Welcome to the first official meal prep for 2016!
I have been prepping since the start of the year, however I got ill and was only eating soup and shakes as my throat couldn’t handle much else for days…not very exciting meal prep to share. So let’s see what I am eating now that I’m back!
The back row some of my standbys: apples, spaghetti squash, soup and Shakeology. I prep the spaghetti squash by splitting it in two, scooping out the seeds, lightly brushing it with olive oil, sprinkling salt and pepper on it and roasting it at 425 degrees in the oven. Then I add no-sugar added tomato sauce, veggies and TVP (textured vegetable protein).
I’ve been drinking Shakeology for almost 6 months now and have noticed big changes! My hair and nails grow faster, I get more energy from it–less runs to the breakroom for caffeine– and I am losing weight by replacing a meal with it. It’s my favorite post-workout treat and it has 73 superfoods, vitamins and nutrients so it’s my healthiest meal of the day!
The last row begins with the bananas. It contains two 50/50 salads of field greens and spinach, each with 3 oz. of grilled salmon with Trader Joes “Everyday Seasoning” on top. To the side is some Olive Garden salad dressing, because that stuff is addictive as heck! Next in the row are bags of bagged veggies with chipotle hummus to go with them. You will notice I have more veggies than hummus, that’s because the celery is cut and prepared with one wedge of low-fat Garlic Herb Laughing Cow cheese spread in it’s center.
Not a bad spread for this week! I prepped 8 meals total, plus my fruit and veggies. The rest of the meals will be Shakeology for breakfast/post-workout and freshly prepared items.
