Food Prep and Meal Plan for the week of April 13

Prep-once-eat-healthy-all-week

Hey everyone,  It is with a bit of stress that I write this.  This week I am really changing up my meal plan to be in accordance with the recommended 21 Day Fix.   As a creature of habit I really struggle with changing my meal plan.  Not only that as a person who has lost a considerable amount of weight, I am so afraid that changing things may reverse my progress. None the less I am stepping out on a ledge and hoping to give it a try.  So here is what I prepped today

  • ground chicken burgers on the grill
  • oatmeal, egg bake (ingredients included oatmeal, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon, and cottage cheese)
  • grilled asparagus
  • steamed broccoli

Here is my meal plan

Meal 1- Shakeology with a banana, oatmeal with peanut butter

Meal 2 Oatmeal, egg bake.  I had planned on sharing the recipe but it still needs some tweaking.  As soon as I get it to where I want it I will share a recipe

Meal 3- Ground Chicken patty and asparagus or broccoli

Meal 4- Sunflower seeds and 2 tangerines

Meal 5- Ground chicken patty with cheese, and asparagus

Meal 6- Oatmeal with Peanut butter

Food prep and meal plan for week of April 6th

Prep-once-eat-healthy-all-week

Hey Everyone!!! This week I will be starting the 21 Day Fix.  While I will be loosely following the plan provided by the program this first week, what I will be eating this week is more like the 3 day jump start menu that is provided.  It is going to be a busy week, so I had to step up my food prep organization game.

Today I am prepping

  • grilled chicken
  • eggs with salsa
  • Baked asparagus
  • Extra lean ground turkey prepared as patties

In order to make meal prep as painless as possible I try to have all of my meats cooking at once.  This saves time.  I also fix my eggs in batches and divide it to save time.

I usually eat 6 meals a day and I prep for 4 of those meals.  This week here is a general snapshot of what I will be eating.  Keep in mind, this is set for my body to help reach my goals.

I am now doing a Hip Hop Abs challenge group in addition to the 21Day Fix and my meal plan is based on what I need to be successful with this challenge group.

Here is what I will be eating:

Meal 1- (after fasted cardio) Shakeology with 1/2 a banana, and 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Meal 2- Eggs with salsa and oatmeal

Meal 3, Meal 4, and 5 One  of my prepared meats with baked asparagus

Meal 6- Eggs, or greek yogurt with pbs, or a low carb protein pancake (for recipe click HERE)

Post workout- shake

Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions you may have in the comments below.  Meal prep can be confusing at first, but I promise keep at it and you will get the hang of it. You will also really appreciate all of the time it saves you.
