Week 18 Meal Plan with No Grains

May 3rd, 2017 at 04:17 pm

It took me a little while to do my meal plan as I can't just fall back on my old ones completely if I am eliminating all grains. Usually meal planning takes me all of 5 minutes. This time it took closer to 15 minutes, but I think next week will be easier. I will be looking for some grain free recipes this week so that I can maybe shake things up a bit.

If I see any berries or other fruit on sale I may get it to use instead of the canned fruit.

    Last night we ate chicken breasts stuffed with a sundried tomato and olive gouda cheese, a couple of scoops of pesto and spinach. The hardest part was butterflying the chicken breast. We've been eating a lot of chicken sausage in a cabbage and bell pepper hash-there are so many interesting sausage flavors! We also had a porkloin stuffed with havarti, pesto and spinach and covered with some spicy brown mustard. We've all but stopped eating carbs (so no grains, sugars or potatoes. We're on the Keto diet) and it's been the most emotionally satisfying meals I've had. The first couple of days were hard but it's been surprisingly easy since then to find food to eat that tastes good.

    Thanks, Jokeabee. Those sound yummy. I've been hearing about the keto diet a lot lately. Giving up potatoes would be harder for me than giving up bread, though. Are you having good results with weight loss?

    I love chicken adobo! I haven't learned to make it yet, but it's one of my favorite meals that my mom cooks. She tried to teach my husband back when I wasn't quite the chef I am now, so maybe it's time I try to learn again.

    In 10 days I've gone from 140-132. A lot of it is water weight and part of it was I started off the diet still counting calories and exercising, which wasn't healthy. It takes time for your body to get used to the minimal carbs-especially if you were eating a high carb/sugar diet before hand. "Keto flu" is real! But after day 3 things go so much easier. I snack on nuts between meals if I start to feel "light" I haven't been hungry as much since I started and I've been sleeping SO GOOD! I still am learning how to manage when I eat so to avoid the lightheaded feeling.

    I love, love, love potatoes in all forms so that bums me out when I think about it. The only real temptation for them was going out to eat but I held strong. There have been so many other foods to eat so it hasn't felt like I've been denying myself yet, and that makes it easier.

    I use https://www.ruled.me/keto-recipes/ to find recipes. It also has a ton of great info about starting a keto diet, if you're interested.

    I recently stopped eating sandwiches for lunch for two reasons: I think the bread (even though it's whole wheat) was making me tired after eating and I always want chips or Fritos with a sandwich. So I'm trying to avoid those!
