Meal Prep Week 5 of Insanity Max 30

Yay for catching up with sharing my meal plans with all of you! I really hope that you can see that meal prepping is not hard to do and it really doesn’t take a lot of time.

The hardest thing for me is just deciding what I want to eat each week.

Again I am sticking to the Countdown to Competition meal plan from the 21 Day Fix Extreme for this week. Check out my week 4 meal prep post for more info on that.

Here is my meal prep plan:

Normal Eating Days: 2💜 3💚 4❤️ 2💛 1💙 1🔶 2
Extreme Meal Plan Day: 3💚 6❤️ 1💛 3

Extreme Days – M, W, TH, SAT
Breakfast: 2❤️ 1 💚 1 💛1
4 egg cups and toast w/ PB
Lunch: 2❤️ 1💚
Chicken and veggies
Dinner: 1❤️1💚
Spaghetti squash w/ meat sauce
Shakeology: 1❤️ 2

Regular Days – T, F
Breakfast: 1❤️ 1/2💚 1💛 1
2 egg cups and toast w/ PB
Lunch: 1❤️ 1💚 1💛 1💙
Quinoa Taco Bake
Snack: 1💜
Fruit
Dinner: 1❤️ 1.5💚
Spaghetti Squash w/ meat sauce
Shakeology: 1❤️ 1💜 1🔶1
Vegan chocolate with 1/2 banana, chia seeds, and PB

Egg cups as always! Just mix up your eggs, throw in some chopped veggies, pour into a greased muffin tin, and bake for 15-20 minutes.

Chicken and veggies… that was a no brainer.  Cook your chicken and actually this week I was super lazy with meal prep and did steam in a bag veggies. BE CAREFUL with these veggies though, you HAVE to read your labels.  The veggies that are “seasoned” or “flavored” have a lot of crap in them so read, read, read.

Spaghetti squash and meat sauce was also a no brainer.  Quick, easy, and yummy just like I like it.

**Some tips for your spaghetti squash… Poke some holes in it and put it in the microwave for 5 minutes, this will make it easier to cut.  I cook my spaghetti squash in an InstantPot and it’s ready in 7 minutes. If you don’t have an InstantPot GET ONE!!!!

The quinoa taco bake was pulled out of the freezer from week three’s meal prep… I told you you could freeze it.

Shakeology is an EVERYDAY thing for me!!! It hits my sweet tooth every time and it keeps me on track.

Meal Prep Week 4 of Insanity Max 30

Again better late than never… right?

Week 4’s meal prep looked a little different… I am currently getting bikini ready for a trip I earned through Beachbody.  My boyfriend and I are headed to Punta Cana, so I am pushing hard to totally rock my bikini while we are there.

With that being said I decided to follow the 21 Day Fix Extreme Countdown to Competition meal plan until my trip.  This meal plan is basically carb cycling, so you have 2 super strict days and then one normal eating day.  As always I used the note section of my phone to plan for the week.  Here’s what week 4 looked like:

Normal eating days: 2💜 3💚 4❤️ 2💛 1💙 1🔶 2
Extreme meal plan days: 3💚 6❤️ 1💛 3

Extreme Days – M, T, TH, F
Breakfast: 2❤️ 1 💚 1 💛1
4 egg cups and toast w/ PB
Lunch: 2❤️ 1💚
Salmon and veggies
Dinner: 1❤️ 1💚
Venison and veggies
Shakeology: 1❤️2

Regular Days – W, S
Breakfast: 1❤️ 1/2💚 1💛 1
2 egg cups and toast w/ PB
Lunch: 1❤️ 1💚 1💛 1💙
Lasagna roll ups
Snack: 1💜
Fruit
Dinner: 1❤️ 1.5💚
Venison and veggies
Shakeology: 1❤️ 1💜 1🔶1
Vegan chocolate with 1/2 banana, chia seeds, and PB

Again I kept it REAL SIMPLE!

Egg cups are like my go to breakfast now.  They are so so so easy to make and I really don’t think you can mess them up.  Just whisk together your eggs, throw in some veggies, pour into a greased muffin tin, and bake for 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.  I typically will do chopped spinach and organic salsa in my egg cups.

I roasted a big pan of veggies for lunch and dinner.  I did zucchini, squash, broccoli, cauliflower, and cheery tomatoes.  Threw some seasoning on them and put them in the oven to roast.

As far as the salmon goes… I just seasoned it with lemon pepper, squeezed some lemon juice on them, and cooked them in the oven.

For the venison… I just ground that up.  If you don’t have venison just use ground turkey or a lean hamburger meat.

The only meal that took a little work were the lasagna roll ups and even they were not hard to do.  They are so so so so so good! Like you have got to try them! Here is the recipe: http://bit.ly/1FFOUse

And wa-lah meal prep for the week was done! Don’t over think your meals or your meal prepping!

**I did end up having to cook more fish during the week because I did not buy enough while grocery shopping.

Meal Prep Week 3 of Insanity Max 30

I’m pretty late on posting this, but I am still posting it.

During week 3 of Insanity Max 30 here was my meal plan:

Meal plan: Week 3 of Insanity Max 30
2💜 3💚 4❤️ 2💛 1💙 1🔶 2
–> Breakfast: 1❤️ 1💚 1💛 1
Breakfast casserole and toast with PB
–> Lunch: 1❤️1/2💚 1💛 1💙
Quinoa taco bake
–> Snack: 1💜
Fruit
–> Dinner: 1❤️ 1.5💚
Steak and veggies
–> Shakeology: 1❤️ 1💜 1🔶1
Vegan chocolate with 1/2 banana, chia seeds, and PB

When I plan my meals each week I literally just do the in the notes section of my phone and use emojis to help me keep up with my container count.

The breakfast casserole I made was done in the crockpot, so it was super easy to prep.  It’s actually is a cauliflower breakfast casserole and it is super yummy! Here is the recipe: http://bit.ly/2nXGjKM

For lunch during week 3 I had quinoa taco bake, which has been a favorite of mine for two years now.  It makes a lot and you can freeze the leftovers. Double win!!! I personally do not add cilantro to mine because I am not a fan of it, but other than that this is the recipe I followed: http://bit.ly/2nK8w75

Dinner again was another easy thing to make. I cooked the steak and veggies on the same pan in the oven and it was delicious! I got the idea for this meal right here: http://bit.ly/2ju6Srh

I always choose meals that do not take a lot of time.  I do NOT want to spend hours and hours in the kitchen so my prep typically takes me about an hour and half to complete.  Hope this helps some of you who are trying to figure out what to prep this week.

And Shakeology is a no brainer during my week! It is seriously the quickest, easiest, healthiest meal of the day and I LOVE IT!  I just throw in half a banana, some PB, and my chia and flax seeds.
