Since y’all LOVED my meal prep guide, I thought that I would do an update on some easy meals for breakfast lunch and dinner with the necessary ingredients for your next shopping trip!
Breakfast: Overnight Oats
-Quaker Oats (not flavored)
-Brown sugar & cinnamon
-Berries of any kind
-The night before, mix 1/2 cup of oats, 1 tablespoon of chia seeds, 1 teaspoon of brown sugar and cinnamon, and 1 cup of milk into a mason jar.
-Cap and leave in the fridge overnight
-Next morning, chop some berries, throw them on top of your oats and take it to go!
Pro Tip: Depending on the consistency, you MIGHT need to mix in some milk to loosen up the mixture.
Lunch: Turkey Meatballs With Cheesy Rice
-Low Sodium Pasta Sauce
-Fat-Free Mozzarella Cheese
-Brown Rice (pre-packaged, ready to microwave)
-In a bowl mix in 1/2 cup of brown rice, 3-4 meatballs, 1/2 cup of pasta sauce, 1/3 cup of cheese, and 4-5 cherry tomatoes.
-Microwave for 3-4 minutes and enjoy!
Pro Tip: Adjust your cheese and sauce depending on how cheesy or saucy you want your meal. Also, remember you can substitute the meat for your favorite veggies!!!
Dinner: Sweet Potato Volcano
-Sweet potato (preferably the microwavable kind, but raw will also work)
-Plain Greek Yogurt
-Salsa (I prefer EXTRA spicy, but…proceed with caution)
-IF you have the microwavable kind, disregard this step. Cut your potato in half along the vertical axis aka hot dog style (YES I WENT THERE), spray with cooking spray, wrap in foil, and leave in the oven for 40 min 350 degrees or until soft.
-Sprinkle a generous amount of cheese on your potato and microwave for 2 mins.
-Chop up your green onions and sprinkle on top along with salsa and greek yogurt
Pro Tip: You can always make a quick salad on the side or serve volcano alone depending on how hungry you’re feeling that night.
Hope you all enjoy making these meals and comment down below with any adjustments that you make!!
