Here we are again, Food Friday Meal Prep for Weight Loss! I can’t believe the week flew by super fast. Crazy! Anyway, meal prep for this week was a little extra than usual.
Why? Because I decided to meal prep my breakfast along with lunch and dinner, the usual.
I think I’m going to change these posts a little bit and just write about the meal prep, but create different posts with recipes? We’ll see.. Moving on to breakfast!
Breakfast Burritos Meal Prep for Weight Loss: 118 Calories, 37 Carbs, 7 Fat, 15 Protein
I usually meal prep Red Beet Eggs every week, since it’s a superfood and delicious. This week I didn’t feel like peeling a fuck ton of hard boiled eggs. My great idea was to make breakfast burritos I can freeze! I actually used to make these with eggs, beans, cheese, mushrooms, onions, and potatoes – but I opted for a simpler version this week.
- Egg Beaters – these are my favorite
- Low Carb/Calorie Tortillas – these are the BEST tortillas EVER!! ONLY 50 CALORIES!!
- Fat Free Sliced Cheese
- Turkey Bacon
To make things easier I bought a small container of egg beaters to cut down on fats and prep time. One egg can usually have 70-80 calories and around 6 grams of fat, and if I cracked a bunch of eggs, that would be a ton of work and more fats than I would like for breakfast.
For the tortillas I bought these 50 calorie tortillas that are a normal size, not those mini tortillas that don’t hold enough food.
For the cheese, I just bought the Walmart fat-free cheese slices, but you can get shredded cheese – I just saw the sliced cheese first.
Lastly, we had turkey bacon in the freezer, so I just thawed it out and used it!
Lunch: Ground Turkey, Potatoes, & Veggies | 223 Calories, 22 Carbs, 2 Fat, 31 Protein
- 99% Ground turkey
- Veggies – broccoli, cauliflower, grape tomatoes, and onions
For this I pretty much just seasoned the ground turkey with salt, pepper, cumin, and garlic powder. Then I cooked it in a pan – simple.
The potatoes and the veggies were all cut up and thrown in the oven with salt, garlic powder, and pepper. This is seriously my favorite way to meal prep – the oven is LIFE!
Dinner: Chicken, Potatoes, Veggies | 327 Calories, 39 Carbs, 4 Fat, 34 Protein
- Veggies (same as above)
The chicken was seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, cumin, and some numeric powder. I actually put it in the oven in the same pan as the potatoes so the potatoes would soak some chicken flavor. Yummm
The veggies were from the same batch I made and used for lunch. I usually like to prep my veggies the same way for lunch and dinner, so I just make a shit-ton of veggies and divide them for all the lunches and dinners. It helps me stay sane and keeps meal prep pretty simple.
