Fit in 15Week 8 Nutrition Goals
Your goals for Week 8:
1. Keep doing AWESOME on grocery shopping and cooking from truck! Continue working on cooking at least 1 meal/day in truck and getting your grocery shopping in. Use the recipe videos, snack list, and sample menu and grocery list
Keep in mind that many of the ingredients you have bought in previous weeks will rollover to use in the next week's menu
2. Aim to make non-starchy veggies the largest portion of your plate for 2 meals or 1 meal & 1 snack.
