Meal Prep

Now before I get into what I made the second week back into meal prepping let me share some of my tips. Now these are things that help me, they may not be what works for you but it does for me.
  • Surround yourself with healthy snacks
  • Make healthy food easily accessible- ie clean and cut fruit when you get home from the store for a quick and convenient snack.
  • Realize that it is not a diet but a lifestyle change
  • You are not a slave to your diet, you want it to be enjoyable and tasty or you will get bored really fast.
  • It is ok to indulge sometimes but practice moderation
  • If you can't tell if you are hungry or bored, drink water
  • Drink water all the time and drink lots of it- it helps maintain that full feeling for longer
 Now before I get onto the next week let me say that though I tend to be a creature of habit my taste buds get bored. I cannot have the same meal everyday I will get bored and want to indulge in something else. I used to be perfectly fine with eating the same thing everyday but now I can't. This does happen and so diets and plans should constantly change.
In this plan we have:
  • Once again grilled lemon garlic chicken and zucchini (clearly one of my favorites when it comes to prepping)
  • Chicken apple sausage with sauteed peppers and onions
  • Fig Salad: Arugula, fresh figs, goats cheese, cucumber, tomato
  • Dressing: 1T Balsamic 1/2 T Olive Oil
  • Fruit Snack: cantaloupe, raspberries, strawberries and green grapes
  • Carrots- Mid Morning snack with hard boiled egg
  • Hard boiled eggs.
 I tend to want to snack a lot so I make sure I have healthy snacks to do so. I may be switching it up and doing less snacks since I think this is starting to be too much food for my day.

Stay Crafty
