Thread for daily menu?

Hi Everyone and a great good morning!

I was wondering if there is a thread each day where we could post our menu for the day? Maybe that would give us all some new ideas for what we eat on a day to day basis?

I'll give you the rundown on what I have planned for today...

B: instant grits/skim milk (4)
L: Lean Cuisine panini (I am addicted to these! LOL)
salad w/vinegar (6)
D: Mock crab alfredo (4)
noodles (4)
green beans (0)
S: WW ice cream cup (2)

My target is 18, but I will use 20 today. I plan a 45 minute walk today and a 45 minute bike ride.

Have a good day!


Re: Thread for daily menu?

Great idea. I am having oatmeal for breakfast and a banana. I have a cup of grapes for a snack, chicken sandwich and green salad for lunch and I have not gotten to dinner yet, but I will let you know once I decide.

Re: Thread for daily menu?

Well,I haven't planned the whole day out yet, but:

For breakfast I'm having a veggie/egg scramble, make with eggbeaters, 1 REAL egg, and 1/2 cup each of green peppers, onions, mushrooms, seasoned with red pepper flakes and a Tablespoon of brown spicy mustard. Yum, Yum!

For my morning snack, I'm having my current favorite. One Dannon Lite and Fit with 2/3 cup of frozen blackberries mixed in. So GOOD, just like eating ice cream, lol.

For lunch, ukisuki, I'm with you. I'm having my Lean Cuisine Panini plus a lettuce/cucumber salad with Ken's FF Balsamic dressing. I like to add in another TBSP of Pompeiian Brand Balsamic and a couple of packets of splenda, to 'temper' the vinegar.

Dinner, well tonight, I'm thinking of having a MSF Mushroom Lover's burger on a plate, with 1/4 cup of Hunts Chunky Veggie Spaghetti sauce on top. To my dinner plate I PILE on the veggies, (usually a mix of a couple or three of these: cauliflower/broccoli/zucchini/yellow squash/brussel sprouts/asparagus/green beans) .....the list goes on forever, lol. I just grab what I have that looks good from the freezer. I nuke them for a couple of minutes until about half cooked, then throw them into my sprayed, hot, little wok, and stir fry the heck out of them. In the last minute, I press a couple of garlic cloves into the mix, splash in some more of my fav Balsamic vinegar, s and p to taste, and dump it all onto my dinner plate with whatever 'burger' I've chosen. I, love, love, love, this dinner. Have it a couple of times each week. I usually don't want an evening snack, my dinner has so completely satisfied my needs for the day. (This is such a major change from the struggle I USED to have during the evening!)

Oh, and the afternoon snack? I really need to find something for that period of time. When I do my next big shopping trip next week, I'm gonna concentrate on finding some healthy things just to keep for those barren afternoon hours. Something around 100 calories I can have with a glass of 1% milk. I'll find something!

Here's for me!

I also had a blueberry bran muffin from TJ's warmed in the micro w/ a little spray Olivio on it.

Breakfast total: 2 pts

Evening snack
I am not sure yet what I'll have but I'll have 2 pts left. I try my best to have 2 pts left when dinner is over so that I can have some sort of snack in the evening. I do best when I graze throughout the day both in my attitude and on the scale! lol!
