Time for a meal plan

I never make meal plans for anyone.  Why? 

I think if I give you a grocery list with "safe" foods and "not safe" foods you'll learn to make better decisions.  If I give you a set list with 7-10 meals on it the majority of people will make one mistake and then trash the whole thing or they will get bored with the same foods and throw it away.

However, I'm going against what I normally do and I'm making a sample meal plan(s) for anyone interested.

Here we go -

Meal 1. 2 Whole eggs, and 3 egg whites plus 3 pieces of turkey bacon. 7am

Meal 2. BCAA powder and creatine (For me this is around 10am)

Meal 3 Lunch.  3-4 pieces lean brisket, 4-5 pieces deli turkey, 1/2 cup green beans, 2 cups of water.  I usually have more veggies here or a huge salad with no dressing.  I use avocado and salsa as a dressing.

Meal 4.  4 pieces of turkey, hand full of grapes or blue berries, or raspberries.  Or I skip this

Meal 5 DINNER:  A huge salad with grilled chicken, steak or tuna or any type of grilled meat (fish, shrimp, chicken breast, steak, lean ground turkey.

That is a typical day for me.

Here are the veggies I always use:  lettuce, spinach, collard greens, cabbage, tomatoes, onions, red pepper, yellow pepper, green pepper, asparagus, broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, green beans, celery, sweet potatoes and olives.

Meats:  Fish is first- salmon, trout, tuna, and mackerel.  Chicken Breast, turkey breast, lean ground turkey, lean cuts of pork, shrimp and lean lean cuts of red meat.

Fruit: berries, apples, pears, peaches, plums, bananas, oranges, and grapefruit.  I limit fruit to one time per day.
