A big part of living a healthy lifestyle is meal prepping! I love to meal prep because it saves time throughout the week and it is so convenient. I made Sundays my meal prep day so that I could start the week with a healthy mindset.
Meal prepping simply means cooking your meals in advance. I cook either for the whole week or for 3 days at a time.
Tip: So that you will not get overwhelmed, cook simple meals with less ingredients. Also try using some of the same ingredients for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You will save a lot of money that way!
Ok, lets get into what I made for the week! (Sept 7th)
For breakfast I just boiled 2 eggs every night before the next day. The day of, I add a tiny bit of salt, pepper, and sriracha sauce.(P.S I put sriracha sauce on everything lol) I can usually get full until lunch if I eat that with a cup of coffee or water.
This post is going to really focus on my lunch. I tried to think of something that only contained a small amount of ingredients. I didn’t use any measurements because it depends on how many days you are food prepping for. I personally had to prep for my sister and for about 3 days.
- any fish of your choice (my manager loves to fish and gave me some fresh crappie so that is what I used)
- Roma tomatoes
- feta cheese
- 1 clove of garlic
Before I did anything, I chopped up a large onion, minced 1 clove of garlic, and halved a good amount of tomatoes.
For Dinner, I baked some chicken, mixed veggies, and quinoa.
Being healthy doesn’t have to be bland. This week’s food prep was full of flavor and I felt satisfied with every meal!
