Plan With Me: Carb Cycling Meal Plan + Food Prep

FullSizeRender-6.jpg

I've said it a hundred times but I really think Sunday is my favorite day of the week. It is my clean slate. A day to relax, but also get a head start on the week ahead. We always get groceries on Saturday so I spend some time food prepping on Sunday, as well as cleaning as much as I can. I love starting Monday off with a clean house and lots of delicious food!FullSizeRender (6)

This weekend I made applesauce for the first time and it was so much easier than I thought it would be! I'm not sure why I anticipated it being some lengthy or involved process. Just peel the apples, throw them in a pot of water, let it boil for 10 minutes, and puree in a blender.

This was the first time we fed babe with a spoon and I definitely appreciated how much less mess there was! I still prefer baby led weaning as I've already noticed a huge improvement in his fine motor skills from spending so much time trying to pick up pieces of food and put them in his mouth. IMG_8408I'm trying out a few recipes this week from the Oh She Glows cookbook.

Breakfast: Eggs with jalapeno tofu or peanut butter oatmeal

Lunch: Chickpea egg salad or Indian lentil cauliflower soup

Dinner: Protein smoothie

Snacks: Nuts, fruit, crackers with guacamole, hard boiled eggs.

Premier Protein sent me some of their newest flavor to try out. I had one yesterday while getting ready to go out to eat. I always make better menu choices when I'm not starving when I sit down to order!

You guys -- I didn't think I would love it (despite the fact that I eat 1-2 bananas every day) but it's giving Strawberries & Cream a run for my favorite flavor. The 'cream' flavor in this Bananas & Cream is just so rich and creamy. I just got them a few days ago and only have one left that I'll now have to hoard for a special occasion.

IMG_8389Aside from my food prepping and cleaning I think we may try to take baby to an Easter event this afternoon. I'm also finalizing the first week of workouts for my online boot camp starting next Monday! I have such an amazing group of women signed up and only a few spots left so if you are interested definitely register soon or send me an email if you have any questions.

Are you doing any food prep today? Oh She Glows was the first blog I ever read! Do you remember yours?
