Meal Plan and Supplements

So I've just recently decided to rework my meal plan.
I've been trying to rework my work out schedule with my hectic work schedule so, I had to get my meals right too!
I don't completely agree with that, it's definitely made in the gym too! :)

Now, not all meal plans work for the same people because everyone's body is different but, I wanted to share with ya'll what's on my daily meal plan:

1 Cup Gluten Free Cereal w/ Almond Milk Light + 4 egg whites
(I don't always have time to get the 4 egg whites cooked so I substitute it for a 100 calorie Muscle Milk Protein Shake)

Snack 1:
1 Simple Carb/Good Fat
Whole Grapefruit w/ 15 Raw Almonds

4-5 oz. Lean Protein/ 1 Cup Veggies/ 6 oz. carbs
Tuna w/ Pico w/ Reduced Fat Wheat Thins
(This I will end up changing up weekly. Next week I plan to do ground turkey, mixed veggies, and some red potatoes)

Snack 2:
Simple Carb/Protein
Whole Apple w/ 1/2 cup Low Fat Greek Yogurt w/ 1 Packet Stevia

Protein Shake

5 oz. Protein/2 Cups Veggies/No Carbs
Chicken w/ Mixed Veggies
(I'm finding it hard to even eat all of this, last night I reduced it down to one cup of veggies)

I stick to this plan 6 days a week and I have one "cheat" day a week. I know this might be frowned upon for some people but when I say cheat I'm not going to eat an entire pizza or go crazy eating ice cream. It's more so going to get some sushi and having a glass of wine or something, or mimosas which I love at brunch!
I am also working out 4-5 times a week doing strength training and cardio.

I'm finding that it's really hard even eat everything I'm supposed to. Last night, I reduced the last meal to one cup of veggies because two was just SO much. I even found it hard to get all the chicken in too! Guess that's a good problem to have because usually I am really hungry through out the day!
I am also taking an array of different vitamins every day now.
This is what I'm taking:

Vitamin D- 1 a day- Good for the bones
B Complex- 1 a day- Breaks down fats proteins and carbs
Vitamin C- 1 a day- Antioxidant
Vitamin E- 1 a day- Boosts immune system
Acetyl L-Carnitine- 3 times a day with meals- Aminos
Omega 3- 2 times a day- Reduces inflammation throughout the body
CLA- 3 times a day with meals- Boosts metabolism
L Glutamine Powder- 1 a day with protein or preworkout- Enhances immune system and promotes muscle growth (Powder version)

Sounds like a lot, but it's not bad at all. I even got this cute little case to carry with me so I can remember to take my vitamins when I'm supposed to! 
I picked this up for about $2.00 at Walgreens.

Also, at Walgreens right now they are doing buy one get one free on Vitamins, so I was able to pick up all my vitamins for about $30.00 which I don't think is bad at all.

Let me know if you have any suggestions! :) 
I will do an update later on, on how this is working out for me! 


  1. I love posts like these! I like seeing how other people do their meal planning and prep. I hear ya on the whole it being hard to fit in all of your food. I get full pretty easy and have to space my meals out a little bit more so I can actually finish them. It's so hard to eat all that filling healthy food sometimes ;)

    1. I really really enjoy when people do posts like these too! It really gives you a ton of ideas, plus I like to change up my food every now and then! And YES! It's so hard eating all of that food!
