Meal Planning Monday

Apologies for the radio silence recently, but life has been hectic to say the least. Last week saw my youngest turn 9 and this week my eldest becomes a teenager. (He has been acting like one for the last 6 months so won’t come as a great shock.)

My youngest has been bust this weekend making a birthday cake for his big brother. Chocolate cake, with oreo buttercream. Perfect for our chocoholic.


I have spent the weekend eating way too many carbs for someone on a low carb diet and with a takeaway for tomorrow’s birthday celebrations being pizza it will continue. Come Tuesday I need to get back on it before I undo all the good work. I know it’s unlikely I will put on 13kg in a week, but it feels like I will. I also have to say it has made me realise how much better I feel when I eat low carb. I feel rather sluggish and bloated this weekend.

So what will we be eating this week, other than Dominoes?

Sausage and mash. Real comfort food and I can substitute potato for swede.

Tacos - or taco salad for me. I love the red onions soaked in lime and orange.



Chicken drumsticks with a Maggi BBQ coating. I haven’t tried this before but it looked nice.




Steak with pesto and rocket from Jamie Oliver’s 5 ingredients recipe book.

What will you be having this week?
