The Next Three Days

first of all

Did you see?

Tiffany and I finally got to meet!  We've been chatting through blogs, emails, and Facebook for years now.  Honestly, I wasn't nervous at all and it was like talking to an old friend.  Of course a food blogger meet up would consist of a 10.5 mile hike.  Whew my legs are sore!

alright on to the food

I did my meal prep on Sunday for the next three days.

It's always "the next three days" in my house.  Since I've been counting macros I meal prep every three days and have Sunday as a rest day or "cheat" day if you want to call it.  I still eat healthy.  I just give myself some slack on the counting.  If I happen to want a cookie or something that's the day I eat it.  If we want to go out to eat that's the day we go.

Now before I even went shopping I planned out what I was going to eat for the week.

here's what I planned for my three days

M1
1 egg
2 egg whites
1t coconut oil
1/3c oats
2T PB2
Coffee with ½ c almond milk

M2
Protein shake- strawberry progenex (it's terrible get the chocolate)

M3
4oz grassfed 85/15 beef
1c green beans
1c kale

M4
8oz chicken breast
½ c broccoli
¼ c basmati white rice

M5
1c plain nonfat greek yogurt
½ banana

1T sunbutter

grocery list
yogurt
bananas
broccoli
kale
green beans
sunbutter
basmati rice
chicken 
beef 
eggs
coconut oil
oats
PB2
coffee
almond milk

stats
1515 calories
152g protein- 40%
116g carbs- 30%
50g fat- 30%

here's what it looked like


notes

• This was one of my favorite meal plans.  I felt great all day.  

• Did you see I added PB2?  I saw it on instagram... it was bought on a whim.  Not my thing but I'll use it up.  

•  I also added some oats for breakfast and LOVED it.  I felt great and it kept my belly full.  

•  I also found that I really enjoy egg whites mixed with whole eggs.  I actually like it more than all whole eggs.

Have you ever met another food blogger?

You rock at food prepping! I've never seen anyone do it so well!
I meet a food blogger a few weekends ago, major let down and I was so excited about meeting her too. She considers herself to be a 'real paleo' blogger hahahaha. I think my big toe might have more knowledge than she does (oops that sounds nasty and I don't mean it to).
Anyway, I absolutely love your every 3 days idea!!

I feel like I have to meal prep to keep on track. Honestly, I enjoy it. It gives me something to do and I love seeing the benefits. Being a military wife and having two little kids I feel like my life can be so out of control. This is the one thing I have control over :)

Great post! I have recently met quite a few food bloggers in my area. We all got together this past fall and have another meet-up planned for March. And recently we formed our own FB group so we can chat about blog stuff and not bombard our "non blog" friends on FB with the boring details:)

That makes me so happy! I started with the eat to perform calculator- http://eattoperform.com/eat-to-perform-calculator/. It helped me find my calories. Then I just picked the traditional 40-30-30 ratios for my protein, carbs, and fat. I plugged everything into myfitnesspal. Done! If you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask!

That is so much fun! What a great idea for the group :)

This is actually really helpful for me. I think I need to work on my meal prepping this weekend. i have been struggling through some migraines and have been cheating a bit too much off my clean/Paleoish diet. You are so helpful! I started oats again too recently and find it very helpful in staying full!

Kristen said...

I'm so glad you found this helpful! I've had so many questions about macros and I thought it would be easier to just write it all out.
