I’ve mentioned before that the best way to stick to any kind of diet is to plan ahead. That’s why I try to plan our weeks’ meals ahead of time on Sundays. It saves me a ton of time and stress through the week, especially when I’m on the go a lot with classes or meetings.
Please feel free to adjust the recipes and snacks to your preference. Enjoy!

Remember to give yourself a little wiggle room — if you’re too strict with every meal and snack and you miss one, you may feel guilty and splurge. Instead, consider the above meal plan a general blueprint. Improvise when necessary, and if you fall off the wagon one day, just hop back on the next.
