What's Cooking In My Kitchen

Our new eating style is going great! We are feeling good and I have lost 10 pounds already!

As you can see from this week's plan, we're still in a bit of a transition. I'm using the last frozen pizza kit this week, then it will probably be a while before I make homemade pizza again. For the record, I really really loved my pizza kits and highly recommend them as a frozen meal option.

I had a few odds and ends of leftovers in the fridge and frozen veggies in the freezer so I tried to account for them in this week's meal plan. It's good to use up the old before bringing in lots of new with grocery shopping for the new month!

I heart Costco!
 Yes, that is a box of 7.5 dozen eggs.
Breakfasts (6x): 
  • scrambled eggs plain, with spinach cooked in or sauteed peppers/onions or mushrooms on the side.
  • leftover stir-fry and rice (1 serving), leftover lentil casserole, leftover green beans (1 serving), leftover peas
  • leftover pizza, celery sticks, leftover peas, leftover mixed veggies
  • leftover lentil casserole, veggies
  • tacos in lettuce leaves ( taco meat, chopped tomatoes, shredded lettuce, chopped peppers, shredded cheese)
  • salad with lots of veggies, hard-boiled egg and leftover salmon (after this week's salmon dinner)
  • salad with beef and lots of veggies


  • sliced apple, peanut butter (2x)
  • yogurt, frozen berries
  • banana "ice cream"
  • green smoothie (2x)

Have you ever tried to make pizza using flat bread? Yum! I spread a little olive oil over the top and then add things like artichokes, asparagus, onion, and herbs. If you really like meat on your pizza add turkey pepperoni by Hormel. Turkey pepperoni is a delicious snack, too.

We have made flat bread pizzas. Yummy! With this change in our eating habits, we are avoiding all bread and wheat products, at least for the time being, though. So pizza will be a rare treat!

A few other folks have recommended the turkey pepperoni. I'll have to try it sometime!

Thanks for your comment!
