My Personal Meal Plan

People ask me all the time what I eat.

Here is the typical meal plan that I follow throughout the week.

Note: What I don’t eat (more than 1x a week)



– Gluten (i try to limit it, I am not perfect)

– Sauces

I do allow myself one cheat meal per week. That means that I do eat dairy, but ONLY during that meal. I *may* or may not have ONE glass of wine with my cheat meal.

Hope’s Meal Plan:

(about 1400 to 1600 calories, more or less)


I workout 4 – 5 days a week on the average. I usually workout M – F. I do some sort of resistance AND cardio all of those days. I may do something fun and physical outdoors on the weekend. I usually get in 1 – 2 rest days a week.

(remember, while I am a HUGE advocate of fitness, you do NOT have to do what I do!)



Plain Oatmeal cooked – add one svg of  Whey Protein and one TBS of all natural Peanut Butter (add Pumpkin Pie Spice for a fun treat)


(about 2 hours later, within an hour of my workout preferably)

Protein Shake  with unsweetened almond milk and fruit blended


a protein and a complex carb

protein: 6 ounces of chicken, fish, eggs. Here is where you need to vary it up. Try different veggies, different fish, spices, etc.



1 or 2 cup of veggies and protein (Again, vary it up!) about 6 ounces
