Induction menu ideas

I've started back on induction because i've been struggling with my weight. Could you give me ideas on either meal plans or what you eat in a day for example. I'd really appreciate it.

for breakfast I usually have eggs and bacon.. I love eggs....
but I have done lettuce with bacon and swiss cheese - mayo rolled up.. pretty good for anytime....

lunch -
lettuce roll ups
chicken salad
egg salad
tuna salad
chicken roll ups - chicken with cream cheese and a small slice of pickle


dinner -
taco salad (w/o the tacs )
pork steak and veggies or cole slaw
chicken with tomato sauce and spices and veggies
cornish hen
quiche
white castle pie
chicken stuffed with mushrooms and swiss cheese (I get these at Walmarts 2 in a pkg- love them only 4 carbs )


I am kind of boring... for if I like something I tend to have it alot..... and then when I get tired of it I move on to something else....

Thanks so much for your reply and ideas. A couple of questions-how do you make your egg salad,tuna salad,etc. And castle pie. I haven't heard of that.
I love eggs and bacon too,do you restrict how much protein you have or count calories? I don't and maybe i'm eating too much. Thanks

Linda's Low Carb Menus & Recipes - Recipes

That website has a lot of amazing recipes for low carb dieting. All of them list the carb counts so you can make an informed decision before making and trying them out.

As for induction ideas, here are some of mine:

B: eggs and bacon/sausage; quiche; or leftovers
L: chicken salad; salad with meat on top; turkey/mayo/pickle roll-ups; or leftovers
D: one of the great recipes from Linda Sue's website; hamburgers on the grill w/ green beans; chicken w/ sauted spinach; etc.

Tuna Salad/Chicken Salad - I make it with canned tuna/chicken, mayo, and cut up celery. Salt/Pepper. Sometimes I'll add some SF relish to my chicken salad.

Egg Salad - mash up hard boiled eggs and add mustard/mayo and SF relish to taste.

I'm sure you could google tons of recipes for the above "salads", but those are the ways I do it.

2 bacon, 2 eggs for bfast

small steak and eggs for lunch

Chicken with zucchini "pasta" - grate or spiralize your zucchini into noodles, saute just a minute or so until just a bit softened but still firm. (al dente!). Put on plate.
Cook chicken breast cut up with butter and parmesean, and mushrooms or other stuff if you like. Pour over "noodles". YUM!

My typical day:

Breakfast: 4 slices bacon, coffee w/heavy cream (I don't like eggs)

Lunch: 2 cheeseburger patties w/Tbsp chopped onion, dill relish, mustard

Dinner: Tuna Melt with side salad

To make my tuna melt, I mix one can tuna with a half stalk of celery chopped, and a tbsp of chopped onion with mayo. Put tuna salad in oven safe dish and top with 2 slices cheddar cheese (or you can use REAL American cheese). Put under broiler until cheese bubbles and starts to brown slightly.

My side salad is two cups of torn romaine lettuce topped with vinegar and olive oil to which I've added a crushed clove of garlic.

Thanks so much for all the ideas and help on meals. Also the site for the recipes. What a great help. Being new here I'm not sure about all this so any ideas are welcome.

Thanks so much. Sure helps to know what other people are eating. It does for me anyhow. Especially with struggling right now. Makes me SO MAD at myself because i've been doing great for 2 years and stress did me in. If I don't change my ways ,i'll gain it all back and I don't want to. All these ideas help me out so much.

it helps me too! in the past when I succeeded at atkins, I would read other people's menus for inspiration. and sometimes people would post their meals for critique and then I could learn what NOT to do

Sure helps me right now. A couple of years ago when I lost the weight,it didn't seem like I struggled like I am now. The lbs. just don't want to budge. It says i'm 156 but i'm up to probably 162 today. The scale just isnt moving. So I was wondering what I was doing wrong.That is why it is SO helpful with the meal plans and seeing what others are eating. I see you drink coffee.I have a real problem with coffee, I LOVE it....does that slow progress?

Coffee is one of those foods where "your mileage may vary." I've read that some people have cravings after caffeine, but it does not affect me at all. I don't add artificial sweetener to mine, just real cream, and I count the carbs toward my daily total.

As you can see by my stats, it certainly hasn't stalled me. If you really enjoy coffee and it doesn't affect you, why give it up?

Another discovery that I've made that has really helped me in those times that I want a quick meal (in those times past that I would eat a sandwich), is to make a sandwich in a bowl and add mayonnaise rather than salad dressing. A BLT for example, or chicken, lettuce and mayo. It's delicious and just as fast as a sandwich.

Tonight's dinner is steak and mushrooms sauteed in butter.

I had the tuna melt last night for supper and it was so good. Just like that,i'd have never thought to make it. Helps for other peoples ideas. Thanks.
As for the coffee I don't think I could give it up because really I don't have any other things I do like drink pop. I do add real cream to my coffee sometimes. Do you add it everytime and how many carbs do I count? So new to this so sorry for all the questions.

I start every day with a mocha that I make at home. I found west soy has an unsweetened vanilla with one net carb per cup and use torani sfwhite choc syrup. I also started adding a healthy splash of heavy cream and it tasted alot better. I have been doing this since day one of my loss and it's never stalled me one bit.
