    Thanks for starting the thread, Pen Pin! Here's my mealplan for the week. It really does help me keep track of things:

    Monday: Thai Prawn Curry with Noodles or Rice (DH can choose)
    Tuesday: At Mum's
    Wednesday: Omelette or HM Pizza (DH can choose)
    Thursday: Cheese & Bacon Pancake Bake
    Friday: Uncertain, but I fancy steak.
    Saturday: HM Pizza (if we don't have it earlier in the week. If we do, it'll be lasagne)
    Sunday: Sausage stuffed chicken thighs with mash, veg & gravy

    Breakfasts will be cereals or HM breakfast bars (recipe from Nigella Express), and snacks will be fruit or yoghurts. The same for dessert, actually, although there are some small apple and blackberry crumbles in the freezer if we fancy a hot pud.

    Have a good week, everyone.

    Hi all. I have just been diagnosed with high blood pressure (actually, scarily high blood pressure) after visiting the doctor with suspected tonsillitis ... Methinks it is time to lose some weight, reduce my alcohol consumption and generally up the intake of fruit & veg & grains (the DASH diet). So, this meal plan is a bit different from usual and it includes some meals I don't usually include. The main difference with the main meals is the extra fruit I'm trying to cram in, and also a lot less cream/butter/pastry.

    Thurs: lunch - poached eggs on toast; snack - pear & banana smoothie; dinner - teriyaki tuna with soba noodles and courgette & spinach salad; snack: chopped apple & nuts

    Friday: breakfast - bircher muesli, orange juice; snack - peanut butter sandwich, apple; lunch: tabbouleh and (bought) roast beef; dinner: beef casserole, roast veg mash

    Saturday: breakfast - bircher muesli, orange juice; snack - carrot & celery sticks, low fat hummous; snack - banana & mango smoothie; dinner: rest of beef casserole, baked potato, mixed green veg

    Sunday: breakfast - poached egg, mushrooms & tomato, 1 slice toast; lunch: hm prawn & coconut laksa with added bok choy; snack: banana & mango smoothie; dinner: roast lamb, roast potato, roast parsnips, roast carrots, gravy, baked apple & greek yoghurt for dessert

    Monday: breakfast: granola with added fruit & yoghurt, juice; snack: carrot & celery sticks with low fat hummous; lunch: hm vegetable soup, hm cheese scone with low fat spread; dinner: leftover roast lamb with tabbouleh, fruit yoghurt

    Tuesday: no breakfast as blood test; snack: chopped apple & mixed nuts; snack: carrot & celery with low fat hummous; lunch: hm vegetable soup, hm cheese scone with low fat spread; dinner: grilled mackerel with hm gooseberry sauce, new potatoes, green veg, fruit yoghurt

    Wednesday: breakfast: poached egg on toast, juice; snack: fruit salad; lunch: green bean frittata, tomato salad, slice bread & low fat spread; dinner: Moroccan spiced chicken breasts, carrot, red cabbage & onion salad, couscous, poached pears

    Thursday: breakfast: granola with added fruit & yoghurt, juice; snack: cucumber & vegemite sandwich with a little grated cheese; lunch: green bean frittata, tomato salad, slice bread & low fat spread; dinner: vegetable fritters with poached eggs, fruit crumble with greek yoghurt

    Friday: breakfast as Thursday; snack: chopped fruit with nuts; lunch: lentil salad with leftover chicken from Wednesday; dinner: vegetable & bean chilli with brown rice

    It sounds rather a lot of food!
