Food Prep Sunday!

Wow! We've had a very exciting day around here.  I woke up and went for a nice run even despite the lost hour of sleep (No excuses, kids!)  Then it was church and onto Charlie's first ever concert. The Laurie Berkner Band was a hit and he thoroughly enjoyed himself!

After the concert we headed home for a quick regroup and then we were off to the bar to watch the Big 10 Basketball Championship.  We bleed Green and are very excited about the outcome!! Go State!
When eating out, this is how I do it!! Yes, I did indulge in a nice, frosty beer but when it came to dinner this is what I had:  Rice, a chicken wrap/no cheese with spicy ranch on the side and a pitcher of water.  The server ended up giving me the pitcher because I kept asking for water refills! HA!


I ended up splitting the prep between Saturday and Sunday.  I prepped all of my fruits and veggies last night while I was in the kitchen making dinner for my family.  I washed grapes and blueberries, cooked and sliced 2 sweet potatotes, peeled and sliced 2 cucumbers, cut up some celery, steamed carrots, bagged Almond Thins and hard-boiled eggs.

All that I needed to prep this morning was Clean Eating Simple Sunflower Seed Granola, Salsa Chicken, Sweet and Savory Turkey Salad and Buffalo Chicken Lasagna.  (I'll share recipes for those later!)

Total prep time was 2 hours from start to clean dishes. 

Cucumbers, blueberries, sweet potatoes, carrots, hard boiled eggs, grapes, celery, strawberries
Bagged Almond Thins
6x Savory and Sweet Turkey Salad (red cabbage, celery, onion, raisins, ground turkey with a yummy lemon juice, honey, mustard, red wine vinegar dressing. WIN!)
Salsa Chicken and Clean Eating Sunflower Seed Granola
8x Buffalo Chicken Lasagna (wing sauce in lasagna! YES!)
Shakeology + Magic Bullet.  We got another Magic Bullet so this one can travel to work with me!
(Not pictured are a chopped pineapple and 2 grilled chicken breasts. We did those tonight!)

This prepping stuff is really working for us and I urge you to try it too.  Spending 2 hours in your kitchen each weekend ensures you will have nutritious things to eat all week long.

If you have questions, please leave them in the comments!

Now, who's ready to rock out another great week? Here in Michigan we are going to have record temps and I can't wait for the sunny weather and added daylight!  Enjoy!
