Weekend Meal Prep Challenge

SATURDAY

This weekend, we challenge you to prepare food for the the work week ahead! Spend an hour or 2 on Sunday in the kitchen and you’ll have plenty of free time during the week. This will also keep you from impulse eating unhealthy foods!

We suggest cooking 2 different protein sources, 3 vegetable options, and 2 carbohydrate options!

When choosing your protein, always select lean protein! Keep your ratio 90/10 or better.

Avoid adding excess oils to your vegetables. Place your vegetables in a large mixing bowl or dish and toss with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. You’ll be surprised how well it spreads out over a large serving.

Always select whole foods when choosing your carbs. We suggest sweet potatoes, fruit, quinoa, or brown rice.

You do not need a large serving. 1 medium/large  apple is about 35-45g of carbs.

When you build your plate, select 1 of each and put in a bowl. I protein, 1 carb, 1 vegetable. The last thing you’ll need to add is fat.

Here are some suggestions:

1 handful of almonds

1 5-20 olives

1 small avocado

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon almond butter

If you want to be healthy, this is the best habit you can start implementing to your life. It will save you money, promote your fitness goals, and give you a little bit of your time back. Try it out and let us know how it goes!
