Menu Plan Monday: May 15-19, 2016

Happy Monday to all!

It's week #2 of our no/low carb menu planning and we've got some challenges....a house-guest and a night out.  The majority of our menu is obtainable and the choices that we make eating out may or may not be low carb.  In order to succeed, I know we have to be flexible.

Remember to check out Laura's site for more menu planning ideas.


Sunday: Chicken Taco Bar
Monday: Steak and Asparagus Stir fry with Brown Rice or NOT!
Tuesday Out!
Wednesday: Cheddar Chicken Bites with Brocolli
Thursday: Herb Salad with White Beans and Salmon

Carbs this week - 
It's hard to avoid tacos and the shells have carbs.  Limit to two tacos per serving.
Brown Rice is a healthy alternative (complex carbohydrate).  Serving size will be 1/2 cup or 22 carbs per serving.
Out? I will look for a salad option or lean protein
Cheddar Chicken bites have a small coating of Cheese-its. 27 crackers has 17 grams of carbs
Herb Salad - the only carb is the white beans, about 24 grams for 1/2 cup.
