Again, I refer to the portion control container colors which you can find here. If you are on the 21 day fix, this is the lowest bracket (1200-1500).
My goal for this week was to cut the time you will spend in the kitchen while also cutting the amount of money you spend on groceries. So that means yes, you will be eating leftovers. You will be using all of the groceries you buy and not wasting food.
One way to cut down on kitchen time even more is to skip making your own chicken and just buy a rotisserie chicken. Also, take as much time as you can on your off day to prep as much food as you can for the week. Then during the week you will just have to throw it in the microwave.
Remember, if you work outside of the home, make sure you are packing enough food to keep you full throughout your work day. Also make sure you are packing the correct portions. I recommend a meal prep lunch bag like this one.
You’ll also notice that I don’t always use the teaspoons, so on other days I may make up for it by using a little extra. If you want, you can also add your teaspoon of choice on those days as long as they add up correctly throughout the week. Basically, don’t go over the amount you should have in a week (14tsp total).
What should you be drinking? Water. Seriously, just drink water. Please avoid any empty calories like soda or juice. If you want to add flavor to your water, you can drink these detox waters.
Ok, here is the meal plan for this week. And if you don’t have time to make something one day, switch it with something from another day. As long as you’re eating the foods in the plan throughout the week you’ll be fine.
Chicken , or you can buy a rotisserie chicken
Salad: For salads I just chop up spinach, kale, sometimes romaine lettuce and portion it out. If I have other ingredients on the meal plan I just portion those out as well, mix it all together, and top with either OPA dressing or squeeze a fresh lime over the salad with a little bit of sea salt.
