Menu Planning Monday- Menu 13

Happy Menu Planning Monday everyone!

We are back from our anniversary trip and I am happy to report that I stayed on plan by getting my own groceries for my breakfasts and lunches and sticking to S meals for dinners- We had salmon w/ butter and dill sauce and eggplant parmesean w/ caprese as well as other really yummy S meals which inspired me to come home and make my own versions of these dishes. It is possible and FUN to stay on plan on vacation!! I had more energy than I have on any other vacation I’ve taken, I didn’t feel bloated and miserable like I tend to feel on other vacations because of what I eat, and I came home and weighed myself and maintained my weight!! For those who are interested, I will post in more detail what I ate on my trip for Tip Tuesday.

But for now, here is my tentative menu for the week:

Monday:

Breakfast (E)- oatmeal, 1 tsp. PB, 1/2 apple, cinnamon, and sweetener w/ greek yogurt and the other /2 an apple w/ cinnamon and sweetener on the side
