Planning for Success
As requested, here's the menu for the upcoming week:
Saturday - fresh fish something and unusual vegetable something. This will be whatever appeals to me today as I move through my hunting/gathering excursions.
Sunday - Grilled pork chops with a green vegetable of sorts.
Monday - Feta and sun-dried tomato stuffed chicken breast with Indian okra
Tuesday - Middle Eastern Lamb with cucumber salad
Wednesday - Italian Chicken and Chickpeas
Thursday - Roasted peppers, vegetables leftovers and whatever stuffed in a pita for Bick, over baby spinach for me
Friday - every man for hissownself - I've got a meeting in town.
More notes on food-
I am fortunate in that I can tolerate and sometimes actually prefer "the same old thing" for breakfast. Through the week, my breakfast consists of 2 hard boiled eggs that I take to work and eat at my desk. My lunch is pretty much always leftovers from the night before. We purposefully cook proportions that allow for both of us to bring leftovers to work. I also pack an afternoon snack of 2 hard boiled eggs that I eat around 3:30 or 4pm. This extra protein boost lets me last until dinner time, without (pretty much) devouring the fridge when I walk in the door after work. I call that time the witching hour and it's the most difficult time of the day for me, eating wise. I probably am eating too many eggs, but they just work so well for transport and I do much, much better on a diet with a higher protein content, lower carb count.
One more cuppa coffee, then I'm off to the gym today. I'm getting a late start today, as I did not sleep well last night. I do believe with every ounce of my being that Bick was fighting invading space aliens in his sleep last night. I think he kicked a hole in the mothership. Rat Bastard.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Make decisions when it's easy.
