Last week I talked about a question I got from a client, is it more important to track your food or plan your food?
In case you missed that you can check out my post HERE.
Simply speaking I think planning and preparing your food will set you up for greater success than just tracking your food.
Today I want to share with you one of the most simple ways you can plan a few meals for the week.
This is completely customizable to whatever you like and does not require hours of shopping and cooking.
The first thing I want you to do is to grab something to write with or your phone.
I want you to make a section for Proteins, Smart Carbs, Healthy Fats, and Veggies.
Next, I want you to write down 3 foods for each category that you enjoy, and can easily prepare this week. To keep this super simple do not think “recipes” or flavors yet, simply think about the specific food.
My list would look something like this:
Proteins: Chicken Breasts, 93 Len Ground Beef, and Eggs
Smart Carbs: Jasmine Rice, Baby Gold Potatoes, and Quinoa
Healthy Fats: Olive Oil, Avocado, and Natural Peanut Butter
Veggies: Bell Peppers, Spring Mix Lettuce, and Broccoli
Your list may look something like mine or it could look completely different, it really does not matter.
The next thing I want you to try to do is to create a few different meals only using the ingredients listed above.
Now you can add spices and flavors to these dishes but try not to add any other ingredients, remember we are trying to keep things simple.
Give this a shot and let me know what some of your go-to meals are!
