Meal Planning

So you have a lot of containers to eat in one day, don’t you think?

The basic idea is we are using the containers to measure our food portions. Bear with it, I know it’s an extra step but we are here to learn and get healthy habits!

The best way to do it is to think of it like this:

Breakfast: 1 red, 1 purple, 1 yellow, 1 blue (2 scrambled eggs w/ cheese or avocado, oats & strawberries)

Snack: 1 purple & 1 red (Shakeology w/ fruit or Yogurt & fruit)

Lunch: 1 red, 1 green, 1 yellow, 1 orange (Taco salad w/ beans & olives)

Snack: 1 green (Carrots, cucumbers, etc)

Dinner: 1 red, 1 green (Steak and green beans)

Essentially you’re trying to get as many colors in each meal while also being as TOP HEAVY as you can stomach. I say that because a lot of people don’t like to eat breakfast. Eating a FULL breakfast as early as you can upon waking is a killer fat loss method. But I know not everyone is ready for that yet! =D

So, you can choose to menu plan yourself. OR you start by using plans I’ve provided.

MENU PLANNING
✔️Step 1: Pick your breakfasts & your shakeology recipes. (I start with breakfasts because it’s the easiest)
✔️Step 2: Plug them into menu plan according to fix portion counts.
✔️Step 3: Write out ingredients for both in shopping list.
✔️Step 4: Repeat steps 1-3 for dinners. I do dinner next because you will probably use some dinners for lunches and your dinners usually affect the entire family so it’s best to plan those first.
✔️Step 5: Repeat steps 1-3 for lunches.
✔️Step 6: Repeat steps 1-3 for snacks paying close attention to what you need to get in all your containers for the day.
✔️Step 7: Add in whatever you need for the rest of the family/household so you only shop once. 🙂
—I suggest picking just one or two NEW recipes each week so you don’t get stressed out trying new things.—
