Here's what I have planned for the week! (Sorry - I have not been very good about posting my menus.)
I am trying some new things this week! My friend told me about hobo dinners - YUM!
Check out the recipes:
Quinoa Chicken Parmesan - this definitely required more time than I usually can stand devoting to dinner, but I made enough to eat on for several days and I was on fall break. I served it with tortellini and broccoli. I made my own sauce and shredded cheese from a block.
Pork Tenderloin - I am just baking a tenderloin with some seasoning on it. We'll have a veggie or two as our side.
Hobo Dinner - my friend Ronna was telling me about these. It sounds SO easy - add your meat and veggies in an aluminum foil pack and bake in the oven. It's like individual pot roasts. I'll definitely let you know how these turn out!
Grilled Cheese & Soup - I have found some great organic soups at Trader Joe's & even Kroger. I can pronounce all ingredients! Whole wheat bread & organic cheese - a delicious fall dinner.

It is so helpful to be able to look at your activity and see the patterns. I know that I definitely need to get up and move more during the work day.
I work so hard to make all 5 of those little dots light up (each dot = 2,000 steps - my daily goal is 10,000 steps). In the winter, my husband and I strapped on our tennis shoes and became mall walkers - just to get in my steps. It motivated my husband and he got a Garmin for his birthday!
I have a treadmill now - so that really helps me get those steps in quickly. I hated the treadmill at first, but now I hop on and read on my Kindle. I can make the font bigger so I'm able to read and walk, walk, walk! (I have come to terms with the fact that I am not a runner - I have had too many calf / back issues.)

I love seeing what others eat! It gives me new ideas on what I could make.
Breakfast - 3 scrambled eggs, 1 cup of strawberries, 1/2 cup grapes, and a few macadamia nuts. I also had a cup of coffee with a little Natural Bliss creamer.
Lunch - Whole wheat pita pocket (mini ones from Trader Joe's) with ham, cheddar cheese, tomato, spinach, and hummus! I also had a handful of almonds.
AppleGate is the cleanest deli meat I have found!
Dinner - Crockpot Chicken (recipe to come...), 1/2 sweet potato, and some spring mix with some White Balsamic and Honey dressing. I scavenged the dressing aisle for a long time and this was the best dressing I could find that I actually like!
Snack - Dark chocolate square and some pecan halves.
