Bahama Mama's Challenge: Post pics of my food, or belly contents for this week

Saturday, June 02, 2012

Important to note that I have to cook and prep my meals for the work week on Sundays and cannot cook much anymore, so they do seem to repeat a lot.
I don't seem to mind much, and it seems to appease my mild case of OCD. : )
I've added in some magazine pages in the background where possible to add some flare, since my meals this week needed some...flare!

Monday through Friday Breakfast:
Egg beater pancake thing (no idea where I came up with this thing but it's yummy): baking powder, almond extract, ricotta cheese and (wait for it) egg beaters. Iced coffee.

Monday lunch for Meatless Mondays:
Gluten Free Oatmeal with protein powder and strawberries:

Tuesday through Friday lunches:
Butter lettuce, steamed broccoli, grilled asparagus, grilled chicken, trader Joe's balsamic dressing, a shot of lemon juice:

Snack #1:
Think Thin Bites 100 Cal Bar:

Monday through Wednesday Dinners:
Grilled eggplant, tofu shirataki noodles as no salt added marinara sauce:

Thursday and Friday Dinners:
Cucumber salad: Cucumbers, grilled fennel, grilled onions, low salt white beans, sun dried tomatoes (no oil), pesto (with oil), garlic.

Snack #2:
Greek Yogurt with cocoa powder and truvia sprinkled on top. YUM-EEEEE

And with that, I'm off to relax with my sleepy puppy Olive:

    Olive is precious! Your meal photos are inspiring me! I have discovered cocoa in yogurt all by myself, however! The omelet with the ricotta sounds delicious. Chris

    I must try the Greek Yogurt with Cocoa powder and stevia. Never heard of it, but I am always on a search for an ice cream substitute. Great post. Hope you are doing well.

    I tend to have similar foundation foods but I change the sauces. I've done the yogurt with cocoa powder, too. I've put cocoa powder in a lot of things, including cream of wheat! Mm.. thinking of grilled eggplant and dried tomatoes and....

    Keep up the good work!

    Oh thank goodness! As I scrolled down I hadn't read that part that said you were napping with Olive, I thought she was part of your menu!!
    It all looks really good, and such great choices! I have NO talent for menu creations. It is one place I wish I could get better!
    It all looks so good!
    Take care of you!
    Love you

    Very nutritious and creative, my dear. I must say, the yummiest, most delectable of all is your wee stuffed Olive.

    I've never heard of shirataki tofu noodles..do they taste good? I'm on a quest to find nutritious healthy food that actually tastes good.. Your meals are amazingly healthy. Very impressed with your prepping in advance strategy. Have a great weekend! emoticon

    It's so funny how much more you feel you know someone after you SEE their food. Did you find out any truths about yourself after posing food pics? Do you read interesting mags while you eat? Or do you enjoy meals with friends at work and dh at home? And I'm surprised you can eat hot food at night when Ethel is so...lurky.

    Your meals look so nutritious, you're such a good girl!

    Yum!! I hate yogurt , but I never thought of putting cocoa powder in it. I love the Think Thin bars but I never heard of Think Thin Bites. Where do you get them? Love the Magazines in the background, so posh!
