The other day, a friend of mine on Facebook messaged me asking if I had any recipes on the blog that would be good for meal prepping.
You're familiar with meal prepping right?
It's where you do a little bit of cooking at the start of the week and then portion out your meals so that's it's easy to make a healthy choice. You can do this for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, but I prefer to focus on lunch. That's when I will usually find myself reaching for a bag of chips instead of something better for me. I'll end up mindlessly munching on chips, which is obviously less than smart.
So, anyway, I started looking through the blog archives and I realized I don't actually have that many healthy-ish recipes that can be adapted for the meal prepper. I mean, I found a few recipes. My Turkey Taco Stuffed Peppers are a great choice. And my Kielbasa Hash is awesome reheated. Then there're a few soup recipes that might work, but that's about it.
My healthy eating section is apparently lacking.
So, I've set out to beef up my recipes that can be made, portioned, and fit the bill for the person out there who's logging their food and counting their calories.
First up it this super yum chicken. Chicken is a great lean protein choice and, paired with cauliflower that mimics couscous, you have a healthy, filling lunch for four out of five days of the week.
