Getting back on track with nutrition

After spending the last few weeks indulging in decadent holiday food, it was time for some changes. Now don't get me wrong, I don't in any way regret my festival of treats this holiday season. I've never been the girl to shun a cheese tray in favor of veggie sticks; I flip past all of the articles about eating healthy during the holidays. I'm a little bit YOLO like that (insert grin). But back to the topic at hand...I knew my jeans wouldn't fit very long if I was eating big steak dinners followed by cake.

Last week, I was on a mission! I spent a bit of time planning some healthy meals for the week and then planned my grocery shopping accordingly. I'm pretty sure my fridge was 60% filled with produce. Here's my meal plan and some of the recipes from the week.

Sunday: Roasted Chicken with Zucchini and Rosemary from The Italian Diet cookbook

Monday: Vegetable fajitas with whole wheat tortillas

Tuesday: Pork tenderloin with a fig and herb glaze; sautéed green beans 

Wednesday: Baked lemon tilapia with steamed broccoli and brown rice 

Thursday: Lemongrass chicken and asparagus from the Williams-Sonoma Food Made Fast Weeknight cookbook

Friday: Date night out at our favorite tapas restaurant

How do you get back on track with healthy eating?


  1. The key to getting back on track is definitely planning meals! That's how I get back on track! Your menu sounds yummy!

  2. Getting back on track is never easy. But it sounds like you cooked some very tasty meals last week, which always makes it easier to get back at it.

  3. We have been eating super good food over! My husband has lost a lot of weight in one week and is looking super slim. I'll be posting recieps this week! We found an awesome broccoli recipe that we love!!

  4. This has been my problem as well. I've been finding it hard to get back on track but now that I'm feeling better and about to start running more I NEED to get back on track. I usually need to do a one week sugar detox to reset myself and then I'm usually good to go. That spaghetti squash pad thai sounds delicious!

  5. That Pad Thai looks amazing!

  6. Looks yummy. I love Pad Thai.
    I am snuggling to figure out how to get back on track now. I have continued eating like crap post holidays and it is making me feel like junk. I know I need to change.

  7. As my sugar intake decreased, the cravings decreased (yay). All your meals sound delicious - esp that pad thai.
