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!

  • 10 cucumbers

  • 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

  • 3 bananas

  • 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

    COOK THIS MEAL:

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.
