This printable low carb meal planning worksheet is a free tool to help you plan your meals for the week and to stay on track with your low carb or keto lifestyle.
I follow a lot of low carb group boards on Facebook (and I’m starting my own, you should join!) and one thing I read daily is people saying that they get off track of their low carb or keto eating at the end of the day. Or I read that they are tired of eating the same old thing. I find that I stay on track of my carbs and macros amazingly up until around 4 pm, when the kiddos get home, and I might steal a bite of their not-so-low-carb-snack. Yikes!
Banning everyone else’s snacks from the house isn’t an option, so I found it best if I’m prepared. You know, make a plan and stick to it. I created a low carb meal planning worksheet that I can fill out and use as my guide for the week. I can fill in what each meal is, and keep a rough idea of how many carbs I’m at for the day. Plus, it helps me on Sunday, when I’m doing my food prep for the week.
A quick google search of low carb meal planners showed ones that were already filled out for me. Um, no. I want to pick out my own food!
Breakfast is easy because I always have eggs. Always. It’s the dinner and the snacks that get me. But this way I know what to eat and I’m more apt to stick with it since I wrote it down. It’s all in my head.
