Menu: Week of 8/15/16

Menu: Week of Aug 15, 2016. My weekly, real-life menu. Click to see what I'm eating and get some inspiration for your own weekly meal planning!

This week's menu is a little more intense than usual because I'm on a macro plan which causes me to be a little more (ok, a lot more) precise in what I'm eating. I'm going to share exactly what I'm eating, but not the amounts because as I've said before, what works for me might not be right for you.

I'm only planning for the weekdays because I'm kind of sick right now and that was all I could manage mentally. 

Day Meal 1 Meal 2 Meal 3 Meal 4
Monday Eggs, avocdado, & arugala Chicken Bacon Salad: chix breast, bacon, greens, cuke, peppers, avocado, balsamic dressing Chicken apple sausage, peppers, kraut, almonds Taco salad
Tuesday Egg white scramble w/ veggies, toast w/ PB Leftover taco salad Chicken, roasted veggies, greens, & tahini sauce Creamy Lemon Crockpot Chicken
Wednesday Egg muffins, cucumber, avocado Ground turkey, kale, peppers, mushrooms, shredded brussels sprouts Chicken, roasted veggies, greens, & tahini sauce Crockpot pork shoulder and Bacon Balsamic Brussels Sprouts
Thursday Pork scramble with leftover pork, spinach, and peppers; toast Ground turkey, kale, peppers, mushrooms, shredded brussels sprouts Egg muffins, cucumber, avocado Spaghetti (tomato sauce, ground beef, pasta/zucchini noodles)
Friday Leftover cleanup day

Again, this fits my macro requirements, so just because this works for me, doesn't mean it's what's best for you. Right now on non-workout days I'm only eating veggie carbs. As long as I kick this nasty cold I have, my plan is to workout on Tuesday and Thursday so there are other carbs (potatoes, rice, or GF pasta) worked into those days. If I workout more days than that, I'll add some more carbs in. Remember, plans are just guidelines and you should plan in a way that allows you to make adjustments if needed!
