Snack:
1.5 srvg. barbecue pork rinds (0g); 3 c. water

2 pcs. cheese-pepperoni "Popsie" pizza (recipe from GirlGonePrimal.Blogspot.com) with mushrooms and black olives (6g); side salad with oil and vinegar (2g); 3 c. water
Comments:
I wish I could remember on whose page I got the link for this Girl Gone Primal site - I love it! It has really given me a lot to consider and research, regarding whether Atkins or Paleo is right for me. I am enjoying trying out the recipes very much, so thanks, whomever you were!
Update:
Hubby says this is the best pizza he's had, since we started the plan, and asked me to add it to our list of favorites... SCORE!!!

Dinner:
Medallion chicken breast (0g); broccoli (3g); kale sautéed in butter and oil (4g); 3 c. water
Comments:
Needed to use up the fresh broccoli and kale, so minor revisions to original asparagus/salad plan.

============================
=======

Thursday 04/18/13: 19g "new food day"

Breakfast:
1/2 Parmesan chicken breast (0g); 18 oz coffee with 1 T. cream (1g) and 4 drops EZ sweetz; 3 c. water; pills

Snack:
1 srvg. barbecue pork rinds (0g); 1T flax seeds with 1 T. cream and seasonings (1g); 3 c. water

Lunch:
Taco salad with cheese and tomatoes (4g) with guacamole (5g); 3 c. water

Dinner:
Bruschetta chicken medallions topped with tomatoes/black olives/garlic sautéed in oil + Parmesan (5g); kale sautéed in butter and oil (3g); 3 c. water
Comments:
Another huge hit with the hubby; will be adding this to regular rotation. I sliced up some very thin chicken medallions, pan fried them about 4 mins/side until brown on medium high heat, then mixed about 1/2 can diced tomatoes, drained; handful of chopped black olives; about 1 clove minced garlic; 1 t. dried parsley; and olive oil. I sautéed that briefly, drained, and coated the tops of the medallions, then broiled about 4-5 mins.

============================

Friday 04/19/13: ~12g

Breakfast:
1/2 Parmesan chicken breast (0g); 18 oz coffee with 1 T. cream (1g); 3 c. water; pills

Snack: 1/2 srvg. barbecue pork rinds (0g); 3 c. water

Lunch: planned: Scrambled eggs and sausage (5g); 3 c. water

Dinner: planned: Rumaki (3g); sautéed kale (3g); 3 c. water
Comments:
May treat myself to an after-dinner Mounds pie (Atkins-friendly, of course!), since I am low on carbs today and have a little wiggle room. I will also try to up my veggie count for the day, first, since I am back from the store just this morning and have some stuff to work with.

    Hi, Anne! Never, since I started tracking about 2 months ago. At most, if hubby feels like cheeseburgers instead of hot dogs, I might switch two nights up, or if we eat all of something one night for dinner, I may have to sub in something else (not leftovers) the next day, but that's about it. This is mostly just to help me remember what is coming up so I can get it thawed/prepped in time, and of course to keep an eye on the carb counts.

Edit: Oops, looks like I'm now changing it up a lot more regularly from my plan, so I guess never say "never"! Still, it's a good guideline to help me when I go shopping for the week.
