I recently had a friend suggest I write a post about how I do my meal prepping/what I make for breakfasts and lunches, and since I’m late to the food prepping party this week… I got it done just in time for me to try out one of these “What I Ate Wednesday” posts. I’ve never done one of these so hopefully it turns out okay 🙂
Breakfast: Scrambled egg whites with steamed spinach.
Lunch: Boneless skinless chicken tenders cooked in olive oil and pesto, leftover baked spaghetti squash (from this delicious meal), and roasted asparagus.
I usually try to do all my food prepping on Sundays but it doesn’t always happen that way. It saves me time throughout the week and I also don’t have to worry about what I’m going to have to eat – it’s already all planned out for me. The only downside is there’s less variety so it probably looks really boring. It’s easier to just make a larger amount of something and have it multiple days/all week then to cook something different for each meal, so it is what it is. My dinners get varied though, so at least there’s some variety in my life haha.
I’ve also been drinking much less coffee lately, and when I do need some caffeine, this is my go-to:
Right now, my meals are generally pretty simple as I’m still working on this whole eating healthy thing. I’m also still trying to balance everything with the time I have available and it’s not the easiest thing to do. I am happy with the meals though, they are clean & whole (mostly) so that feels good. I am excited to keep improving with my meals though!
Do you food prep? What day do you usually do it?
Do you eat the same thing every day or vary it up?
