Meal Prep for Weight Loss Success!

Exsoycise is now Awakened Nutrition & Training, a blog for health seekers, food lovers and dream body builders!

Each week, I take a day and cook about 4 days worth of meals, which takes about an hour to an hour and a half of my time. I weigh my food and pre-package it in easy togo containers. I love doing my meal prep because of the time I save each day and I don't ever have to think or stress over what I am eating that day, I just grab it and go! I will usually saute a batch of chicken breast or extra lean ground turkey, veggies and cook either brown rice or brown rice pasta. I really love sauteing fresh vegetables, but to save time I will buy a variety of frozen vegetables. The frozen veggies are great because they never go bad in the freezer, they save me money each week, and are easy to prepare.Below I have listed an example of my current daily meal plan. If I feel like I am still hungry, I will have an apple during the day or even throw in a 6th meal with grilled chicken and veggies.
