Eat Up!

After clients have been working on their meal plans for a while, they often get bored with their food options.  Not because I tell them that's all they can eat, but because that's all they think to eat.  Meal plans are really just a blue print, the options you can make out of them are endless.  You just have to get a little creative.  This week, thanks to my new iphone, I've been taking pictures of my lunches and a few other things, so here is a week of what I've eaten!

Sunday:  Eggs and rice crackers with TJ goat's milk creamy cheese, Roasted chicken thighs and big salad, grilled salmon and sauteed green beans (and red wine with Rich, Ryan's dad, he did the grilling)

Monday:  Eggs and Veggies, Applegate Roast beef Rudis Wrap with carrot sticks and guacamole (I was at the car shop and needed something I could eat with my fingers while waiting, 1/2 lara bar, leftover chicken thighs and green beans.

Tuesday: Eggs and Veggies, leftover chicken thighs and 1/2 sweet potato and salad, pearberry smoothie for supper between clients, 1 scrambled egg with cheese and almond flour carrot muffin as a bedtime snack.

Wednesday: Eggs and Veggies, post workout whey protein shake, sauteed ground beef and purple cabbage on 1/2 leftover sweet potato, raw cheddar cheese and TJ bison jerky mid afternoon,  leftover chicken sausage thing I made a while back and froze,  1/2 lara bar and 2 hardboiled eggs with Hain mayo as bedtime snack.

Thursday: 2 Mini salmon loafs and veggies and 1/3 pear, last of the chicken thighs with 1/2 sweet potato and frozen broccoli, Ground beef/cabbage on big salad.

Friday:  Eggs and Veggies Duh!  Ground beef/cabbage over 1/2 leftover sweet potato, supper out with mom and dad (I had a grilled salmon cobb salad).

Saturday: Broccoli & Tomato frittata before starting work on the new house, chicken salad and veggies from Byerlys, 2 homemade protein balls,  crockpot chicken taco salad with the whole family!  And wine, of course.

As you can see, by making a few bigger batches of things, chicken thighs, baked sweet potatoes, and my random beef mixture, I was able to eat a variety of foods without getting bored.  It does take a little planning, but I was able to eat well all week long.  The key is making sure you have enough ingredients on hand.  Oh, and a big enough lunch box to pack it all in!
