Anyone ever consider meal prep?
« on: October 26, 2018, 11:26:59 AM »
I made a goal this year to lose weight, get back in the gym and change my nutrition. I successfully lost 65 lbs over the year cutting out shit food, mostly processed stuff and the hardest was cutting back on the alcohol. So, I looked into meal prepping. I figured this would be a way to ensure I had a healthy meal every day and so far for the year it has worked extremely well. Nothing fancy just basic foods and ingredients. The rest of the day Iím just mindful of what I eat. Still have pizza, ribs, and the occasional Steak Ďn Shake triple burger but not everyday and donít go crazy with it.
Anyways, Iíd thought Iíd share what I made for my lunch dinners this week. Itís grilled chicken breast with mashed potatoes, brown rice, black beans and broccoli. The ingredients change every few weeks so I donít get burned out but this is basically what Iíve been doing. Normally use sweet potatoes but weíre having russets tonight so may as well use that.

Take care guys.

I usually grill enough at night to have leftovers for lunch. I hardly ever eat fast food.

Are those your lunches for a tire week?  Thatís a great way to do it. I donít always have access to a microwave. I may have to chuck the go anywhere gas in the truck to warm up leftovers.

Congrats on the weight loss and the moderation. Itís not easy.

Thanks man. Yes, those are for the whole work week. Depending on the shift depends on what Iíve been making but I just pop them in the microwave (if needed) and warm them up.

Awesome prep work, Tami plans most meals and enough leftovers for lunches for both of us. We try to maintain a low carb lifestyle for weight loss/control and health as well. Hats off for the weight loss and the planning. You must plan well if you want to eat healthy.

Travis! Food for thought man! Great idea on the week long prep. I need to lose a bunch of pounds. Giving up the rum will be tough though. Glad to hear your success.

Congrats @Travis!  Making a simple (not necessarily easy) change like that and seeing actual results is something to be really proud of!
Its amazing how quickly one weber kettle turns into more than a dozen!  Always open to grabbing something interesting so let me know what you've got!

Thanks guys. Here another one that doesnít require a re-heat of any kind. Pasta noodles, diced cucumber and tomato, pre cooked shrimp (grilled would be better, just done for ease) and topped with green onion and Italian dressing drizzled over. Literally takes like 20 minutes to make.

Congrats on the weight loss Travis. I need to do the same. The meals look great. I just bought bigger pants today, only one pair because I plan on this being temporary.

Travis, I I never realized that! Dude, youíre a rail the last time I saw you. Thatís grate!

My wife and I subscribe to EMeals.com and choose the heart healthy menu. For about five bucks a month you get a menu, recipes, and a shopping list. We love it and it takes the thought out of ďwhatís for dinnerĒ. Weíve done this for about five years and we love it! (This is not a commercial and I have no financial stake in this, we simply love this convenience)
