Sample Meal Plan Example 6

Sample Meal Plan Example 6

Another photo collage of a typical day with six meals for me. People are always so surprised at how much food I eat!

M1 (5:30am) – yes, I realize this looks like a weird, deformed blob. Sorry. I never claimed to be a food photographer :) This is a protein pancake. I put 6 egg whites, 1/2 cup old fashioned oats, dash of salt, 1 tsp baking powder, and probably about 1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (I just eyeballed it). Blend together for about 20 seconds or so or med-high speed. You actually can mix in a bowl, I just find it easier to use my blender. Cook like a regular pancake. Spray pan with non-stick cooking spray and cook on med heat on stovetop. I made two pancakes, but the first one turned out pretty thin (even when making “regular” pancakes my first one never turns out well!) and the second one was a little too big. I used 1/2 c. of unsweetened applesauce and sprinkled cinnamon on top instead of syrup. You could do sugar free syrup if you wanted, just use very sparingly and don’t use sugar-free syrup every time you make these. I also had 2 cups of coffee with unsweetened almond milk.

Post Workout (7:30am) protein shake w/ 1/2 frozen banana and 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

M2 (9am) 4oz salsa chicken (made last week and put in freezer in pre-measured baggies), mini bell peppers

M3 (12pm) leftover stuffed pepper from last night (scroll through wall photos to see pics from last night). I added 1/3 c. brown rice on side (that I had cooked in bulk on sunday) because the peppers didn’t have a full serving of rice in them (each serving prob had 1/3 c. rice maybe a little more, so I got somewhere between 2/3 and 3/4 c. rice in this meal)

M4 (3pm) 3 mini chicken meatballs. My recipe is a little different than Jamie Eason’s I will try to get my recipe posted shortly. On the side I had sliced cucumbers with distilled white vinegar and truvia sprinkled on top. This reminds of a cucumber salad my grandma used to make and one of my favorite veggie snacks.

M5 (6pm) grilled chicken (that I had cooked on Sunday), sauteed red onions, portabella mushrooms, and broccoli on side (just used a spray of non-stick olive oil spray and 1 clove fresh garlic for seasoning). 1 slice Ezekial bread toasted with garlic powder on top (tastes sort of like garlic bread to me). My husband worked late tonight, so I just used stuff I had pre-cooked in the fridge for a quick dinner. Took maybe 5 minutes to prepare? Maybe 10.

M6 (9pm) Frozen Chocolate Peanut Butter Egg White Dessert.  I eat all six at once.

Hope this is helpful for some of you! :)
