Meal Plan Monday

I haven't done a Meal Plan Monday in awhile, but since the Do or Do Not Challenge is over, I thought it might be fun to share the things I'm eating these days.

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.)

What's on your menu this week?


  1. Do you snack between meals? How do you stave off hunger between breakfast, lunch, and dinner?

  2. Thank you for sharing this as I always need ideas! Do you think you could share your weekly workouts and ask your blog readers to do the same? I'm needing some inspiration in that area. ;o)

  3. @Jenny, I don't typically snack between meals. If I'm going to workout, I typically eat Luna Bar Mini. Otherwise, if I do snack, my favorites are: fruit, yogurt, string cheese or a boiled egg.

  4. Susan,

    Sure! I could probably stand some inspiration there myself.
