The first step is to probably think about what snacks and meals you want to have through-out the day!
I don't plan for the whole week, I usually take it 2 days at a time since I cook my meat everyday so it's fresh.
So when I make dinner I usually make enough to have for lunch the next day, and then I plan out my snacks for the next day. I will separate everything out into containers or bags the night before so that in the morning I throw them into my lunch box and I am ready to go!
I usually think about what types of meals I want for the week, for example:
- Breakfast: Shakeology, eggs
- Snack: oatmeal with blueberries
- Lunch: Chicken with squash
- snack: cottage cheese
- Snack: ham slices, nuts, 1/2 apple
- Dinner: Spaghetti with ground beef
- Snack: protein shake, greek yogurt
That dinner becomes the lunch for the next day so I only have to cook 1 meal a day. So when I grocery shop I have a general idea of what types of meals I want for the week and so it makes it easy to have everything I need so I have zero excuses to pick something up that I shouldn't be eating.
