Funny thing about naps, they used to be elusive. More recently, I've been able to pretty much curl up in the bed, close my eyes and doze off within a few minutes. Guess I can chalk that up to getting older.
So this week we're going to try a couple of new recipes and eating some old favorites like the pineapple meatballs...we love this!
Monday - Lasagna and salad
Tuesday - BBQ Pineapple with Meatballs over rice and steamed veggies
Wednesday - Paleo Breakfast Casserole* and fruit
Thursday - BBQ Chicken Dump, baked potatoes, green beans
Sunday - Mozzarella Stuffed Burgers*, oven cheese fries and salad
For breakfast this week: Pumpkin Oatmeal and egg white omelette (399 calories); Strawberry Smoothies with peanut butter and banana sandwich (353 calories); Egg, turkey and cheese sandwich and fruit (329 calories)
Snacks will be turkey wrapped string cheese and apples.
For lunch last week I ate Creamy Cilantro Shrimp and Peppers. It was so good, I think I'll eat it again this week. You saute about 15 medium shrimp in nonstick cooking spray, add 1 bell pepper (julienned sliced). Season with cumin and black pepper and continue cooking until bell pepper is getting some blackened spots on it. Only takes a few minutes. Remove shrimp and peppers to a bowl and top with 1/4 cup salsa and 2 tablespoons light sour cream mixed with chopped cilantro. I ate it just like this, but you can easily make tacos out of it by putting the mixture into a couple of soft taco shells.
I hope you have a great week!
