Meal Prepping.


I decided to make a weeks worth of meals to save myself some time in the kitchen. To make it simple I decided on two breakfast options, two lunch options, a variety of snacks, and two dinner options. My plan looks a little something like this.

Breakfast.

  • 1 cup of high fiber cereal with 1 cup of almond milk + 1/2 cup of fruit + 1 homemade turkey sausage patty.

OR

  • 1 egg 1/2 cup egg-white + veggies. 1 slice of ezekial 7 sprouted bread topped with 1 tbsp of nut butter.

Lunch.

  • Chicken Enchilada soup served with a side salad.

OR

  • Spinach/Greens salad topped with protein of choice + healthy fat+ veggies+ dressing of choice.

Snacks.

  • Greek Yogurt.
  • Hummus and Veggies.
  • Walnuts.
  • Hard boiled eggs.
  • Turkey slices.
  • Fruit.

Dinners.

  • Grilled salmon, small sweet potato, and 1/2 cup of veggies.

OR

  • 3 bean turkey chili topped with cheddar cheese, cilantro, and chobani greek yogurt for sour cream.

I used two recipes from Skinnytaste.  The 3 bean chili + the chicken enchilada soup. Recipes below.
