Meal Planning

Meal prepping is something I try to do weekly, but it is also something I struggle with. My struggle today? I’m trying to make a list of recipes and a shopping list while I’m hungry! This is NOT a good mix! Every recipe I think of sounds amazing, and looking at what I have, I am going to end up with WAY more food than I need to last me a week.

With that being said, I have definitely decided to try making baked chicken fajitas tomorrow. I can use this in so many different ways through the week, and it’s such an easy recipe!

Along with the fajitas, I believe I will be making some Mexican rice and maybe some salsa. I guess this week’s recipes will all have a Mexican theme to them! (Have you noticed I have a SERIOUS Mexican/spicy food addiction yet?!)

Check back for new recipes tomorrow, and to see how my meal prepping went. Wish me luck!

Meal Planning!

Tomorrow is my day off, so I am spendingΒ  tonight going through recipes and figuring out what I want to make for the rest of the week.

Recently, I’ve begun to notice adverse effects to me eating processed foods. Because of this, I’ve been trying to eat clean. With that being said, I don’t stick to clean eating 100% of the time, but I try to prep my meals for work during the week so I am not tempted to pick up fast food. When it comes to the weekends, I try to make healthy meals for myself and Dan, but being as addicted to food as I am, I tend to let myself cave and cook something unhealthy, or even go out to eat.

While going through recipes, a couple things have caught my eye to add to my “must make” list for tomorrow.

  • Veggie snack bars
  • Chicken burrito bowls
  • Skinny spinach and egg white salad

On top of these recipes, I will be prepping a few different meals to last me through the week. Check back tomorrow to see these recipes, along with pictures, and to see my feelings on how they turned out!
