So here we are at Week 3. I think I am getting the hang of this meal planning thing. In general, I have very little issues with food cravings unless I skipped a meal accidentally. Then I want all of the unhealthy food, but since I have most of the food prepped and portioned, it makes it easier to make the right food choices. Will I eat this strict the rest of my life? Probably not, but I do feel like I am getting into certain habits that I really like. Below is my meal plan for the week, however, I do make changes occasionally. Everyone once in a while the meat I wrote down doesn’t sound good, so I fry up some eggs. Or the veggies isn’t the one I want, etc. I have also found that Saturday and Sunday dinners tend to be left overs. I will find I have a little of certain foods I prepped earlier in the week left over, so to not have any waste we eat left overs. If you meal prep just for yourself you shouldn’t have too much left over, but since I always need some extra for the kids, and I am never sure how much they will eat. It means we will always have some left overs. However, since starting the meal planning and prepping, the food we normally throw out is significantly less which makes me very happy.
Grant and I have been doing the Keto diet which is a high fat, low carb diet, and here is just a glance at some of the foods we have been eating.
