Clean Eating Meal Prep and this Week's Meal Plan

A busy couple hours in the kitchen on Sunday means a fridge full of clean eats for the week. If you are not food prepping - you need to start!! Go ahead and start off small - maybe hard boil some eggs, cut up some fruit and veggies, then move on to some yummy side dishes and lean proteins when you get the hang of it:) 

You can find my previous blog post on food prep HERE !

1. 1 dozen hard-boiled eggs
2. cut carrots, cucumbers, grape tomatoes
3. fresh fruit salad
4. washed grapes
5. steamed asparagus
6. Roasted Parmesan Broccoli
7. Chili-Garlic marinated chicken tenders
8. Crockpot Sweet Potatoes (not pictured)
*All 21 Day Fix Approved and ready to be portioned out in my cute little containers

The recipes:

Roasted Parmesan Broccoli

1 large head of broccoli (organic is best)
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
juice of 1 lemon
2 cloves of garlic, crushed
salt and pepper to taste
2-3 tablespoons olive oil

1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
2. Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl, making sure to coat well with olive oil
3. Transfer to large baking sheet and roast 20-25 minutes, stirring every 10 minutes until broccoli is lightly browned and tender

Sooo, yummy and even if you don't like broccoli, please give this recipe a try!

My "fast food" lunch on the go today! Broccoli + chicken

Chili-Garlic Chicken Tenders

2 lbs. chicken tenders
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 tablespoons balsamic
juice of one lime
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste

1. Marinate chicken for a minimum of 30 minutes or up to 12 hours
2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
3. Place chicken on large baking sheet in single layer
4. Bake 20-25 minutes until cooked through. Do NOT overcook!

Crockpot Sweet Potatoes

1. Wash sweet potatoes thoroughly, prick each sweet potato 3-4 times with a fork.
2. Place in slow cooker on LOW for 8-9 hours.

This produces the creamiest, most heavenly baked sweet potato. The best part? If you don't eat it all, use it up to bake some bread, make some soup, or freeze the puree!

Ok, now I know you really come here for the meal plan - so here it is! All meals portion controlled with my 21 Day Fix Containers:)
