Hopefully I can remember to post this each weekend as I prepare to plan our menu for the next week.  I predict that I’ll do okay for a while.  Maybe I’ll go add it my calendar now so I don’t have an excuse!


  • Spiced Apple Pork Loin (6 carbs per serving)
  • Chicken Drumsticks marinating in BBQ sauce (approx. 7 carbs per serving)
  • 2 lbs. of ground beef
  • Frozen Meatballs
  • Turkey Burgers
  • A Whole Chicken (which I really hate cooking)
  • Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • Flounder Fillets

Possible Side Dishes

  • Tons of frozen veggies
  • Stove Top Stuffing (which was an actual Christmas gift from my husband’s grandparents)
  • Tator Tots
  • Russet potatoes
  • Salad
  • Ingredients from the Corn Chowder recipes that I never made.


Devyn is really into eating cereal for breakfast and for her bedtime snack.  Regular Cheerios, Rice Crispies and (I think) Honeycomb have been the ones that she can eat that keep her full and her levels in check.

I’ve been making scrambled eggs and grilled ham in the mornings for her brother’s and sister, and on those mornings I’ll have her eat a smaller serving of a sugarier cereal so that she can still get the protein from the eggs and ham.  It’s hard to get Devyn to eat a lot in the mornings, and she still needs to eat more right before school starts since it’s such a long time before Nutrition.  That’s usually the time of day that she’ll drop really quickly.


  • Peanut butter crackers
  • Sun Chips

I don’t track lunch since she buys at school every day.
