Healthy Eating Meal Plan I


After the straight up pounds of white sugar and flour I ate over the past few months of holiday celebrations, I am more than ready to go back to a healthy, clean, mostly #Whole30-based diet. I'm strongly aware now of how eating even a little bit of sugary sweets makes me crave more and more, like msg, or heroin (ahem, so I hear). So for three weeks I strictly cut out all added sugars, processed foods (including sausage!), flour/gluten and dairy/cheese. I felt so much lighter, healthier and balanced after last September's Whole 30 that I am even limiting grains and legumes to just a few meals a week. I really need to give my immune system a chance to heal. 


After going through some Pinterest files, drafting a seven-day meal plan, and going to two different grocery stores, I feel stocked up and ready to tackle the challenge of eating well. Having a full week of menu options planned out really takes a lot of the stress away. I like to pick out six or seven main dishes for dinners. I have two breakfast favorites, augmented with a few more options for variation throughout the week. Most lunches are leftovers, or there's a handful of acceptable options from the restaurants near my work. I don't like to set the daily menus ahead of time; instead, I decide on the day of which ones I feel like eating and have time for. Keep reading for my full meal plan below...
