CNC Meal Plan: Week of March 25

Mastermind Weekend 1/16

Hey there!

I'm Tina

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.

Happy Sunday, friends!

I got my act together bright and early yesterday morning. I meal planned and went grocery shopping all before 10:00 AM. Booyah. It was nice to get it out of the way early in the weekend. (FYI: I blogged about what I bought over on Trading Up Downtown.)


Here’s this week’s meal plan and shopping list!

Sunday: Mexican Turkey Burgers and Mashed Potatoes with Brown Butter and Sage

Monday: Chicken with Mushrooms and Green Beans

Tuesday: Soba Noodles with Chicken in Peanut Sauce

Wednesday: Bagel pizzas with roasted Brussels sprouts

Thursday: Black Bean Quesadillas and roasted broccoli

Friday: No meal planned – out to dinner with friends

Saturday: No meal planned – out to dinner with friends

Shopping list:*

  • Almond milk
  • Chicken breasts
  • Mushrooms
  • Green beans
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Asparagus
  • Sweet potatoes
  • White wine
  • Chips
  • Cabbage
  • Hemp milk
  • Broccoli

  • Carrots
  • Butterscotch chips
  • Ground turkey
  • Greek yogurt

  • Shredded cheese

*My shopping list doesn’t include all of the ingredients necessary to make the above meals. It’s just what we needed and includes items for other meals and snacks (not just dinners).



  1. Hi Tina,
    I was just wondering why you buy gluten-free bread as opposed to the regular kind?


    1. I went to a NRT doctor last week, who thought I might have a gluten sensitivity, so I’m trying to remove it from my diet. I’m also thinking about trying the Carbohydrate Specific Diet to help with my colitis symptoms.

  2. Isn’t it so great to get all that out of the way first thing in the morning? I love meal planning, but I loathe going to the grocery store (especially on Sundays when it is super crowded), so I always end up procrastinating which obviously just makes it worse! Good for you! 🙂

  3. I love getting my week of meals planned at the beginning of the week too! But no matter how hard I try to do only one grocery shopping trip, it inevitably turns into two or three throughout the week!

  4. I had a productive Sunday too – they are my favorite! I’m jealous of your Friday and Saturday meals out… especially the “with friends” part. Do you meet couples at this point in your life? Something has changed in my thirties and it’s super hard to meet new people. Thank goodness for Meatball and Graham 🙂 (My pug and boyfriend – Graham is the boyfriend, HA!)

  5. Meal planning is a lifesaver in our house! It’s such a good way to plan ahead, save money and also conjure up tasty dishes together 🙂

    Then my boyfriend and I ride our rickety bicycles to the grocery store (we live in Amsterdam) and pick up everything in one swoop. This weekend it was sunny out which was a big plus!! But regardless I actually love this Sunday chore…

  7. Now that my kitchen is back (and BEAUTIFUL!) I am ready to be back to cooking. I cannot wait to grocery shop today! (I don’t think I have EVER said that before!)
