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

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.

Meal Prep and Meal Plan for week of February 16

Prep-once-eat-healthy-all-week

Hey everyone,  Food prep went down today in my kitchen and I am SO glad to have it done.  Prepping really is tough work and it takes a while to get it down pat, but once you do it is a life saver and really makes life so much easier.   Today I prepped for the upcoming week.  For those who have been following, you know that I am about to change my diet starting tomorrow, so all of the food prepped is part of my new food plan. Today I fixed

  • extra lean ground turkey with taco seasoning and stir fry pepper blend
  • baked chicken breasts easoned with Mrs. Dash Original Blend
  • eggs with salsa
  • steamed broccoli
  • steamed rice

I also portioned out oatmeal for the week.  I divided meat and eggs into individual servings.  The veggies will be added to it the night before. I stick 2 days worth of meat in the freezer and I will take them out on Wednesday to ensure that they are ready to eat on Thursday

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.  Speaking of easy, I also use a rice cooker like this one to prepare my rice. It really takes all of the guess work out of boiling rice since it automatically cuts off when the rice is cooked.

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.

Meal 1- Protein shake, a tbsp of peanut butter

Meal 2- Eggs with salsa, and oatmeal with blueberries

Meal 3, Meal 4 and Meal 5- one of my prepared meats with veggies

Meal 6- tuna with cottage cheese and celery, greek yogurt with PB2 or eggs

Post workout- rice and a shake

I get meal 1 ready to go in a shaker bottle the night before and I decide on meal 6 when I get home in the evening.
