free ham (I get mine at Trader Joe's) and two slices of swiss cheese up in the chicken and secure with a toothpick or skewer. Season generously with Lawry's seasoning salt and pepper. Bake on 375 for about 30 minutes. Check it at 25 for doneness. So good! If you are feeling fancy, you can dip the whole thing in an egg wash and dredge in a mixture of Parmesan cheese and almond flour for a pretty breading.
Dinners on Deck:
Beanless chili with onions, cheese and sour cream
Fajitas minus the tortillas
Creamy tomato soup with cheese chips
When the time comes, (5 more days) to add in starches slowly, I'm having me some Truscuits and hummus baby! I miss crunch. I also want tortilla chips and salsa.
I had to buy a belt today because I can't keep any of my pants up! That's a great feeling.
I was hovering at 176.00 this morning which means if I gain even a fairy's fart worth of weight I have to do another steak day. Wah! I wish I were more regular and I doubt it would be much of a problem. BM's every five or so days...sheesh! No wonder the pounds creep back...it's not going anywhere. Is that a P3 thing?
