This is the first week of trying this meal plan thing so we'll have to workout the kinks. It's 11th week of the year so that's where we will start so don't let the absence of week 1 deter you from trying a few of these recipes out. Before you go any further....
Approximate Meal Plan:
Chain grocery store (Publix): $155.00
Warehouse store (Costco or Sam's): $125.00
The amount you will spend will depend on your geographic location and how much you rely on bulk purchases. As an example, you can get 1 quart of extra light olive oil at Kroger for $19.99 or you can get 4 quarts at Costco for $16.50. You follow? Meat and produce will also be less at the warehouse stores, but might require you purchase more than you'll need for this plan.

Notes: Listen, I know eating chicken can get really boring. Try this classic chinese takeout recipe with a bit of a healthy remix to it!
Notes: Shrimp can get a little pricey very fast. Try substituting the shrimp with lean chicken breast. Go easy on that honey because it'll increase your Carbs by ALOT, don't go adding more honey because you want it sweeter ; ). Small Tip, I like throwing extra bell peppers I have left over from chili just to give it more color. If it fits your macros, put all that goodness on a bed of rice and you're good to go!
Notes: Another hearty option this week, this chili is loaded with wonderful flavor and vegetables. If Bison isn't your thing, substitute it with any type of ground meat. Sometimes I ground up my own chicken breast, but 90/10 or 80/20 beef for more is cool if you want more fat.
Notes: This is great for Breakfast and giving you fuel for your meal prep day. If you're counting macros, it is high in fat, so finding a turkey sausage or chicken sausage and applying your Chorizo spices works well too.
Notes: These have always looked delicious but, because Alyssa has never made them for me I'm not sure how they taste. Listen, before you go all "COOK IT YOURSELF GRIFF", we established that I'm not allowed to bake things...at all. It never works out for anyone. I know how to read the recipe, but for some reason it never comes out right.
Disclaimer: I purchased these recipes from Paleo Nick and figured I'd just share em. I am not in anyway or form reselling these recipes or claiming them as my own.
