Eating well is a form of self respect! That’s why I set time aside every week to make sure I have the proper food prepared. I love buffet style meal prepping because it saves me time from having to separate out each meal plus I can mix and match as I go. I also made two salad jars because that’s an easy go to of mine. Below is a snap shot of some of my groceries:

I spend part of Sunday cooking great food for the week. Check out a layout of my cooked food below. For those on the 21 Day Fix eating plan, I’m in the 1500–1799 calorie level and I get 4 green containers (veggies), 3 purple containers (fruits), 4 red containers (proteins), 3 yellow containers (carbs), 1 blue container (healthy fats), 1 orange container (nuts and seeds), and 4 teaspoons (oils and nut butters) each day.

How to make shredded chicken (makes 4 servings): 
Ingredients:
1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)
16 oz chicken breast
Flavorgod seasoning
Garlic powder
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth (or enough to cover chicken)
Directions:
Place chicken in pan with broth, seasoning and olive oil.
Bring to boil and let simmer for 15-20 minutes.
Cover and leave heat on low.
Continue to cook for another 45-75 minutes or until chicken shreds when you use a fork.
To shred chicken, it’s easiest while warm/ Use two forks to pull the chicken apart.

 

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. Buffet style meal prepping also makes it easy to mix and match 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.
