As always, to see what this is all about and the guidelines I use to build my meals, visit the very first post in this series.
DAILY MEAL PLAN:
Breakfast: Overnight Apple Cinnamon Walnut Oatmeal
Yogurt: Fage, Trader Joe’s, Siggi’s
Oatmeal: Trader Joe’s, Quaker Old Fashioned Oatmeal, Bob’s Red Mill Old Fashioned Oatmeal
Chia seeds: Trader Joe’s sells chia seeds for fairly cheap, but your best bet is to visit the bulk bins at your local grocery store!
Walnuts: Diamond, but as with the chia seeds, I recommend bulk bins as that is where you’ll get the best deal!
Apples: I recommend using Macintosh of Jonamac for this dish
Lunch: Soup or chili, crackers, cheese stick and a piece of fruit
Soup: Amy’s Light in Sodium or try homemade like any of these comforting Fall meals
Crackers: Hint of Salt Triscuits, Trader Joe’s Woven Wheat Crackers, Mary’s Gone Crackers Original Crackers
Cheese: Cabot Snack Packs, Sargento
Snack: Apple with almond butter
Dinner: Turkey & Veggie-Loaded Pasta topped with a sprinkling of freshly shaved parmesan cheese; serve with a mixed greens side salad if you want even more veggies!
Whole Grain Pasta: Trader Joe’s 100% Whole Wheat Penne, Barilla
Ground turkey: I’m not picky about the brand, but I always look for turkey breast which ensures you’re getting a lean, all-white meat
Sauce: Trader Joe’s Arrabbiata, Publix Marinara
