Full Day of Eating + Meal Planning (ConfidenceKini Challenge, week 3)

Welcome to my Full Day of Eating + Meal Planning series. I hope this resource helps you meal plan for your week and give you ideas for a full day of healthy eating. I will keep up with these all throughout the challenge to better help you get to those goals.

If you haven’t yet started the challenge, it’s definitely not too late… join in HERE!

 

EAT YOUR WAY LEAN MEAL PLAN: 

Many of the recipes that I will reference in these eating + meal planning posts can be found in my Meal Plan. As part of my meal plan, I send weekly meal menus out each week of the challenge, so this is how I am incorporating those recipes into what I am eating this week.

I HIGHLY recommend this plan to those women who want to see results through food. It’s an easy-to-follow eating approach that teaches you macro combinations, portions + even optimal timing. Yet, you’ll still be eating your favorite foods like pizza, pasta, cookies, chips and chocolate (seriously!)

or, if you’d like to opt for the Premium Challenge Bundle, the meal plan is included 

Here is a sample of what I will be eating this week throughout the entire day.

MY DINNER TRICK: I like to cook a fresh, different dinner each night. This approach is magic because…

  • I actually get to enjoy a just-made delicious dinner (that’s quick to make, typical LG style) 
  • my cravings kick in at night and having a delicious dinner helps curb my PM cravings + snacking
  • I double the recipe so that I always have leftovers for the follow day’s lunch

DINNER IDEAS:

Like I mentioned, I cook a fresh dinner each night. Here’s what I’ll be cooking this week. If you’re following my approach, don’t forget to double your serving while you cook to have a healthy, reheatable lunch option for the next day.

Just a reminder that recipes I reference below are found in this Meal Plan.monday

Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad – my favorite meal menu recipe of the week. I’m a huge pasta salad person and I love the cool contrast on a warmer spring/summer day. Although, here in Houston it’s totally summer temps. This recipe is an ideal lunch option as well because it’s very easy to take in a food storage container.

Simple Spaghetti – an absolute HIT in our house. We all like it because it’s tasty but as a busy wife and mom, I like it most because it’s easy to make a big batch and then reheat throughout the week

Instant Pot Chicken Risotto – this is the first Instant Pot recipe I’ve ever shared and I can’t wait to hear what y’all think of it.

thursdayDinner for Breakfast – I like to do this at least once per week because breakfast is my favorite type of food and it’s so quick to make.

My Usual Breakfast for Dinner:

  • 2 eggs, 1 egg white
  • Bunch of veggies mixed in the eggs
  • 2 slices all natural, uncured bacon
  • Dave’s Killer bread bagel w/ PB + natural fruit spread

Mediterranean Chicken with Salsa Fresca – a spin on a classic chicken dish. I’m strategically assigning this recipe to Friday because I plan on grilling out with this one and enjoying a patio dinner. At home date night!
