We are so ready for this week! I bought all of the necessary groceries on Saturday, and aside from dicing the peppers last night, everything else was done today in a couple of hours! Usually we would do meal prepping on a Sunday but we were gone from the house most of the day- so I wanted do do an easy meal prep for one week of food today.
Easy Meal Prep For One Week
This will be enough for a week of lunch, snacks, dinner depending on how much you eat. Some of this will be for Steven too. I’ll be supplementing this with breakfast, a shake and sometimes a different supper option. The beauty is that everything is there for you to grab in two seconds if you need to. I know in the mornings there is NO time to make a lunch if I will be gone all day.
What Will I Need?
- 4-5 Chicken Breasts
- 4 Natural, Lean Chicken Sausages
- 3 Bell Peppers
- 1 Package of Pre-Trimmed Green Beans (or about a pound if not packaged)
- 2 Small/Medium Sweet Potatoes
- 6 Eggs
- 1 Cup Dry Brown Rice
- 1 Package of Greens
- 1 Small Package of Alfalfa Sprouts
- Feta Cheese
- Plain, Unsweetened Greek Yogurt
- A crap-ton of tupperware or storage dishes
What Will This Make?
- Chicken tenders/sweet potatoes/peppers
- Sausage/brown rice/green beans
- Boiled Eggs
- Yogurt + Granola
- Steamed Broccoli (I add into scrambled eggs sometimes and Hunter actually loves it plain).
And then on the side for sweet tooth purposes I made a few Chocolate Chip & Raisin Protein Cookie Dough balls!
How Do I Prep It?
Preheat the oven to 400.
It’s easiest if you wash and dice your vegetables first. If you can, buying any veggies already cleaned and diced are quickest, obviously. With the sweet potatoes you can actually leave the skin on!
Cook your brown rice according to directions and put the eggs on to boil.
While those are cooking- slice your sausage and chicken breast.
When your rice and eggs are finished, add some water into a pan and turn your beans on to steam. Add a bit of coconut oil into a skillet and pan fry the sausages. In another skillet add a bit of oil or spray oil, tbsp of water and your peppers. I added salt, pepper and dry ranch seasoning.
While these are cooking, add tinfoil to two cookie sheets or glass casserole dishes. Add oil or spray oil to your pans and then add sweet potatoes in one and chicken in the other. Add whichever spices you like best (for the chicken I added a Clubhouse smoky bacon combo.
Put the chicken and sweet potatoes in the oven. These took about 35-40 minutes, taken out a few times to toss around.
Into your salad tupperware dishes add the greens, and on top spread some sprouts and feta.
Once all the food is done, just portion out according to your plan or goals, and that’s it! Easy meal prep for one week. It made a bit of extra too I just put into other containers in the fridge. I love these food prep containers from Amazon.
Have a great week 🙂
