Exercise your mind and body


This is the template that I print out and write out my menu for the week.  It’s up on my fridge as we speak.  It’s a huge relief waking up knowing that my dinner is planned ahead of time.  Then comes the task of preparing it.

I’ve been asked what I have for breakfast and lunch so here’s just a few ideas.

Breakfast:
I usually have 1 of my homemade low carb muffins & coffee
1 pc Brancrisp bread with almond butter and sugar free jam
Ricotta and blueberries

    Lunch:
    I always have a protein (beef patty, chicken breast) & a salad on the side.

    Happy Low Carbing!!
