Eating well is a form of self- respect! This week I’m so excited to have some goodies sent to me from the Mango Board. I have an epic buffet style meal prep with plenty of food to last me till the weekend! Because being prepare isn’t half the battle – it is the battle.
Here’s what’s pictured above:
Proteins – baked chicken, baked salmon, hard-boiled eggs and sautéed shrimp
Protein powders – @shakeology & vega performance protein (not shown)
Veggies – raw baby carrots, mini bell peppers, cauliflower rice, sautéed Brussels sprouts, steamed zucchini, steamed artichoke and steamed broccolini
Carbs – lentils, sweet potatoes, edamame and oatmeal (not shown)
Fruit – mangos from @mangoboard
Healthy fats – avocados and hummus
Seeds/oils – balsamic vinaigrette dressing
There is no better feeling than being set for the week! Check out one of my meal prep plate combos below.
You can’t go wrong with this combination of sautéed shrimp, sliced mango from @mangoboard, mini bell peppers, steamed zucchini and broccolini. Let’s just say my tummy was happy. Portion Fix Containers: 1 purple, 1 red, 2+ green, 2 tsp.
Here’s another one of my combinations for the week.
Lentils make a girl happy. Check out all the veggies on that plate too – broccolini, cauliflower rice with mixed veggies and mini bell peppers. I baked the chicken with my favorite lemon & garlic flavorgod seasoning too. Portion Fix Containers: 1 yellow, 1 red, 2+ green, 2 tsp.
Q: Where do you get the black containers?
A: Click here to buy the same containers from amazon.
Q: Do you get bored of eating the same thing every day?
A: No at all! I switch it up on a weekly basis and choose my healthy favorites that I don’t mind eating often. I also add different seasonings to keep things interesting.
Q: Do you pre-cook all your food at the beginning of the week or do you just cut it up and package it? Does the food stay fresh all week?
A: I personally like to pre-cook all my food! I keep it properly refrigerated and find that it stays fresh up to 5 days. If you prefer, you can totally freeze the last 2 days or cook 2-3 days at a time.
Q: Can you put any of these meals in the freezer?
A: I personally don’t but I know people who do but just remember to thaw it in time.
