Have you gone to the grocery store without a plan, or even worse, when you’re hungry!? You know how it goes.. you get home, $200 later and you end up with ton of crap you don’t need/want in your house if you’re trying to lose weight.
🎈If you’re meal prepping this weekend and need a game plan for the grocery store, I got ya covered! I typically buy the same 20-30 things every week cause 1) I’m lazy 2) I eat the same things most days and 3) it saves me time/energy.
🐠PROTEIN: aim for mostly low fat options
•skinless chicken breast
•extra lean ground beef/turkey instead of 80/20.
•1/2 cup egg whites + 1 egg instead of 3 whole eggs.
•white fish instead of fattier fish like salmon.
🥜HEALTHY FATS: eat these! just keep an eye on portion sizes b/c they are higher calorie.
🥔CARBS (starchy): eat these! a fistful w/ each meal is a good place to start. males eat 2 fists.
•all kinds of potatoes
•quinoa, white rice, brown rice, couscous, farro
•corn, peas, carrots
🥗CARBS (fibrous): load up on these low calorie goodies to eat more food volume.
•cauliflower, broccoli, squash, zucchini
•cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, onions
•Aim for spices/herbs/seasoning instead of marinades (they have tons of extra calories)
•Don’t drink your cals: opt for water, tea, coffee, seltzer
•Cooking spray, not olive oil (huge calorie saver)
•Protein powder w/ minimal carbs/fats
•PB2 in place of nut butter as a lower fat option 🌟 If you’re doing some grocery shopping today, I hope this helped you! Bookmark to save for later :)
