I’ve actually gotten quite a few requests for this post recently, so, here are my suggestions, tips, and tricks to meal & menu planning!
Before you start to plan your meals for the week, first plan out what your overall diet will be like. This allows me to pick whatever veggies I am hankering for that day, or whatever was fresh at the market.
First, pick your proteins or staples. It is hard to buy exactly enough of something for just one meal, so its safe to say that you’ll be repeating a lot throughout the week.
After that, just scan down your meal plan again and think about what you can make ahead, to make your week even easier for yourself. The more you have ready to grab, the less likely you are to go for an easier or more convenient option.

Sit down with your Acceptable Food List and break it up into some meals you already know and love. 200 calorie meals, 300, 400, 500, etc. You can just pick and choose your meals based on the totals. Now, there are two ways you can do this and it must just be based on your own preference – you can be super specific, or guideline style.
Make yourself a prep-list. I do my prepping on Sundays, it helps like you wouldn’t believe!
But with some tweaks!). I want to eat low-fat, low-calorie, nutrient dense, and limited meats.
The first step then, would be to write a list of every fruit, vegetable, bean, nut, meat, etc.
Are you eating for a purpose – detox, weight loss, energy, etc? Think about your goals and needs.
