At the start of my week, either on Sunday or Monday, I will cook up 5-7 chicken breasts, cut up veggies and get pre cut lettuce (only because I hate cutting lettuce, don’t ask me why, I just do!).
After I cook the chicken, I separate them into individual bags or Tupperware so that I have easy access to them. Then throughout the week, I am able to throw a salad together or some veggie pasta with good protien. I don’t know about you, but my time is precious with a little one to take care of and prepping a healthy meal can sometimes be difficult. You can also get “Just Chicken” from Trader Joes. It’s all cooked and ready to go for you. I love to pair my meals with a healthy energy drink or protein. The drink I love is root beer flavored XS. No carbs, no sugar and lots of B12. B12 is essential for new mommies. Really, for anyone! It can be easy to pick up something unhealthy, but then you feel terrible. Take 30 minutes to prep your food for the week, you won’t regret it.
When I prepare myself, I feel better and can be better for my family. And I’m a lot sweeter when I have eaten.
