Meal Prep

Β Many have messaged me through the blog asking what some of my go-to meals are and how I make it work with a busy life style. So I thought I'd share with you what prepping for a crazy week of studying and exams looks like! πŸ™ŒπŸπŸ‹πŸŒπŸ΄πŸ“šπŸ“–πŸ˜‹ βœ… My favorite pasta - Zucchini noodle spaghetti + falafel meat balls and nutritional yeast as my parmesan cheese replacement

βœ…Salads: mixed greens + heirloom tomatoes + red onion + avocado + sprouts + pecans and lemon garlic vinaigrette

βœ…Quinoa Kale Butternut Squash + garlic and Himilayan salt

βœ…My FAVORITE protein bar.. Ever: @squarebars for post workout @barmethodkc. It's made with all organic and plant based ingredients and has the glycemic index of an apple. A good thing to have handy! Otherwise I bring raw cashews or a protein + greens smoothie from home.

βœ…Suja organic mighty greens cold pressed juice! (️Costco find for $6.99 - that's a steal) Making my own juice is the ideal option, but this is second best!

βœ…Kombucha - guava, raspberry lemon, and pineapple

I use to think meal prepping was a dreaded 3-4 hour task.. Until I discovered I can get all of this done in LESS than 45 minutes. Crazy, right? I had a slight epiphany when I discovered how simple it can be. It makes my busy days a lot more productive and a LOT healthier when I can "grab and go" these nutrient dense instead of snacking all day. Im still a beginner in the meal prep game but it always feels good to know i have a fridge full of healthy food ready for the week!

Aside from meal prep, this might me my favorite thing Ive ever made.. Paleo and vegan pizzas made extremely simple. (Jeremys:

Say hello to my favorite pizza.. Ever. It isn't raw, but it's 100% vegan, soy free, gluten free, dairy free (you know the works) and we make them pretty much every Sunday.. I look forward to it all week.

We use Ezekiel sprouted organic tortilla shells, Tessame's barbeque sauce (amazingly clean ingredients and tastes just like bbq), sprouted chickpeas, red onion, green pepper, some grated sweet potato, Himilayan salt, basil, and pepper - baked at 350 for 25 minutes!

Next is this go-to superfood+protein smoothie. Basically all of the ingredients above blended + ice and spinach. Β On occasion I use the cafe mocha + energy flavor of Amazing Grass superfood powder for a pick me up... It tastes like a rich and creamy coffee drink! But I usually stick to the plain greens and the "creamy fudge" orgain plant based protein powder.

My diet isn't perfect, but it works for me. I have been working at achieving balance in every area of life to make my new lifestyle sustainable. And im falling in love with the process πŸ‘πŸ’ͺ
