As you may recall I eat food based on a meal plan. Up until recently my Trainer Felicity Neale would set out the meal plan for me which was great as I could give my input about what I liked and she would design the plan for me.
For probably about the last 10 weeks or so I have been having a go at designing my weekly meal plan which has been really interesting for me as well as tricky and also fun!
I thought I would share my meal plans from time to time here just in case anyone who reads the blog is looking for some food inspiration! I won’t share the exact measurements of each component of the meal because they are specific to me and what works for me may not work for everyone else. Also I am trying to maintain my weight with the aim of skin removal surgery rather than specifically loose fat.
For Part 1 I thought I would share my meal plan which ran from 15 to 28 April 2019. I do tend to eat the foods over just 7 days but with the Easter break I stayed on this one for two weeks.
Pre Work Out
Before I work out I always, regardless of the meal plan, have the following:
A teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar diluted in water
- Vital Greens mixed with Psylium Husk
- 100ml Apple Juice
- Scoop of protein powder mixed in water
Post Work Out / Breakfast
For this plan I was lucky as the foods I could eat formed a good breakfast and dessert!
- Scrambled eggs with a drop of water cooked with some rocket / kale
- White Rice and Peaches in Juice which I heated up and sprinkled with some mixed spice (as I don’t like cinnamon)
I also usually have a big glass of water and a cup of coffee with / after my food.
- Chicken which I cooked in the slow cooker
- Sweet Potato
- Olive Oil
- Green veggies
- Olive Oil
This dinner probably isn’t everyones cup of tea but I really enjoy eating it (which is essential when you are eating the same thing for 7 days in a row) and I look forward to being able to slot it into my meal plan.
- Lean Beef Mince
- Cabbage, red onions and mushrooms cooked with garlic and chilli
- Sugar free jelly (which is great if you have a sweet tooth).
Whilst I don’t want to give the measurements for each component of the meal, the above calories added up to about 1686 a day with 138g protein, 65 grams of fat and 95g carbs. I don’t include the green veggies etc in my calorie count
I pre-cook as much of the food as possible on the Saturday or Sunday otherwise there is a risk I will be too tired from work and that makes cooking pretty unpleasant. The lunches get measured and boxed so I can grab the boxes and go for work etc. The breakfast and dinner components get stored in bigger boxes and are measured out as I go.
