Meal Plan Monday on the Genetix Program – 2/17/2014

Welcome to this week’s Meal Plan Monday!

Entering Week 6 of the Genetix Program, woot woot! Weigh in for week 5 is coming tomorrow, and it’s not going to be good. Had a few emotional setbacks this past week that sent me into a tailspin with my eating habits, but today, it’s back on the wagon.

Starting today, my friend Nikki and I are doing what we call the BODY SHOWDOWN. For ten weeks, we’re going to compete with each other to earn the highest percentage of weight loss. The loser buys the winner lunch at the end of the game. We’ll share our weigh ins and such in the comments of each Meal Plan Monday post, so if you’d like to follow/play along (though you’ll have to find a local buddy to compete with/take you to lunch at the end!) feel free!

Anyway, on to the meal plan! 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!
