In lesson 5 of beautiful you, you are going to provided with some resources to create your own meal plan, or use some meal plans provided (Created by members of the Beautiful U LIVE group).
I recommend you download both, as they will give you ideas, as well as provide you with grocery lists and how to cook foods. It will also give you ideas on how to add flavor using spices, and open your mind to some different foods that you may not have heard of before.
They are attached below here:
Meal Plans (DONE FOR YOU)
You can use all of the information on portions from Lesson 4 and directly apply it to these meal plans.
The Done For You meal plans contain one of the following in each meal:
Use the portions that we predetermined to those meals to customize it to your needs.
Quick Healthy Breakfast
A lot of us have trouble in the mornings having time to get in our first (and arguably most important) meal of the day.
For this breakfast it's going to be in shake form.
It's going to include all of the nutrients you'd normally get from a full meal.
The other benefits of this shake version is it is partially digested so it doesn't take as much energy from you to digest it!
This leaves more energy to go towards your most important tasks in the beginning of the day!
Whatever amount of protein you need in a meal,
Use your protein source as SFH Pure Protein Powder.
You can buy this at our gym on discount or online at https://www.sfh.com/shop/whey-protein/
For your fat source, use Almond or Nut Milk (preferably unflavored).
For your carb, eat a fruit, either an apple or banana, which is equal to approximately 25g of carbs.
For your veggie, experiment with some different green smoothie mixes that might go well with your protein powder.
At The End of The Week, What Happens When My Prepped Food Runs Out?
I've had this problem, and it takes a few weeks to really gauge how much grocery shopping you'll need to do. When it gets later in the week, your cooked food from Sunday might start to get a little bit sketchy, and you need to cook again.
The only problem is, it's Wednesday, there a million things going on, and you have no willpower.
There are a few tools you can use that allow you to cook "hands off" that have been a life saver for me.
- Crock Pot
There are SO MANY Crock Pot Recipes online. All you need to do is throw it in the crock pot, leave it, and pick it up 3 or 6 hours later. You can do your veggies and meat in here.
2. Rice Cooker
Rice cookers are very similar, and allow you to do rice, quinoa, couscous, etc. It will automatically turn off when its done! Directions normally come with the rice cookers themselves, but they are super simple.
From this lesson, the biggest takeaways you should have are that
- You have meal plans you can follow buy
- You have a simple guide you can follow to make your own meals
- You know how to get your breakfasts in quickly in the morning
- You are able to continue eating healthy towards the end of the week!
We'll see you in the next lesson!
