I am trying to get back into my meal prep. Even with working from home now I need to know that I have meals prepared and ready to grab so I don’t mindlessly eat without thinking.
In addition to this yummy Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal…
I also made lunches and prepped some sdes for the week.
For lunches I did an italian chicken and butternut squash noodles. It smelled so good.
I took 2 chicken breasts and diced them. I put them in a large skillet with chopped celery, onion and bell peppers and sauted it until the chicken was browned. Then I added a pound of sliced mushrooms, a clove of minced garlic, dried Italian seasoning, salt, pepper and turmeric. I cooked it until the veggies were just beginning to soften. Then I added 1 package of butternut squash noodles and 1 can of crushed tomatos. I dropped the heat to low, and put the lid on and let it simmer for about 10 minutes. So yummy. And zero points.
I also made a Greek yogurt marinade for grilled chicken tonight (basically 1/3c nonfat greek yogurt, 2 tsp olive oil, 2 tablespoons dried oregano, choppd garlic, lemon juice, and salt and pepper). I poured half in a large ziplock bag with 2 chicken breast and put the rest in the fridge in a bowl. I will grill those chicken breasts tonight and use the extra marinade to baste it while it cooks.
I roasted an acorn squash with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spray, some monk fruit sweetener, and cinnamon. I roasted it in the oven at 400 for 45 minutes.
Then I peeled it and mashed it. We will have that as a side this week. Zero points.
I made a big batch of tzatziki to snack on with veggies this week. Zero points.
I also made a batch of homemade guac bit forgot a picture. 2 ripe avocados, a quarter of an onion minced, 3 cloves of garlic minced, salt and the juice of a lime.
And finally I boiled cabbage and onion to have as a side this week. I boil mine with Goya ham seasoning, an onion, a splash of liquid smoke, salt and pepper.
What did you prep for the week?
