The first few days of sugar-free August have gone well. I’ve been cutting back on sugar for some time, which helps. I find that cravings always hit in the evening, sometimes right after dinner.
I’ve gotten through the cravings with a little fruit and like to have a fruit smoothie in the evening with added protein powder. How is it going for those you who are joining me?
Here’s what we had for dinners last week. I hope it helps in your menu planning.
Rotisserie Chicken on top of Salad. The kids had potato chips with theirs. I get my chicken from BJ’s. Be sure to always read the ingredients. Some are labeled gluten free.
Ham Fried Rice & Quinoa, Salad – I used the leftover rice & quinoa to make a fried rice meal.
Hamburgers, Zucchini, Squash, Tomato & Corn Sauté – I used a lettuce wrap for my burger and sautéed the vegetables with coconut oil, basil and garlic.
Pizza on Udi’s Crust with Salad – Although I consider myself dairy free, I do use cheddar style goat cheese on pizza.
Leftovers – The weekends often end up being a time to eat leftovers. The kids are usually coming and going and often fend for themselves.
I didn’t make any desserts this week since I’m trying to be sugar free and low carb. I did make red pepper hummus and British pigs in a blanket. I used Applegate hot dogs rather than cocktail sausages.
