Today's Special

I thought I would share one of my meal plans for this week.

Breakfast:
1 cup Raisin Bran (200 cal)
.5 cup skim milk (50 cal)
1 banana (100 cal)

Lunch:
2 slices Whole Wheat Bread (100 cal)
2 oz. deli turkey (50 cal)
1 slice pepper jack cheese (90 cal)
mixed greens
banana peppers
1 cup blackberries (50 cal)
2 tsp. strawberry low fat yogurt (50 cal)

Dinner
4 tsp. olive oil {for cooking} (100 cal)
3 oz chicken breast (350 cal)
2 oz. whole wheat pasta (200)
2 tsp. basil pesto (50 cal)
1 cup zucchini
1 cup mushrooms

Snack:
1 apple (90 cal)
1 T peanut butter (100 cal)

Apx. 1600 cal - 200 cal burned at gym = 1400 cal (net)

Yeah--this is how much food I ate and lost 3 pounds last week. Pretty cool.

(I am following the government food pyramid guidelines. I know that may seem kind of old-school, but it works and that is what First Place 4 Health uses.)

Yes I have tried the ww soup. I made it all the time when I was on ww, so much I kind of got sick of it. I may have to bring it back and change up a little bit..Its nice having something that is "free" to eat.
