I don’t schedule breakfast; I just eat whatever sounds good that morning, typically a bowl of cereal (I have a strong preference for Honey-nut Cheerios) or loaded yogurt.
Brunch: scrambled eggs, bacon and hash browns
Dinner: Chicken fajitas w/homemade guacamole, pico de gallo, and sweet corn cake (this is full fat, but I only eat 1/2 a serving). There will also be Spanish rice and refried beans for the family, but I skip them. I also skip the tortilla for my fajitas; I like them just as well without it.
Brunch: scrambled eggs (made with one whole egg, one egg white, a little skim milk and a little shredded sharp cheddar cheese), bacon and hash browns. (No, not terribly low-fat, but it’s one or two days a week and I plan for it.)
Dinner: Homemade manicotti with salad and garlic bread. Yum!
Lunch: tuna-stuffed tomato w/fruit
Dinner: Grilled chicken w/fettuccine Alfredo, salad and garlic bread. (The fettuccine is this recipe made weight-loss-friendlier by using 1/3 less fat cream cheese, only about two tablespoons of butter and skim milk.)
Lunch: Pizza (only 2 slices) and salad
Dinner: Left-over manicotti for me; the family is having chili dogs and chips.
Lunch: Left-over chicken fajitas
Dinner: eat out
Lunch: Broiled tilapia and salad
Dinner: Family dinner @ my sister’s house
Lunch: Burrito bowl (I skip the rice. Typically, I just use lettuce, the chicken, pico de gallo, and sour cream…and guacamole, if I have it. I love to make a big pot of the chicken on the weekend, though, and freeze it in single serving sizes for lunches during the week.)
Dinner: eat out (Yes, I know we do too much of this. Chick-fil-A salads are my friend.)
