I was inspired by an article on the Men's Health website, "Shop Once, Eat for a Week" (register for free to read the full, downloadable article in PDF form). I should mention this is an unsolicited reference. I don't have anything to do with the magazine, other than subscribing to their sister magazine, Women's Health.

I was already planning on grocery shopping today and had been feeling a little stagnant, so figured I'd give it a shot. I also have 1.3 pounds to go until I hit the 50 lb. loss mark, so a little shakeup is good. I'm not following it to a T (for one, I'm a woman with lower calorie needs than your average man), but did use it for some shopping inspiration and menu planning, beginning with dinner this evening.

Peanut butter (the natural kind) and sugar-free strawberry jam on high fiber, whole wheat bread

Glucerna shake

Afternoon snack:
Sugar-free, fat-free yogurt, a pear, and whole grain crackers

Chicken fajitas with onion, orange peppers and crimini mushrooms on white corn tortillas (2), topped with fresh tomatoes and plain, Greek yogurt
Vegetarian refried beans

Pineapple coconut yogurt (Light and Fit) with sliced banana

I went too low on the veggies today, but at least got some more fruit in before bedtime.
