I thought I would share with you the typical meals I eat daily, and how I prepare them. I want you to see how easy it can be.
First, I start my day with BREAKFAST! It’s an important meal to eat because it kick starts your metabolism and gets your body and brain ready to attack the f*ck outta your day! Never a good idea to skip breakfast. Ever.
My breakfast consists of oatmeal and egg whites. But I’m lazy AF. So I mix 1 cup of egg whites and a lil bit of water in a bowl as the base for my oatmeal. I heat it up for a minute solo, then take it out of the microwave and add 1/2 cup of old fashioned oatmeal to the bowl. I place it back in the microwave for another 2 minutes and BAM! Done.
The consistency will be thicker due to adding the egg whites to the mix. But that’s how I like it. So I chop it up with a spoon, then add the above yums to make it taste delicious. (Not pictured because I ran out – CINNAMON)
So here is a simple breakdown:
1 cup of egg whites in a bowl mixed with a 1/3 cup of water
1/2 cup of Old Fashioned Oatmeal
3-4 tbs of splenda
As much cinnamon as you like
1/2 tbs unsweetened cocoa
splash of coffee
MIX THAT SHIT TOGETHER AND EAT!
Now, for the rest of the day I basically eat every 3 hours. So in total I have about 5 meals a day. It keeps my metabolism working and me satisfied and not starving. If I hold off on eating for more than 4 hours I tend to make poor food decisions, cookies get involved and it’s just not pretty.
First I’ll walk you thru how I COOK the meals I plan to eat through out the week.
Start by getting you some fresh chicken breasts from the store. Using a separate cutting board for raw meat only, cut the fat off the breasts and place into a cooking sheet. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
Cook the chicken for about 30 minutes. While the chicken is cooking, go ahead and start cooking your rice. I hate brown rice, so I like to use Jasmine Rice. You can easily have the chicken and rice cooking at the same time. The rice is on the stove top and chicken in the oven. So it saves time.
The rice will be done in about 15 minutes total. Remove from heat and wait for it to cool. Once cooled, I like to put mine in a large ziplock bag with a measuring cup. That way all I have to do is grab the whole damn thing from the fridge and quickly plop exactly the amount I know i need (1/4cup) into my meals.
By now your chicken should almost be done. I like to cut my chicken into bite size pieces before weighing it out. So when it comes time to eat I don’t have to worry about cutting it up when I’m hungry. (Remember I told you – I’m lazy AF)
I also don’t like to prep my meals into plastic containers because, again, I’m too lazy to have to wash all that shit. So I use zip-lock baggies. But, by all means, if it makes you feel like a better member of society to use Tupperware, USE IT! Whatever it takes for you to get this shit down and into a good habit – just do it!
Once your chicken is done cooking and cooling, time to cut!
Once you have all the breast cut into small pieces, grab your scale and zip-lock baggies or containers and weigh out your protein portions.
Once all your chicken has been cooked, weighed and prepped into baggies or containers, you can add your rice.
I also like to add veggies to my meals, but again, lazy, so I use frozen veggies like this.
I keep a 1 cup measuring spoon inside the bag so when its time to prep/eat I can quickly measure it out and heat it all up!
Here is what my fridge ends up looking like after my meal prep. Basically just a shit ton of baggies of chicken, rice and some extra spinach and brussel sprouts for when I want a lil switch up in my veggie routine.
You’ll notice my gallon jug of water. I am NEVER without my jug. I drink over 1 gallon a day and its so damn good for you. I HIGHLY suggest you get into the habit of drinking a LOT of water daily. Your body will thank you.
When it’s time to heat up my food, I use some of the below seasonings to make it taste delicious. By switching up which things I use on my meals, it makes them more enjoyable to eat.
The top seasonings I have become addicted to is Turmeric, (so many health benefits! – check it out Here) and Flavor God Seasoning.
So, that’s it! Pretty simple right? I would love to hear from you! Let me know if you try this method and what you think about the process, seasonings etc!
