Make-ahead Meal Plan & Weekly Food Prep {July 18th, 2016}

Make-ahead Meal Plan and Weekly Food Prep

Hello there! Sorry I’m a day late with my meal plan…again. If you joined my new Facebook group then you saw on my live video streaming that I was ready to go with my meal prep on Sunday. Well kinda. I actually had trouble talking and preparing food at the same time so I ended up just talking. I might be a food blogger but I ain’t no Rachel Ray. Haha. But I must say I LOOOOVE live streaming with all of you and absolutely love the new OYS Facebook group. Getting to talk with and meet my blog readers is pretty awesome. It reminds me that I’m not just talking to myself and there are many of you out there that take time out of your busy schedules to read what I have to say. Thank you.

Also, it’s been motivating and humbling to read about how my website has helped many of you achieve your weight loss goals. I mean I know that’s the whole point of my blog – to help you – but to meet real people who put my tips into practice really takes blogging to a different level for me. I appreciate hearing from all of you. It actually got me thinking. I would love to have some testimonials from those of you who changed their lifestyle using the tips and ideas on my blog, or more specifically from those of you who bought my ebook. I’ve sold almost 4000 ebooks and I would love to hear from those of you that purchased it and put my tips into practice. Send me an email and we will chat.

Anyway, I’ve been super busy with my blog. Like cray cray busy. I updated my ebook page and now I’m starting to work on my meal prep ecourse. That is going to be a BEAST!


Oh another thing I’m working on is personalizing my email a little bit more. Right now if you subscribe to my email list you get updates on my new posts every week. Well I want it to be waaaay more than that so I’m working on a couple email courses specially for my subscribers. Lots of courses my friends. You can sign up my email list here to be in the know.

Hmmmm, what else? I think that’s it. If you have any thoughts or suggestions for the new meal prep ecourse I would love to see them in the comments.

Let’s get to my meal plan because this mama has course writing to do.

My meal plan can be described as simple and mostly low carb this week. It’s too hot for fancy and I just don’t have the time. Also, I feel better eating low carb so that’s what I’m focusing on.  When I say low carb I don’t mean cutting out fruits I’m mostly referring to white pasta, rice, bread, and all the yummy carby food that I’ve been known to gorge on last month in the past.

You might also notice I’m eating a lot of the same this week. Again, I’m about simple. I will have other things on hand for my kiddos. Such as, peanut butter and jellies, lunch meat (I buy organic), and other easy meals. I also buy turkey hotdogs and organic hamburgers for the grill. Summer = easy food.

Here’s my menu over on Plan to Eat.  I love Plan to Eat. But if you don’t want to take my word for it then ask some of the OYS readers over in my Facebook Group. There are many PTE fans over there.

Plan to Eat Menu


Detox Green Smoothie

Blueberry and Kale Green Smoothie – I’m creating a similar smoothie bowl.

Homemade Pizza

Make-ahead tips

  • I have grilled chicken in the freezer that I made last week. I’ll use that for the chicken salad.
  • I know meatloaf might seem complicated but it’s actually super easy to make. I’ll make that on Thursday.
  • Can’t have a week without tacos or pizza so I’ll buy some fresh whole wheat dough from the grocery store today or tomorrow and enjoy a slice (or two) on Friday.


Hard-boiled eggs


Hummus and crackers or veggies

  • I made the hard-boiled eggs on Sunday.


That’s it for my meal plan this week. Have a great week!
