Full Meal Prep Details

Hello cupcakes,

Let me walk you through my meal prep for the week. Here is the plan:

Breakfast: 1/3 c quinoa, 2-3 scrambled eggs
Lunch: 1/3 c quinoa, steamed broccoli, 3 oz of chicken breast with homemade mayo
Dinner: kale chips, 1/3 c quinoa, 3 oz. lean ground beef, avocado
Snack: blueberries & if I am hungry then I will have some baked oatmeal with egg whites

Basically, meal prep takes me about 2-3 hours depending on the food I am making. This week, the meals are pretty simple and basic. I needed to use my qunioa before I start a round of Whole30 next week. 

I start off by baking my chicken in the oven. I cook 4-5 chicken breast in the oven at 375 for 30-45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. 

While the chicken is cooking, I cook some ground beef in a pan. I added Flavor God seasoning to both the chicken and ground beef. 

You can also scramble a big batch of eggs while you are cooking the beef {Multitasking at its finest}.

I cook the quinoa next{according to the package directions}. I used 2 cups of quinoa here. 

Next, steam 2 heads of broccoli in a pot of water until tender. 

Oil a baking pan for kale chips. You will need the oven at 375 degrees for this too. I peel the leaves off the stem and add them to the baking pan. Once I get a layer of kale, I sprinkle it with pink Himalayan salt. Bake in the oven for 4-5 minutes, then remove and stir. Return to the oven until the kale chips are crispy. You will need to carefully watch these because they will burn fast. 

That is basically all there is to my meal prep for this week. I have leftovers of the baked oatmeal from last week that I may eat if I get hungry. I used 1 avocado for all the dinners. The homemade mayo is just two eggs, light olive oil, pink Himalayan salt, and Dijon mustard. If you google "Whole30 mayo" you will find the recipe. 

I am totally obsessing over these RX Bars. If you have not had one of these before, they are great emergency snacks & I can have them as emergency snacks during Whole30. Whoop!

Today, I made some kale chips to snack on. 

I also made some green waffles. The recipe for these is on my Instagram page: @toriswholelife_bbg. 

Yes... they are green. No.., they do not taste bad. They are only green because of the spirulina I used to make them. Spirulina is full of healthy nutrients. The sauce beside the waffle strips is protein dip. 

I hope you all enjoyed this meal prep post. Stay tuned... next weekend I will be prepping for my third round of Whole30. I have some awesome recipes I am looking forward to using!
