Hey guys! Happy Hump Day! Things have finally settled down around here and I have had some time to do some real meal prepping. I love having just quick go to meals that I can prep quickly, but I do get tired of them sometimes. The last couple of weeks I have been eating yogurt with fruit for breakfast and ground turkey and steamed veggies for lunch. I have been buying the frozen steamer veggies. By doing that, I can have my meals prepped for the week in less than 30 minutes. But, I was ready for some real meals this week.
I went grocery shopping on Saturday. I bought for my breakfasts and lunches: chicken breasts, tilapia, carrots, hummus, sweet potatoes, apples, blueberries, strawberries, pineapple, bananas, and yogurt. Not pictured: broccoli, GNC chocolate shake mixes, eggs, Sara Lee 45 calorie whole wheat bread, spray butter, and Nature Valley granola bars.
If you follow me on Snapchat (runandlivehappy) you saw all of this being made on Sunday night!
I started by cutting up my sweet potatoes into bite sized pieces. I used 4 sweet potatoes. I mixed 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1 tablespoon of honey, and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon together and coated the potatoes in it. I then spread them on a baking sheet and sprinkled salt on them. I baked them in the oven at 375 for 35 minutes.
While they were baking I cut up my broccoli. I mixed it with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, garlic powder, and Lawry’s seasoning salt.
At 25 minutes left on the timer, I put the broccoli in the oven too. At 15 minutes, I pulled both pans out and stirred them.
While they were cooking, I cut up my pineapple,
washed my blueberries, and washed and cut up my strawberries.
When the veggies were done, I turned the oven to broil and put the fish in. It cooked for 7 minutes.
When everything was done, I portioned it out into my containers. (I have more fish to cook tonight. I wasn’t sure how long it would last.)
All together, this took me a little under an hour and now I have meals and snacks ready for the entire week!
I hope you find some inspiration from my meals!
