Readers often ask me how I decide what I am going to eat on a daily basis, so I thought I’d highlight how I come up with my meals and snacks.
Just Keep It Simple …
~ Choose 2 days a week to prep your food (I do Sundays & Wednesday/Thursday), this allows me to stock back up on fresh fruit & veggies mid week
~ Make at least 3 days worth of meals (make enough for wed too, just in case you can’t prep until the evening). Make sure to do breakfast, lunch & snacks (if you are on the go in the evening, do your dinners too)
~ I find that if my week is especially busy to go ahead and weigh/measure out my food before storing (this includes snacks too, yes that does mean placing 1oz. of almonds in a bag, snack baggies are awesome!) other wise I just store and weigh as needed
~ I typically make 2 source of protein ie; chicken breast & black beans and 2 vegetables ie; asparagus and kale. This way I can mix and match
~ Great on the go snacks rice cakes & nut butters, fresh fruit and/or scoop of protein powder in a to-go cup (all you have to do is add water and you got your protein shake)
A typical looks like this:
Instant Oatmeal with a scoop of protein powder during the week
Scrambled egg whites and green on the weekend
Shake with protein powder, frozen fruit and spinach/kale
Apple with Peanut butter
Chicken with veggies OR a large salad with beans

It’s a fact that you workout harder and longer when you listen to uplifting music! I am LOVING these tunes on my iPhone lately!
Question: Do you meal prep?
