Weekly Meal Plan (January 12 – 18)

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. My usual cooking style is quick and easy, but this week you’ll really notice that. Scroll for what I’m cooking if you’d like to follow it too.

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 

 

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.

ROTISSERIE CHICKEN + SHORTCUT MEAL – on Sundays, I like to use a shortcut meal to provide a healthy option for dinner without much hassle. This week, I plan to buy a rotisserie chicken for a lean protein option. I’ll pair it with a frozen fried rice or cauliflower fried rice for a shortcut meal idea.
