I recently signed up for a training plan with celebrity trainer. Because of my unique nutritional needs, he sent me a list of approved foods and snacks for me to pick from each week. Once I looked at the list of items, I was able to craft an approved meal plan. I wanted to share with you my easy, clean and affordable meal prep for weight loss.
Shopping on a Budget for Meal Prepping
I purchased 80% of the items at Central Market, bought my bulk items at Costco and got the rest at Aldi. The cost of all items were $100 and enough for two people for a full week.
Meal Prepping for the Week
Many of the items such as cheese, meats and greens carried over to the next week so I’ll save even more money over time.
Breakfast: Green Smoothie
Green Smoothie: 2 cups of spinach, 1/2 cup organic frozen berries, handful of ice, 1 scoop of Plant Fusion protein and 1-2 cups of water
I also added any additional supplements in here such as fish oil, green powder, etc.
Snack: Half cup of grapefruit and more water.
Lunch: Mason Jar Salad
Mason Jar Salad with 3 oz of grilled salmon or 2-3 boiled eggs.
Note: I prepared my salads quickly by pre-cutting and separating the toppings for the salad in a bento box. I picked 2-3 toppings and placed them at the bottom of a mason jar. I topped with dressing, seasonings and greens.
Snack: Green Tea and handful of almonds/mixed (nuts aren’t shown). Sometimes I have a half of quest bar too.
The sauce on the salmon was made with mustard and lemon.
Through out the day, I had several cups of green tea and tons of water. I probably drink 96 ounces of water during the day. If I was hungry, I would also snack on a a big bowl of celery, carrots, sweet peppers or have a banana. So far, so good!
Simple, easy and very affordable!
