I have been meal prepping this entire school year. Otherwise I don’t bring a lunch to work and if I don’t bring a lunch I go out and then I spend money and I’m not okay with that. I have a scattered system of meal prepping right now and I’m going to try and condense everything into one place. This week’s menu:
Shake with banana, berries and almond milk (1 red, 2 purple)
Steak salads (2 green, 1 red, 1 blue, 1/2 orange)
Stuffed Pepper (1 red, 1 green, 1 blue, 1 tsp)
Philly Cheesesteak stuffed peppers (per pepper: 1 red, 1 blue, 1 green)
Chicken fried rice (1 red, 1 green, 1 yellow, 1 tsp)
Salmon with couscous and veggies (1 red, 1 yellow, 1 green, 1 tsp)
Almonds (1 blue)
Cucumbers/Carrots with Hummus (1 green, 1 blue)
Greek Yogurt with berries and granola (1 red, 1 purple, 1 yellow)
This week also includes a happy hour on Wednesday, Father’s day (and leftover steak) and dinner at my parents. Sunday we are having friends over and grilling (I’ll [try to] opt for a grilled portobella mushroom, corn, pineapple and chopped caprese salad over the pulled pork sandwich). I’ll have to plan accordingly for breakfast and lunch that day.
Next week we are going to Virginia to visit family, so the diet and workouts will take a short pause during that time. Still, I’ll be trying to choose healthier options and refraining from alcohol, or at least making better choices with alcohol.
Wish me luck.
