Week 2 Meal Plan

For week 2, still start your mornings off drinking an 8oz cup of warm water with a quarter lemon squeezed in and a 1/4 teaspoon of pink Himalayan salt stirred in. This will kick start your digestive system and boost your energy. See the benefits here –> No Caffeine Energy Boost. Do this at least 30 minutes before a meal.

Continue to use the Meal Plan PDF that is in a protective sleeve on your fridge that you printed out during the Week 1 Meal Plan. This will help you stay on track for dinners throughout the week. Simply erase Week 1’s meal plan and write the following meal plan on the menu:

Lulu Lively’s Week 2 Meal Plan

Monday: Gimme Some Oven’s Grilled Chicken with Pineapple Avocado Salsa

Tuesday: Naked Burger with Creamed Spinach and Marinated Roma Tomatoes

Wednesday: Williams-Sonoma’s Grilled Beef with Salsa Verde (I leave the anchovy fillets out)

Thursday: Yummy Healthy Easy’s Easy Pesto Pita Bread Pizza (add cubed chicken for protein)

Friday: Serious Eats’ Cilantro and Lime Marinated Chicken Fajita Kabobs

Saturday: Cooking Classy’s Panko Crusted Honey Mustard Salmon

Sunday: {Crockpot} Chicken Taco Salad

**All dinners should be served with your choice of berries, veggies, and/or side salad (such as the Farm Fresh Salad or a Strawberry Avocado Salad – sliced strawberries, cubed avocado, feta cheese, fresh ground pepper and a squirt of fresh squeezed lemon juice). Avoid consuming tropical fruit at night for they are higher in sugar and can keep you up.

Make certain to drink enough water throughout the day. The amount you need to consume is half your body weight in ounces. So, drink up!

Make certain to have healthy snacks in between meals to avoid starvation mode (when you wait too long to eat and your body stores your last meal as fat). Such as a handful of almonds with dried cranberries/cherries, half a cup of Greek yogurt with 1/4 of a melon and 1/2 TB of local honey, an apple sliced with 1-1 1/2 TB almond butter for dipping, carrots/bell pepper with hummus, or 2 celery sticks with almond butter.

For Breakfast and Lunch ideas see Week 1 Meal Plan at the bottom of the post.
