Menu Plan by reader Linda from Bellevue, WA.
I love to read, cook, eat, and spend time with my family. I’m a self taught cook. My mom did not enjoy cooking and probably hoped I would have a chef when I got older. I’m always learning how to improve my skills.
We’re a household of three adults: my husband, my dad, and me. My Dad is a diabetic so most of my meals are low carb (under 50 carbs a meal). We’re also trying to eat more whole foods. I work full-time, so I also love quick meals and my Crockpot. I also love to save money by buying in bulk.
Here’s what’s for dinner at my house this week:
- Breakfast: Hard boiled eggs, Blueberry Muffins, sliced apples
- Lunch: Ham and cheese wraps, 1/2 baked sweet potato
- Dinner: Hamburger Stroganoff served with either quinoa or quinoa pasta, steamed green beans
- Breakfast: Greek yogurt with Maple Cluster Granola
- Lunch: Leftover stroganoff over 1/2 baked sweet potato
- Dinner: Spicy Lemon Garlic Shrimp, Kale Salad (top with avocado slices and hemp hearts, dress with grapeseed oil, apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, and orange juice)
- Breakfast: Breakfast burrito with ham, sliced apples
- Lunch: Tuna salad pita sandwiches
- Dinner: Lime And Coconut Chicken served over mashed cauliflower
- Breakfast: Hard boiled eggs, blueberry muffins, oranges
- Lunch: Leftover Lime and Coconut Chicken over quinoa, steamed green beans
- Dinner: Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy served over mashed cauliflower with green bean almondine
- Breakfast: Greek yogurt with granola
- Lunch: Egg salad pita sandwiches
- Dinner: Orange Glazed Turkey Meatballs, 1/2 baked sweet potato
- Breakfast: Bacon, eggs over easy served over rice
- Lunch: Crockpot Corn Chowder
- Dinner: Macadamia Crusted Mahimahi, Roasted Broccoli
Breakfast: Overnight Orange French Toast (combine 2 cups milk, 1/2 cup half and half, 1 cup white sugar, 1 Tbs vanilla extract, 1 Tbs orange extract, 6 eggs to make a custard, pour over sliced bread in a casserole dish. In the morning place in 400 degree oven for 35-40 minutes until cooked) drizzled with maple syrup
Lunch: Egg salad with pita chips, sliced apples

Muffins…granola…marmalade…a whole cup white sugar…maple syrup…I came for the falsely advertised diabetic-friendly meal plan and am sad to say I’m sorely disappointed.
This is a good meal plan for diabetics, but there are too many carbs for a weight loss plan.
