Meal prep truly is not that hard. Give yourself a few hours on Sunday and you can have breakfast and lunch meals for the week. The trick is being organized and prepared. First off, you need some containers. These can be meal prep containers you can order from Amazon, or you can use containers from Walmart. Either works perfectly fine.
This week, I decided for breakfasts I would make scrambled eggs, chicken sausage, and baby potatoes. For lunches, chicken thighs, and roasted vegetables. I really like to keep it simple.
My shopping list from Walmart consisted of the following:
3 – packages of chicken thighs – boneless and skinless – I actually would be fine if they had skin on them. I prefer the thighs because they have more flavor than breasts.
2 – packages of chicken sausage, one regular and one spicy
1 bag each of broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, baby potatoes and baby carrots
1 package blueberries
1 package raspberries
I already had eggs, but if not, a dozen eggs
I started with roasting the potatoes and carrots. I put them in a bowl and added MCT oil, smoked sea salt, salt and pepper and then roasted at 425 for about 45 minutes
Up next were the broccoli, cauliflower and green beans. Same as above.
I then made the chicken thighs. I also cooked these at 425 for approximately 45 minutes. I used seasoned salt, salt and pepper. You could easily grill these as well.
Once these were all done. I just put together in the containers. I put the blueberries and raspberries in separate baggies, so I could remove easily when I warmed up the meals.
Next up, I cooked the chicken sausage and then scrambled the eggs. I then put these in with the baby potatoes. Sometimes I will add a container of guacamole to add some good fat to the meals.
That is it!! It is not hard at all and is very cost efficient.
