This is my goal for today. If I don’t meet my goal, I’ll update this page to reflect what I did differently. On a side note, the sodium for this menu is way higher than I prefer, so that is something I will work on in the future.

  1. What a good idea! making a daily menu. Can I use pineapple from a can that’s packed in juice? I might just follow you on this daily menu idea, It certainly would be a more accurate way of logging what I do eat and being more accountable

  2. Absolutely. Juice pack canned pineapple would be great. Planning ahead makes my food plan far more accurate. It’s a pain in the neck, but it’s worth it.
