//Food Prep Sunday//

IMG_6352Sundays are my favorite day for many reasons– church, no work, staying home with the kiddos and FOOD PREP for the week ahead!  I’ve learned in my years of Beachbody that prepping is KEY!! I always thought it would take me forever to do but it honestly takes an hour or less to put everything together.

I usually order my groceries to pick up or be delivered on Friday after school so I always try to be prepared as to what I need by Thursday.  My weeks are pretty consistent as far as what I eat, especially during the school week.  Once I get my groceries, I store them until Sunday and get them out, cut them up and portion them out!! So nice to have to just grab and go!

Some of my go to breakfasts: oatmeal, egg white muffins, hard boiled eggs, fruit, healthy french toast, Greek yogurt with Fiber One cereal, and homemade Quest bars.

Some favorite snacks would be: Shakeology bars, fruit, almonds, bananas, crockpot apples, hummus and rice cakes.

Chocolate is by far my favorite!

As far as lunch it almost always consists of a chocolate shake and some kind of fruit. I make my shake with 1/2 water, 1/2 cashew milk, ice, scoop of Shakeology and 1/4 of a banana.  

Dinners can sometimes be tough because I’m also trying to cook for a 7 year old, 4 year old and 1 1/2 year old.  I try to make thing  all will eat but it doesn’t always happen!  Some of our go to’s are Mexican Crockpot Chicken (great for leftovers– tacos and salads), turkey meatballs, turkey meatloaf, shrimp and salmon.  Vegetables consist of sweet potatoes, zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash, mixed medley of cauliflower and broccoli and cauliflower rice.  Some pictures below of some of our favorites… I will post more recipes this week too! I don’t have tons of time like most moms so my recipes are quick and easy!!
