I love weekly food prepping. Having healthy meals prepped and ready to go in the fridge saves time and money. Plus, it can help you conquer temptation and make good decisions throughout the week. After receiving many positive responses from my post about weekly food prepping and its benefits, I’ve decided to share another one of my weekly meal plans! I’ll continue to post more plans so make sure to check back with The Sweet Seed when you’re craving a little cooking inspiration. Also, here’s where you can find my favorite food prep containers pictured in this post.
So what’s on the menu this week? I was getting a tad tired of chicken, so this plan is all about the seafood. Egg whites, shrimp, and wild-caught cod are the protein staples of this food prep session. Of course, I’ve included some snacks in the mix. I’m just the kind of person who prefers to graze throughout the day, and there’s nothing wrong with that as long as these mini-meals are nutritious too! As for breakfast, I find that hard-boiled eggs are great because they’re easy to fix ahead of time and eat on the go. But, if you’re not a fan of plain hard-boiled eggs, try my easy-to-whip-up protein pancake recipe, which calls for the same ingredients.
Breakfast: About 4 hard-boiled eggs (whites only) and 1/3 cup oatmeal with cinnamon.
Snack: Non-fat Greek yogurt with strawberries.
Lunch: About 4 oz of cod with sweet potato and green beans.
Snack: Brown rice cake with 1 tbsp of almond butter.
Dinner: Salad with about 4 oz shrimp, spinach, sprouts, red pepper, and carrots. For the dressing: 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil and 1 tbsp of balsamic vinegar.
These meals get me through the work week and take a load off my shoulders in the kitchen. If my body craves a little something different here or there, I’ll sometimes switch my dishes around or give into my hankerings as long as they’re in line with my goals. Use these plans as inspiration, but remember to adjust them to your needs and objectives!
