𝗪𝐡𝐨 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐮𝐠𝐠𝐥𝐞𝐬 𝐰𝐢𝐭𝐡 𝐦𝐞𝐚𝐥 𝐩𝐫𝐞𝐩? I hear this a lot and I honestly like to keep it super simple so that I actually follow through with it. 𝐌𝐲 𝐠𝐨𝐚𝐥 𝐢𝐬 𝐂𝐎𝐍𝐕𝐄𝐍𝐈𝐄𝐍𝐂𝐄!
Here’s a little hack: I break things up into 4 categories and try to have 2-3 choices for each to choose from during the week.
𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐢𝐧𝐬: chicken, ground turkey or lean ground beef, fish, eggs, egg whites, protein powder, Greek yogurt, cottage cheese
𝐂𝐚𝐫𝐛𝐬: sweet potatoes, oats, rice cakes, quinoa, brown rice, beans, popcorn, cereal, frozen fruit, bread or tortillas
𝐅𝐚𝐭𝐬: oils, nut butters, coconut flakes, nuts & seeds, dressings, cream cheese, avocado, higher fat cheeses
𝐕𝐞𝐠𝐞𝐭𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞𝐬: greens mixes, frozen vegetables, roasted veggies, etc…
I like to prep any meats ahead, and eggs you can hard boil, make egg muffins, or cook throughout the week.
If I have non frozen veggies, I’ll usually chop and pre roast along with things like sweet potatoes. Brown rice, quinoa, or any grains will get cooked ahead too.
And that’s honestly it! I’ll do a lot of frozen veggies, random grab and go snacks, smoothies in the blender, mug cakes, oats in the microwave, Greek yogurt bowls etc…
The simpler you make it the better! 𝘞𝘢𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘩𝘦𝘭𝘱𝘧𝘶𝘭?! I get asked about this a lot and want to assure you that there’s no right or wrong way to do this. You have to do what works best for you and make sure you have foods you ENJOY on hand. Keep it simple! 𝘈𝘯𝘺𝘰𝘯𝘦 𝘦𝘭𝘴𝘦 𝘱𝘳𝘦𝘱 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴? 𝘞𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘲𝘶𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘴 𝘥𝘰 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘩𝘢𝘷𝘦?
