Food Prep 101
Fail to prepare, then prepare to fail!
When it comes to eating clean a good habit to get into is taking one day to cook in bulk. Having things cooked and chopped ahead of time helps make your daily meal prep a breeze!
I usually reserve Sunday morning for this ritual. The first thing I do is prepare a menu for the week, then write my grocery list and do the shopping.
Items always on my list are:
ground grass fed beef*
When I return back home with all my goodies I immediately start the preparation process:
-hard boil the eggs
-wash and chop the veggies and fruit
-marinate the chicken breast, grill it and chop it
-make salad dressings and salsas to top my salads
-roast the spaghetti squash
-brown the ground turkey
-cook the brown rice or quinoa
I make sure I have plenty of food storage containers on hand.
Doing all this ahead of time makes my mornings really quick and easy. In the morning I can just assemble the meals and be on my merry way!!
