Pre Thanksgiving Meal Prep
With a short week before Thanksgiving, I wanted to make sure I eat good, healthy food before Thursday came. So, I spent just about 2 hours in the kitchen meal prepping a bunch of food for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday.
The Prep List Looks Like This:
4 Boca Veggie Burgers (2 Bowls)
4 Cups Brown Rice (2 Bowls)
1 Large Sweet Potato
2 Cups Broccoli
2 Cups Chopped Asparagus
3 Aldi’s Brand Chopped Black Bean Burgers w/ 1 Cup Black Beans & 1 Cup Spinach (Split into 2 Bowls)
1 Cups of Beyond Meat Chicken Strips w/ 2 Cups Spinach
1 Spaghetti Squash (Split into 3 Bowls)
9 Gardein Branded “Meat” Balls in Tomato Basil Sauce (3 for each of the squash bowls)
1 Container of Plain Greek Yogurt & Blueberries.
3 jars of Overnight Oats:
2x 3/4 cups of Oatmeal. 1/4 cup Blueberries. 1/3 cup Protein Mix. 1/3 banana. 1 tbsp Chia Seeds. 3/4 cups Almond Milk. 1 tbsp Maple Syrup.
1x 3/4 cups of Oatmeal. 1/3 cup Protein Mix. 1 tbsp Chia Seeds. 2 tbsp Powdered Chocolate Peanut Butter. 3/4 cups Almond Milk. 1 tbsp Maple Syrup.
I’ll also have a protein shake after every workout.
And that’s about it! All full vegetarian meals. Lots of veggies mixed in. Enough carbs & protein to push and recovery from my workouts. All I have to do is heat them up and I’m good!
Doesn’t have to be fancy. Or super time consuming. You have to be willing to block out a little time once, in order to have healthy options for yourself.
