I didn't make any New Year resolutions, just promised myself to keep working on getter better in all facets of life. So here's to a healthier, more productive, more successful lifestyle in 2017. So far, it's working pretty well. 6 lbs down and I'm not stopping anytime soon. #mealprep#weightloss
I'm over the moon excited about my Vitamix! I just used it to blend and cook a new sauce all at once! So easy! Just gathered the ingredients, set is on its pre-programmed button and voila! #vitamix#foodie#mealprep#cleaneating#eatclean
Bear with me here - this is a busy pic!! But I get asked all the time how I do my food prep and how long it takes, so I wanted to give a good representation of what I eat and how I prep. This took UNDER ONE HOUR and will feed me for the week, at 5 meals a day. I have multiple items cooking at once, usually 5 at a time between the oven, stovetop, grill, crockpot. Mind you, I've been bulk prepping for years and can do a full prep - all fresh meats, fresh veggies, fresh starches, AND clean up in under 2 hours. (And you guys thought I was never focused or efficient. 😉) The more you do it, the better/faster you get. I cannot imagine NOT bulk prepping. I'd lose my mind and eat only protein bars. . . This week's food: . Starches - rice, sweet potatoes, black beans (if needed later in the week), bananas (sometimes I call them a starch other times I count them as fruit). . Proteins - turkey burgers, turkey spaghetti sauce w a little turkey sausage added, crockpot chicken, Greek yogurt, Shakeology . Veggies - fresh asparagus, bell peppers/onions (in the crock), raw spinach (I add it to everything), carrots, cucumbers, tomatoes, frozen grilled veggies and frozen mixed veggies . Fruit - frozen berries or pineapple for shakes and with my yogurt, apples . Fats - coconut oil, almonds, avocados, natural peanut butter, hummus (this is really more of a dressing or a dip for me but we'll toss it in with fats for the average person). . I usually eat standing up at work so I need meals that fit in one container and can be eaten on the fly: salads, 'bowls' of whatever all mixed up and microwaved, shakes, yogurt w fruit/nuts/granola, etc. I try to eat dinner off a plate while sitting down but sometimes that doesn't happen. 😂 . Hope this helps those of you who struggle with prep ideas or think bulk prep is impossible or takes too long. It's absolutely critical for me and makes the week SO much easier. . . . #bulkprep#mealprep#mealprepsunday#shortcuts#beprepared#ieatstandingup#healthyeats#healthylifestyle#noexcuses#5mealsaday#foodisfuel#fitspo#fitstagram#fitfam#foodie#sanity
Meal prepping for the win! This week I'm making ground turkey and broccoli for lunch and salmon, green beans and squash for dinner. For my husband I'm making turkey sausage for breakfast, ground beef and brown rice for lunch and salmon, potatoes and green beans for dinner. Today we went to look at a house and the agent recognized me from Instagram. It was a little awkward, I wondered if I lived up to her expectations. Anyway, I know I shouldn't worry about that. #healthyfood#mealprep#eatclean#weightloss#weightlossjourney#diabetes#arthritis#ᴛʜᴏᴜɢʜᴛsbecomethings

Having a bulging disc absolutely sucks. My head is in such a bad place because I can barely walk let alone go to the gym. Painkillers are getting me through and my awesome physio 💪🏻 fingers crossed I'll be back soon. P.S. How cute is this filter?!
Attempting to eat real food this week! Still soft, and cut into very small pieces. But it's not soup! #winning This was tonight's dinner that will also be tomorrow's lunch. Chicken with zucchini and mushrooms - simple and delicious! Plus, Tanner cooked = even better! ❤️💚💚 #mealprep#eatlikeyouloveyourself#cleaneating
Sunday is meal prep day for me. If I don't prep for the week, I find myself struggling to stay on track. So I set aside some time every Sunday to prepare my meals. Today I prepared veggie stir fry, baked chicken, protein waffles, and cut up fruit. Easy Peasy! . . #mealprepiskey
His and Hers food prep done for the busy work week... Now time for football with my little family! Hope you're all having a great Sunday (and staying safe and dry to my So Cal friends). #foodprep , #preparationiskey
Whole30, Day 18: Steak salad w/basil TAHINI dressing + rainbow carrot and purple sweet potato fries 🍟 🍠🌱🌿🍅👌🏽 This was my first time using tahini, ever, and I'm definitely a fan! Lemon basil tahini dressing recipe👇🏼👇🏼 1/4 C Tahini paste (organic, from TJs) 1/8 c Red wine vinegar 1/4 c Olive oil 1/8 Water Juice of one lemon cayenne pepper Sprinkle of Dried cilantro 1/4 c fresh Basil 3 cloves garlic, minced Inch of ginger root, minced Sea salt & pepper 🔸blend all ingredients, pulse basil in at the end PS- doubles as a dank fry-dipping sauce! PPS- if you're really into getting that crispy fry perfection, once you slice the potato up into fries, soak them in cold water for 30 mins-2 hours, then drain and toss with whatever you fancy. 😛 #wholefoodsplantbased#tastetherainbow#foodporn#whole30
