Meal Plan Resources

Meal Plan Resources

When you first start your health and fitness or weight loss journey, you may think, "What CAN I eat??"  The answer is ... A LOT more than you think.  The things that you SHOULD be eating, you can generally eat MORE of than the calorie-laden foods you might be used to eating! 

There happens to be a great resource that I frequently refer to -- Michi's Ladder . It is a 5-tier list of foods that help YOU to differentiate between the foods that you need to be eating and the foods that you DO NOT need to be eating.

I generally try to stay within the top two tiers of Michi's Ladder .  These are the healthiest foods that you can fuel your body with. I stray into Tier 3 whenever I have hamburgers or want to splurge and have pancakes for breakfast one morning! 

I generally stay away from the 4th and 5th tiers unless I have a special occasion or family event to attend. I always feel poorly whenever I eat from those tiers, so I try to avoid them as much as possible.
I also follow a 1300-1500 calorie low-carb plan, as my body does not process starches and carbohydrates as efficiently as it did before I had children. A typical day in my diet looks something like the following:
Breakfast - Regular or Vegan Chocolate Shakeology w/ 8 oz. coconut milk and ice
Snack - 1 1/2 oz. tuna salad with 3 melba toast rounds
Lunch - Chicken Bruschetta Salad Wrap
Snack - Celery sticks and cucumber rounds with Ranch Greek Yogurt Dip
Supper - Baked Italian Chicken with sautéed spinach or roasted asparagus
Another great resource that I often use for recipes, etc, is The Eat Clean Diet by Tosca Reno. I also own the The Eat Clean Diet Cookbooks, as they have tons of great recipes that not only keep me on point with my diet, but keep my family happy and healthy!
If you would like a personal meal plan with recipes, please don't hesitate to contact me at !  I look forward to helping you with your health and fitness goals!!
