Happy Sunday guys!
Hope you all were able to enjoy the beautiful sunsine this weekend. Spring is getting closer and closer! 😀
Today after church and lunch, I decided to do a little meal prepping for the week. I don’t like to prep all meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner), but I like to keep some things consistent and ready to eat throughout the week.
This week I decided to have my lunches roughly the same + to have them prepared.
I had some leftover baked chicken, so I decided to brown some ground turkey to change things up day to day.
(And yes, I know there’s pink in the meat…I finished cooking it) 😀
I was going to patty out turkey burgers, but decided against it.
I also roasted brussel sprouts and made sweet potato fries (which are my fave)
For the brussel sprouts I cut them in half, drizzled with olive oil, + sprinkled them with salt and pepper.
For the sweet potato fries, I decided to sprinkle cinnamon on top.
I baked both of these on the same pan at 350 for 20-30 minutes.
I was going to cook some rice, but I’ve been having some of that recently, so I opted to cook quinoa again. Quinoa is one of the acquired taste foods in my opinion, but seasoned with garlic salt + pepper (and mixed in with other food) it’s not too bad!
To end things, I made another batch of my peanut butter oat balls, but this time I made them with way less chocolate chips, and used almond butter instead of regular peanut butter. I also added 1 scoop of a cappuccino flavored protein powder for extra protein and flavor. I was a fan of how they turned out!
I didn’t make out any breakfast items. I’ve been on a scrambled egg kick lately, but after a couple weeks of that I crave other foods. This week it’ll probably be protein shakes, smoothies, or oatmeal.
My breakfasts, lunches, and snacks will be fairly similar, but I like to be open for whatever and to have dinner free for different things. Sometimes I’m out for dinner or someone else cooks, so I like to have that variety. Balance, ya’ll! 🙂
-Go to gym 4-5 days
