This list was compiled after my husband and I’s decision to not buy chicken breast for a few weeks. Who else is super tired of chicken breast!? Yikes! We’ve been mainly sticking to lean pork chops, chicken sausages, and lean ground beef but I wanted to share a few items that I picked up this week that are a little different. Hope this gets your creative juices flowing!
- Jimmy Dean Turkey Sausage Bowls These are tasty for a quick and different breakfast option. Macros are 8g fat, 19g carbs, and 22g protein. Add more protein by mixing in a few egg whites half way through cooking.
2. Weight Control Instant Oatmeal These packets are great because they have 29g carbs with 7g protein. I always add a scoop of protein powder into my oatmeal but it’s nice that this adds even more! Also the banana bread flavor is bomb.
3. Publix Brand Philly Cheese Chicken Sausage If you don’t have access to a Publix I feel bad for you, son! Publix has so many macro friendly options. These are a staple in our house. They are absolutely DELICIOUS! Each link is 6g fat and 12g protein so save up some fat for these! They also have Apple & Gouda, Spinach & Feta, and Artichoke & Parmesan. They are all great! 4. Trader Joe’s Tri Tip Roast Y’all, you need to get on this right NOW! It is so good and SUPER macro friendly as well as affordable! For 4 oz it’s only 7g fat to 32g protein. AMAZING! The pre-marinated Santa Maria option is so yum. Follow the cooking instructions, you’ll be glad you did!
5. Frozen Yogurt Ice cream is a staple in my diet. I have a bowl almost every single night before bed. I fit it into my macros and work the rest of my day around it. It keeps me on track because I have something to look forward to. But I hate having only one serving, I want at least two! The problem is I can never save enough fat for two servings, so I’ve been buying frozen yogurt. Not as tasty at my beloved ice cream but with all the tummy mix-ins it’s worth saving the fat. What I love about the frozen yogurt is one serving has 4-6g protein, so with two servings I’m sneaking in 8-12g protein! The macros for this yogurt is 5g fat, 23g carbs, and 4g protein. They have a ton of delicious flavors like Mint Chocolate Cookie and Peanut Butter Cup. Yum!
