Low Carb Menu Plan for the week

If I don’t plan on the weekend, I’m scrambling all week to feed my family dinner.  And it’s especially difficult when you are keto.  I talk to more and more people who are starting down the low carb path, so I figured I’d share what works for us.  Recipes we are trying, how kid-friendly recipes are and what changes we made.

Usually my plans change during the week, depending on our activities and things that pop up, but I try to adhere as closely as possible to the menu.

So for this upcoming week, here’s my menu:

Monday – leftover burgers from our picnic yesterday (using lettuce as a wrap for the low-carbers) and low carb cole slaw

Tuesday – quesadillas made with taco seasoned ground beef and cheese on a tortilla, and I’m going to make cheddar taco shells for us adults like these …ooohh or maybe NACHOS

Wednesday – a favorite of ours, Big Mac Pie

Thursday – I have leftover spaghetti squash made and frozen, so I’m going to make cheesy spaghetti squash and maybe use broccoli instead of the spinach

Friday – Pizza Day! I’m going to make Zesty Chicken Pizza from The Ketogenic Cookbook  …the kids will get regular pizza from the dough in a can but I’m hoping they’ll try it!

Ok that’s the plan…here’s hoping

How Mommy Gets Her Exercise In

Of course, there’s still the “Mommy go faster!” and “You’re done already?” But at least I got something of a workout in on the treadmill! Plus they were so excited and actually thanked me for bringing them down in the basement while I worked out.

LOL it’s the little things.

My (Belated) Mother’s Day Post

I had a wonderful day with my family and I hope all of you did too.

Of course, the days after Mother’s Day are then extra busy, aren’t they?

So what does a mom with 5 kids, 8 pets, 2 in-laws and 1 husband get for Mother’s Day????

Why, a brand new wine fridge in her bedroom, of course! #besthusbandever
