 I have been avoiding this thread because I have been really sucking at this challenge.  I did menu plan and go grocery shopping earlier this week so I am gonna share some of the dinners I will be making during the challenge.


This is tonight.  Stovetop barley with sweet veg http://katyabaxter.com/stove-top-barley-with-sweet-vegetables/


corn chowder http://www.marcigilbert.com/2011/02/22/one-day-three-recipes/

Oi!  Must get back to this.  We have been camping this past week and our wee babe is teething, so life has been a mix of traveling, sleeping on the ground and losing more sleep to a crying baby.  I am struggling with exhaustion today.  My food intake will be mediocre today...I am forcing myself to journal my meals so I don't go face down in a cup of coffee with cream and sugar.  I crave sweets when I am this tired.  




Breakfast:  2 waffles, 2 T maple syrup, berries, small smear of butter and tea with almond milk

Lunch:  brown rice, chicken, veggies, apple

Lunch - church potluck - pesto pasta salad with red and yellow peppers and tomatoes and cheese cubes, spinach salad with eggplant and gluten pieces and craisins, egg salad on whole wheat dinner roll, small slice of chocolate cake with scoop of ice cream, watermelon and grapes

Supper: baked potato wedges, Boca chicken burger on slice of bread with tomato, pineapple popsicle

Tuesday morning was a great weighin that I hope to repeat next Monday, but I think my eating yesterday did not contribute to continued loss for me.

Lunch: 2 small yukon gold potatoes, cottage cheese, vegetarian baked beans, mango popsicle

Supper: school staff bbq: cheese potatoes, vegetarian baked beans, spicy black bean burger with bun, slice of colby jack cheese and tomato, dollop of pistachio pudding salad, home made ice cream, 2 cookies, and watermelon. I suppressed the urge to drink pop!
