As I was putting together today's What I Ate Wednesday, I realized a majority of my meals were so quick and easy to make, so while it may look like I spent hours preparing my meals- I didn't! A little meal prep one day a week (I'm not talking about making 10 full out meals, just a few 'sides') can make all the difference when it comes to sticking to your plan.
Top to bottom, left to right:
I started the day off with my usual scramble- rosemary red potatoes, eggs, and Applegate chicken sausage. I prep the potatoes on Sunday which makes throwing this meal together a breeze- 5 minutes and you're done.
My morning snack was greek yogurt, berries, and organic pumpkin flax cereal. No prep here, just a few minutes to put it all together.
The waffle is probably what took me the longest- probably 10 minutes total. I blend 1/2 cup oats, 2 egg whites, 1 scoop protein powder, cinnamon, stevia, and vanilla. Then cook and top with fruit and sugar free syrup.
Lunch was chicken pulled from a rotisserie chicken, 90 second brown rice and quinoa , and brussel sprouts that I also prepped on Sunday.
An apple and peanut butter… I won't explain that one :)
And lastly chili over some spinach. I cooked a big batch of the chili yesterday which will likely last us through the week for lunches and snacks.
It doesn't have to be hard, it just takes a little bit of preparation and you're good to go!
