On Saturday, I made a much needed trip to the grocery store. I ended up stopping at Kroger and Aldi. Both of these are a bit of a drive from my hometown, but it’s worth the extra time and distance to find more variety. Of course, my Aldi is in the middle of a remodel, so they will be closing soon for that to be completed. I am excited that they’re making the store larger, but I’m going to be a mess for the month that they’re closed. Where am I going to get cheap veggies and heavy cream?!
Nutritional information below is per serving, based on the information found on myfitnesspal.
Breakfast: Sausage, Bacon, and Egg Casserole
I’m a creature of habit. While I do like some variety in my food choices, there are some things I just really love. This casserole is one of them. It’s quick and easy to make. It reheats beautifully, and it keeps me on a full stomach until lunchtime. Next week, I promise I’ll force myself out of my comfort zone and try something new!

Lunch: Mushroom Cap Tacos & Chicken Fajitas
When I was younger, I thought I didn’t like mushrooms. As I got older and started cooking for myself, however, I quickly realized that I didn’t like slimy mushrooms from a can. I love fresh mushrooms. Kroger had marked down some large portabella caps, so I scooped those up. I was initially going to do a hamburger with the mushroom in place of a bun, but I changed my mind when I got into the kitchen. I used half of my taco seasoning for the ground beef and the other half for my chicken.

Do these count as fajitas, even though I used taco seasoning? Does anyone know the difference?

For both of my lunch options, I added condiment cups. Each one has one tablespoon of guacamole, one tablespoon of sour cream, and one tablespoon of salsa. This is just a convenience thing because I’m always running behind in the morning and don’t have time to measure this stuff out. The fajitas also have a small cup of cheddar cheese.
Snacks: Antipasto Salad
Like the breakfast casserole, this is another dish that I make often. It has lots of healthy fats, takes just minutes to put together, and satisfies me when I want a snack. Besides, is there anything better than olives?

I also picked some of these portable protein packs. They were on sale at Kroger and there was a coupon available to print. If you are trying these, just be sure to check the nutrition info. This one has less than 1 carb, but there are some that include fruit or almond clusters. Those have higher carb counts.
