Before I show you my meals, I need to say that not every day looks like this! I do not like eating the same thing more than twice a week (either prepped 2 of the same meal, or a supper + leftovers), so I never prep the same thing for all 5 days. I do have my go-to meals, but I enjoy so many foods that I have to switch it up.
So with that being said, here is an example of what I may eat on a Burn Day (more about carb cycling here). Lots of variety and not boring at all!
7:15 am – I am usually drinking a meal replacement shake, but on days that I’m not, eggs are my favorite low carb option. I like to put vegetables and ham in a scramble, or do a Mexican inspired plate with avocado and salsa.
10:00am – Snack time! These P3 packages are perfect for an on-the-go snack. I usually get this one, with ham, turkey, and cheese.
12:30pm – Lunch is almost always something I have prepped because I come home for lunch and have my 4-year-old and baby here needing attention. In this case it was tuna patties I had previously made and leftover carrots from a previous meal.
3:00pm – Raw Veggies are my go-to for low carb snacks.
5:30-6:00pm – I try to have the same meal as my family but eliminate the carb. My family had chicken apple sausage, brussels sprouts, and ranch potatoes. As you can see, I did not have potatoes.
7:45 – Optional Snack – Sometimes I am still hungry, sometimes I am not. I do like to have some sort of treat at the end of the day. Light Greek yogurt is an easy, sweet snack.
