Food prep and meal plan for the week of March 23

Prep-once-eat-healthy-all-week

Hey Everyone!!! This week my meal prep is going to be a bit different. I will only work 2 days this week so I will only be preparing some things for 2 days.  Nonetheless, I will be preparing meat for the whole week.

Today I am prepping

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.  When it comes to steaming my veggies I always  have microwave steam bags like these on hand because they make steaming veggies SO easy.

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 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 a tbsp of peanut butter, and 1 cup of unsweetened vanilla almond milk

Meal 2- Eggs with salsa

Meal 3, Meal 4 – one of my prepared meats with veggies

Meal 5- High Protein. peanut butter apple parfait (Click HERE for recipe)

Meal 6- Low Carb Brownie with 1 tbsp of Peanut butter (Click HERE for recipe)

Post workout- shake

Food Prep and meal plan for the week of February 23

Prep-once-eat-healthy-all-week

Hey Everyone!! I won’t lie, I am so excited about writing this.  As some of you may know, I am a teacher.  Last week we were hit with a terrible storm and were out of school for the whole week.  This was really the worst thing that could happen to me.  I am such a creature of habit and I really need routine and structure.  While I still got in my workouts, I fell off track with my food.  This week I am completely changing things up with my meal plan.  The plan you will find below will be what I will be eating most days,  every 3 to 4 days I will be dropping some of the fat and adding in carbs (which will mainly be oatmeal).  I am always excited to start a new plan. It really kind of revamps my energy, so I am sure this will be an exciting week.  So without further adieu,  here is what I prepped this week.
