Sunday Meal Prep

Another Sunday afternoon spent in the kitchen. I just asked my husband what we used to eat for lunches before I started this bulk cooking stuff. “Sandwiches and granola bars” he said.

Hmmmm. This is better.

This week’s meal plan is as follows:

Pre work out/ post workout:
1/2 protein shake and 1/2 a banana (both before and after workout)

Scrambled egg whites + 1 whole egg
Sautéed peppers and onions
2 slices Ezekiel toast
1 tbsp butter

2nd Breakfast:
Green Smoothie (lots of spinach, handful frozen mango, 1/2 frozen peeled banana, almond milk blended until smooth)

1/2 chicken breast sautéed with onions, splash of coconut milk, cinnamon, cumin and chili
Roasted zucchini or roasted asparagus
Brown basmati rice


Afternoon snack:
Giant chicken meatball (I mixed extra lean ground chicken with some sodium free mexican-y seasoning, some egg whites to stick it all together (only because it was easier to get at the carton of whites than the carton of eggs in the fridge), and a couple of handfuls of large flake oatmeal, formed into balls and baked in corningware at 400 for 30 mins). If you are the recipe using type, try this and change-up the spices if you want a different feel taste.


I will eat the meatball with cucumber with hummus, because my garden is producing them like woah.


Will vary by day but includes one of the following proteins: chicken, bison, wild boar and tuna steaks. And eggs if I’m tired and/or lazy. The meat will be paired with either salads, chopped salads (cucumber salad for sure haha) and a carb (sweet potatoes, brown rice, kamut pasta, even Ezekiel toast if I don’t feel like boiling for rice/pasta).


Night snack if hungry (usually I am lately):
Cottage cheese, stevia and 1 tbsp peanut butter.

For those of you that are interested, this works out to the range of 1800 calories a day (1800 ish as it varies based on dinners) has 192 grams of protein, 178 grams of carbohydrates, 28 grams of fat and 29 grams of sugar. Interestingly enough, half my sugar intake for the day comes from mango, and the other half from the banana

What is on your menu this week?



I haven’t been blogging because I was on vacation…


I packed workout gear, but it just didn’t happen.


The beach happened.


Some hiking happened.


A lot of sight seeing happened.



And then some more.



And amongst all of that a lot of eating happened. I always managed a healthy breakfast and lots of water, but beyond that, well… Let’s just say that I was relaxed.

These guys….


…turned into these guys…


And were consumed with abandon.

So was this.

(so good!!)

And several rounds of these…


And this… Which is probably the most buttery thing I’ve ever eaten.


And if you look closer my latte looks like this

(does this look like what I think it looks like? Because I think the milk frother dude was trying to tell me something)

Anyway, it was a week of being easy on myself. Taking time to stop and smell the roses seaweed salt air. But now I’m back, and it’s time to get serious once again.

The first thing I did when I got home was went to the garden and pulled a ton of fresh lettuce to juice. I added it with some questionable celery from the fridge, two lonely apples, and a lemon. Voila instant nutrients and detox juice all in one.


Tomorrow I’m back to workouts and meal planning and feeling re-invigorated after some well needed vacation.
