LG Weekly Meal Plan (Sept 15-21)

Welcome to my Meal Planning series. Every weekend, I meal plan for myself and my family. I don’t cook any of these meals ahead of time, but this strategic approach to eating saves me time, money and allows me to eat healthy. Go figure – if you plan to eat healthy meals, you’ll actually eat healthy meals. Here is what I’ll be making for dinner this week. I will keep up with these posts all throughout the challenge.

 

WHAT IS MEAL PLANNING?

Meal planning is exactly as it sounds: planning your meals ahead of time. For me, I plan out all my dinners and then just think of some breakfast and snack options. 

I plan it out exactly as you’ll see below. I check what i have on hand and i’ll grocery shop for any necessary items.

 

LG 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 cookbooks 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!)

 

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.

TURKEY RANCH WRAP – on Sundays I either like to make a dinner that we can munch on all week long OR I do something really simple when we are busy. This Sunday is a busy one, so I like a sandwich/wrap because it’s basically just assembly and eat.

mondaySPICY SHRIMP/CHICKEN – this is my husband’s “famous” dish in our home. He’s great at cooking it and I reallllllly talk it up so that he keeps cooking and I can just sit back and eat lol.

tuesdayBUFFALO CHICKEN BITES – I’m going to make a larger batch of these. They are super versatile too- I like them as is, dipped into a little bit of my homemade ranch dressing and my husband likely these on top of a salad

BURGERS – we are still enjoying lots of meals on the grill! I want to do burgers mid-week.

My Easy + Delicious Burger 

  • lean ground beef or turkey
  • seasoned salt
  • quality cheddar cheese
  • 2 slices Dave’s Killer bread lightly toasted

Zucchini Boat Enchiladas – I like to create meals that allow me to assemble rather than cook everything from scratch. This recipe uses cooked rotisserie chicken so it’s one less step for me!

PHILLY CHEESESTEAK FOIL PACKETS – I saw quite a few tags of this recipe this week on my Instagram. I love getting tagged in your LG meals because it reminds me of meals I need to make.
