If you FAIL to plan, you plan to FAIL. You've most likely heard this saying before, and it rings especially true when it comes to food preparation.
What if I told you all takes is 3 steps to make your life easier?
A regular food prep on a Sunday for a week worth of lunchs looks much like what I've prepared in this article in three easy steps: Purchase. Cook. Portion.
All ingredients can be purchased in the SHOP by clicking on the link.
Weight the chicken to 4 oz.
Measure the quinoa to 1/2 cup.
Cool the eggs, mark with a B for "Boil" and return to refrigerator.
Portion out the food and have it ready for to grab and go for the week. I like to use ziplock snack bags.
The apples, celery and almonds are ready to go.
Lunch can be a challenging choice everyday, especially if you are working or running errands around town. Here is an example of what your day of meals should look like.
Start with a balanced breakfast.
10:00 a.m. - eat an apple.
Noon - grab the chicken and quiona - microwave - season to your liking with a low-calorie favorite. On of my favorites is 505 Green Chile because it is low sodium, low calorie and is packed with flavor!Add the chicken and quinoa over 1 cup of fresh lettuce and you have a delicious, balance lunch.
3:00 p.m - snack on 2 celery sticks smeared with almond butter or snack on 14 almonds.
End the day with a balanced dinner.
