Back on the Meal Plannin' Wagon!

Okay Okay! Fine! I get it! Lesson learned! Meal planning IS better.

Which is why this week I have food prepped my face off and I am sharing the goods with you, per a request from a facebook follower.

I made lots of different things today and I am so excited to have my entire week of breakfast, lunch AND dinner already made for me! Here is a run down of the different things I made!

Hard Boiled Eggs
Turkey Sausage
Whole Wheat Toast

Lunch/ Dinner:
Salad with Chicken Breast
Salad with Steak
Minestrone Soup
Chicken with Sweet Potato and Broccoli
Steak with Sweet Potato and Broccoli
Chicken Sausage with (you guessed it) Sweet Potato and Broccoli
Chicken, Steak and Sausage with Asparagus

Fruits to snack: 

Veggies to snack:
Peppers (red, yellow and orange)

Tada! And all it took was a day of cooking, some plastic baggies, and some ikea tupperware. 

Do you meal prep? Any tips? I am excited to see how I do this week. I usually have a hard time getting all my food in!

  1. I do prep some. I make smoothie bags for the week for breakfast because it's quick to blend and head out. I usually grab some fruit and have leftovers for lunch at work. If I don't bring breakfast and lunch I eat crap. Bringing food with me helps me stay on track since I have healthy options with me. I also buy health snacks and use baggies to make 100 calorie snacks. I am frugal and it's cheaper than the 100 calorie packs they sell. I usually buy an emergency healthy choice dinner for work just in case one day I forget my lunch of didn't cook the night before.

  2. I do A LOT of roasted veggies - carrots, cauliflower, sweet potato, broccoli, etc. I actually find them to be better the second day around anyway but they're easy to prepare, very flavorful and are all filling veggies!

    The only other prepping I do is bake/grill chicken. I eat that stuff like it's going out of style. :)

    Happy Monday!

  3. I eat so much better when I actually take the ime to plan ahead

  4. Awesome! I've never had a sweet potato before lol. Do you eat it plain?

  5. I don't do a lot of meal prep but I do meal plan before shopping. That helps me stay on track and keep from stopping for fast food after work.

  6. Oh I love when meal prep is done! I am just horrible at getting started of course. I had a good meal prep week last week and I didn't quite get myself fully prepared this week. Just one question, how long are the hard boiled eggs good for? I want to get some of those done tonight and put in the fridge but I'm not exactly sure how long they last. I've never been a hard boiled egg eater unless it was deviled eggs.


I would love to hear from you! Have something to say? Say it here!
