GROCERIES FOR THE WEEK (5 DAYS)
10 cups carrot spirals - I buy mine pre-spiraled, because I’m lazy, and frozen so they don’t go bad quickly!
2 1/2 cup nuts - use any nut you like! And, generally I think roasted, salted nuts are fine!
5 cans of tuna
5 100-calorie amounts of chocolate
5 single-serving packets guacamole
5 chicken breasts - I buy mine pre-cooked & ready to eat!
3 whole wheat bagels
1 can pumpkin puree
1 container light whipped cream cheese
1 jar regular mayo - we only need a few Tbsp for the week
2 1/2 cups dry oatmeal
EACH DAY 1474 CALORIES
36% CALORIES FROM FAT; 26% CALORIES FROM PROTEIN; 38% CALORIES FROM CARB
I like the Lose It app to keep track of foods. These are some screenshots - click on an image to enlarge it!
If you're interested in my outlook on weight loss and weight management, here's what I wrote on the subject!
1/2 cup dry oatmeal, cooked in the microwave with water
Top with 1/2 sliced banana and 1/4 cup nuts
1 can tuna mixed with 1 Tbsp regular mayo
1/8 cup nuts
100-calories worth of chocolate
2 cucumbers, sliced
1/2 whole wheat bagel with 1 single-serving to-go packet guacamole spread
2 cups carrot “spirals”
4oz grilled chicken
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup light whipped cream cheese
COOK THIS MEAL:
In 1 pot (Pot 1) - heat canned pumpkin and cream cheese
In a separate pan (Pot 2) heat frozen carrot noodles with a cooking spray, stirring occasionally to break them up
Add carrots to pumpkin sauce in Pot 1
In Pot 2, heat pre-cooked chicken breast
Put all on a plate and voila!
Note: I’ve tried to make this meal prep as EASY as possible - so every single day is the same. HOWEVER, if you’re anything like me, it’s quite boring to eat the same thing every day! Please feel free to switch out different protein sources, vegetables, and fats. Also, as with the rest this website, this information is general, not specific to you. You, personally, may need different amounts of calories, nutrients, etc.
