What's for Dinner Menu Plan

Another week of healthy eating can go on the books this week. :) I started tracking my food on SparkPeople on December 22 and I'm down 5 pounds from that time! That's a great feeling. What I love is that I have realized that I don't have to "diet" and eat boring foods. I'm eating the same healthy meals I've always cooked, but I'm controlling the portion sizes. I'm even able to eat sweets, as long as I budget for them in my calorie count for the day. Life is good when you know you can still eat pizza and chocolate cake. :)

I got good feedback on including the nutrition values of my recipes. I'm glad that others are finding them useful. I will go ahead this week and post my breakfasts and lunches again. Let me know if that is useful to you as well.

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

Love your recipes...and love that you added the calorie count! That is extremely helpful. My husband and I together are trying to shed a few pounds and are doing so by counting calories!
