HOW TO STAY

grabbing whatever because I didn't plan on my meals. But there is a process to make it a little easier to accomplish. 

 

 

1. CLEAN YOUR FRIDGE + MAKE YOUR LIST! There are a few things I would do before going to the store to stock up. Most importantly, make sure you have your grocery list printed out and ready to go. I never leave home without a good grocery list and the meals I plan on making. It makes my life so much easier by taking the guessing out of it. Secondly, start out with a clean   workspace. It feels great buying the fresh foods you’ll be eating, but it’s no fun it you just throw it all in the fridge and they get buried behind all the old stuff. Take time to clean out your refrigerator so it makes it easy to organize once you clean and    chop all your fruits   and    veggies.

2. CLEAN AND CHOP THOSE FRUITS + VEGGIES! 

Clean + chop all your fruits and veggies. When we get hungry, we don’t want to take the time to make something, so we usually grab whatever is easiest – most of the time, it’s unhealthy. Before putting your groceries away, clean and cut your fruits + veggies and place them in containers. When you get hungry, at least you have something healthy that’s ready to eat.

3. OVERNIGHT OATS

Grab and go options for busy mornings are a must! My go-to breakfast is Overnight Blueberry Oats. These are so delicious and super easy to make. It’s easy to grab whether you’re staying home or on the go. Make them in mason jars the night before. Make two at a time! They keep in the fridge for up to two day.  Find your favorite recipe in the Breakfast section of this Plan!

3. QUICK AND EASY

I love making meals in my Instant Pot or Crock Pot on Sundays. These are not only easy, but they’re also tasty and great for the entire family! Once I’m done making the meals, I store them in separate containers so I can either eat them for lunches or have them for dinner the next day.

5. TRAY DINNERS FOR THE WIN!

 

Another meal I love making are tray dinners. Meal prepping is amazing but not if you still need to cook a separate meal for the entire family. Tray dinners are great because you just throw everything on a tray and bake it! It’s that easy! These are also great to throw into containers and save for lunches or dinners for the week.

 

 

 

6. MAKE IT EASY ON YOURSELF

Stick with what you know – at least for some meals. Making new dishes can seem like they take forever and can meal prepping more difficult than it Aneeds to be. At least for a week or two, I would recommend making at least two dishes you already know how to make, like Overnight Oats and Yogurt Parfait. These are quick and easy and will allow you more time to prep the other meals you want to try.

7. STAY HYDRATED

Grab your water bottle! Water is so important. There are so many benefits of drinking water – it keeps you hydrated, curbs hunger, gives you glowing skin, makes hair + nails stronger and you NEED it! I never go anywhere without my water bottle. Drink half your body weight in ounces a day.

 eal prepping doesn't have to be boring! I'm not going to lie... it does take time and the best time to do it is on a Sunday when you're getting ready to start a new week. But what I love most about it is that it gives me a sense of peace and creation. I pop on my headphones and listen to either Pandora or my favorite Podcast, Radio Rental. I get to be in control of what I eat for the week, not my emotions or  my laziness of just

I’m an animal loving fitness addict with my roots in East Tennessee and a little bit of my heart in Southern California. I’m a food lover addicted to sauces and condiments and cannot help but take in any animal I see on the streets. My recent venture has taken me into fitness apparel where I can design the apparel and fit I love most and share it with you.
