When Iโ€™m planning for the week I try my best to be realistic & make things easy.

I choose foods I enjoy, while aiming for a variety of foods that are filling as well (๐˜ ๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฌ ๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜จ๐˜ฉ ๐˜ง๐˜ช๐˜ฃ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ, ๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜จ๐˜ฉ ๐˜ท๐˜ฐ๐˜ญ๐˜ถ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฅ๐˜ด, ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ณ๐˜บ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜ค๐˜ญ๐˜ถ๐˜ฅ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข ๐˜ฑ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ๐˜ถ๐˜ณ๐˜ค๐˜ฆ ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฉ ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฉ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ข๐˜ญ).

Stop aiming for perfection and start making a plan for foods that will fit within your lifestyle. โฃ(๐˜ง๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ ๐˜ฆ๐˜น๐˜ข๐˜ฎ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ฆ, ๐˜ ๐˜ฌ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฐ๐˜ธ ๐˜ ๐˜ญ๐˜ช๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ด๐˜ฏ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฌ ๐˜ข๐˜ต ๐˜ฏ๐˜ช๐˜จ๐˜ฉ๐˜ต ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ ๐˜ ๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ธ๐˜ข๐˜บ๐˜ด ๐˜ฑ๐˜ญ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ ๐˜ข ๐˜ฏ๐˜ช๐˜จ๐˜ฉ๐˜ต๐˜ต๐˜ช๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ด๐˜ฏ๐˜ข๐˜ค๐˜ฌ ๐˜ต๐˜ฐ ๐˜ง๐˜ช๐˜ต ๐˜ธ๐˜ช๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ช๐˜ฏ ๐˜ฎ๐˜บ ๐˜ฅ๐˜ข๐˜ช๐˜ญ๐˜บ ๐˜ค๐˜ข๐˜ญ๐˜ฐ๐˜ณ๐˜ช๐˜ฆ ๐˜จ๐˜ฐ๐˜ข๐˜ญ)

How to Meal Prep

Here’s a little hack: I break things up into 4 categories and try to have 2-3 choices for each to choose from during the week. โฃ
โฃ
๐๐ซ๐จ๐ญ๐ž๐ข๐ง๐ฌ: chicken, ground turkey or lean ground beef, fish, eggs, egg whites, protein powder, Greek yogurt, cottage cheeseโฃ
๐‚๐š๐ซ๐›๐ฌ: sweet potatoes, oats, rice cakes, quinoa, brown rice, beans, popcorn, cereal, frozen fruit, bread or tortillasโฃ
๐…๐š๐ญ๐ฌ: oils, nut butters, coconut flakes, nuts & seeds, dressings, cream cheese, avocado, higher fat cheesesโฃ
๐•๐ž๐ ๐ž๐ญ๐š๐›๐ฅ๐ž๐ฌ: greens mixes, frozen vegetables, roasted veggies, etc…โฃโฃ
โฃ
I like to prep any meats ahead, and eggs you can hard boil, make egg muffins, or cook throughout the week. โฃ
โฃ
If I have non frozen veggies, I’ll usually chop and pre roast along with things like sweet potatoes. Brown rice, quinoa, or any grains will get cooked ahead too.โฃ
โฃ
And that’s honestly it! I’ll do a lot of frozen veggies, random grab and go snacks, smoothies in the blender, mug cakes, oats in the microwave, Greek yogurt bowls etc…โฃ
