+ IS THIS SEASON'S MEAL PLAN DIFFERENT FROM LAST SEASON'S MEAL PLAN?
Yes! Each season's meal plan is 100% different and unique compared to the previous (or next) season.
+ WHAT TYPES OF INGREDIENTS / FOODS ARE INCLUDED IN THE CSE MEAL PLAN?
The meal plan follows the "clean eating" guidelines. Fruits & veggies, lean meats, eggs, fish, whole grains, dairy, nuts and seeds plus some "treat" items.
We have balanced the macronutrients in each meal to reach a 40% carbohydrate, 30% fat & 30% protein split. All macronutrient totals are included with each recipe as well as pre-loaded to My Fitness Pal app for those of you tracking your macros. The recipes are delicious and very practical, you will find yourself going back to them again and again even after the challenge is over.
+ WHERE DO YOU PURCHASE YOUR GROCERIES?
We purchase our groceries from bulk stores from Costco, regular grocery stores like Harmon's & Sprouts. If you have questions about a specific item, post in the Clean Simple Eats Challenge Facebook Group. We have also created a guide HERE so you can shop the "hard to find" ingredients.
+ CAN I TRACK MACROS WITH YOUR MEAL PLAN?
Yes! All of the macronutrient information has been added to the My Fitness Pal app (search your phone's app store to download the app) for each recipe. Search "Clean Simple Eats" and the recipe name and simply add it to your dairy in My Fitness Pal. You may need to alter your last snack of the day to meet your custom macros given to you by your coach.
+ HOW MANY SERVINGS DOES EACH OF THE RECIPES MAKE?
MOST of the recipes in the meal plan make 4 servings (with the exception of some breakfasts and some snacks). If you are cooking for a family like I am, double each shopping list and recipe to make 8 servings. If you are single and cooking for one, half each recipe to make 2 servings, or you can eat the same entree 4 lunches & dinner in a row.
+ HOW MUCH DO WEEKLY GROCERIES COST?
This will differ from person to person depending on which ingredients you already have on hand, how many you are shopping for, where you shop and if you shop organic. Unfortunately, we cannot put a set number on the weekly grocery budget. Like mentioned above, items are found at regular grocery stores such as Costco, Harmon's & Sprouts. If you live near an Aldi, most groceries are avaialble there as well.
+ IS THIS MEAL PLAN RIGHT FOR ME / CAN I ALSO DO THIS WITH MY HUSBAND?
This meal plan covers everyone! Inside the front of each plan (and in the app) you'll see there are calorie options ranging from 1500-3000 and a calculator to help you know where you should be! The layout on this plan helps anyone on any level achieve their goals. You can also check out our app HERE CleanSimpleEats.com/app for more details on how to calculate how many calories you should be eating.
+ HOW CAN I SEE WHAT MEALS ARE INCLUDED?
When you click on the meal plan, you'll see an index of all recipes included.
+ CAN I BUY THE PHYSICAL COPY WITHOUT THE DIGITAL?
No. Right now they are only available together. We give you a digital copy with your physical purchase as a bonus.
