Meal Plan #1

Meal plans designed from a girl who's lost 100lbs! Recipes are lightened up versions of options the whole family will love.

I have been meal planning for over two years now and I absolutely love it! I am a list person. I love organization and I especially love to save money. Creating a meal plan before I go to the store keeps me from buying junk and wasting food. So I’ve decided to share with you all my meal plan each week along with the grocery list! Keep in mind that this plan is to feed two people for a week. I choose two options for breakfast, two for lunch, a few snacks, and three dinner options. We eat leftovers every other night and that leaves us one night to eat out! Adjust the amount you buy if you have a larger family or choose an extra dinner item! 🙂 This week I went to Trader Joe’s…

    About how many calories per person is this? I know a lot of people find answering this question uncomfortable, but I'm just starting IIFYM and have no idea what my 1,600 kcal/day is supposed to look like. thanks!

      When I'm not pregnant I eat about 1750 cals. All you'd have to do is adjust portions to how much you are supposed to eat.
