CNC Meal Plan: Week of May 13

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.

Good morning! Happy Sunday!

It’s another crazy week with lots of travel for me, but I still got my meal plan on. I’ll be home a couple of nights this week and Mal needs to eat, so I figured I might as well get things organized and save as much money as possible on food this week. Otherwise, we end up buying takeout or going out to dinner, which, of course, is expensive and sometimes not very healthy.


Here’s this week’s menu:

Shopping list:

  • Sweet potatoes
  • Soy milk
  • Bananas
  • Almond milk
  • Almond butter
  • Peanut butter
  • Chicken
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Eggs
  • Deli ham
  • Swiss cheese
  • Bread
  • Frozen waffles
  • Greek yogurt
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Cucumber
  • Grainy mustard
  • Chips
  • Trail mix
You can see exactly what I purchased at the grocery store over on Trading Up Downtown. I deviated a little bit from my original shopping list.

*My shopping list doesn’t include all of the ingredients necessary to make the above meals. For a complete list, please see the individual recipes linked above.



  1. I do this for our family every week as well:) On our menu this time: Chicken taco soup, shrimp bisque, bbq pulled pork, lots o’ side salads, balsamic sweet potatoes, and some really lovely crusty bread for dipping in our soups! Cheers to you though for keeping it up during a trip heavy week, we’re coming up on a big trip~ so we’re pinching pennies by eating yummy goodness at home:)

  2. oh my goodness, i LOVE monte cristo sandwiches! and they are typically incredibly unhealthy. the recipe you suggested looks incredible though, and cheap, and pretty healthy! i’m adding it to my menu too. thanks 🙂

  3. how much do you budget for going out and groceries per week?? my husband and i just put ourselves on a budget and its so hard! a couple weeks we have come under, and this week we went a little over.. but its a fun challenge!!

  4. I have a touch time keeping our weekly shopping bill under $100. I enjoy buying humanely raised meats, plus organic milk for my husband and mostly organic veggies (at least those on the dirty dozen list). We marinated and cooked boneless chicken thighs on the grill Saturday and they came out really great. I like to put turkey thighs in the crockpot, they do fine in there for 10hrs. Those options cost a bit less than premium breast meat, so saving on those helps!

  6. If I make a meal plan for the week, I usually end up being really good and eating healthy. But it’s when I don’t I find myself snacking on tons of different things and losing track what I have eaten.
    Also, it saves me a lot of money too, just finding the time to do it is the problem, though I always take time for cooking.
    When I do online shopping it is really easy for me to keep track on how much I spend, I usually come out with exactly what I want and need, when I go myself then I end up buying so much more, I am an impulsive spender. 🙁
