Meal Prep Is Where It's At

Sunday, Sunday, Sunday! This is my day to make all my breakfasts, lunches, and some side dishes for the work week. I believe it really helps me stay more on track than if I didn't. It takes me about 2+ hours for all the prep and cooking.

For my breakfasts, I make 5 oz egg whites with Kale. I make them each individually to control the amount of egg whites for each.

For my lunches, I make turkey patties (purchased at Costco). I've started making all 12 in the package and then freezing them, instead of making five for the week each Sunday. I microwave the by putting a few on a plate at time, season, add a little water and microwave for a six minutes, flip, season, and microwave for another six minutes.

Sides, I typically make for the week (lunches and dinners) are asparagus, quinoa, spaghetti squash (my latest obsession!), butternut squash, and/or brussel sprouts.

I also always have a bag of mini Sweet Peppers on hand (purchased at Costco), cut up English Cucumbers (Costco), pre-cut Celery (Costco), and if I find radishes on sale I'll buy those as well to have ready to grab.

I know a lot of people really have a hard time with setting aside time to do this but once you start it really becomes a great habit.

Now if I just had a bigger refridgerator / freezer!
