June Week 4 Meal Plans - Update

I continued the previous week's way of meal planning, listing meal possibilities rather than specific meals on a given day.  This worked out quite well, I think.  Here's how it all turned out:

Breakfast - Paratha and chicken curry (I think! Didn't write it down and have forgotten by now!)
Dinner - Rice and smoked sausage stirfry

Brunch - Scrambled egg with hash browns
Dinner - Rice and smoked sausage stirfry

Smoked Sausage Stirfry

Breakfast: Cheese and crackers
Lunch - Tuna salad and crackers
Dinner - Rice and sausage stirfry

Brunch - Chicken fried rice - rice, corn, some cut up rotisserie chicken, an egg, and peanuts
Dinner - Rotisserie chicken, corn, half a baked potato; peach

Brunch - Gyoza (chicken pot stickers), carrot sticks
Tea - Tuna salad on crackers; banana
Dinner - Leftover chicken fried rice

Breakfast - Half a banana and crackers
Lunch - Egg salad sandwich
Dinner - Paratha and keema curry; waffles and peaches for dessert!

Breakfast - Half a banana and crackers
Lunch - Rice, keema curry, dhal, pineapple curry

Rice and Curries

Dinner - Paratha and keema curry

I am still debating if I want to continue to make a meal plan for July.   But, I am pleased with how things turned out in June.  


  1. You are so disciplined and organized. Your diet sounds very healthy.

    1. Thank you, Stephenie. I try to be organized (not very disciplined, though!). As for my diet, I think if I posted all the snacks I eat, you will know it isn't all that healthy! Which is probably why I struggle with my weight.

  2. I think as long as you remember your meal plan is yours and subject to whatever you decided to do , on or off plan, then it could be fun to continue. If it upsets you to go off plan then maybe it is not a good idea. I personally really don't care a whole lot about mine. It is usually just a Monday morning idea that uses what I have on hand,. I am fickle so I rarely stay on it and never without changing things up a lot.

    1. Thanks, Anne. :) Having a plan with a specific meal listed by day wasn't as helpful to me as having a list of meal possibilities. It gives me more flexibility. So, I might continue to do that in July.

  3. I've given up with making detailed meal plans. I'm currently checking once a week and listing fridge items and/or freezer meals that need to be used up. Apart from that I just decide on the day, eating what I fancy. With the less frequent shopping opportunities, I have to choose from whatever is in the house and surprisingly, it's making things much easier.

    1. I tried the more detailed meal plans, but, that didn't work out too well for me, either. It was supposed to make it easier, but, I didn't always feel like cooking what was listed. The list of meal possibilities worked better; I think I will continue with it in July. I do want to try more bulk cooking and have ready prepared meals in the freezer, though, for those days when I just don't feel like cooking. :)

  4. Bless, I'm sure your snacking is disciplined as well, simply because you are unable to follow your cravings and pick up a little something, something on your way home. You can only snack on what is available in your house during this time. I am on keto as you know, and I consider myself disciplined. I have lots and lots of chocolate in my house (don't ask), but you won't find me eating it. HOWEVER, two nights ago I wanted something to snack on, so picture me sitting in front of the computer with a jar of almond butter in one hand and a spoon in the other. Ha,ha. But it worked. It filled the craving, and I didn't eat anything I wasn't supposed to.

    1. Thank you, Susan. Yes, you are right - I can only snack on what I have in the house, but, I've a lot of "bad for me" goodies stashed in the cupboard! :D Ooh, almond butter is one of my favorites! I don't have any, only peanut butter, which is good, too. And Nutella! My snacks are often crackers by themselves or with peanut butter, occasionally, cheese; homemade potato chips, nuts, sometimes candy. I like salty snacks, but, want sweet desserts. So far, however, I have avoided making cakes and cookies, although I made those zucchini muffins, earlier.
