Over the past two weeks I’ve been striving to eat less carbohydrates and to eat lean and green. One thing I learned off the bat is that if you do not prep for the week ahead you will end up eating carbs. Eating lean and green is a lot of work, but if you put the time into organizing your meal plan, buying the right foods, and prepping the foods ahead of time, you’ll be set for the week!
Here’s this week’s meal plan.
|Monday||2 eggs and 1 egg white||Salmon and asparagus||Salad topped with salmon||AM – FitnessGlo workoutPM – Football practice|
|Tuesday||Smoothie and hardboiled egg||Salad topped with salmon||Dinner at Pizza Paradiso||AM – Spin class and weight lifting|
|Wednesday||2 eggs and 1 egg white||Cheeseburger stuffed bell pepper||Salad topped with salmon||PM – Football practice|
|Thursday||Fresh juice and hardboiled eggs||Cheeseburger stuffed bell pepper||Salad topped with chicken||PM – Weight Lifting|
|Friday||2 eggs and 1 egg white||Lunch in DC||Pork tenderloin and cauliflower||AM – Running|
In prep for this week’s meals I roasted 2 potatoes at 425 degrees until cooked through (about 25 minutes).
Roasted asparagus, coated in non-stick cooking spray, salt, and pepper, for 20 minutes at 425 degrees.
And baked salmon at 425 degrees for 20 minutes. For the salmon I seasoned it with salt and pepper and then drizzled key lime juice over the top of it.
The last dish I prepped was something I came up with after making the cheeseburger wraps a few weeks ago. I thought, how awesome would it be to take that filling and stick it in a bell pepper? CHEESEBURGER STUFFED BELL PEPPERS!!
- 1 pound ground turkey
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon ketchup
- 1 tablespoon grated parmesan
- 1 tablespoon of yellow mustard
- 1 teaspoon dried chives
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
Brown ground turkey, adding the remaining ingredients after the meat is cooked through.
Next I filled the two bell peppers with 1/2 cup – 3/4 cup of the cheeseburger mixture.
I then baked the two bell peppers (in a loaf pan) at 425 degrees for 20 minutes.
These puppies are going to be perfect mid week for lunch!!
This is my last week of the FitFluential Diet Bet and although I haven’t weighed myself in almost 2 weeks, I have a funny feeling I still have 4% of my body weight to lose. I want to work hard this week, to eat healthy, watch my portion sizes, drink lots of water, burn lots of calories, and get some GOOD sleep!!
I’m all prepped, now I just have to carry it out!
