Diary of a DietBet: Day Four

One of my biggest challenges, weight loss or maintenance, is meal planning. I frequently create overly complicated meal plans that require too much weeknight effort. Knowing this, I approached the menu for my first week of the Diet Bet a little differently than I have in the past. I came up with the following guidelines for menu planning:
  • One protein a week (chicken, pork, fish, etc.)
  • Four accompanying sauces to maintain variety each week
  • One serving of frozen veggies with each meal
  • Sous vide is the preferred method of cooking
  • Homemade Pizza Fridays because pizza, duh.
  • Protein has to be present in every major meal of the day.
This week is chicken week and so far I'm pretty pleased with how it's gone. I even impressed myself by making two of the sauces and starting the sous vide while being the designated baby caregiver.
