Most of this weeks meal prep happened on Sunday – we spent the Saturday traveling to a baby shower, a St. Pat’s Day parade, and just plain on the go!

Meal/Snack Plan for the Week

Since I am starting back with the carb cycling, my meals and snacks are always going to include vegetables. This will help with keeping me full until my next meal/snack, eating roughly every 3 hours. My high carb meals/snack will contain a protein, carb, and 2 vegetable servings (usually). My low carb meals/snacks will contain a protein, fat, and 2 vegetable servings (usually). I am doing an “athletic performance” cycle this time around (versus the “turbo cycle” strickly for weight loss, as I did last year). This just means that I will have more “high carb” days than “low carb” days šŸ™‚

[breakfast]

smoothie (protein powder + vegetable (usually spinach or kale) + fruit + water/ice)

eggs + vegetables + whole wheat tortilla

avocado + toast + vegetables

[lunch]

fresh vegetables + hummus + egg whites

chicken + roasted sweet potato + green beans

mixed greens salad + chicken + carrots + light dressing

leftovers
