A long weekend of a carb junkie

Saturday, October 06, 2012

Yea! I want to spend some time this weekend planning ahead. I want to be sure to have meals planned for the evenings. We are coming home tired and eating way too many carb-laden dinners.

i am a carb junkie. I can't seem to live without them. I have tried Atkins and South Beach. I feel weak and dull. In tracking for about 3 weeks on SparkPeople, I am seeing a pattern - a very familiar one. Most of my days are half carbs. Now, mind you, some are good like bananas and whole grains. But many are not.

Anyway, I want to plan some meals that are higher in protein without using red meat too much. I stocked up on fresh broccoli and cauliflower, both of which I love, to fill in. Lots of greens were brought home like spinach and arugula as well as several lettuces.

So here I go. Trying to corral this carb craving animal!!

    One of my friends on Spark uses the plate method - one-half veggies, one-quarter carbs, and one-quarter protein. It seems pretty sensible to me. Also to use a smaller plate than usual.

    Good luck!!
