Meal Plan Monday on the Genetix Program – 2/10/2014

Welcome to this week’s Meal Plan Monday!

Entering Week 5 of the Genetix Program, woot woot! Weigh in for week 4 is coming tomorrow, but I’ve decided to start making a diligent effort to plan out each week’s meals so that I know exactly what to buy (saving money) as well has have my game face on for the week so there are no last minute bad decisions. This will also give you, my awesome readers, some insight into the wonderful world of healthy eating that Genetix is introducing me to!

You’ll notice in the lists below that snacks are broken up into 1.1 and 1.2, and 2.1 and 2.2. This is because we get two snacks a day, but they’re split into two parts, an hour apart. So, if I’d eat a greek yogurt with almonds, I have the greek yogurt at, say, 10:30am, and then the almonds at 11:30am, and then lunch would be at 12:30 or 1 pm. That keeps the metabolism boosted and working! Fruit and veggies can be used to further fortify snacks without counting as an individual snack in and of itself.

Mondays are ALWAYS vegetarian days, as are the days after you have your “meal off” for the week.

So, without any further delay, here’s what the menu for the week of 2/10/2014 is going to look like!
