Menu Plan Monday: Let's Get Back To Clean Eating

The last few weeks (months?) I have been lazy and fell back into some old habits. The result, I've gained back some of my hard-lost weight, I feel weak and tired all the time, and I crave carbs like nobody's business. To the point where I resorted to eating a piece of (Orowheat Honey Wheat Berry) bread dry. No butter (apple or otherwise), and once with chocolate coconut frosting on top. I mean, who does that????

You don't even want to know how much chocolate I have eaten in moments of emotional stress, or boredom. It doesn't help that the office candy lady now sits right next to me ...

This week I have endeavored to eat more healthily and get back on the mostly paleo diet that has been working wonders for me (losing weight with minimal high impact exercise? Sign me up!). Dinner menu is below, IP had some input, and the Teen is back in town so I'll have to adjust how much I cook for the next three months.

My lunches for the week will either be leftovers or Tuna Avocado Salad.

And yes, I started playing Ingress again.



Sunday: tried and true Beef and Bean Chili Verde (this time with white kidney beans, which kind of freaked IP out until she tasted it).

Monday: It's Cinco de Mayo!!! Mole and Spanish Rice (recipe forthcoming, though I seem to say that every year)...

Tuesday: Homemade Chicken Soup
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Grilled Citrus Chicken Thighs with Strawberry Avocado Salad
Friday: Chicken Tandoori
