I was shocked when I asked Tony what he felt like for dinner and he said pizza!Β  We only had pizza a couple of times during lent because he isn’t a fan of no meat on pizza!

But first I have a bit of advice for you on how to make good coffee.Β  Turns out you have to put the top on the carafe before pressing the start button – otherwise you’ll get this:

And coffee grounds everywhere!

Okay, I was really grasping at straws to put together my breakfast and lunch yesterday – can’t wait to meal plan and do a decent grocery shop! πŸ˜€

Breakfast was 3 ounces of shredded potatoes, 1 oz. ham, 1/2 oz. mozzarella cheese, handful of baby spinach and wrapped in a low carb tortilla:

With some of the sweetest blackberries I’ve eaten all year!

Breakfast: 386 calories, 48 carbs, 23 protein, 11.7 fat and 5.5 fiber

And lunch was more hash!Β  Sauerkraut, shredded potatoes, Easter ham, cheese and diced apples all mixed together – while it doesn’t look pretty, I loved the balance of the sauerkraut with the sweet apples and salty ham.Β  I had a slice of sourdough bread on the side.

Lunch: 335 calories, 49 carbs, 18 protein, 6.9 fat and 4.5 fiber

Reason 1,050 Tony loves me! He buys me stuff off the $1 rack!Β  I am going to see if I can come up with a grilled orange pepper soup and I am going to make chile rellenos casserole for my lunch next week. πŸ˜€

Hannah and Tony split a meatza pizza – I know, it’s weird – Hannah normally doesn’t like meat, but she doesn’t mind it on pizza!Β  They had bacon, Italian sausage, pepperoni and green olives.

The meatza pizza done πŸ˜€

My pizza: 6 ounces of dough, 1 ounce Italian sausage, 1/2 oz. bacon, 1/2 oz. of pepperoni, orange pepper and sliced fresh jalapeno πŸ˜€

I ate my whole pizza!Β  Dinner: 859 calories, 90 carbs, 39 protein, 40 fat and 4.7 fiber.Β  I am going to ignore the fact that 61% of my calories came at dinner! πŸ˜€

And Tony bought some cool drinks – I had one after dinner – its a slightly sweet Italian spumante – yum!

Stats for Friday:

  • 45 minute walk at lunch
  • average blood sugar: 148
  • 1550 calories, 187 carbs, 81 protein, 54 fat and 14.7 fiber

Veronica left a comment on my last post – check out all her great Mexican recipes!Β  I may have to make some next week! πŸ˜€

And while I don’t make sweets very often, pretty sure Beth’s homemade peanut butter cups are insulin worthy!

This is definitely going on my menu – Amy’s Herb and Balsamic Steak Kabobs – yum!

I also plan to make Cory’s Green Salad with Peanut Dressing – but add some grilled chicken for more protein.

What’s on your menu next week?

Not sure what the plan is today – other than I plan on hitting the gym and reorganizing my kitchen gadgets – it’s getting out of hand!Β  Enjoy your Saturday!
