Hi. My name is Ashley and I am addicted to junk food. My rule of thumb has always been to eat really well during the week so I can "splurge" on the weekends. Should eating pizza twice, truffle fries, gourmet burgers, wine, and ice cream all included in that splurge? Eeks. I saw this meme on an Instagram account I follow this AM (@femalefitnesshelp) and felt compelled to share. Yup....this is me today. So maybe I had a heavy "treat yoself" weekend. But that is okay! Mondays are for fresh starts anyways! I sat down and got my good ole grocery list out and thought I would share it. By no means am I perfect, but I feel like as long as I have most of these items in the house, I can give myself enough options to stay healthy all week. I also am a super-nerd and print these out weekly, use my fancy hole punch, and put them in my planner. Sometimes I get crazy and print them on card stock. I love planners....have I mentioned that 100 times before? Don't worry one of my amazing clients got me addicted to this Happy Planner. It's been totally life changing. The things you can gel pen and highlight and sticker......the possibilities are endless. Ha. But for real, these lists are handy (and cute) I promise.
Here are some meal ideas that work with this list. Again....I feel like I get variety, nutrients, and don't have to buy a million ingredients.
Oatmeal with berries and almond milk
Salad with chicken
Tuna salad (made with avocado)
Carrots/peppers and hummus
Apple and peanut butter
Berries and yogurt
Nuts and yogurt
Salad with chicken
Chicken taco bowl
Quinoa and veggie bowl
Grilled veggies and chicken
Dinner pictured above: Grilled chicken spinach salad topped with quinoa, avocado, tomato and goat cheese. Grilled with lemon and olive oil. YUM.
Hope this helps, or at least gets you excited for back-to-school supply shopping!
I AM A 30-SOMETHING, FOOD-LOVING, FITNESS-OBSESSED, DIY-ING, WORK-A-HOLIC, MOMMY, DOGGY MOMMY & AND WIFEY.....THAT DECIDED TO SHARE MY LIFE WITH YOU. WELCOME AND ENJOY!
