Can you believe week eleven is ending?
I'm down another pound this week, so progress is staying about the same, steady! This week I was just using up some things I had in my pantry, waiting for my test run of a stricter Menu plan I will be following next week (starting Monday because of Easter Sunday).
The menu I used this past week is actually just a very very old menu plan that I have had since I first started the Trim Healthy Mama plan. I found it and had a lot of the ingredients so it just worked out to use it this week.
I was really busy working on a project to help fight childhood obesity, so I didn't take a lot of pictures of my meals, however, if you have any questions about this menu plan, please leave them in the comment section below. The page numbers refer to the original book, as the new cookbook was not yet in existence when I first created this plan. Also, note that a “protein fast” is not part of the Trim Healthy Mama plan, but something personal that I do from time to time and this week Sunday fell on Easter so it worked.

Intermittent fasting is good for healthy individuals but not recommended for those with blood sugar issues, thyroid problems or a sluggish adrenal gland.
On the day marked Low Carb Sushi, here's what I had from Whole Foods:

The No Carb Londoner Noodles are basically what Serene and Pearl call “Zoodles” which I've been eating since my Raw Vegan Phase. I just happen to enjoy this particular recipe concoction minus the part about cooking with Olive Oil, because you should never cook with olive oil no matter what Rachel Ray says.
Instead of the huge salad with boiled egg whites, I had two heads of cabbage I needed to use, so I actually just had the Coleslaw from the new cookbook plus a healthified deviled egg. You can see my recipe for this on myfitnesspal if you are on there. Basically, I just substituted 0% greek yogurt in place of the mayo then topped them with jalapeños. I call them Fage Eggs. 🙂
In addition, my daughter Ivy has been trying to help a few friends with their weight loss goals. She does a video series called Ivy Wants Food. This week she decided to do a video making my Chocolate Peanut Butter Ball Recipe! So, I had several of these treats. Check it out below:
Let's talk about it!
