Meal Prep Oct 30th 2016

Last week’s meals turned out great! The taco bowl was perfect for lunch and I almost made it again today. At the last minute I decided to switch it up and do a this on my chipotle meatballs instead.

The taco bowl worked well for me because it was filling, delicious, a good source of everything I need at the moment and worked well around my current food aversions. I’ll make that recipe again soon in the coming weeks.

Instead of making my meatballs into balls or in a muffin tin I did them as a shallow meat loaf in a baking dish. I doubled the recipe, used lean ground chicken and added celery, carrot, zucchini, onion and baby kale and then packed it into the casserole dish and topped it with a mix of BBQ, tomato sauce with a tad of maple syrup. Cooked it at 350 for about 40min and that’s it. I made a pot of brown rice to go with it. That will be our lunches most days this week. Easy and tasty. Macros are simple to figure out too.

I also made a batch of my copy cat Starbucks Chocolate and Cinnamon (Protein) loaf but in muffin format. Just cook them less – about 25 min. I subbed coconut sugar for the xylitol, goat yogurt for the greek yogurt and used 3 whole eggs instead of egg white + eggs. I also used plant based protein powder.

The other thing I did was cook up some turkey bacon for breakfast this morning. I made extra for the coming week so I just have to heat a few seconds and eat. I’m trying to find protein sources that don’t currently make me gag in the morning and a breakfast combo of turkey bacon, collagen peptides and peanut butter and toast seemed to work and gave me 25g of protein which is solid.

I had a few other recipe in mind but my legs can’t hold me up any more and I need a rest! I did a load of work around the house today and a workout so this preggie lady is pooped 😉

A couple of you lovely beauties called me out on not posting recipe when I say I will, I know, it’s terrible! Sorry! I have a few to get up and I haven’t done it. I’m bad for writing down what I’ve done and I just create things on the fly and keep forgetting to commit them to paper – or computer. That plus the software I have for typing them out on this site is cumbersome. I’ll get to it though. Thanks for reminding me 🙂
