This past week has been pretty crazy. For various reasons, I didn’t actually follow much of my meal plan (this is RARE). Also, our friend left us with four pounds of thawed ground venison that will need to be used so my plans for this coming week have changed! I’m going to be able to freeze some of the meat that I bought for this coming week and use it in the weeks to come. Also, some meals have been added to the week in the dining hall.
Breakfasts (still working on high protein and keeping it simple)
- Fried eggs, turkey sausage, English muffins or homemade bread (toasted) with peanut butter and honey, and fruit
- Fried eggs, protein Green smoothie (with Fairlife milk and protein powder), breakfast cookies (I’m going to reduce flour and add in some collagen for protein)
- Boiled eggs, protein oatmeal (called “Think Thin”), and fruit
I will also be adding collagen to my coffee for added protein.
Kids and Robert eat:
- Breakfast tacos (usually just eggs and potatoes on tortilla with cheese)
- Omelets (usually just a cheese one)
- Oatmeal (Karis and Ethan sometimes choose this)
The kids usually eat a second breakfast at school. What they eat at home is just to get them to school plus the boys have to to have food in their stomachs when they take their meds).
- Sandwich with veggies and hummus, fruit, and Triscuits
- Cottage cheese, boiled eggs, veggies and hummus, fruit, and Sun Chips
- Quesadillas with veggie tray on the side
