I have to admit: the low-carb stuff is seeming a bit boring to me. I am tired of eggs and bacon for breakfast. I am a little bored with salads for lunch. I miss the variety of high-carb foods out there.
This week I am aiming to add more low-carb veggies to the mix to make things a bit more interesting. I am doing tuna salad stuffed tomatoes for lunch to have something different.Even though it is getting more summery here, I think I’ll add some soups to the mix, too.
Sunday: BBQ at my parents’ house
Monday: Cinnamon and Chicken Stew with artichoke hearts and spinach subbed for the chickpeas (maybe some mushrooms added, too, because I love them even if no one else does), quinoa for the family, fried cabbage and bacon
Tuesday: Sausage and Eggplant Stew, cooked on the stovetop instead of the crockpot
Wednesday: Korean Beef (made with ground turkey, because that is what I have on hand, and probably Truvia instead of the brown sugar), cauli-rice, green beans
Thursday: bratwurst, broccoli, fries for the kids, sauteed mushrooms for me
Friday: Eggplant and Mushroom Curry, leftover cauli-rice, maybe some Indian spiced chicken
All I will need to buy this week is Italian sausage and maybe a bit of bacon and eggs and some green beans, so not a bad plan!
Anyone else doing low-carb? What do you do for breakfast and lunch. It has been all bacon and eggs for breakfast and big salads for lunch here. That sounded so exciting, especially with full fat salad dressing, but I am bored, bored, bored.
As always, there are a lot more menu-planning ideas over at orgjunkie.com!
