Meal Plan, February 18th through 25th

Life has gotten a lot different for me lately in what I am able to eat.  Dairy has become a problem.  I can’t eat ice-cream :-(, drink milk, or eat an excess of any other type of dairy.  I can have a little yogurt (because it’s fermented), a little cheese (somehow I’m okay with a small slice of pizza or two) or butter cooked into things (though I am trying to use coconut oil), etc.  But it’s just very limited.  It increases my reflux symptoms, causes a really upset stomach, and lately has been causing digestive issues.  I’m super sad about this.  I am not the type to cut foods out (at least since I stopped dieting in 2016), but this is a matter of how it makes me feel so it’s part of intuitive eating.

This is what I’m eating for lunch as I type this.  It makes me feel good and is very nourishing.  Hummus and veggies, salami, a whole wheat banana muffin, and two boiled eggs with a little salt.  I may or may not eat all of this… I don’t typically eat very much.  And this may seem against everything you’ve been taught, but I actually focus the most of protein, carbs, and fat.  Those are what give me energy and keep me going.  For me, carbs aren’t “bad,” they are necessary to feel good.  Maybe it’s not that way for others, and that’s part of the process… learning what makes you feeling your best.


I typically just make a list of breakfasts and lunches (and snacks if needed, but I don’t eat a lot of snacks), then I plan dinners specifically for each night.


  • Homemade Greek yogurt and homemade granola
  • Green smoothie (made with collagen instead of whey protein powder)
  • Oatmeal and fruit
  • Eggs in tortillas and fruit
  • Omelet with veggies
  • Egg sandwich and fruit


  • Finger foods plate (deli meat, hummus and veggies, boiled eggs, and carb of some sort)
  • Sandwich, veggies and hummus, quinoa and flax chips
  • Tuna salad
  • Chicken salad


  • Homemade Greek yogurt and homemade granola
  • Graham crackers and peanut butter
  • Pretzels and chocolate hummus
  • Veggie straws
  • Apples and peanut butter
  • Almonds
  • White cheddar Cheez-its
  • Triscuits


  • Monday- Instant Pot tomato basil soup and grilled cheese
  • Tuesday- Tacos
  • Wednesday- Instant pot carnitas, IP pinto beans, Spanish rice, guacamole (we’re having friends over).
  • Thursday- Leftovers
  • Friday- Hot dogs
  • Saturday- Dining Hall
  • Sunday- Instant Pot venison roast (I’ll write this up eventually… so easy), Instant Pot mashed potatoes, and roasted brussel sprouts

I bought groceries for these meals last Friday (I buy for two weeks at a time), so we should have everything that we need.

Have a good start to your week!
