BTD Meal Plans Lifestyle

Say Hello to The BTD 6-Week Meal Plan!

If I had a nickel for every time I said “omg I need to get my life together,” I’d be well on my way to retirement. Like, I think that comes out of my mouth at least once a week. Because on any given day, there’s at least something that needs special attention – whether it be my overflowing laundry basket, the current state of my car (#disaster), or how many glasses of wine I had the night before (ha!).

The Struggle is Real

Of all the things I need to “get together” in my life, I think what makes me feel the most illegitimate is the number of times I find myself sitting on the couch after  a long day at work eating hummus and pita chips with Chardonnay for dinner – and being totally okay with the fact that I also had that for lunch (minus the wine though! ha) and dinner the night before. And if it’s not hummus, it’s frozen pizza, Nut-Thins (current fave), or pasta with red sauce.

Struggle No. 1: I know nothing about food

The truth is, I’m clueless when it comes to food – in every possible way one could be. Like, not only do I not know what’s healthy and what’s not, but I don’t even know where to start in figuring it all out. It’s just not my thing and never has been. But the older I get, the more I want to learn and be aware of what I’m putting into my body and at least try to eat better. And by “better,” I mean well-balanced and nutritious; I’m not talking about some crazy no-carb initiative or anything (gosh, that would be awful!) I’m thinking more along the lines of this: less random meals, more nutrition, smarter grocery shopping and less Uber Eats charges on my credit card.

Struggle No. 2: I hate the grocery store

My ignorance of all things food is only compounded by the fact that I have little to zero experience when it comes to cooking or preparing meals. I don’t know how I missed this “part” of growing up, but for some reason I never got into cooking – not even a little bit. I eat out almost every single meal and only know how to make like 7 things in the kitchen – and that’s including cereal.

So given all this, it only makes sense that the grocery store is a terrible, scary place for me. Honestly, when I think about venturing to grocery store land, I get nervous and am overwhelmed with dread. I know, I’m being dramatic. But really, I HATE going so much that I’ll do anything to avoid it. It’s actually quite comical. To give you an idea, consider this (typical) situation that is my grocery store experience: struggle to find parking spot, grab cart with broken wheel, stroll around somewhat aimlessly (without list), get overwhelmed, become antsy, settle with some yogurt, wine, Nilla Wafers, and Eggo’s.

Addressing the Struggle

I’ve had too many nights on my couch with the pits chips and hummus situation. I HAVE to do something about this. There’s got to be something I can do to improve my sub-par, nutrition-less situation that I continue to settle for. Honestly, I’m not even trying. I can do better. As such, I’ve decided to do something about it. And like most things I decide to do, I’m going all out. Go big or go home, right?!

As I’ve mentioned, the thought of meal planning and all this “ish” totally overwhelms me – so not my area of expertise. So I decided it was time to get some help. Otherwise, I wouldn’t be able to make a REAL change – one that I’d actually stick to. And since I’m doing this for myself, I figured it would be worthwhile to document and blog about it in case any of y’all are in the same boat. And from the response I got from my recent “Instagram story” confessions, it looks like plenty of y’all are on the struggle bus as well. Welcome.

Solution: I’m asking for help

What to do when you don’t know what to do? Call in a lifeline. I’m all about asking for help when I know I need it. Good news (for me AND you) is that it just so happens I have a friend who is a food genius! My friend Taylor Fisher is a registered dietitian and has been working in wellness for over 7 years. In other words, she knows all the things about food – how to cook, what’s good for you, when and why to eat what, and all those types of things I wish I knew.

I went to her with my (candid as they may be) concerns/questions such as:

  • I need to go the grocery store, but I don’t know what to get. OMG. Help me, please?
  • How do you shop for more than one meal without wasting ingredients?
  • Can you tell me about meal-planning in a way that’s not going to overwhelm me?
  • What’re some examples of meals I can make quickly and then have leftovers for lunch etc.?

Announcement: The BTD 6-Week Meal Plan (Beta-ish)

After much thought and brainstorming, we decided to launch a mini meal plan for 6 weeks on BTD to see how y’all responded. So I’m using the next 6 weeks to test this out and if y’all seem to like it, I’ll start doing this more often and providing similar food-related content for y’all!

Each Friday for the next 6 weeks, I’ll be sharing a grocery shopping list plus 5-7 recipes that you can make with the groceries on that list. Taylor and I worked together to make sure that you’d be able to shop confidently and waste as little time and food as possible.

Who is this Meal Plan for?

Since this all started as a personal problem, the solution is catered to someone like me – single (aka cooking for 1) and super busy and not too-too concerned about all the healthy stuff. I just wanted to eat healthier than I already am. We decided to start VERY simple and make this as pain and hassle free as possible.

Even though the recipes and grocery list are catered to 1 serving, you can easily modify your list to cook or prep for more than one person or to make additional servings for lunch, etc. And this grocery list is not going to necessarily cover EVERY single meal you’ll eat over those 7 days either. Because realistically, do you think you could eat every single dinner from home and have your s*it together enough to pack a lunch every single day? I know that’s impossible for me. So we assumed you’d be eating out a few meals a week and/or have plans that might overlap with some of your meals.

Pantry Staples To Stock Up On (Before We Start)

Before getting into the first grocery list and recipes on Friday, I wanted to list out a few pantry staples that you might want to consider adding to your arsenal before we get started. There are a number of ingredients that really I think should always be in anyone’s kitchen. You may see these in numerous recipes & grocery lists over the next several weeks.  But if you already have them in your fridge or pantry, you can already cross them off your list!

  • Olive oil (best for salad dressing and finishing dishes)
  • Canola oil  (best for cooking because it has a higher smoke point – i.e. it can withstand greater heat before losing some of it’s nutrition.
  • Dijon mustard (great for sandwiches, salad dressings, sauces, and more)
  • Salt & pepper
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Champagne or White Balsamic Vinegar
  • Pesto
  • White Onion
  • Dried spices such as: basil, rosemary, thyme, cumin, chili powder, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice (in the fall & winter months), Italian Seasoning, etc.
  • Low-sodium chicken broth (or low-sodium vegetable broth, if vegetarian)
  • Honey (for tea, oatmeal, salad dressing, the base of chicken salads, & more!)
  • Can of beans (black beans / garbanzo beans / white beans / etc.)
  • Dry rolled oats – great to get from the bulk bin of grocery stores like Central Market. Use for quick oatmeal in the morning, add to pancake mixes, make homemade granola or homemade granola bars.
  • Whole-wheat pasta or rice
  • Jar of minced garlic – if you don’t want to always have to buy new cloves.

OMG OKAY, WHAT DO Y’ALL THINK!?!

GAHH!! So that’s the announcement! I’m MORE than excited not only for myself (ha!) but also to share this as a free resource for y’all! Please tell me you’re as excited as I am?! Come back to the blog on Friday to see the first batch of recipes and grocery list!

WHO IS DOING IT WITH ME?

Please comment below and so I know if you’re joining the party!!

Outfit DetailsRuffle Hem Sweater (OBSESSED, XS, $49) // Joe Fresh Slim Fit Jean ($40, high-waisted, size down) // Adidas Sneakers (size down 1 entire size) // Moon & Lola Earrings (on sale!)

Kitchen Details –  You guys, it’s SO not done – like, I don’t even have bar stools and my faucet is getting switched out today too. I’m going to do a full reveal (I think) eventually once things are more settled, but since I already know some of y’all are going to ask I’ll go ahead and give you sourcing for what you see. The lights are Regina Andrew (love at first sight!), the counter tops are Quartz and the back-splash is Calcutta marble. The hardware is temporary – I didn’t pick it out and I’m changing it next week so I don’t even know what it is. More updates to come!

    I also hate going to the grocery store. You should try Kroger Checklist (I think HEB has something similar). You can order groceries online, swing by the store during your scheduled pick-up time, and they deliver your groceries to your car. Plus, if you’re trying to eat healthy, it helps you not buy stuff you don’t need!

    I also did not know anything about cooking for so long. It wasn’t until I was married, became intolerant to certain foods, and chronic inflammatory issues started to rear their ugly head, that I became familiar with the kitchen. I highly suggest looking into the Bulletproof Diet (have you heard of bulletproof coffee?) It is a modified version of the paleo diet. I also would never suggest getting canola oil.

    Canola (modified rapeseed oil) is produced by heating the rapeseed and processing with a petroleum solvent to extract the oil. Then another process of heat and addition of acid is used to remove nasty solids (wax) that occur during the first processing.

    At this point, the newly created canola oil must be treated with more chemicals to improve color and separate the different parts of the oil. Finally, since the chemical process has created a harsh smelling oil, it must be chemically deodorized to be palatable.

    After raising two kids and trying to plan family meals where we could all eat together was challenging! I tried to have dinner together, each night, while planning around working, sports, cheerleading, and church. I think, I finally got it down pretty well, and later The Food Channel did really inspire me. But, you can never go wrong with a basic spaghetti sauce… you can later add it to stews, soups, chili, chicken parm…so many things. Hmmm…I may have to write a post about that! ;)

    I am excited for this! I live with my boyfriend so our main struggle is coming up with recipes we both enjoy because I am pretty picky. I’m always looking for something new to make and I’m glad I have another place to look at for recipes! Luckily, he loves to cook and I learned how to from my mom. She’s a personal trainer so our meals were always super healthy and balanced. There was one time in college I went to this place that was like a convenient store inside the dorm. I called my mom and told her there was only junk and I couldn’t buy anything to eat. She was so proud ha! On the other hand, since she spent all her time at the gym in workout clothes I missed the “part” of growing up of learning how to do make up and hair and dress up which is obviously why you are my favorite blogger because you are so great at all things girly!

    Love it! A couple years ago I started researching a healthier way of eating and let me tell ya — it’s a never ending journey. I really enjoy learning more about it everyday. The struggle is real when cooking for one as well so I’m excited to see what your friend comes up with! PS, Canola oil is high in GMO’s (about 93% of what you see on the market) but check out Avocado oil as it can get to high heat as well. I literally learned this YESTERDAY thanks to ShutTheKaleUp on Instagram!

      I was going to make a comment about Canola oil as well! Not only is it chock full of GMOs, it’s generally not a healthy choice. As a MUFA, it’s not stable enough to resist heat damage (and thus oxidation–not good!). Plus, it distorts your Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratio. Most Americans already get too much Omega 6 and not enough Omega 3. Avocado oil and coconut oil are both great alternatives for high heat cooking!

    I love this!!! Getting into food and a more healthy lifestyle is a serious struggle, I’ve been there! I also cook for just me so it took me a while to understand portions and having to plan meals/shopping lists/etc so I was being effective and not wasting money/food. It certainly took me a while (and I still struggle at times) but now I’m in LOVE with all things food/cooking. I am noticing that I do make nearly the same thing every single week (yes, I insta-stalked myself and my sweet potato/oats/pancake obsession haha @eatbreathegetfit) so I’m excited to see the meal ideas you have!! Is it Friday yet?! Also – congrats on the new house!!!

    So excited for this! I’m a newer follower (don’t even honestly remember how I found your blog, probably Instagram) and this is one of my goals for the year. I have such a hard time cooking for one… and finding stuff I actually enjoy eating (and eating leftover, because I hate leftovers). Also I’ve really enjoyed your recent posts, from your faith to your new house. Keep keeping it real! :)

    Love this idea! I can’t commit to following religiously, but I’m definitely going to be checking in for meal inspiration. I go through weeks at a time where I’m really great about planning meals, then there will be a week or two where I eat mostly cereal. Oops! Loving your kitchen so far! So bright! Those lights are amazing- I’m super loving brass fixtures right now too. And your counter tops and backslash are gorgeous, girl. Looking forward to the reveal.

    So excited for this! I’m in college and while I like to cook, I’m always throwing away food and ingredients.
