Keeping your meal preps simple yet delicious is the key to success. I decided to shake it up a little this week from my usual buffet style meal prep. The new OXO snap containers  I got had awesome tight sealed lids. I included a variety of veggies and stuck to chicken, eggs, turkey and Shakeology for quality sources of protein.

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. Here’s this weeks info below:
