LG Weekly Meal Plan (Sept 22-28)

Welcome to my Meal Planning blog post series. Every weekend, I meal plan for myself and my family. It’s a rough blueprint of what I will be cooking and eating throughout the week. This strategy saves me time, money and allows me to eat healthy because I know exactly what to eat.┬á

 

If you plan to eat healthy meals, you’ll actually eat healthy meals.

 

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.
 
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┬á(that’s quick to make, typical LG style)┬á
  • 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┬á

 
LG EAT YOUR WAY LEAN MEAL PLAN + COOOKBOOKS: 
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!)

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/Cookbook.
TACO LASAGNA – you know you’re part of the LG community when this is on your regular rotation. This is one of the most popular Cookbook recipes I have and it’s perfect for Sunday because it makes a lot of servings so you can have it as a back up option throughout the week.

mondayCRISPY PARM CHICKEN + ZUCCHINI BAKE – this is my favorite recipe from this week’s cookbook! It’s a quintessential LG recipe – simple ingredients, quick prep time and ridiculously delicious.

tuesdaySPICY + CHEESY STUFFED PEPPERS – this was one of my most cooked meals two years ago. I literally made it once per week for monthsss. I made it again recently and sparked my obsession back up.

AVOCADO BALSAMIC CHICKEN – I crave recipes that use a balsamic glaze. I used to LOVE a balsamic glaze over salmon until salmon oddly began upsetting my stomach. So, I tried it out over this chicken dish which also uses cheese and avocado for one flavorful meal.

BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP – I’m not huge into the NFL but I did grow up in Wisconsin and went to college right outside of Green Bay so the Packers are just a part of me. They play in Thursday night’s game so I plan to make a “game day dinner.” This one is literallllllllly out of this world. You MUST try it!

SWEET POTATO VEGGIE QUESADILLAS – my son isn’t crazy about meat, so I do try to include some meatless meals in our rotation. This quesadilla is one I know all of us will love.

TREAT MEAL! I use Saturday night as a time to enjoy treats – go ahead and enjoy! Share what you’re indulging in on social and tag me because I am all about it haha.┬á
