Making a meal plan for a healthy protein diet can seem like a daunting task. It doesn’t have to be. Keep It Simple by sticking to healthy, fresh foods and whole grains you can make a protein meal plan that meets your macros!
I am a creature of routine and therefore I simply stick to a few basic meals that I like to eat, are easy to make, and easy to buy.
So I decided to share with you a sample protein meal plan from my kitchen using natural foods.
For purposes of trying to gain an accurate estimate of nutrients this meal plan was completed on MyFitnessPal and isn’t 100% accurate since I used information from their database. Note that I did not include all cooking ingredients, like oils. Personally I use a few simple spices and olive oil.
Notice that I do eat out twice per week. I am not going to fool you, so sample eating out meals are included!
