I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and fun Black Friday Weekend. Are you shopped out yet? I did some shopping but I still have a bunch more to do. One of my goals for next year is to have Christmas shopping completely done by October 1st. Yes I know I can Black Friday has great sales like I’ve said many times my goal moving forward is to truly enjoy the holidays. I don’t want to stress about gifts. Instead I want to create memories and enjoy my time with family and friends.
But speaking of sales I just want to mention again that 2 big sales are ending today. First, Plan to Eat is offering 50% off their annual membership. After discount the price comes to $19.50 for the entire year. This is such an amazing price. If you’ve been thinking about using Plan to Eat I highly recommend snatching this price up now. After today, it won’t be this low again until next year.
Second, my ebook Organize Yourself Skinny is on sale for 50% off! I put my ebook on sale twice a year and this is one of those times. After the discount you get the Organize Yourself Skinny Ebook and bonus 4-week make-ahead meal plan for only $4.99. Yup! A steal! Use code bfoys to get the discount.

I know you’re getting inundated with sales but if a healthy lifestyle is on the list for 2017 then both of these resources will be a huge help to you.
Okay, let’s talk about my meal plan. Two words can describe my food this week, simple and low-carb. I have a fancy holiday party to go to soon and other events to attend. I bought a GORGEOUS dress for the fancy one and I can’t wait to wear it sooooo this girl needs to keep carbs in check. I swear once I hit 40 carbs just make me bloat like a balloon. The other events are not as dressy but I still like to look my best when I venture out in something other than a hoodie and jeans. Plus, if I eat smart when I can then I won’t feel guilty about an extra glass of wine or piece of cheese.
For breakfast I made a low-carb egg bake with greens and chicken sausage. This is good and I’ll have the recipe posted on Wednesday. For lunch I made my “no may0” tuna salad wrap using a low carb wrap and packaged it with tomatoes and carrots. I’ve tried many low-carb wraps and my personal favorite is one by Father Sam’s. I plan to eat both all week. I know breakfast and lunch are the same this week but that’s how I keep it simple. I will switch things up with dinner and snacks.
For snacks, I have siggi yogurt, apples, almonds, and cottage cheese.
For dinner, I ordered 3 meals from Hello Fresh that are coming in the mail tomorrow. They were suppose to come on Saturday but with the holiday it got bumped to Tuesday. My meals this week include Thai Beef Skewers, Crispy Cheddar Cheese Burger, and Spanish Style Spaghetti with Shrimp and Chorizo. I know these are not very low-carb but I plan to eat mostly the protein and keep the carb part to a minimum. If you want to try Hello Fresh you can use my link to get $40 off. If you’re not sure whether Hello Fresh is for you then read my review. I share who I think Hello Fresh would be great for and who shouldn’t even waste their money.
The rest of our dinners include a new red clam sauce recipe and a taco salad. The taco salad is going to be a cross between a taco dip and salad. Either way it will be low carb and delicious. Yes I know clam sauce with pasta is definitely not low carb but I’m making it for a brand I’m working with so that’s why it’s on the menu this week. Plus, the rest of my meals are carb-controlled during the day so I’m not worried.
Here’s my meal plan on Plan to Eat. Since my egg bake recipe this week is new I put my broccoli and cheese egg bake into my meal plan calendar, then I updated the ingredients in the grocery list.
Chicken Sausage and Greens Egg Bake – new recipe
- The egg bake was made today and will be stored in the refrigerator all week.
