GROCERIES FOR THE WEEK (5 DAYS)
5 140-calorie amounts of chocolate – whichever type of chocolate you prefer!
3 bags lettuce
2 sheets bacon
8 bell peppers – I’m using red here, but you can use whichever kind you like!
8 cups baby carrots
2 dozen eggs
3 1/2 cups mixed nuts – I’m mostly using pecans here, but choose whatever nut you like best!
Concerned about too many eggs? Here’s a great article from Healthline about how many eggs to eat per day
EACH DAY: 1677 CALORIES
51% FAT; 13% PROTEIN; 36% CARB
I use the Lose It app to track food – click on an image to enlarge it if you’re interested.
1/2 cup oatmeal dry, (cook in microwave with water)
Oatmeal toppings: 1 medium banana, sliced; 1/4 cups nuts; 1 tsp cinnamon

140-calorie amount of chocolate (any kind you like is 100% fine!)
1/4 cup nuts (I’m using pecans here, but choose whichever you like best

1/2 bell pepper
1/8 cup nuts
2 cups lettuce
3 strips bacon, cooked (I cooked these in the oven for 25 minutes at 350 degrees, on a cookie sheet)
1/2 bell pepper. sliced (use the other half from Snack)
1/2 cup baby carrots, chopped
1/2 small avocado
2 hard boiled eggs, cut into fourths
2 Tbsp low calorie creamy dressing or 1 Tbsp higher calorie dressing (I’m using 1 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Feta-Style dressing here)
Note: I’ve tried to make this meal prep as EASY as possible – so every single day is the same. HOWEVER, if you’re anything like me, it’s quite boring to eat the same thing every day! Please feel free to switch out different protein sources, vegetables, and fats. Also, as with the rest this website, this information is general, not specific to you. You, personally, may need different amounts of calories, nutrients, etc.
