April Menu Plan
Since I am on the 17 Day Diet. This months plan is focused on more kid-friendly meals. I find it much easier to make easy, fun meals that are not as tempting for me to eat when I am dieting. I am making allot of salads, chicken and chicken & veggie soup for myself.

Allowed in moderationI am enjoying the ease of the plan - it is an easy plan to follow. I made the kids chili cheese hot dogs the other day – and I was so tempted to have one, but I did not give in. For the most part I have been pretty faithful. A few times I have sampled the kids food while making it an then realize – oops!! I did have some corn in my soup this week (used mixed veggies in making it.) Corn is not on the diet until Phase 2. The book details the diet and gives specifics on how to follow it.
