What I Ate Wednesday #57 – Food Prep

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are having a great week! :) Last weekend I received an email from a reader asking me to share what my meal prep looks like on Sunday’s. So, you ask and I deliver! ;) I have also included one dinner and dessert since I don’t meal prep those! I can’t even express how much time it saves me during the week! All of this takes me about 1-1.5 hours and I am set for Monday through Friday! Nothing to fuss about when I get home after a 10+ hour work day! I hope you find some inspiration in my weekly meal prep! Have a fabulous day! :)

This is what it looks like at the end! But I will break it down for you, so you can see exactly what is in this madness! ;)

I have my rice cakes and pumpkin (in the mini containers) all prepped and already sweetened with cinnamon and toffee stevia that I eat post workout with one of my protein shakes (in the back)

I make 2 protein shakes at a time (so Monday and Tuesday)

I also have my pre workout and BCAA’s prepped for Monday and Tuesday (small shakers)

Then I have my 5 lunches prepped. I normally do 2 meals the same and then a fifth. But it depends on what is in the house. This week I have:

1) Cajun baked Salmon with oven roasted asparagus, cauliflower and zucchini (not shown because I had already put it in the fridge) The veggies are roasted in coconut oil.

2) I have a burger salad (big container)

3) I have the makings for a chicken salad (small container with the avocado), but since I only have 1 large salad container, I have the ingredients (minus the lettuce) prepped to just toss into the container after this container comes home!

4) Coconut oil, oven roasted asparagus and zucchini with sautéed spinach and portobello mushrooms along with oven baked chicken topped with colby jack cheese! (the cheese gets all nice and melted when I heat it up!)

5) This is the same as meal 4

There is no rhyme or reason to what I eat each day, just whatever I am in the mood for. I bring all my meals to work on Monday and grab what I like from my fridge every day.

I also have my almonds and protein powder portioned out in individual ziplocks for my quick afternoon snacks! (This seems to be the easiest thing for me to sneak in lately) Otherwise I might have a greek yogurt with cinnamon and almonds.

That’s all it is! Nice, quick, healthy and delicious!! All done in about 60-90 minutes!

Dinners and desserts are made at home every night, so I don’t need to worry about prepping those.

Dinner last night was a bison burger topped with LOTS of Steels ketchup, my nightly oven roasted coconut oil veggies: asparagus, cauliflower and brussels, plus a side of cheesy zucchini! I roasted the zucchini and topped with it Eden Organic no salt tomato basil sauce, some parmesan and 1oz of fresh mozzarella! Delicious!

Dessert was even better! 2 Caramel rice cakes with 2tbs of Barney’s Cocoa Coconut Almond Butter, plus a casein shake (not shown)

**Just a side note, this almond butter is AMAZING! I HIGHLY recommend you buy some! ;)
