The cravings and temptations are gone. I can't believe it. All of the menus have been quite alright. I have some favorites by now. Each one is a good balance of protein and carbs.
"protein pancakes" - a mix of 3 eggs, 1/2 cup quick oats, 1 scoop of protein powder, cinnamon to flavor (I like a lot)
"turkey sausage and eggs" - 3 whites, 4 oz turkey sausage
"chicken and green beans" - 4 oz shredded chicken breast, 1 can of low sodium green beans
"turkey chili" - ground turkey, kidney beans, onion, tomato, Italian spices
"chicken and wheat pasta" - 4 oz shredded chicken, 1 c wheat pasta, homemade high protein pasta sauce (tomatoes thickened with blended kidney beans)
"salmon and sweet potatoes" - (S & S) 4 oz salmon, 1 small sweet potato or 22 sweet potato fries
I bake everything except the scrambled eggs. Those I cook on the stove. My husband, however, actually likes them cooked in the microwave. ewe!!! I also prepare the pasta on the stove. My baking is done on a stoneware pan... nothing sticks to it, so I don't even have to add olive oil if I don't want to. All I add is a yummy combination of spices.
Let me know if you want any specific recipes. I also have them listed on my food tracking wiki called t-wow.wikispaces.com.
