Breakfast: steak strips, sweet potato fries, guac, and jalapeno peppers (All WLC compliant, by the way).
The best part about this was the prep time took next to nothing. Sure, it took some time to cook the sweet potatoes but we have done exceptionally well at meal planning and prepping this week.
I cooked the majority of the meat on Sunday. Last night I cut up the sweet potatoes and got the pan ready to cook. This morning most of the hard work had already been done, so it took a lot less time.
Over the weekend I had written out a meal plan and went shopping based on that. When you have a 6 year old, a 3 year old, a job, etc. life gets hectic. This planning and prepping might seem over the top, but this week we have done a great job at it and I am amazed at how much stress this relieves.
Last night when I got home and my wife was at the gym, I didn’t have to stare into the fridge and wonder what to cook. I just looked at our meal plan and did it. I knew we had the ingredients, some of which had already been prepared. That peace of mind has been helpful for us but most importantly, allowed us to stay focused and not deviate from eating clean.
