One of the perks of meal prepping is knowing exactly what you will be eating during the week ahead.
I thought I would start sharing my meal prep/plans in case it might help out someone else. If you’re feeling stuck, uninspired, or bored, I hope these will help you. I also hope it will keep me motivated to not get into a food rut and to try new things.
I’ll be having yogurt messes for breakfast.
- 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
- 1/3 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
- 1/2 banana
- 1 tablespoon peanut butter
- 1/2 tablespoon chia seeds
- ground cinnamon (to taste)
After my workouts this week, I’ll be having fruit and veggie protein shakes.
- 1 scoop plain protein powder
- 1 scoop glutamine (optional)
- 1/2 cup frozen peaches
- 1/2 cup frozen raspberries
- 2 handfuls of spinach
- 1 cup 2% milk
I use unsweetened, plain protein powder that can basically be flavored any way you would like. The frozen fruit alone won’t make this shake super sweet. You can add stevia if you prefer a sweeter shake.
I’m making double-protein turkey and cheese sandwiches for lunch, with a serving of fruit on the side. I’ll be making these daily because I feel like bread tends to get too dry when left in the refrigerator for a few days.
Below is our plan for dinners this week. We have done a lot of the prep ahead of time (cutting veggies, meat, etc.) and will be having leftovers a few nights, too.
Sunday: Chili (made by Jeremy’s dad)
Monday: Crockpot Nikujaga (Japanese beef stew)
Tuesday: Fiesta Skillet dinner
Wednesday: Crockpot Mongolian beef, served over rice
Thursday: chicken/fish, roasted broccoli, Annie’s mac ‘n cheese
Friday: Nikujaga leftovers
Saturday: Fiesta Skillet lefftovers
