Having a plan for your week is an easy way to make sure you stay on track with your health goals. If you sit down on Sunday before you go grocery shopping and plan out all the meals for the week, you are more likely to stick with the plan and make big strides towards your goals. I have done some of the work for you, by creating a meal plan for you with easy recipes to go along with it.

Fair warning, I do plan leftovers into my meal plans, as I don’t have the time to cook every day. I also make one breakfast for the week and one lunch for the week. I change them up week to week, but using this method a. Saves time and b. Saves money. (It is a complete coincidence that every dinner came out to be 8 Smart Points!).
I usually try to include one crockpot meal a week. It’s just nice to have dinner done and waiting when you get home from kids activities. If you need a crockpot, you can use the link below to see what I recommend. I have a crockpot very similar to this, that I have had for over 10 years. I really love that you can brown meat on the stove-top in the liner, makes for one less dish. https://amzn.to/2GtJ7rx
The other thing that you will notice is the snack. I drink the Vega One Protein shakes for a snack. It is similar to Shakeology but way cheaper. You can find it here: https://amzn.to/2IoW4DN
So on each day, I have accounted for 19 points. If you are allowed more points you can either roll that over or have a small snack.
