Re: Angela's Menu thread for 9-5-08

Angela, I find it easiest to write down what I am going to eat either in the morning or the night before. I usually start with dinner (since I need to cook for my family) and work backwards to fill in the rest of the day. My breakfast usually doesn't vary that much - have a few low point meals that work good for me. Maybe this will help. Also, if you don't want to eat 3 big meals, you could try and split them into smaller ones (5-6 a day) to get in all your healthy guidelines, ie: save a fruit and a piece of cheese for mid-morning. When you have extra points leftover, use them on snacks that don't meet the HG like 100 calorie packs or granola bars, etc. Hope this helps.

B: Coffee - now
Either my usual fage 0% yogurt with fruit of I bought Kashi Honey Sunshine (1 pt per serving) cereal which I might try

L: Meeting a friend for lunch - planning on a salad with grilled shrimp and strawberries, dressing on the side

D: Salisbury steak with mushrooms (old WW recipe) that is really yummy
roasted potatoes with EVOO

Dessert: Making a variation of the sf/ff yogurt coolwhip pie. Usually make it as a "key lime" pie - this time I am doing strawberry. 3 pts per serving and very yummy.

Whats on your menu?

Re: Angela's Menu thread for 9-5-08

Plans changed for supper. Had to go to calling hours for a friend who died. On the way home stopped for supper at a local fast food place (not a chain). Had grilled chicken on lettuce salad with FF dressing. It did have croutons and cheese on it but took some off. Had a few of Jim's fries and then a baby dish of soft ice cream. The only problem is that their sizes are so big. The baby size is probably at least 12 oz. I ate it all. Used lots of points but it was good.
