So I posted a few days ago that I fell “off the wagon” and was going to get my act together! Insert meal planning and prepping. I posted a couple of those photos on instagram and got a couple of questions on what I was planning. DING DING DING this blog post was born.
I always start meal planning with weekly dinners. They have to be easy enough for my husband to cook since he is the one that cooks dinner. So it either needs to be pre-made and heated up or easy enough for him to cook. So weekly dinners (exactly how they look to him):
Sunday – Chickpea veggie burgers (Kim)
Monday – Black Bean Fajita salad – Racing Weight Cookbook
Tuesday – Leftovers (we are both working out that night)
Wednesday – Crockpot Spaghetti Squash Thai Bowl (look in crockpot)
Thursday – Tomato Basil Tortellini (look in crockpot)
Friday – Stracciatella Soup – Clean Eating Magazine (Jan edition)
Once that is planned out I figure out my lunches for the week. I like to make batches. This week is Beef Stew and Chicken Fingers (from Clean Eating).
So my day looks like this:
Breakfast – 1 egg and 3 egg whites, 1 cup sautéed spinach
Morning Snack – 1 protein shake, 1 serving almonds, 1 apple
Lunch – Beef Stew
Afternoon Snack – 1 protein shake, carrots, and hummus
Dinner – See above for whatever day it is
Evening snack – if I’m still hungry I’ll have some strawberries or popcorn. Something simple but I usually skip this one.
What’s everyone else making and eating??
