daily menu

When I was here before there was a daily menu thread up and running. It was a way of keeping track personally but also of giving others an idea of what to have to eat! I have had a quick look but not seen it this time round so I thought I'd start one off for today.

Had a good start, with bacon and scrambled eggs for breakfast, now for my first challenge....DH wants to go to his favourite fish and chip shop for lunch!! I'm not going to say no because I want food to fit into my life, not have to change my life to fit food! Previously I would have had a childs fishcake and chip meal (about 10 WW points) but I think I'll have a chicken breast with a bit of salad instead!

Planning on cooking spaghetti bolognese for the kids' tea so I'll have some of the sauce layered in a dish with a bit of cheese, finished in the oven! Looking forward to it already

I don't usually post on these Lynne, lol! because, like you, I cook for the family (4 of us), so I just make my food as easy as possible - generally the same thing day in, day out, and then I just substitute different things in when I want a different meal, but I expect today will be my "go-to" menu. I am trying to lose 5 pounds, so this is a weightloss menu for me:

breakfast: protein bar
coffee and milk

lunch:
avocado cheese sandwich on half lc pita
8 oz brussel sprouts
coffee and milk

afternoon snack:
egg-free flax muffin with whipped cream
peppermint tea with splenda

dinner:
two fried eggs with cheese and salsa
3 cups of sauteed cabbage (no oil - pam spray)

dessert/evening snack:
soynut butter almond drop
peppermint tea with splenda

There is a daily menu and exercise thread over on Main Board, but it would be good to get one here too ..

Hi sugarscrap ,

Normally somebody will start one in the Main Low Carb Lobby - I'm still finding my way around the board, so I don't know if there's normally one in the Century Club also.

It' TUESDAY! What are you eating today?

I find these kind of threads really useful, both for looking for ideas and simply writing down what I'm having / have had, to keep myself accountable.

Sounds good! I'm also having mince today - have made a sheperd's pie with mashed cauli (with butter & cream) instead of the potato, with cheese on top. Let's hope it's at least edible!

thanks for that link, I'll go and check it out. Believe it or not I'd forgotten about cauli mash! I used to live on it too, great fried with bacon Mmm, think tomorrows breakfast is sorted, just need to have something with cauli mash for tea so I can have some left over

I actually find it easier with LC cooking for the family than I do with WW, I think maybe its because when I do have to do something different maybe because the kids are having chips or something then I have lots of lovely stuff I can have myself, for example yesterday I did myself lasagne with the bolognese sauce the kids had, and I made enough so I can have it for another meal. Mind you it is only the second day!! When I was following LC seriously before I only had me and my little boy to cook for, ( he still isn't keen on potatoes because he just never had them!!) now I have twin stepsons too, although hubby prefers to cook his own disgusting meals, liver and mash and suchlike!!

What a great problem to have!!!!!! More children That is really funny about your son not liking taters!! I don't know how it is in Wales, but my husband is from Ireland and that would be tantamount to treason Actually I think he'd be disowned now anyhow ... he loves cauli mash and sometimes cannot even tell it is not regular mash

(have you ever thougt about trying to make a lc shepherd's pie with cauli mash?)

Ooooh, I hadn't thought about frying it with bacon . Wonder if it'd do a nice bubble and squeak with some leeks and cabbage mushed in, and a small dollop of HP sauce?

I'm still alive, so the shepherd's pie with cauli mash must have been ok.

Oh Yeahhhh!! It does a fab bubble and squeak!! Not sure about the HP sauce but thats just because I don't like HP sauce!!. Its really nice cooled and wrapped round cubes of cheese then fried too!!

Got a cheeseburger pie with cauli mash planned for tomorrow, I still can't believe I forgot all about cauli mash!!
