Weekly Menu

Weekly Menu for the week of 2/1-2/7 – Now that the days are getting longer and it’s time to come out of hibernation, I want to eat more protein, fewer carbs, and slightly less fat.  My goal is to gently make that change by eating more protein at lunch and dinner, and instead of using granola with my yogurt & fruit, I will use nuts & seeds.  In exchange for the added nuts, I will reduce my almond butter consumption and use a little bit less olive oil in my cooking. I will also add whey protein shakes here and there.

    • Lunch & snacks – Leftover 10-minute broccoli dish, orange, hard-boiled egg, sliced apple & almond butter
