Hormone Balancing Diet – My First Meal Plan

Hello! Well this has taken me a while to publish.. I am so sorry and think it is a case of overthinking it all again πŸ˜‰

So here is one weeks meal plan… I have to say that when I planned this out I ate so much better and was in control (and I lost the most weight!) When I don’t meal plan it all goes to pot… they do say

“If you fail to plan then plan to fail”

and I think this applies to healthy eating too.

I am sharing my meal plan with you and will then get the wonderful Leanne Trainer to run her eye over and feedback and will share her tips with you too.Β  I am now aware that my go to food is chicken… not sure if this is good or bad πŸ˜‰

So Monday:

  • Breakfast: Bowl of Bran-flakes and banana
  • Snack: handful of nuts and an apple
  • Lunch: Roast sweet potato with tuna and light mayo with a side salad
  • Snack: handful of seeds with some dark chocolate
  • Dinner: Roast chicken with mash, carrots and peas

Tuesday:

  • Breakfast: bowl of Bran-flakes and banana
  • Snack: handful of nuts and an apple
  • Lunch: chicken salad with left over chicken from yesterday
  • Snack: handful of seeds with some dark chocolate
  • Dinner: homemade veg soup. I tend to do carrot and coriander with red lentils for protein. Happy to do a video if it would help!

Wednesday:

  • Breakfast: two eggs, half and avocado on wholemeal toast.
  • Snack: handful of nuts and an apple
  • Lunch: home made chicken pastries (I bought the pastry pre-made and was dead simple and more for the kids… again happy to share if I can find the recipe again!) with some salad
  • Snack: banana with some dark chocolate
  • Dinner: Cottage Pie with veg

Thursday:

  • Breakfast: Two eggs, bacon and tinned tomatoes
  • Snack: handful of nuts and an apple
  • Lunch: left over cottage pie
  • Snack: banana with some dark chocolate
  • Dinner: French cod with olives by Joe Wicks (recipe here ) It was yummy but could have done with some bread πŸ˜‰

Friday

  • Breakfast: Bowl of Bran-flakes and banana
  • Snack: handful of nuts and an apple
  • Lunch: left over cod from last night
  • Snack: seeds with some dark chocolate
  • Dinner: Home made chicken curry made with tinned tomatoes and spaces with brown rice (I am now getting frozen rice which takes 2 mins to cook!)

Saturday

  • Breakfast: Two eggs, half and avocado on wholemeal toast.
  • Snack: handful of nuts and an apple
  • Lunch: Beans and cheese jacket with side salad.
  • Snack: seeds with some dark chocolate
  • Dinner: Cheesy chorizo chicken Another Joe Wicks recipe here which was super yummy…

Sunday

  • Breakfast: Two eggs, bacon, eggs and tomatoes
  • Snack: handful of nuts and an apple
  • Lunch: Pork roast with mash, carrots and broccoli
  • Snack: seeds with some dark chocolate
  • Dinner: “picky” tea which turns out to be my kids favourite now. Basically chopped up raw veg, toast and humous with a small amount of cheese too. Basically any left over so some Chorizo, chicken, salad…

I was lazy with snacks and was going to create me some of these but I was busy and needed to keep it simple..

Honestly meal planning was so freeing but also quite time consuming. I would love to make this a habit of mine and will share a few more. Ideally I would like 4 weekly meal plans which I can rotate but need to do some work on them so they are more varies, need Leanne’s expert eye over it for nutrition and also perhaps be a bit smarter with ingredients so they go further.

Hope this was helpful to you and would LOVE for you to share some clean eating tips or recipes in the comments below (on the blog!)

Love and health
