Menu Plans

Initially I designed the meal plan to aid in grocery shopping. I used it like a shopping list of the “better choices” to choose from. I quickly realized that it could also be used in meal planning. Here’s how it works…Build your meal around the protein.

1) Choose one protein (the size of the palm of your hand = 1 serving).
2) Choose 2 carbs (the size of your fist = 2 servings).
3) Choose 1 fat (the size of two thumbnails = 1 serving).Now you have a meal. This is for an average sized person. Obviously if you’re a bigger framed person you would adjust your serving sizes appropriately.Enjoy!
