Can you believe it is already November? Where has time gone? Yesterday I meal prepped for week 2 of the Whole30 and Carb Cycling. If you want more information on Carb Cycling it can be found here: Carb Cycling and more info about the Whole30 can be found here: Whole30.
Now let's walk through my meal prep...
First off, I roasted peppers and onions in the oven at 375 degrees for about 15-20 minutes or until the peppers and onions are tender. I put aluminum foil on the baking sheet so I would have easier clean up. Here is an after the peppers and onions were baked & below is a picture of them before baking.
I roasted some raw almonds in the oven at 275 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until the almonds start to be fragrant. You can to take them out before they darken. I let the almonds cool afterwards.
Then I ground the almonds up in my food processor. For more information on homemade almond butter, you can check out this blog post: Homemade Almond Butter.
Next, I cooked some green beans in the oven at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes or until they are tender. I crushed some garlic from the farmers' market on top before baking.
I cooked some white mushrooms on the stove top in a pan. I covered the mushrooms with a lid and let them steam until tender. You can add seasonings if you would like.
I also slow cooked lots and lots of chicken. It took two 4 lb bags of chicken plus one 3 lb bag to get me enough chicken for all week. I slow cooked the chicken in 3 batches. In the crock pot, I added the frozen chicken breast, juice of 2 lemons, Mrs. dash garlic and herb seasoning, and a little bit of pink Himalayan salt. I let it cook on low for 6-8 hours.
I cooked 2 sweet potatoes in the microwave on the potato setting. Make sure you poke holes into the potatoes before microwaving or else they will explode.
I cooked zucchini in the oven just like last week. You can find those here: Garlic Oven Roasted Zucchini.
I am going to cook my eggs the day of because I like them fresh better!
Here is my meal plan for low carb days (Mon, Wed, Thurs, Sat, Sun):
Here is my meal plan for high carb days (Tue & Fri):
Lastly, here was my first meal of today: 4 oz lean ground turkey, peppers and onions, and 100 g. avocado.
