My Sugar Free Meal Plan For February 11th – February 17th!

My Sugar Free Meal Plan For February 11th - February 17th!

Here’s my meal plan for this week!  This week there are a few deals that I’m going to be sure to do.  First of all, Kroger has Starkist tuna on for $.50 a can and Bird’s Eye frozen veggies for $1.00 a bag.  Both of these are stock up prices so I will be getting a few weeks worth.  Also Safeway has Ragu sauce for $1.25 a jar from 12th-14th and there is a $.75 Ibotta rebate that will make the first jar $.50.  Most of their white sauces are made without sugar and is a great excuse to whip up some Chicken Alfredo over Spaghetti Squash.

 

Thursday February 11th

Fajita Meat with grilled onions and peppers and homemade guacamole

Friday February 12th

Tuna Patties (Never made this before, We will see how it turns out!)

Saturday February 13th

2/10 Weightloss Wednesday: 17 Lbs Down!

2/10 Weightloss Wednesday: 17 Lbs Down!

It’s Weightloss Wednesday!  The scale read 292.9 this morning so that’s a hair over 17 lbs gone since the first of the year, which is encouraging because I haven’t really had the ability to exercise for the last 2 weeks because of some family issues.  That’s great because it reinforces my opinion that exercise is a poor way to lose weight and  what you eat is more important than what you physically do.  Not that you shouldn’t exercise, it’s just that weightloss isn’t much of a benefit of exercise.

My Sugar Free Meal Plan for January 28th- February 3rd!

My Sugar Free Meal Plan for January 28th- February 3rd!

Not a great week for fantastic dinner deals at the supermarkets this week.  The only thing that looks halfway interesting is the deal on Pork Loin at Kroger but we are still eating the leftovers of the one I cooked last week.  This is a fantastic week for soup like this one for Progresso and this one for Bear Creek but the chances of finding anything sugar free in there are pretty slim.  I guess I need to do a What’s Sugar Free in Soup post so I can get to the bottom of that.

Fortunately, I can always find great deals on hamburger meat and I have like 3 whole chickens in the bottom of my freezer I need to do something with.  Here’s my sugar free meal plan for the week of January 28th- February 3rd!

Thursday January 28th

Taco Salad with my Sugar Free Taco Seasoning and my Fire Roasted Salsa

Friday January 29th

Stuffed Bell Peppers with some steamed green beans

Saturday January 30th

Chili – A very easy crockpot recipe that I will definitely put on the blog someday soon.

Sunday January 31st

I’ve been wondering what would happen if I brined an entire chicken like this and then put it in the crockpot for a few hours.  This is the day I find that out.

Monday February 1st

Chicken Parmesan with Parsley with some roasted Brussels Sprouts

Tuesday February 2nd

Chicken Fried Steak – I’ve experimenting with different gluten free flours trying to find a grainless way to make pepper gravy.  So far I’ve found that Almond Meal works great to coat the steaks but won’t make the gravy and Coconut flour will make the gravy but the gravy is sweet.  I bought a tapioca flour blend that I’m going to try this week.  We will also be having steamed green beans and carrots with this.  Although, I might see if sweet potatoes are on sale anywhere and sub in a baked sweet potato for the veggies.

Wednesday February 3rd

Grilled Pork Chops with grilled corn on the cob and sauteed onions

1/27 Weightloss Wednesday – 11 Lbs Down!

1/27 Weightloss Wednesday - 11 Lbs Down!

It’s Weightloss Wednesday!  The weight is still continuing to slowly come off and I’m down to 289, which is nice because I got to see that middle number change to something that isn’t a 9.  My weight fluctuated quite a bit this week because I over ate on Saturday.  I have known that my night time snacking was probably getting in the way of my weight but because of my weight going up on Saturday, I decided to do an experiment where I cut out the nuts I normally eat around 9 PM and just had a glass of water and in 2 days I went from 294 to 189 which was pretty darn amazing.

In fact, it was so eye-opening that I’m going to severely restrict what I eat at night for the next week and see what happens.  I do love my nighttime almonds but if it speeds this process up, I’m willing to do it.

Before we get into the breakdown of what is Sugar Free at Chick-Fil-A, we need to commend them for doing an incredibly rare thing in the fast food world.  You can go on the Chick-Fil-A website and see actual ingredients for all of their products.  Let me tell you, that is amazing and something I believe all chain restaurants should be forced to do.  I’m not sure why the food on the supermarket shelves gets an ingredient breakdown but the food at restaurants doesn’t.

Now on to the bad news, there’s not a ton that’s Sugar Free at Chick-Fil-A but at least there is something in each category so you do have a few options when you go there.  A few things you need to be aware of, the sausage has dextrose in it which is a sugar that contains no fructose so it is on our acceptable sugars list; keep that in mind if you are cutting out glucose as well as fructose.  While not technically fuly keto, I’m going to go ahead and include it on the list because it has such a small amount.  Also, the grilled chicken for the Grilled Chicken Sandwich and the Grilled Nuggets has a seasoning that is typically added before cooking that contains sugar, if you ask them to cook your chicken without that seasoning, they will but it will take a few minutes longer than normal to get your order.  Also, about the only thing you could dip it in is yellow mustard.

I think the real shocker here is that Chick-Fil-A doesn’t have a sugar free salad dressing on the menu so unless you love dry salad, I would avoid it or bring your own from home.  If anyone from Chick-Fil-A ever reads this, this is a huge hole in your menu that really needs to be addressed.

So let’s take a look at What’s Sugar Free and Keto Friendly at Chick-Fil-A!

Main Dishes

  • Grilled Chicken Sandwich (Order without seasoning, bun or dressing)
  • Grilled Nuggets (Order without seasoning)

Side Dishes

  • Side Salad  (No Dressing)
  • Superfood Side (Without the maple vinaigrette dressing)

Breakfast

  • Sausage Breakfast Burrito  (Sausage Contains small amount of Dextrose)

Beverages

  • Diet Lemonade
  • Diet Soft Drinks
  • Unsweet Tea
  • Coffee
  • Milk

So that’s it, at least we have a few options.  You can find the Chick-Fil-A ingredients list here and find my full list of What’s Sugar Free at Restaurants here.
