Menu Plan Monday - after the party
All good things have to end and so did my birthday, as well as my poor eating habits. I have had many food issues, such as digestion. I had my six month check-up and my AC1 number is now under control. Matter fact it is the lowest it has ever been in the fifteen years I have been struggling with my blood sugar. I have also successfully reincorporated exercise since leaving my retail job. So it is now time to get serious about diet.
I have a hard time with dairy, raw vegetables, fried and processed foods, not to mention carbonation. Lets face it folks, carbs are not my friends either! I have done well in the past with either a low carb diet or a 1200 calorie diet. I am going to revisit that more militantly and do my best on my extreme low income budget.
This weeks menu plan might not reflect that as I am purging the pantry and fridge of all birthday goodies. Please pray as I am weak willed around food and do struggle with trying to keep my sugar from dropping. I end up eating more carbs/calories in an effort not to pass out. I don't take any medication, so no back up reserves in my blood stream. I do it all myself with my diet.
MONDAY: Crock pot chicken verde' over brown rice , with steamed mix veggies.
TUESDAY: Tuna casserole with pea's and carrots
WEDNSDAY: Eating at church and have no idea what is being served, but I hear that all food served in the presents of God is good for you!
THURSDAY: My middle daughter is having a gender reveal party for my soon to be here sixth grandchild. No idea what is being served, but I lobbied for grilled chicken. I am bringing the warm mustard potato salad as well as the colored pumpkin to reveal the babies sex!
FRIDAY: Baked chicken leg 1/4's with mashed potatoes and broccoli
SATURDAY: Homemade Hawaiian pizza and salad
SUNDAY: Beef and broccoli stir=fry over rice
Hang in there with me as I continue my never ending journey of better health as I keep advancing my age! LOL Hopefully it will get more exciting if not better tasting!
Blessings, Beth Ann
