Lazy meal prep is still meal prep

Hello all!  It’s been a long week but in the best way possible.  I’ve been inspired and motivated to do things.  I’m trying to do little changes to help me back in my flow.  This week I did do a meal prep but it more of a lazy meal prep.  (I’ll be doing some blogging about lazy meal prep very soon.)

This week I had enough time to do a little meal prep so I did the things that were easy.  I stocked the fridge with the usual fruits: blueberries, strawberries and this week’s new addition, watermelon.  It’s been my goal to get Tiny Tot to eat watermelon and I think yesterday I succeeded.

I’ll keep it short and sweet so you know what was on tap this week. (I know, my picture taking skills need to come up another level.  I’m working on that.)

I had the saddest breakfast tacos this week but the tacos were so good.  I should have been more prepped with veggies bell peppers and onions to jazz up the tacos a bit.

For lunch, I did something easy with the chicken sausage and green beans.  I just sauteed the stuff with some rice vinegar, sesame oil, and hoisin sauce.  I ate this with a side of quinoa and brown rice.

Dinner was simple. We had turkey burgers with sweet potatoes and green beans. Remember when I use to love broccoli? I haven’t been able to eat since I was pregnant. I know the health benefits of broccoli are amazing, but I just can’t stomach it anymore.

Each week I show you the muffins I made not because I think you’re interested but because I’m working on trying new things.  Joining the muffin club for moms club is meant for me to experiment with things I never would. The healthy muffins I’ve been trying lately are just what I need to dip my toe into baking. I don’t bake because I don’t like to keep sweet treats in the house. The healthy muffins are something both Tiny Tot and I can enjoy. Plus, it’s an easy way to get snacks out of the way.

This week’s muffin was a Sweet Potato Muffin. I made a lot of substitutions like whole wheat flour, coconut sugar, coconut oil, and half the sugar.  My muffins are good, but a little dense and I’m sure it has to do with my exclusive use of whole wheat flour.  I’m still learning the tricks of baking.

Did you meal prep this week?  I’m still looking for ideas to share.

Meal prep for the first time

Meal prep for the first time

Okay, so maybe it wasn’t my first time but this was the first time I’ve meal prepped this hard since early pregnancy.  But the good thing is I’m prepared for the week and I don’t have much to worry about. Gosh, I don’t remember it being so much work but I’ve been out of practice.  I still need to get back in the habit.  Plus, I made some more “complicated” meals than normal. I tried to prep most of the meals so I wouldn’t have anything to worry about.  I’m trying to stay on track and be focused on a… View Post

Friday Five: Turkey burgers, headbands, working out & more

Friday Five: Turkey burgers, headbands, working out & more

Happy Friday!  I hope all is well in the world with you.  I felt like I had a really productive morning but then the afternoon seems a little less eventful.  I guess you could say I spent it on the couch sleeping. I thought I should sit down and blog since I’m feeling up to it and I’m well rested. So there’s a blog and some hot chocolate…and here I am. I think it’s a good way to spend a Friday. 1. Today I’m officially 38 weeks which means our baby girl should be making her grand debut soon.  FYI:… View Post

I’m diggin’ travel and watermelon right now.

I’m diggin’ travel and watermelon right now.

I did a lot of working out yesterday, well not really but I tried so new stuff. I’m working really hard on my core strength so I did a little bit of that. I also taught my class yesterday morning and I went to Group Kick with Willie. I must tell you this; it hurts to move my arms. I’ve switched up my workouts this week anyway and I’m hurting but kick just put the icing on the cake. FYI: Willie doesn’t like to take post workout pictures so all he ever gives me is feet. I thought I would… View Post

Fun in Denver before the race

Fun in Denver before the race

I arrived in Denver late morning on Friday and headed to the hotel. There was a lot of things going on in Denver this past weekend so I was excited to be there. We ate lunch and had the worse service ever and then we headed to the expo! Expos are bad for me because I buy too much stuff, but I need running stuff, right? And it was rumored to be cold and let me tell you it wasn’t a rumor! There was a zombie crawl in downtown Denver and people were going all out for this. I wish… View Post
