Linking up with Emily after taking a week off from the blog!
Last Monday, I started a 30 day transformation (no cheats + exercise), so I have a full blown meal plan for the entire month. With that said, I do not have much planned for eating from pinterest this month. I am, however, going to try to find something similar on pinterest that would serve the purpose!
Shake Day :)
B- steel cut oatmeal with a scoop of protein powder
S- Greek Yogurt with Xypstick
L- Chicken Salad (Chopped grilled chicken, a little greek yogurt, a little jalapeno, a little dijion mustard)
all served in a romaine lettuce cup
S- Lean Shake
D- Grilled Pork Chop and Grilled Zucchini Salad (I will probably make the following with a drizzle of this yummy Ranch Vinaigrette).
B- Shake with banana
L- a version of the below... this is my least favorite meal. it will be hard to eat, but I can also have salsa and a little bit of cheese, so I may use grilled chicken and mix it all up and make it like a taco bowl or something.
D- Grilled Steak and a Salad
B-2 boiled eggs and a piece of wheat toast
L- Grilled Chicken Salad
D- Grilled Steak with Parmesan Asparagus :)
B- Wheat Toast with Almond Butter
D- Pork Chop with Kale Salad
B- Oatmeal with Lean

D- Grilled Chicken Salad
Bring On Week 1! Ready to Kick Butt!!

One thing miss is good chips! I love Cheetos, sun chips, and I really miss "hot chips and cheese," but none of those are low carb friendly on my xyngular diet, so I had to come up with some substitutions.
The first one is my Low Carb Chips and Dip. Just baking pepperoni gives you a nice crispy snack with a lot of flavor!
The second is new to me. I've mentioned before that I am super picky!! I am trying to test something new once a week. A few weeks ago, that was zucchini! It really has no flavor and works perfectly as a chip for salsa (and hummus if you like it).
The third chip substitution comes from the Louisiana Bride Blog. It's her BBQ Kale Chips. I don't know how to put into words how great these little things are!!!
I am always open to other substitutions, so if you have any, please share!!!

I'm linking up a little late in the day with Emily... I couldn't get the link to work for me today!
I'm a little late today. I spent the day wedding dress shopping with my friend Katie! After 6 hours, she finally said yes to a dress!!!
I didn't cook the pizza and breadsticks Sunday, so I will cook those tomorrow!
I will be eating leftovers on Wednesday because I am going home for a few days, and I need to clean out the fridge.

1/2 C Stone Ground Mustard

Stir ingredients until combined
Serve hamburger on a bed of spinach (and jalapenos if you like heat like I do!).
Top with cheese, bacon, and honey mustard sauce.
Serve with sweet potato fries.

I never though I was a big carb person- other than pasta- until I started a low carb diet. It sort of just slapped me in the face. One of my favorite things is crescent rolls. Last year (probably where the extra 20 lbs came from), I really became obsessed with these little things. It was definitely a staple for the last year. I have a million recipes that I could share with these little delicious things, but I could only find 2 different pictures, so I will share two instead of a million.
Stuffed Pizza Rolls
These are super, super easy!!! Perfect party food or a quick dinner! They are also kid friendly!
1 Roll of Crescent Rolls
4 Mozzerella (or cheese of your choice) String Cheese Sticks
Pepperoni (I used the really big ones)
Marinara Sauce (or ranch)
Roll out the crescent rolls. Place pepperoni on each roll. Cut cheese stick in half. Place a piece on top of pepperoni. Roll crescent roll up.
Bake for 8 minutes on 350. Dip in sauce!
Buffalo Chicken Roll Up
4 Grilled Chicken tenderloins, cut into pieces
1/4 cup of buffalo sauce, plus 2 tbsp.
1/2 cup sour cream
ranch seasoning packet (1/2 of it)
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 roll of the crescent roll sheets
Put chicken and buffalo sauce in a bowl, and let the chicken absorb the sauce.
In a bowl, mix 2 tbsp of of buffalo sauce with ranch mix and sour cream.
Spread over the unrolled crescent roll sheet.
Place chicken over sour cream mix.
Top with shredded cheese.
Carefully roll the log.
Bake on 350 for 18-20 minutes.
