Got back from the beach ready to do this thing! OK. Doing this. Suddenly all that Pinterest curating is leaving my brain. 

What is part of our family routine that works well? I plan out dinners for the week to make a specific grocery list. I go to Walmart and have a weekly budget of $150 that needs to cover food, animals and paper goods. I know I want to stick to that — no bougie shopping for me. 

Now I’m going to collate all that fine blogger data. PCOS reacts well to diets geared toward those with Type 2 diabetes, so let’s trim the sugars. It also has a lot to do with inflammation and hormones, so let’s scrap the dairy, gluten, coffee and soy. Oh boy. OK. I’m still in this.

Time for the plan for the week:

Friday: chicken and veg hibachi (jasmine fried rice for the fam and a pile of zucchini, onion and broccoli for me. I know I’m supposed to kill soy, but I love sesame dressing with my veg
Saturday: salmon, wild rice and broccoli 
Sunday: chicken soft tacos (flour tortillas and shredded cheese for the fam and taco salad style for me)
Monday: eating out (we have meal plans with our Carowinds passes — this will be interesting)
Tuesday: chicken fried “rice” — first time with “riced” cauliflower WTF that even means
Wednesday: pork chops and baked sweet potatoes 
Thursday: sausage bake — “natural” andouille, sweet potatoes, asparagus, onions

Whew. OK. This all sounds tasty. What about breakfasts? I don’t think the bagel will do any longer. Better pick up a crapton of eggs. Maybe some gluten free bread and a few random fruits. 

Total bill: $151. Score!
