I prep, you prep, we all prep!

Let’s talk meal prep.

Wait. Are you on IG? Do we follow each other? CourtneyWise5. Usually I post about food.

SO, down to business. Meal prep is daunting, huh? Figure out if you are a one day prepper or a 2 day prepper. I’m a Sunday and Wednesday kind of gal. #MathProblems

The meal plan below can work for either, but you should always eat your fish first. Leftover fish is not great, so it should at least be fresh. Try saying “fresh fish first.” It’s kind of hard.

You are going to eat chicken 5 times.  So, depending on how big your meat portions you need to count how many breasts to buy. Then buy a steak– because you deserve it. And buy salmon and ground turkey. Expensive to buy all this meat? Yup. But not any more expensive than your $3.00 a box cereal and $5.00 sandwich from Subway. Word.

Guidelines:

* Grab the largest head of cabbage. All chopped up should give you 4 cups if not more.

* I eat broccoli every day. Twice a day. It works for me. Buy what green veggies you like and force yourself to eat it. Be creative with spices. I put hot sauce on everything. Here’s proof:

* Turkey tacos: buy tortillas (preferably the low carb options with the least ingredients) and stuff with tons of veggies and salsa. Cheese and avocado are toppings, not fillers. IMG_1625

* Grill chicken, burgers and salmon together. Also wrap broccoli in foil after putting tons of seasoning with a bit of olive oil and throw on grill with sweet potatoes.

* Then the only things left to do is brown your ground turkey which you should season heavily because it’s totally bland and stick your cabbage in the crock pot. Lastly, Make “overnight” oats a mainstay and put your breakfast in separate containers. 1 cup oats, 1/2 c blueberries and your milk of your choice– do this 5 times and you never have to think about breakfast.

* Your kids will help. And likely eat what you are making.

* Put spoons in your purse or gym bag. If you meal prep, you eat on the go. Eating with your hands is totally primal but not suggested. =)

* Sometimes you miss count and your meals are random compilations of fresh stuff you have prepped. Whatever works. At least I’m not eating out.
