I bought a pre-packed Caesar salad for 2 meals and added my own variations so see recipes.
I am not a huge fan of cereal or carbs in morning but there is only a little amount of cereal so I thought I would try it.
I am also planning on doing costings for each meal to show how cheap they are to eat healthy meals so stay tuned for that.
I did find my portions had gotten a little out of whack and it was through Lite N’ Easy program menu last week that helped me get back on track with them this week.
Total Cost Menu $15.69
Breakfast: Mini Wheats & Organic Peanut Toast
15g Mini wheats
1/2 Cup Heart Active Milk (reduces cholesterol)
1 Tb Organic Peanut Butter
1 Slice Soy & Linseed Toast
Pour mini wheats into bowl with milk and eat
Toast the slice then spread with peanut
Morning Snack : 1 Chobani Yogurt
Lunch : Caesar with Roasted Potato Salad
1 Caesar Salad Bag
1/3 Cup Roasted Potatoes (Precooked)
Optional : Add Boiled Egg Slices
Fruit : 1 Fruit Salad Cup
Make the Caesar Salad by emptying contents of the bag (Lettuce, bacon, parmesan, croutons and Caesar dressing) into large bowl and mix then divide into 2 serves
add the potato to the salad and mix well.
- I bought roasted potato in a container when I got the bbq chicken to save time of baking
- You can microwave it and cut into chunks for 6 minutes in microwave steamer
- You can roast it in oven with 1Tb olive oil for 20 minutes or until cooked through: Tip if you cut into chunks first it will cook a little quicker
Afternoon Snack : 2 Wholegrain Vitawheats, 1 Teaspoon Vegemite , 30g Dried Apricots
Dinner : Chinese Chicken & Cashews
