Sample Meal Plan

Sample Meal Plan copyHow the heck did this month go by so fast?  The is only my second post for July, and it’s already the 31st! Wups!

Well I posted this morning on Instagram about how I have been so naughty lately and letting myself eat way too many YOLO meals, and not enough clean, green, and lean meals! So I thought I’d share with you guys some of the things I was cooking up yesterday, and my “meal plan” for the next few days.

I created this meal plan to make sure I’m getting the proper amount of calories, protein, fat, and carbs my body needs! I’m not depriving myself of anything except for the junk! Which, like I said, I’ve already had enough of!

In case you’d like to use this as a guide, here are some of my suggestions:

1) Eat every 2-3 hrs

2) I didn’t include portion sizes on the sample plan, because it’ll be different for everyone based on your goals, and your current body size.  But start with how many calories should eat per day and then adjust the portions accordingly.  Here’s what I do usually:

-For grains I eat between 1/3-1/2 cup.

-For protein about 2-4 ounces.

-For vegetables, anywhere between 1/3 c-2 cups but you really can’t have too many greens!

-For oil, anywhere between 1 tsp- 1 tbsp

3) Drink at least a gallon of water/day

4) Take a multi-vitamin

5) Keep seasonings minimal.  I try to use as little salt as possible without completely cutting it out.  I like to season with herbs, balsamic vinegar, mustard, and no sugar added spaghetti or marinara sauce!

Thanks for following along!
