Luckily this is a short week for us (we’re going to Maine on Thursday!) but I still wanted to do some meal planning and make sure we had some good stuff to eat before we left. I tried to keep most of the meals simpler, with only one dinner “recipe”.
As you can see I end up repeating alot of my snacks/lunches/breakfasts because I find what works and just go with it. I think I have made Amy’s black bean brownies about 5 times now and we just can’t get enough!
I’ve been eating *mostly* paleo foods just because I am trying to find more things I like that are whole, natural, unprocessed, and it’s always good to increase consumption of fruits and vegetables. At one point in my life the only vegetable I ate was broccoli, so I’ve come a long way.
Some non-paleo foods that I still eat occasionally are beans, plain greek yogurt, peanut butter, and alcohol. I’m sure there are more like the occasional flour when baking but I’ve been learning that there are alot of way to avoid using sugar and white/wheat flours. When I go out to eat its much harder, so I am really flexible with that (and its usually just once a week on the weekends or while traveling). I know I will need to adjust once I am back in marathon training mode- at this point I don’t have enough foods to fuel all that running!
Here was my prep for this week:
Looks like it should be another week of delicious meals!
Are you meal planning this week?
How do you increase your calorie intake while marathon training?
