Since I had the day off from all of my jobs, and Shawn’s at work/seeing his friends tonight, I chose to be productive:
Stocked up at Aldi’s today, my favorite store ever! Recently I’ve been getting really into budgeting and trying to get the best deals for my buck, so after carefully planning out my meals/snacks, I came up with how much of each food I would (approximately need) for a week. I’m still experimenting with food so I don’t get super bored with the typical “bro diet” of broccoli and chicken, but we all have to start somewhere right?
- 7 individual containers of 1 cup Kashi go lean original (or even 1/2 cup quick oats if you have that) with unsweetened almond milk and 1/2 scoop of Gold Standard Chocolate Whey protein powder (I had a super overripe banana so I broke that up and tossed it in the containers as well)
- chicken and broccoli: I don’t have a lot of room in my fridge (since shawn likes to prep all his food as well) so keeping all my chicken in 2-3 containers and broccoli in 2-3 containers works well for me instead of breaking them down into 7 lunches and 7 dinners
other lunch/dinner ideas with the items I bought:
- chicken fajita wraps: chicken, peppers, onions, salsa, all grilled and tucked nicely in a low carb wrap
- chicken with mixed vegetables in a salad
(can you tell I love chicken???) I always aim for chicken breast tenderloins because they are packed with protein , 0 carbs, and 1-2 g fat.
