Meal Planning (Part II)



After two weeks of the same meals I'd say a change in the menu sounds pretty good!  For two weeks (taking off on Sunday..okay and sort of of Saturday too) I successfully followed the previous meal plan and I'm happy to report back losing almost 4 lbs!  I also have to say that both my husband and I commented to each other how we love this meal "prep" planning because we are never hungry.  In between each meal you can always grab one of the snack options.  The other thing that I really became aware of over the past two weeks was portion control.  Adjusting our portions has helped tremendously and has helped even on our "cheat" days because I now see that most our portions were way too big!  How have you all been doing?? 

This weeks meals consist of four lunch/dinners and three snack options.

ENTREES: (These can be used as either a lunch or a dinner)




1. BLT
In each container I added a few pieces of romaine, four slices of tomato and four strips of bacon.  The only condiment you need to add (when you're going to eat) is the mayo. The lettuce acts as the bread for this particular low carb version of the BLT.


2. Broccoli & Shrimp 
I used one bag of steamed broccoli, one bag of Pasta Zero, one bag of shrimp and a packet of shrimp scampi seasoning.  After cooking everything together on the stove I added in a little olive oil.




3. Burritos 
You have heard me talk about the "Real Good" burritos from the grocery store before.  Each box contains two.  I bought myself the cheese and my husband the beef.  I cooked the burritos according to the directions then added one to each container.  I added 1/4 can of southwest corn, a lime slice and two pieces of chopped tomato. 
 




4. Tomato Mozzarella Spinach
I figured this would be a great lunch option.  I added the spinach to the bottom of the container, added sliced tomato and sliced mozzarella.  I chopped up some fresh basil and added on top.  When you are ready to eat this just drizzle some balsamic on top! 


SNACKS:
1. Once again I did the berry bowls with granola.  These are just too good to skip out on.
(Strawberry, rasberry, blackberry and one spoonful of granola)

2. Olives, mixed nuts, string cheese



3. Small bags of pork rinds.

4. Lunch meat from the deli. (This I didn't put in it's own bags but it's available to snack on. 

Sorry if this last post was confusing! I know a lot of you wanted this post up before grocery shopping this week!  You can always message me with any questions!

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!  


To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white.

1. Drizzle


2. Sterling

3. Halation

These three options are also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

My first attempt at "Meal Planning".....

Okay friends ...well the vote was basically unanimous..97% of you voted "YES" to an easy low carb based meal prepping plan for the week.  So here we are! I say "low carb based" because there are a few carbs as well as some berries.  However the intake is still very low and definitely in an approved amount for any low carb diet.  
A few things to mention... I did not have the containers and like I mentioned in my stories Monday morning I did not have time to head to Target, Walmart or wait for Amazon delivery so I purchased mine at Publix the same day I shopped.  They were very inexpensive anyways so it worked out fine.  I got two sizes of containers (entree and soup/salad) and I also ended up using some of my existing tupperware. 
The four entrees that I made for the week (I can rotate them for lunches and dinners) do not contain any chicken.  This is because I personally don't like the taste of reheated chicken.  If you do then definitely substitute out some of t…
