Menu plan 8-20-12: Back on my diet

It's back to school day, which also means it's back on my diet day!

Last year, I lost 28 pounds by cutting out most carb foods - flour, sugar, rice, and fruit.  I still ate beans and veggies as well as protein foods like meats and eggs.  And I drank lots and lots and lots of water. I kept this diet six days a week; on Saturdays, I would eat whatever I wanted.  It was not always easy to keep, but it was effective.

But in the last several months, I've gotten lazy, and I've gained much of the weight back.  So I decided to get back on once school starts, which is now.

So when I make dinner, I'll make a stir-fry or other one-dish meal that fits my diet, then add rice or pasta for my husband and children to eat. 

So here are my dinner plans:

Monday - chicken and vegetable stir-fry over brown rice

Tuesday - veggie chili over pasta

Wednesday - whole wheat pizza for the family, leftovers for me

Thursday - salmon with 7 spice seasoning over salad greens

Friday - chicken soup with matzah balls, baked chicken, salad, challah

Saturday - fettuccine alfredo, caesar salad

Sunday - carry in sandwiches and salads
