Well, I am now at the end of Week 2 of the "Get Forking Skinny Meal Plan" and it's time to check-in with my experiences this past week. It has been another good week! After Week 1, I wasn't sure if I had lost any weight or not, but was pleasantly surprised to be down by 2 pounds! This week, I can definitely feel a difference in my body! Again, I have not felt significant hunger with this meal plan, and have usually only wanted one snack per day.
As far as the meals, I have totally fallen for the Skinny PB&J Parfait! I am not that into sweets and am not a fan of yogurt or peanut-butter. However, I could eat this parfait every day for the rest of my life! It is delicious and filling and I'm so glad to have tried it. I also loved the Crock Pot Irish Oatmeal. I had some applesauce taking up valuable real estate in my fridge, so I used that instead of the apple. Also, since I am a new fan of chia, I added some to my oatmeal for the extra nutrition. I dished it up in individual containers and stored it in the fridge so it made for a great grab-and-go breakfast.
As for the dinner recipes, the Cheeseburger Salad is super fast to prepare and I didn't even miss the bun! The Vegetable Curry Laksa was a culinary adventure and totally off the radar from anything I would have ever decided to cook on my own. I will definitely be making this again! If you have never tried spaghetti squash before, you owe it to yourself to try the Crock Pot Italian Meatballs & Sauce served over it - you will be pleasantly surprised!
What can I say - I don't have a bad word to say about any of the recipes on this week's meal plan and I can't wait to try whats on the menu next week! Even though it is my daughter who is coming up with all this deliciousness - I have been skeptical of many of her recipes in the past and have rolled my eyes countless times at the thought of them, but I am now totally on board! The best news is that I lost 3 pounds without suffering hunger and without exercising (though I will probably be adding some walking to my daily routine in the near future).
If anyone else has any comments on this meal plan I would love to hear what you thought and if you are enjoying it as much as I am!
