Menu ~ Week of January 23

I am taking a slightly different approach this week and can't wait to see where I end up when it's over.

I am going lower carb than usual.  I want to stay around 30g per day.  My family will not be joining me, however.  I'm hoping this will really help me to completely get off my diabetes meds.  They are so harsh on my stomach I just can't stand it anymore.  

My menu I'm posting is a reflection of that change.  I will add breads, rice, pasta etc. to the meals for the rest of the family.  The added items will be in (items) after the meals.

  1. Good luck on the lower carb. I bet that will help with your weight loss. Keep it up

  2. Best of luck! When I cut back to 60 g/day, I felt a huge change. Felt great, energetic, and lost weight, too. These look like great meals.

  3. Good luck! I'm cutting back on carbs, though that's not the actual intent-- I'm doing Weight Watchers and finding that carb-heavy items cost me too many of my daily points! My menu for this week is HERE if you'd like to take a peek!
