Meal Prepping

I love meal prepping.  Doing so helps to keep me on track with weight goals.

My typical daily food intake looks like this:

  • Overnight oats recipe a couple times a week, and having a cup of yogurt with a banana or apple on the other mornings
  • Uncooked green beans before lunch
  • Baked chicken (meal prep recipe) or uncooked tuna on a bed of farro or quinoa
  • Handful of almonds (plain, not roasted) later in the afternoon
  • I drink a crap ton of water during the day, and will occasionally have a hazelnut coffee from RaceTrac in the morning
  • Chicken for dinner or a salad

I try to stay on a good diet free of processed foods and junk foods.  I’m human and have cravings; I have a HORRIBLE sweet tooth.  I find my sweet tooth is pretty manageable, but keeping from eating processed foods is a bit trickier. I love easy foods.  To be honest, I’m lazy.  I don’t like cooking, however, I know that once I get in the kitchen and get started, I whip through it and am always thankful for getting my arse up off the sofa.

I just cooked this recipe today:

Easy Pesto Chicken

I’m not a fan of tomatoes, unless they’re squooshed in a sauce.  I changed up the recipe a bit, using boneless chicken breast instead of thighs because eww.  I added shredded carrots, a squish of lemon juice, and roasted tomato/basil pesto.  Also, each container has a half of a baked sweet potato.

This recipe came out really good!  So tasty!
