Mindful Monday, Meal Plan Monday and Family Care Plan

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone continues to be well.  My husband is now working from home until further notice, my son and I are still at essential work jobs.  I have CKD and am a nurse, so I am starting to feel a little unsettled at continuing to work.  I will continue to work as long as I can and as long as I feel it is safe to do so.  I will be looking at Family Medical Leave rules just in case.  I have created a family care plan for my family to follow should I get sick.  If you would like to know how to create one for your family use the contact form below to message me for a free meet and greet via email.

Now is a great time to learn more about Mindfulness and how it can help you in many ways.  As I stated the other day I am now enrolled in a Mindfulness certificate course, so I look forward to offering that as an option for customers.  I have seen several activities to help improve self-confidence, under Mindfulness topics.  One of them is to write a love letter to yourself.  I think this is a great base starting point for anyone trying to boost their confidence or self-image.  Try it, and see how much you love and respect yourself.

Here is my family meal plan for the week of 3/29/2020- 04/05/2020 with modifications for my CKD.

Sunday 3/29/2020:  Hot dogs.  I did not eat this.  I worked so I took peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

Monday:  Pork chops with brown fried rice and a vegetable.  Pork chops for CKD is 3 ounces, 1/3 of a cup of brown rice and a vegetable.  If you have potassium issues choose a low potassium veggie or only eat a 1/2 portion.  If you are not diabetic or need to lose weight you can probably eat more than a 1/3 cup of rice.

Tuesday:  Oven-baked chicken, sweet potatoes, and salad.  Use low sodium seasoning to bake the chicken.  1/2 of a sweet potato or 1/3 of a cup of mashed sweet potato, and a side salad with low potassium veggies.

Wednesday:  Leftovers

Thursday:  Kielbasa hash brown soup with celery and carrots.  I have not decided yet how I am making this so I will update after.

Friday:  Grilled cheese and chicken noodle soup.  I will not be eating this as I will be at work.  So I will take a peanut butter sandwich and a banana.

Saturday:  Sausage and cheese croissants, scrambled eggs and fruit.  This is essentially breakfast for dinner.  I will eat one croissant with a minimal amount of cheese and one breakfast sausage.  If I have scrambled eggs it will be one to two eggs depending on how much protein and phosphorus I have already consumed that day.  Fruit will most likely be a banana, but if you have potassium issues pick a lower potassium fruit.
