Food Prep: Save Time and Calories


When preparing for each week, do you include workouts and meals on your list of things to plan? On Sunday evenings, we prepare meals, mainly lunches (seen here), for most or all days of the week. This is important to us because it keeps us accountable and unlikely to make unhealthy choices. The couple of hours it takes to prepare meals saves much more time throughout the week, and will keep you from running to the vending machines at work! You can use the following list of foods below to try your hand at healthy food prep! 

-Lean meats & fish (chicken breast, ground turkey, salmon, tilapia, tuna, etc).
-Complex carbs (sweet potatoes, brown rice, quinoa, etc). 
-Lots of water! 

(In the photo: Tilapia/sweet potatoes/green beans; Chicken salads (chicken not pictured), and fruit. This is enough food to cover lunch Mon-Wed. You can stick to the script or try switching things up for Thurs & Fri)
