Are You Ready to RESET?! {#sugarletsreset} Meal Plan + Prep Guide

Is it just me or is anyone else like SERIOUSLY pumped for a week of no sugar?!?!

Ok…maybe “pumped” is a little overzealous. 🙂 But I am pretty excited for what’s about to go down.

Women coming together. Believing in each other and themselves. Removing excess amounts of sugar. Learning how to take that forward after the week is up and selfishly allowing themselves to invest in THEM. It’s a beautiful thing and I’m always so excited to have a new group of ladies add into our already amazing community.

Anyways, enough babbling. Let’s get down to business! This next week will be a WHOLE lot easier if you PREPARE for it.

DO NOT TRY TO PARTICIPATE WITHOUT A PLAN.

Did you hear me on that?! I will be back and forth this weekend in the group page on Facebook helping to set you up for success, but the truth is, I can’t go to everyone’s house and do it for them. I wish I could…but I can’t. So you have to set some time aside this weekend to read this blog, figure out your food for the week, plan around any challenges, and get to the grocery store/prep.

Why, Brittany?! You may ask…

BECAUSE YOU’RE WORTH IT.

Alright…let’s get to it!

Why do you want to do this Challenge?

For me, it’s all about finding balance in the way I’m eating. I believe in the 80/20 principle, which is that I eat clean 80% of the time and indulge 20%. I’m ready to cleanse out my body of junk this next week and find a better balance as we get closer to bikini season! These groups offer me an amazing way to feel supported along my journey. I’m ready to get READY for summer! Anyone else feel like that?! Figure out WHY you want to do this challenge so that on the days when it’s tough {and it will be} you have that WHY to fall back on!

How are you going to stay MOTIVATED this week?

It’s always a nice thought to dive into something like this. And often times we “know” we need to be healthier…but actually DOING it and staying motivated throughout the week are a different story. For me, I think the SUPPORT COMMUNITY we have on Facebook is where it’s at. I use that to log my workouts, log my nutrition, and help keep me on track. It’s kinda like my own gym. If I don’t show up to the group, I’m not showing up to the gym. I also like to think of a small reward (not food) that I can give to myself at the end of the challenge. Something that says “great job, Britt!” “keep it up!” This could be a new book. A warm bath. A new bottle of wine. A new workout tank. New headbands. The sky is the limit! But these small little prizes help me to push towards my ultimate goal! What will motivate YOU to push this week?!

What is your ultimate GOAL?

My ultimate goal is to inspire others and show them that if I can do it, so CAN THEY!!! That’s why I push myself in these groups and that’s why I host them month after month. What’s your goal? Maybe you want to completely remove sugar this week. Maybe your goal is to wake up everyday and make time for breakfast. Maybe the goal is to stick to the meal plan and cut out late night snacking. Whatever the goal is for you, write it down! Share it in the group! Make it the background of your phone! Whatever you do, be sure to set a small goal for yourself this week so that you know what you’re working towards.

Ya’ll. I don’t believe in eating boring and bland food. I ALSO don’t believe in making things COMPLICATED! Below you will find links to all of the recipes for the week and some tips for how to create a meal plan and grocery list out of it. This is a habit I’ve created in my life and I like to teach others how to do it as well. Grab your journals and let’s get planning!!!

Breakfast Ideas-

Mini Denver Quiche, Avocado Egg Salad Toast, Glowing Green Smoothie Bowl

{pro tip: I recommend making the quiche on Sunday for those mornings you need to grab and GO!}

Lunch Ideas-

Greek Salad Pita Pizza, Spring Cobb Salad in a Mason Jar

{pro tip: Make the mason jar salads ahead of time (you can even make the greek salad into one!)}

Dinner Ideas-

Zucchini Noodles with Avocado Pesto, Crock Pot Chicken Tacos, Sloppy Joe Bowls, Marinated Summer Veggies + Chicken Sausage, Jalapeno Turkey Burgers w/ Sweet Potato Fries

{pro tip: if you are a veggie/vegan friend, swap out the meat for other sources of protein like soy crumbles, tofu, beans, veggie burgers, etc}

Snack Ideas-

Lara Bars (none with chocolate 😉 ), Carrots/Cucumbers + Hummus, Hard Boiled Eggs, Cake Batter Energy Balls, Homemade Popcorn, Cheese Sticks, Almonds/Nuts, and Fruit

Drink Ideas-

Kombucha (you can find it in the produce juice section) or Sparkling Water (I love La Croix)

  1. Set aside 30 minutes to plan out your week. Grab a journal or notepad + your calendar + this website.

  2. What days are you busy this week?! Mix and Match the recipes to fit YOUR schedule.

  3. Write down each day of the week and label B, L, + D with each OR if you want a printable MEAL PLANNER, you can snag a SUPER CUTE ONE HERE.

  4. Fill in what you will be eating each day. Keep in mind that I enjoy eating last night’s dinner leftovers as my lunch. It makes life easier!!!

  5. Look at each recipe and create a grocery list based on the ingredients you do not already have on hand/the serving sizes you will need to accommodate your family.

  6. Don’t be afraid to halve or double recipes. Often times I will half a recipe if I feel like it would yield too much and essentially be wasteful! The idea is to use and eat everything you buy!

  7. Shop only for what is on the list! Don’t start adding junk into the cart! 🙂 If it’s in the house, you WILL eat it. Remove temptation by not adding it to the cart.

  8. Don’t forget snacks! Nobody needs you getting all hangry next week.

  9. Get to the store!!!

  10. Come home and prep the foods you know you won’t have time for later in the week (i.e. make your breakfast quiche or mason jar salads in advance so you can grab and go out the door).

Ya’ll.

I’m seriously SO excited to dive into another RESET with YOU!!! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to comment below on this post or bring them to the private group on Facebook! I can’t wait to dive in!!!
