Meal Planning {Week of January 11}

Crock Pot Two Bean Veggie Chili |

Happy meal planning Sunday!

Week one of Laura’s January 21 Day Reset went OK. Monday I didn’t pack enough snacks for at work. I was ready to break into the chocolate drawer at work until I scavenged some fruit/nuts off a coworker. I also found that eggs and veggies does absolutely nothing for my appetite at breakfast. I was starving within an hour. I need some carbs! Some of the other reset participants and Laura suggested I try sprouted Ezekiel bread (since it’s sprouted), sweet potato or root vegetable hash, oatmeal or quinoa to go along with my eggs. I tried it one day with oatmeal on the side (since I love my oats). The hungry beast was tamed!

Other than the one day of starving at breakfast, it has gone well. I haven’t had any chocolate or coffee since Sunday. My whole point of the reset is to break the habit of reaching for snacky things (crackers, bread, etc) when I’m hungry. Instead, I’ve been reaching for veggies and hummus or fruit and nuts. I was seriously Jonesing for tortilla chips to go with my Two Bean Veggie Chili on Tuesday night. But it passed and I lived.

Here’s to week two!

Sunday – Fish tacos (didn’t make last week) + broccoli slaw

Monday – Avocado Egg Salad on Portobello Caps + roasted sweet potato fries

Tuesday – Butternut Squash Curry

Wednesday – Leftovers

Thursday – Crock Pot Chicken Fajita Bowls

Friday – Salmon + steamed veggies + quinoa

Saturday – Out

What are you having for dinner this week?

  1. Now that our company is gone I am starting a 21 day reset myself, my goal will be to stop reaching for the coffee every time I want something warm, trying to switch to warm lemon water. Much better for me! hehe good luck with the rest of the reset, by your 3rd week I am sure you will be doing better than you ever could have imagined! The avocado egg salad in the mushroom caps sounds amazing! Have a great week!

  2. I’m really only cooking twice this week, because I know I will have heaps of left overs.
    I do plan on making a chicken pot pie for tonight.
    A chicken curried salad.
    And zucchini boats, which reminds me I have to get some zucchini’s cause they didn’t have any at the supermarket yesterday.

  3. I cannot do chili without tortilla chips on top! You must have some strong will power ๐Ÿ™‚ We had crockpot cinnamon apple pork Sunday (eh it was not flavorful), chicken chili yesterday (yum!), will have chicken sausage with rice/veggies tonight, tomorrow I’m making cheeseburger “hamburger helper” from scratch with salad (request from my husband), Thursday is dinner at my parents, and Friday we’re going out for my Moms birthday dinner. I’ve been trying to do healthy snacks as well but we have some not as healthy stuff in the basement we need to get rid of first – I tend to over shop sales sometimes. So it’s been a combo of 1-2 healthy and 1-2 not as healthy snacks day for me, but baby #2 definitely craves the sweets ๐Ÿ™‚
