Day 42: Meal Prep Day!

Today’s meal prep was pretty simple.  My breakfast will be first thing in the morning and consist of eggs, oatmeal, and a banana.  Not much need for prep there.

The next meal is my high carb meal.  I’m having it at work around 10 am.  This week my high carb meal is a bagel with peanut butter, grapes, and carrots.  Not to tricky.  Make 5 PB&J.  Put them in containers.  Clean grapes and carrots.  Put them in 5 containers.  Bam! A week’s worth of snacks


Lunch was going to be a little trickier but still pretty easy.  Pork shoulder roast with warm quinoa, broccoli, and spinach salad.  First I slow cooked the pork shoulder for about 6 hours on high in the crock pot.  Next I cooked the quinoa.  I liked how little time quinoa takes compared to my old go to, brown rice.  While the quinoa was cooking I boiled the broccoli, sauteed the spinach, and mixed the dressing for the salad.


Once the quinoa, broccoli, and spinach were ready I mixed them all with a mustard, olive oil, and red wine vinegar dressing.  I put the salad in 5 containers for the pork to be added later.

While this was Happening I watched the New King Arthur Movie.  I like it.  I was a little sad there was no Merlin, but whatever.

My post-workout shake will be the usual.  No prep needed there.  I’ll make it once I get home.

Dinner is going to be whatever I feel like that night as long as it is made up of:

  • 4 starch servings
  • 1 veg serving
  • 1 fruit or dessert (<100 kcal)
  • 3 -4 oz meat
  • 1-2 tsp of fat.

Last night this was a BBQ chicken sandwich on a whole wheat bun, spinach salad, and a banana.

That’s my meal prep for the week.  Did I mention I didn’t even need to go to the store this week.  Who said it costs more to eat well?  Keep reading to see how it was!
