Meal Prepping // Clean Eating

Guess what DAY it is?!

………….

Meal Prep Day!

Not really, Meal Prep Day was actually Sunday. But today we get to talk about it. :)

Meal Prep clean eating dinners for a week (stronglikemycoffee.com)

When I began Jamie Eason’s LiveFit Program, I committed to the nutrition plan which is 100% clean eating. This means 12 weeks of egg white omelettes, lean protein and greens, whey protein shakes, and lots of veggies & fruits. In an effort to ease my hectic school week and stay on track with my diet, I took 4 hours on Sunday to make a week’s worth of clean lunches and dinners. My own little lean cuisines ;)

ON THE MENU:

  • Baked seasoned white meat chicken
  • Baked Sweet Potatoes
  • Brown Rice
  • Steamed Broccoli and Green Beans
  • Sauteed zucchini & bell peppers
  • Chopped spinach, tomatoes and bell peppers (for omelettes)
  • Jamie Eason’s Turkey Meatballs
  • Jamie Eason’s Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread (girl’s gotta have dessert too.)

Cooking 6 day’s worth of lunches and dinners in one afternoon is an undertaking. My kitchen was covered in piles of cutting boards and measuring cups and tupperware and vegetables.

Packaging them all up into individual portions was fun…I had a whole Mix n’ Match thing going on so that no single meal was exactly the same. Variety, my friends.

I even finished off by baking a CLEAN batch of Jamie Eason’s Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread. Gluten-free, with no added sugar, fats, or butter. This bread is made with ground oats, applesauce, almond milk, protein powder, stevia, & cinnamon. Super healthy/pretty/delicious/clean/&GONE (800 calories for the entire freakin’ pan…)

Clean eating meal prep for the week (stronglikemycoffee.com)I’m going to be inside due to impending rain this weekend so I plan on experimenting to make a banana, mocha, and possibly pumpkin version of this. I’ll share next week :)

***Those green things are Stevia packets. I made the rookie mistake of buying a box of 40 packets versus buying an actual box of bulk Stevia. No wonder it was $3 cheaper… I tore and measured out the packets & will get the real deal next time ;) ***

Now that I’ve made it through the first week of meal prepping I’ve learned the importance of organization.

Start here: Get the chicken cleaned and in oven —-> Move on to veggie chopping —-> While the greens are steaming, start up a batch of rice —-> After the chicken comes out of the oven, swap in the sweet potatoes —-> While they bake, start cleaning up dishes —-> After everything is cool enough, weigh and measure out portions and package into containers —-> pop into the fridge or freezer depending on how long they need to last —-> feel accomplished :)
