This week’s plan is based on the 21 Day Fix plan, which is simple, portion-controlled clean eating.

These are not written in stone, but generally I choose 2-3 recipes for breakfasts, lunches and snacks. Rotate throughout the week.
Choose a maximum of 3 dinners, and make two of them do double duty, aka planned leftovers.
You may need to tweak the guidelines for your family.
My plan is flexible. I don’t necessarily plan “baked potatoes” for lunch on Monday. All of the meals are quick and easy, so I choose what sounds good on a particular day.
I prep as I go. I don’t do a massive cooking session on the weekend and then reheat meals throughout the week. I don’t like spending hours in the kitchen and I also don’t like eating food that was cooked days earlier.
Most of my meals don’t require official recipes. I’ll share recipes with you, but I rarely cook with an official recipe. So you won’t see a recipe for “baked potato with broccoli, cheddar and Greek yogurt.” I’m confident you can bake (or nuke) a potato and throw some goodies on top 🙂

Here are the recipes for this week’s menu:
Instant Steel Cut Oats with Egg & Parmesan: Mix one packet of instant steel cut oats with water in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 2 minutes. Stir in one egg and microwave for one minute more. Top with 1/2 ounce shredded Parmesan. It looks awful but it is one of my favorite breakfasts!
Quest Bars (they’re cheapest purchased directly from Quest)
Breakfast Salad with Bacon & Avocado (yes, it’s perfect for lunch!)
