To help with this I will be starting the 21 Day Fix in a week!! Am I suppose to be excited about that?!?! So I decided to prepare for that this week by getting back into the more strict lunches and meal prep (the last few weeks I haven't planned as much). I haven't received my 21 Day Fix yet, so not sure what my portions will be, but either way I planned a healthy and lower carb meals for *most* of the week, at least during the day!
Meal prep in full force for breakfast and lunches for the week!! I need a bigger kitchen for sure...
Breakfast will be spinach and feta Egg Muffins for the week. Approximately 105 calories each.
Spray large muffin tin with Pam. Crack one egg in each and stir to break the yolk. Add 1/8-1/4 cup chopped fresh spinach and 1 tbsp feta to each egg. Add pepper to taste. Stir to combine. Bake at 350 for about 18 minutes or until set. I will probably eat with a piece of toast, Lovi'n fresh aldi bread, that is 70 calories a slice!! And of course coffee.
Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!! Breakfast DONE!
On to lunches. This week I have two different sets of lunches.
Three days I am having salad, hard boiled egg, 2 oz rotisserie chicken, cucumbers and yogurt ranch. Calories approximately 245 calories.
The other two days lunch will be buffalo chicken lettuce wraps. 4oz rotisserie chicken with franks red hot and celery mixed in. Four romaine leafs, cucumber and carrots with yogurt ranch dressing. Calories approximately 250 calories.
Snacks will be a heaping cup of strawberries and 1/4 cup almonds. (50 and 170 calories respectively)
(Henry loves helping to put together my lunches!!)
So when it is all said and done I have lunches and breakfasts done for the week with extras leftover to eat during the week.
Bottom shelf is ALL mine!!
What I bought for breakfast & lunches:
1 rotisserie chicken
1 large container strawberries
1 english cucumber
1-3 pack romaine lettuce
1 small bag of spinach
Bolthouse Yogurt ranch dressing (already had)
Celery (already had)
Small container of feta
We have a bunch of stuff going on this week in the evenings. We have stuff with friends a couple evenings and family in town Friday - Sunday and a cookout with friends Saturday!! Meals in the evening will be a little heavier, but I feel I have balanced them well with my low carb, high protein and low calorie days!!
Sunday - Pasta casserole
Monday - Pizza and Salad
Tuesday - Fajitas
Wednesday - Leftovers
Thursday - Breakfast
Friday - OUT - Family
Saturday - Cookout
Sunday - Grilled Chicken and Grilled Veggies
I also have 100 calorie fudge bars from aldi's fit & active line for some of those evenings I need a chocolate fix. YUM!!!
I forgot to track just my food expenses because we needed so many non-food items at the store. But I estimate about $100 was spent on food for the week (excluding the cookout food).
What are YOU eating this week?!?!
