Crunched for time? This meal prep is the perfect way to set yourself up for the week and save time from separating out all the food. I kept my foods simple so it took me well under 2 hours to meal prep. Check out my grocery cart full of goodies for the week – because you can’t eat what you don’t have in the house.

Seriously, I love Trader Joe’s healthy selection and great prices. Melissa’s Produce also sent me some yummy lentils and baby bananas that I included in my meal prep. They make it super easy to order produce right to your door.

Here’s some of my items for this week! I love how easy it is to combine what I want as I go. For anyone doing the 21 Day Fix program, it’s also super easy to use your color containers to measure out the food as you go.
Proteins – baked salmon, soft boiled eggs and chicken
Protein Powders (not shown) – Shakeology & Vega Performance Protein
Veggies – broccolini, sautéed mushrooms & broccoli, and sautéed Asian stir fry
Carbs – @melissasproduce lentils, oatmeal and sweet potato
Fruit – apples and bananas
Healthy fats – hummus and almonds
Seeds/oils – balsamic vinaigrette dressing
Seasonings – Flavorgod

This would last one person about 4-5 days if you’re near a calorie bracket like mine which is 1,500-1,700 calories.

Grocery List:

  • a dozen eggs 
  • 2 boxes of broccolini 
  • 1 red onion
  • 2 boxes of Melissa’s Produce lentils
  • 1 box overnight oats
  • 3-4 large sweet potatoes
  • 1.25 lbs chicken
  • .75 lbs salmon

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.
