D - Copycat Olive Garden Minestrone Soup with water to drink (E) * I only use 1 1/2 T. of oil, rather than the 3 that is listed in the recipe. If you want the pasta in the soup, use Dreamfield's.

Sunday:

L - leftover Copycat Olive Garden Minestrone Soup with water to drink (E)
S - (2) Peanut Butter Cups with Cider Pop to drink (S)
D - Chicken Lo Mein with water to drink (E) *Substitute Dreamfield's Pasta for the whole grain pasta. I omit the mushrooms (because we don't like them) and I add 1/3 bag of frozen peas. I also use Bragg's Liquid Aminos in place of the soy sauce, but feel free to use the soy sauce. You need to double the recipe to get 4 servings.

Have a great week & happy eating!!!

  1. Are your meal plans just for one person?

    1. Yes and no. Breakfast and lunch is planned out just for myself, as my family is not 100 % on plan. Unless it's a big egg dish for breakfast (frittata or breakfast casserole) or a large salad at lunch (i.e. High Protein Mediterranean Salad). All the dinners are portioned for my family of 6.
