Menu Plan Monday {Low Carb Meals~ Wk 2}

Another week has come and gone. They seem to fly by so quickly these days! We had some gorgeous weather here in Aberdeen this weekend. The sun was shining; there was no rain or even clouds; and it was in the low 60's ;) We were happy happy people! So what did we do?! Go to the beach of course!
Yay! They ran for about 15 minutes til they were freezing
and wanted their sweatshirts back on ;)
My footprint and Maddy's 
Having a serious conversation about why we don't eat sand ;)

Oh and then we hung out on King's Lawn in the midst of the University Tim attends. 
Gorgeous! So Blessed!

A few musician's were practicing. The girls LOVED it!
They even let Maddy use their flute and play with them. It was so precious! 
The statue, 'Youth with split apple' commemorates the 500th anniversary
 of the very first students arriving at King's College in 1505.

Ok - and now my Menu plan for the week.... blah, blah, blah ;)

Menu Plan Monday {Low Carb Meals~Wk 1}

Hello Dear Friends, 

I couldn't believe it when I glanced at my blog and realized that it's been just about a month since I last posted! Things have gotten busy and well - I just wanted to live my life for a while instead of worrying about writing about everything I was doing. Ya know?! 

But to be honest, I didn't meal plan very well when I wasn't keeping myself accountable to you all and it really frustrated me and made my weeks and days feel frazzled. Did not like that part at all!

But I'm back at it and ready to go! For the next four weeks I am trying to make low carb meals. I am not against carbohydrates or anything, but I just know I lean on them WAY to much. So I am trying to just eat complex carbs in the morning with breakfast and then aiming to be low(er) carb the rest of the day. I found that I have eaten WAY more vegetables than I ever did before! I don't just lean on toast, granola bars, cereal, crackers, chips, pasta, and rice. 

So if you have any good low carb recipes to share with me PLEASE leave a comment with your link ;)

Have a Happy Monday!
