His & Hers Weekly Meal Plan No.1

Since Ben moved to Brisbane, the amount of food in the house has more than tripled.

Recently due to ease of shopping and preparation, I have been following his prep diet and eating whatever he eats, just adjusting the amounts to maintenance calories/ macros (due to pregnancy, I can't be losing or gaining any dramatic weight on purpose).




Below is our shop we did yesterday at Coles for the next 4-5 days. We've been on this meal plan for almost a month now and to be honest, I'm still not tired of it. I try to mix up my snacks and sides a little but the mains stay the same and they seem to give me everything I need (still no pregnancy cravings which I am putting down to giving my body everything it already needs hence no cravings - although I haven't hit the third trimester yet which is apparently the worst for cravings).



Below I will outline both Ben's and my current meal plans (keep in mind Ben is currently on lean bulking calories/ macros and as mentioned, I am on maintenance - If you need help adjusting to your goals - please contact me through the Talk Healthy To Me Facebook group here).

HIS:

Meal 1: Omlette

3 x whole eggs
4 x egg whites
20g onion
20g whole fat cheese
250ml fresh juice (budget requires us to buy the freshest we can find in the supermarket - no preservatives, just full of fruit - we love the BERRI brand)

Meal 2: Burgers with Salad

 

2 x 100g turkey burger patties (recipe to come)
2 x white bread
50g spinach
20g capsicum

Once or twice a week I will indulge a little and have chocolate or another treat I feel like just because my goals aren't super strict at the moment.

Our meals are timed and portioned to give maximum energy output for our evening workout.We like to work out in the evenings, even on weekends as we have the maximum amount of fuel in our bodies needed to perform our best.

As mentioned, if you need help working out your calories and macros, don't hesitate to contact me via the Facebook group link above.

Let me know if you want me to keep these posts regular as our meal plans change from time to time and we would love to share them with you all.

Keep smiling!

  1. Loved reading this! Thanks so much for sharing. I would like to know you you time the meals roughly, it would be good to see when you have meal 1, meal 2 during the day just to get an idea. I'd also love the recipe for the turkey patties and the healthy rice!!! I am obsessed with rice, so I would like to know how to make it more healthy! x
