Menu Plan Monday

Although it's late in the day, this post is still happening!
Today marks a turning point for me. I have decided that I'm going to eat more fruits and veggies in an attempt to lose weight. There, I said it! To tell the truth, I hardly eat any veggies, and few fruits if I'm revealing all. If I could sum up my eating habits in one word, it would be CARBS!

Weight Watchers has worked for me, but still, I find that I'm eating few veggies. Eventually, the whole thing grows tiresome and I fall off the wagon. So starting tomorrow, there's going to be a new breakfast and lunch menu (for me): Smoothies. After some reasearch today, tomorrow will find me in the grocery store buying fresh and frozen fruit and fresh green veggies, along with a few other ingredients. Below, you will see the smoothies I will incorporate into each day, except Sunday. The goal is to have a smoothie at breakfast (typically all fruit/protein) and one at lunch (here come the veggies), and then eat a regular dinner with the family. I will also try to do this on Saturdays, but I figured Sundays will be my smoothie-free day, unless I'm just absolutely craving one.

I'll report next week how this first week went, and if I'm totally going to chuck it out the window, along with the other 4 attempts with Weight Watchers! By the way, if you have any great smoothie recipes, please post them here!
