Meal Planning Monday (18th June 2012)

Sorry, I am a little late putting up the Meal Planning Monday post today. I've been caught up doing grocery shopping in Waitrose this morning and have finally sat down with a cup of tea!

Has anyone found summer yet? No? I just looked at the forecast and it appears this rain is here until the weekend at least. I'm totally fed-up of it now. I'm such a summer sunshine girl and this weather has really dampened my spirits recently.

In other news the dieting went okay last week. I weighed myself this morning and had a 1.5lb weight loss, which isn't radical by any means but it's going the right way huh? Especially as I had Dominos pizza on Friday, a big steak dinner yesterday and wasn't exactly low-carbing for the past few days. I'm happy with that weight loss as I've always been told a healthy loss is 1-2lb per week.

This weeks sees me trying to carry on as I've started - low-fat breakfast and lunch with a relatively healthy dinner with minimal carbs on the side. I just can't resist a bit of potato, bread or rice so I'm just trying to have a tiny amount.

This weeks plan looks like this;

Chicken fajitas
Chicken salad with a citrus chilli dressing
Vegetable balti (leftovers from last week)
Soup & bread

and one night I am eating out. I have the recipe for vegetable balti to post this week, it was an old WeightWatchers recipe so a good one if you're dieting!

The Linky is below so please add your meal planning posts! Look forward to seeing what you are cooking up.


  1. That's a fab loss, well done you! And good luck for the week ahead.


  2. We have summer 'ish' here today so will send some your way. It's sunny as I planned soup for tonight!!! Hope you enjoyed your cup of tea :-)
