Recipe: Chicken, cooked in olive oil. Shake and bake(but not really, used the stove top: Turmeric, ‘kick’ chicken seasoning, garlic salt, because why not get the best of both? And pepper! After it was all cooked up I drizzled Italian dressing in the container, and shook it up the next day for a quick healthy go to lunch!

Do your veggies look and trust me taste this good? 😍
I started learning a new nutrition plan about 3 weeks that focuses on helping you lose weight, break emotional ties with eating, and teaches you a new mindset and outlook on food. I love that there is no measuring, counting calories, points, blah blah or anything like that. ;) I was skeptical about trying anything new, since a portion control meal plan has worked great for me, especially postpartum. But hey change is good right?
I am drinking so much more water and eating so many veggies, which helps me feel so full and satisfied without the guilt. Oh and I'm down 3lbs 😊
I am currently hosting a group for this program where I will walk you through the program while doing it along side of you!
Want to join and say YES to 2B Mindset? You will get access to the program and my accountability group TODAY. Join others on the same lifestyle journey sharing recipes, meals, progress, motivation and questions TOGETHER!

My favorite excuses are the ones that sound like “I can’t afford heathy food”, “I don’t have time to cook all that food”, or “I can’t give up eating or drinking”. -
Being healthy isn’t boring, hard or expensive. You have to put in the time and effort in the gym, why throw it away in the kitchen?! Meal prepping has made my life as a TEACHER so EASY. I am CONSTANTLY on the go, but this is typically what my day of food consists of. -
Meal 1: 2 eggs, 1/2c egg whites (I add a little bit of protein powder to make protein pancakes- NO carbs 😋🤷🏼♀️) -
Snack: 2 scoops protein powder for a shake. -
Meal 2: 2cups salad, 4oz crock pot chicken (check “my favorites”for ingredients) and 1oz almonds (wasabi is my favorite) -
Pre-workout: three rice cakes, four on leg day -
Post workout: three rice cakes, 1.5 scoops protein powder for shake
Meal 5: 93/7 lean ground beef OR 93/7 ground turkey (I add fajita seasoning for taco flavor 😍) and 2 cups veggies 🥦
Typically takes me 30 minutes to prep meats, but most of this I can grab and go. For an entire week, you can find yourself spending anywhere from $50-$75 depending on where you shop/sales. $50 for seven days, 35 meals a week.... instead of spending $10 on a pack of beer, put it towards your grocery haul 🙃 -
This is obviously very basic, but easy! If you aren’t sure of where to start, start here! Groceries that are easy to prep and go! I am always here to help! Bookmark dis and get shoppin 🛒

When you need a quick & tasty meal in the middle of the week.... 🥘 This super easy Madeira chicken with shrooms came together in no time and with (mostly) pantry ingredients everyone has on hand. What’s your go to throw together meal?! #thesavvygourmand#madeirachicken#quickmeals
Short cut #Recipe :
Brown chicken in pan with evoo. Set aside when almost done. Add more oil and brown mushrooms. Add scallions & garlic. Cook a minute. Add chicken/bone broth and Madeira wine/vermouth/or white wine (2:1 ratio of broth to wine), add chicken back to pan and cover for about 5-8 or until done. Add slurry (flour & water) if you want to thicken. Serve with carbs ;)
Breakfast today was carrot cake drizzled with peanut butter!! SO GOOD! And the best part.....it totally fits into my meal plan!
I like to hear mine up in the microwave a bit, but I’ve also enjoyed it as a cold snack at school!
Carrot Cake - recipe for 1 serving: 1 mini loaf or 3 muffins...I usually double or triple this to have for the week!
1 cup shredded carrots
1/4 cup oats
2 eggs; lightly beaten
3/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp vanilla
Optional 1/2 tsp stevia sweetener
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease one mini loaf pan. Combine everything in one bowl. Pour into mini loaf pan and bake for 20-25 minutes.
Add 1 tsp. nut butter (I use natural peanut butter!) to the top before serving! So delish! Enjoy!
Roasting veggies is a simple way to prepare them so you have leftovers for your breakfast, lunch, snack or dinner. I like to roast them with just coconut oil and salt then personalize spices for my kids vs the adults when served. Serve with a protein or mix with a bean pasta, or serve in or with eggs for an easy meal. Look at those colors! Now who’s excited for dinner?! #easymealprep#rosstedveggies#5aday#eatyourcolors#eatyourveggies#veggiesallday
🍴 There's No Magic Trick 🍴
This is what I like to call, "Buffet Style Meal Prep" aaaaand it's gotta be the most simple approach to feeding myself for the week, ever! All I do is choose a couple of protein sources- Prawns & XLean Ground Beef. Choose a few carb sources- Roasted Potatoes & Basil Rice & Homemade Sweet Potato Fries (not shown here) Choose a couple of vegetable sources- Roasted Carrots & Steamed Broccoli
Alongside this, I always like to have a few fresh fruit choices for the week, some frozen fruit for smoothies, and fresh veggies for snacks. I am currently eating intuitively, not tracking my macros, just listening to my body's desires. I eat until I am satisfied, and often put the rest of my meal to the side for later. I come back to it when my body asks for it. (I used to stuff myself right full 4-5x per day when macro tracking- I'd be so exhausted after while my body focused on digesting the feast lol- I was always in a food coma) this small change, listening to my appetite instead of forcing it, has helped me reserve so much energy in my days for other things.
Our bodies are very interesting. Extremely complex, amazing machines. And no two of us is exactly the same, which means, no approach is going to work the same for individuals. Nutrition is something that I am always approaching with an open mind, I intend to learn and understand as much of the *many* ways of doing things as I can. By continually learning and keeping space open for new perspectives, I allow room in my journey to honor myself in new ways. I allow room in my journey to help others honor themselves in new ways.
The trick? There is none- Listen to your body. Learn to let go of attachments to certain ways of doing things. Keep and open mind for learning, and always be eager for growth. Allow yourself the space to attract the opportunities into your life that you need to move forward in a way that is true to you on this next point in your journey. You don't have to follow something if it doesn't feel right for you- there is always another way to do things. Stay awake, stay aware, and you will be guided to exactly what you need FOR YOU in this moment 💚🌱

Cheese sauce poured onto steamed cauliflower over a layer of ham hock and tinned tomatoes. Quickest ten minute meal ever for the children and really inexpensive!
Cheese sauce is just sautéed onions in butter, double cream and cheddar and I also added some cubes of goats cheese.
First empty a tin of chopped tomatoes into the dish, sprinkle on ham hock, layer over the top the steamed cauliflower and then the cheese sauce and sprinkle with Parmesan. Bake at 180c until golden brown! #lchf#midweekmeals#easybaking#cauliflowercheese#easymealprep#cheesesauce#glutenfree#ketomealideas#banting#goodfats @lye_cross_farm @yeovalley @the_cheese_yard_ @groobarbswildfarm @mr_organic
Another round of #meatlessmonday and #mealprepmonday rolled into one. Mix and matching different types of vegetables and plant based proteins that I love. I actually have a newfound love for meals just like this haha.
Roasted broccoli, chickpeas and baby carrots + baked tofu and steamed bok choy
I’ve willingly eaten more veggies today than I EVER HAVE 💪🏻 and I’m loving how full I feel! Like I haven’t been craving any chocolate and ya knowww with that time 🍫 is normally a given 😆🤷🏼♀️ but looks like I’m rolling deep with veggies and agua. Bacon 🥓 too😇
This has been the easiest meal prep plan I’ve ever followed. And it MAD simple! Day 1/21 with my clients 🙏🏻
La tendencia de los smoothie bowls me encanta! Solo hay que poner atención 👀, como en todo de la Nutrición, que ingredientes lleva 🤔. Si lleva jugo de frutas + frutas congeladas y toppings esto probablemente tendrá mucha azúcar. La clave está en evitar agregarle jugos, agregarle no más de 1 taza de fruta 🍓 por persona, agregarle proteína 💪🏼 + grasas saludables 🥜. Les comparto la receta:
Licuar 2 cucharadas yogurt griego @yoplaitmexico sin azúcar (letras verdes) o @chobani o @fage + 1/2 taza frutos rojos congelados + 1 medida proteína en polvo @isopuremx (zero carb). De topping agregué 1 cdta chía • 1 cdta coco rallado • 1/2 plátano. —————————————-
I love the smoothie bowl trend, especially for summer! Just make sure your smoothie bowl is actually healthy before consuming it 🤔. The key is in avoiding adding fruit juice plus frozen fruit, as this will probably have too much sugar. Make sure to add protein and a healthy fat. My recipe: blend until smooth 2 T greek yogurt (plain) like @fage or @chobani + 1 scoop @isopurecompany protein powder + 1/2 C frozen berries . Top with 1/2 banana + 1 t chía seeds + 1 t shredded coconut 🥥 (no sugar added). .
This weeks meal prep was such a success! I’m getting better at it each week. If there is one thing I’ve learned from this it’s this: plan ahead. Take ten or fifteen minutes at least one day prior to prepping to sit down and make sure your meal prep aligns with your goals, you have all ingredients on hand, and be sure you’ve carved out enough time in your day to get it all done. .
🍭Breakfast is a 1/3c (dry weight) steel cut oats with Granny Smith apples cooked with a bit of brown sugar and a lot of cinnamon. So good, about 250 calories, and keeps me feeling full all morning!
🥗Lunch is creamy black bean and chicken taquitos with southwest rice and a side of salsa. This meal was fairly simple to prepare and really cheap too. A bit higher in calories at 450, but I’m still within my limit.
🍝Dinner is honey Cajun chicken bowls on a bed of cauliflower rice for me and whole wheat rotini pasta for my husband. Only 270 calories 😊
🍬Snacks consist of premier protein RTD’s, blueberries, apples, and for Nate avocado too. .
#mealprepsunday is on and POPPIN!! I have an amazing trick to seasoning veggies PRIOR to baking them: ♦️
1. Throw them in a plastic ziplock bag
2. Drizzle with EVOO
3. Season with the yummy stuff of choice
4. Shake the bag, and massage the veggies to coat each piece
5. Throw the veggies on a pan and bake!
♦️ It’s a great way to flavor every piece!! Do you have any FAVORITE meal prep ideas to share?
