Weekly Plan: October 6th

I started creating these Excel sheets during my undergrad at Binghamton. I didn’t have a car so I was limited to grocery shopping once a week. This meant that I had to get it right: not buy too much or too little. This organization not only helped with my wallet, but also my waistline. Knowing what was on the menu for my next meal or snack was comforting and left me more time and energy to focus on other things.

So anyway! I’m back at it. Here’s my plan for this upcoming week. I’ve included a few recipes and a lifting regimen. The blocked out areas in my schedule are when I work. Enjoy!

Image

Ingredients

3 cups greens (spinach, kale, watercress etc)
1/2 seedless cucumber
1 cup frozen pineapple
1/2 cup frozen mango
1 scoop vanilla whey (About Time is the cleanest, but can leave a bitter aftertaste)
1″ knob of ginger, peeled
Water

Directions

Place washed greens into high speed blender with 1/2 cup water. Blend until all green bits are broken down into a smooth liquid. Add cucumber, pineapple, mango and whey. Pour more water as needed. Grate ginger and discard big, stringy bits. Add grated pieces to smoothie, blend and enjoy!

Tip: peel ginger and freeze for easy, clean grating for another smoothie or stir fry!
