Today I am starting something new where I will be sharing my weekly meal plans with you every Sunday. I always enjoy reading other people’s meal plans to get ideas for myself so I thought I would start sharing too. Another reason for the meal plans is I will be starting the Whole 30 Program tomorrow so this will help hold me accountable as well as help others with meal ideas who also may be interested in starting the program.
For those who aren’t familiar with Whole 30, the program is basically where you avoid sugar, alcohol, grains, legumes, and dairy for 30 days. The idea is to eat real food like meat, seafood, eggs, vegetables, fruits, and good fat from oils, nuts, and seeds in order to “reset” your metabolism and digestive system. I am excited to try this and hoping to improve my energy levels.
Here is my meal plan for Week 1:
Eggs with Sweet Potato, Red Pepper, and Onion Hash
Spinach and Kale Salad with Shredded Chicken, Carrots, Zucchini, Broccoli, and Roasted Red Pepper. Dressing: Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil
Cashews, Strawberries, and Raspberries
Monday 2/23: Chicken Bacon Avocado Salad with Roasted Asparagus
Tuesday 2/24: Bible Study night – Leftover salad from Monday for me, Chipotle for Kevin (he is not doing Whole 30)
Wednesday 2/25: Beef Burgers (no bun) with lettuce, tomato, avocado, and Sweet Potato Fries
Thursday 2/26: Ground Beef Taco Salads with homemade taco seasoning, fresh homemade salsa, and avocado
Friday 2/27: Whole Foods salad bar
Saturday 2/28: Out to dinner
