It's been 15 weeks since I started counting macros and well I don't plan on stopping anytime soon. It's been a total game changer -- flexible eating/dieting is a lifestyle I can sustain long term. Hello, I still eat chocolate, bread, cheese, etc. Did I mention I've also lost 15 pounds! I feel good and don't feel like I'm depriving myself of the food I enjoy.
I've talked about what I eat before, but today it's all about those staple meals. To simply put it the meals I make almost every week. Yup, during the week I keep things really simple and repeat a few of the same dishes.
I do this for a few reasons. First, because I don't have to give meals much thought. Secondly, because I already know they'll fit my macros. If you follow me on IG then you already know what I'm eating, but here's a little breakdown.
|BEST SALAD BOWL - EVER! | SIETE CHIPS - NACHO (pictured)|
3 quick and easy Breakfast ideas + plus coffee with creamer :)
+ Sourdough toast with butter, 2 egg whites, and salsa
+ Breakfast Burrito: 1 Joesph's Lavish Flat Bread with fat-free cheese, 1 egg white and one slice of bacon
+ Kodiak Pancakes or Van's Waffles topped with butter/honey and 1-2 egg whites on the side
|NEW FAVORITE CREAMER - NUTPODS|
Working from home makes lunch super easy, but all my lunches can easily be prepped the night before so you can grab and go in the morning.
3 quick and easy Lunch ideas
+ Salad: Meat of choice (Typically it's chicken or ground turkey), spinach, bell peppers, cucumbers topped with Bolthouse yogurt dressing and maybe a few chips on the side.
+ Wrap/Pita: Chicken Salad or shredded chicken with a sliced pickle, mustard, and spinach. I use Joesph's pita or nuco coconut wraps
+ Two lightly salted rice cakes topped with chicken salad and a small sliced apple with PB2 on the side
|BEST DRESSING - BOATHOUSE FARMS | LATE JULY CHIPS|
This is where I keep things as simple as possible and a big bowl is usually involved. Additionally, I like to save the majority of my macros for dinner (and snacks).
3 quick and easy Dinner ideas
+ Potato bowls - Red or sweet potatoes topped with roasted veggies, shredded chicken, and salsa
+ Cauliflower Pizza topped with your favorite sauce and toppings
+ Spaghetti squash with extra lean ground turkey and homemade/organic tomato sauce
If you're a snacker, like me, don't worry I'll write an entire post just about snacks, treats and protein shakes since these are included in my daily meal plan!
