Healthy Meal Plan & Grocery List (1 week)

So, as promised here is the meal plan and grocery list I was talking about the other day. I just listed “Chili ingredients” as it’s own little section since there are simply too many variations for me to go list the ingredients for. Let me know if you’d like to know my chili recipe!
Anyway, it’s made so that you can just bring the grocery list with you, while keeping the meal plan itself in your binder or wherever you store those things. It’s relatively healthy, and has a spot for you to add a few extras, just in case. Who knows, maybe you can’t survive without pineapple in your fruit salads?
The best advice I would give for sticking with this is simple, pick the day you’ll be least busy. Go grocery shopping, and when you get home, do your food prep! Make the salad, fruit salad, and whatever else you need to do. You’ll thank yourself so much for that when you run into a busy patch in your week and the healthy food is sitting there ready to go! Also, do some prep the night before. Like put your frozen meat in the fridge, cut up some veggies for tomorrow’s supper if you would like. It takes a bit of thought, and it takes some action and work, but in the end it’s worth it.

Here’s a picture of this week’s haul! Delicious, healthy, nutritious food.

Remember, if you’re working out all the time and you have awesome abs, they’ll never show through if you can’t lose the fat that’s sitting on top of them, so fuel your body with smart choices (at least most of the time!) So clean up your eating act now by following this meal plan!

Two Week HEALTHY Meal Plan (Includes Grocery List)

My life can get hectic, just like anyone else’s can too. Believe me, I will be the first to sympathize with those of you who end up going through a drive-thru because you realized that you didn’t take that roast out of the freezer last night, or the fact that it’s already 6 p.m. and you haven’t got anything cooking yet.
SO, do you know what I’ve done for you? (And… you know… myself!) I sat down and made a two week meal plan. It includes a breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, afternoon snack, and supper. The general rule is to simply skip the mid-morning snack if you aren’t hungry. I took the meat out of the freezer three days in advance to make sure it was thawed, and did whatever prep I could the night I bought the food (cut up a chef salad, made a spinach salad, boiled some eggs, etc.) I’m not 100% paleo, but this meal plan was inspired by the two week paleo plan you can find here: http://cavemanstrong.com/mealplans/CavemanStrong-2WeekPaleo-MealPlan.pdf If you’re really looking into going paleo right off the bat, I recommend it. However, I’m not willing to make that commitment yet. I prefer eating more fruits than I do beef jerky, and so do my children. If you don’t like something, feel free to sub it, I promise, I won’t get mad! The only thing I ask is that you don’t crop out my mark. If this inspired your new list, please let others know :). I really need the extra traffic on the site, hahaha!

This is what I came up with: (P.S. Really sorry for spelling Pomello wrong on the weekly lists.)
