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!
