What's for Dinner Menu Plan - Nutrition Info Now Included

Well, it's back to school for us the week. I've done a good job so far sticking to my healthier eating plan. Using SparkPeople to track my calories has been very helpful. You will notice that on my recipes that nutrition information is now included. I use the SparkRecipes site to calculate that info. Like I said last week, I'm still making the same family friendly meals that I always have, but I'm trying to be more conscious of my portion sizes, I'm not eating "seconds" and I'm not eating huge desserts or snacks.

Just in case anyone is interested, I'm going to post my breakfasts and lunches this week. I know my mom is also trying to watch what she is eating, so maybe she and other will find this additional info useful. I don't know if I will always post this, but if you find it helpful, let me know.

Here's this week's menu. For more menu ideas, go to orgjunkie.com. Enjoy and have a great week!

Just wanted to say thanks for taking the time to comment on my Not to Do List post. Sparkpeople is awesome, I'm sure you'll do great.

You're menus are fantastic too--I like that you have the calorie content listed. I plan to start checking in regularly since one of my Not To Do's was filling myself full of junk(fast food) any more, I have got to start cooking and planning my meals a bit more.

I am absurdly excited about the fact that you are now posting nutritional information on your site--THANK YOU! Your meals always looks soooo delicious--flavorful, but not necessarily difficult--I've already bookmarked three new ones since the beginning of the year!
