The menu is planned and posted on the fridge, the groceries have been bought and put away in a way that makes them easily accessible (I hope), and I`m ready for the week ahead.
Bagged salads were starting to get a bit expensive, and fresh produce is in season and cheap, so I bought a salad spinner and prepped a week`s worth of lettuce. It took about 10 minutes to wash, dry, and pack two heads of romaine, which came to $1.89. Worth the time, I think!
I`m trying something a little different this week. I read this book after reading about it on a few blogs. It`s basically a clean, low-carb (not no-carb), high protein diet. I can do anything for 17 days, right?
I'm going to try to post a daily recap of what I've eaten and how I've felt. The diet doesn't encourage intense exercise in the first 'cycle' but I'm not going to give up going to the gym.
