I hope everyone had a great Christmas celebration with their family and friends. We had a great time with family from near and far. Unfortunately, I ate terribly for about the last week, but I'm back on track now. I'm planning a cheat for New Year's Eve as we'll be making pizza with my brother and his family.

This week's menu is filled with recipes that do not use any specialty items (i.e. gluccomannan, protein powder, etc...). All the foods in these recipes you should be able to find at any regular grocery store.

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

B - Peanut Butter Shake (S) ***Omit the gluccomannan. I find the shake is thick enough without it. Also, I used 4 t. of Truvia in place of the stevia extract.
L - Just Like Campbell's Soup topped with cheddar cheese (S) pg. 292
S - popcorn (E)
D - Grilled Chicken, green beans (with butter) and roasted broccoli and cauliflower (S)

B - Eggs and bacon (S)
L - Salad with leftover grilled chicken, cheddar and Ranch (S)
S - Cottage Berry Whip (FP) 
D - No Tortilla Enchilada Bake with lettuce and sour cream (S) *** Use this recipe for the enchilada sauce

B - Apple Cinnamon Yogurt (E) pg. 250
L - leftover No Tortilla Enchilada back with lettuce and sour cream (S)
S - handful of almonds (S)
D - Pizza with fresh veggies (CHEAT)
