Been traveling since 4am. Got home from #albuquerquenewmexico from spreading @cnd love and I still made time to #mealplan and #mealprep! Gonna post a little different today. I have been getting a few inquiries about how I go about on my meal prepping. So here we go...Start with picking one day a week as your "plan and prep" day. Grocery shop on this day as well! Monday is the day I use. I start off with listing what we will eat and when for the week and then list out the grocery list which generally looks like this...
Breakfast egg muffin Tuesday & Thursday. Breakfast burrito Wednesday & Friday. Fruit and veggie protein smoothie Monday-Friday.
Chicken Adobo Tuesday & Thursday.
Lasagna Wednesday & Friday.
Thai Style Coconut Chicken Tuesday & Thursday. Stuffed Salmon with corn and Brussel sprouts Monday & Friday. •••••••••••••••
Turkey sausage patties
Protein lasagna pasta
Low fat ricotta
Low fat mozzarella
Grounded Italian turkey
Snap pea pods
Red bell peppers
Nothing beats fresh but it usually everything still taste fine by Friday. I don't do the traditional meal prep where you buy things in bulk and make the same meal for the week. I usually make two servings of each recipe so we are only eating the same thing twice during the week. As for recipes I get them everywhere 😜 I get a lot of my inspiration from Pinterest and I like http://instagram.com/mealpreponfleek. We like to eat low fat low carb high protein meals so a lot of the recipes I usually have to modify. For Vietnamese recipes I like to use http://www.theravenouscouple.com and then I modify accordingly to our dietary needs. Also,I advise you to have a plethora of tupperware containers on hand, you are going to need them! If you want to go hog wild, I suggest buying tupperware of similar sizes/shapes so you can easily stack them in your fridge, making your meal prep more space efficient so your fridge doesn't become a war zone.
