Welcome back to week thirteen of the weekly menu plan!
A few weeks ago I mentioned that I was making an effort to lower my daily carbohydrate intake. Well a few weeks in I am happy to report it is all going well. I rarely eat bread, pasta and rice anymore (I make myself substitutes and can talk more on that in coming weeks) and although I do miss them at times, it is really not as bad as I thought it would be. Along with reducing carbohydrates, this way of eating promotes reducing sugar intake as well and really trying to include whole, fresh foods (aka. Veggies!). I am feeling pretty good about it all and have found that I am including more healthy fats in my food choices (olive oil, butter, avocado etc). One really surprising thing for me has been that I don’t need to snack as much as I used to. I can pretty much go from breakfast to lunch without eating again. I often need a 3pm little snack or coffee but then I am good until dinner. It’s been a nice change from someone who really did snack all of the time. I know not everyone wants to lower their carbs but I thought I would share my limited experience. The menu plan below can be for lower carb eating or you can always add bread, pasta and rice etc. So if your not low carb please don’t feel like these menu plans do not apply to you. With a few tweaks they can go either way!

Weekly Menu Plan

Sunday: Roast Pork – with roast sweet potato, brussel sprouts and steamed green beans and broccoli.
Monday: City Chicken – this recipe is going to be a hit with the little one!
Tuesday: Prawn pesto with pistachio and noodles – This one looks a little full on so if your not up for making your own pesto grab some shop bought pesto to go with the dish.
Wednesday: Sun-dried Tomato Cheesy Meatballs – served with spaghetti or spiralized zucchini (note in the recipe it says to add the juice of the sun-dried tomatoes. I found it to be really oily with the juices so you might want to skip it…)
Thursday: Steak with Creamy Mushroom Sauce – Served up with some steamed broccolini, carrot and zucchini.
Friday & Saturday: Take the night off, enjoy leftovers or if your like me some of your fav takeout meals
