Meal Plan Monday: 3/24-3/30/14

Wondering how or why to meal plan? Read this first. Wondering what all the letters (S, E, FP) mean after each meal? Check this out. I've also added page numbers if the recipe comes from the Trim Healthy Mama book.

I was doing so well following my meal plan last week and then I totally fell off the wagon this weekend. We celebrated my son's birthday, had some friends over and then there were left over cupcakes in my house. BAD NEWS!!! I've had enough cupcakes to last me a year. But I'm not going to beat myself up, tomorrow is a new day and I will just start again.

Here's what we'll be eating this week:

B - Apple Cinnamon Greek yogurt swirl (E) pg. 250
L - Loaded Fotato soup with cheddar cheese and bacon (S) pg. 294
D - Chicken stir-fry served over brown rice (E)
S - Celery with 2 T. peanut butter (S)

B - 2 Scrambled eggs with 2 pieces of bacon (S)
L - Buffalo chicken on a low-carb tortilla (I like La Banderita brand) with lettuce, celery and Ranch dressing and side of strawberries (S) pg. 324

B - 0% Greek yogurt sweetened with Truvia to taste and 2 T. peanut butter (S)
L - Loaded Fotato soup with a side of strawberries (FP)
D - No Tortilla Chiken Enchilada bake  (S) In the enchilada sauce you'll have to substitute the Splenda with a stevia based alternative. Add the stevia in 1 t. increments and check the taste as you go.

L - BLAT wraps (bacon, lettuce, avocado, tomato on a low-carb tortilla) with side of mixed fresh berries (S)
