Meal Prep: Week of 5/29/17

I hope you’ll forgive me that I’m a little late on the meal prep post, but you know what they say: better late than never! Obviously the holiday weekend threw things off a little bit, but now it’s back to the “routine”–which isn’t much for me considering I’m still off until next week. I did most of my meal prep for the week yesterday, and I kept it super simple. I decided that I really liked the format of meal prep I did last week with the batch cooking, so I stuck to it this week. I’m not sure if it will work out as well when I start back at my internship rotations, but for now while my schedule is structure-less it’s a great option.

I also really liked the intermittent fasting. I never felt overly hungry and I feel like it helped control cravings, so I’m sticking to it another week. If you’re like “what are you talking about Michelle” then click here to see my post from meal prep last week to see what I’m referring to!

Meal Prep: Week of 5/22/17

I haven’t really done a meal prep in a while because I have been off of school and internship rotations for a couple weeks, so there wasn’t really a need for it! I still have a significant amount of time off, but I wanted to get back to the swing of meal prepping just to keep me on track. With that being said, since I do still have a lot of flexibility in my schedule, I thought it would be a good time to try a new method of meal prepping. Instead of diligently planning each meal and using several specific recipes, I did more of a batch cooking type of prep for this week. I did come up with a few combinations and ideas for meals, but I don’t have a set “menu” like I normally do.

Meal Prep IS BACK!

Okay, so I’ve been all about the easy throw together meals lately, and there ain’t nothin’ wrong with that! Some delicious roasted brussels sprouts and pre-cooked grilled chicken are a golden combination any day if you ask me. This week, it’s back to the grind in the kitchen on a Sunday! I finally had some time to plan and try out some recipes I’ve been wanting to try. If you saw my instagram story, I mentioned that this week I tried out some healthier takes on classic favorites. Everything turned out really delicious and I’m so excited to share.

A Sweet Potato Worth Blogging About

Hey hi hello! If you thought I was gone for good, you thought wrong.

I took a very long hiatus from blogging due to unreasonable amounts of stress and school work, but I’m not here to talk about that. I wanted to drop in because I NEED to tell the world about the most incredible creation I made.

I will call it the Loaded Sweet Potato. (So creative, right guys?)

Sweet tooths, foodies, sweet potato lovers, and even health nuts are guaranteed to love this recipe. I can barely even call it a recipe though, because really it’s quite simple. Just a few easy ingredients and steps are needed to make this masterpiece, but I was blown away at how scrumptious the combination was. Not to mention it is packed with nutrition (fiber! protein! vitamins! healthy fat!) and can serve as a breakfast, lunch, or even dessert option. So without further ado, here it is.
