Avoid Bad Eats

As you may already know, if you don’t have a go-to meal, it’s easy to put off making your meals for the week, leaving you scavenging for food during the week. That’s no fun. It cost extra money and makes you fat :(

 
Here are the basics to designing your personal go-to meal:
 
1)   protein –
chicken, lean beef, lean turkey, eggs, etc.
2)   carbohydrates – brown rice, whole wheat pasta, lintels, beans, quinoa, etc.
3)   fat – avocado, olive oil, peanuts, etc. (if your meat has enough fat, don’t worry about adding extra fat here)
4)   vegetables – frozen mixed veggies, green beans, spinach, zucchini, etc.


Example go-to meal:
1)   4.75 lbs 99% lean taco seasoned turkey meat – protein
2)   4 bags boil in bag brown rice and 3 cans low sodium black beans – carbohydrates
3)   no avocado needed – fat
4)   2 cans low sodium corn – veggies/carbs
