Ideas, tips and testimonials from @tatted_happon. A perfect example of how meal prep can save you time and money, and allow you to reach your goals.
- Ground Turkey cooked with bell peppers, onions, and mushrooms seasoned with seasoning; one-two cooked eggs, and fruits on high-carb days.
- Baked Salmon 4oz and Roasted Chicken 5oz. On the sides, I steam broccolis and asparagus.
- Fat free Greek yogurt with fruits (I'll add a touch of Honey on my high-carb days)
- Baby tomatoes, celery sticks with peanut butter, bell pepper slices, hard boiled eggs, carrots, mixed nuts, or beef jerky.
Here's more from the the creator @tatted_happon:
"I've been doing MealPreps for more than a year for the following reasons:
* Saves Time
* Saves Money
* Keeps Me Healthy
I'm a single mom with a full time job and sometimes I just don't have that time to wonder what I'll make for breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner on a daily. Also, by having all my meals prepped ahead of time, I don't have to buy any food at work or on my way home and spend that extra money. So it's worked really well for me and my lifestyle. Also it helps me with staying on track with living a healthy life. I can't go to they gym every single day because of my mommy duties, but with meal prepping, I can maintain my weight and stay fit.
Typical MealPrep includes Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner with two snacks.
Tip #1: you can bake salmon and chicken at the same time for the same amount of time to save time. I use FlavorGod LemonGarlic on my salmon and Everything Seasoning on my chicken.
Tip #2: I steam my veggies in the microwave for 5 min for each veggie
Snack #2: this is usually the time I drive home and get stuck in traffic. So I do lots of finger foods such as Baby tomatoes, celery sticks with peanut butter, bell pepper slices, hard boiled eggs, carrots, mixed nuts, or beef jerky. This week, I decided to do baby tomatoes.
Dinner: Kale salad or any green salad with left over protein I didn't use for lunch.
If I workout after work, I'd do a protein bar before workout and a protein shake after. This week, I'll be making BlackForrest Protein Shakes using a scoop of Chocolate protein powder, 12 pitted cherries, 1cup almond milk, and 1/2 cup fat free yogurt. Pulse them in a processor with a handful of ice cubes.
Hope this helps with anyone who is thinking of embarking on a fitness journey. I have been on my journey and have lost about 20lbs. I've maintained my weight for the last 4 months. It's been an awesome journey and thank you for giving me the opportunity to share it with your followers..."
