When doing the Whole30 or any clean eating, PREP is key! I want my first full work week on the Whole30 to be easy and stress free. That means I need choices for food and to have it ready to go.
Last night I baked a full package of chicken thighs – the three package organic thighs from Costco. I oiled the pan with avocado oil, salted and peppered the thighs, drizzled the top and baked at 350 for 50 minutes. Once I did that, my world opened up this morning for me. 🙂
Here’s what I prepped/readied this morning:
- Smoothie prep: unsweetened almond milk, kale, lemon/grapefruit juice (fresh); blackberries, beets, pineapple. These will be used for breakfasts or snacks or post workout.
- Hard boiled eggs: breakfast, snacks, post workouts.
- Chicken soup (chopped celery, leek, carrots, onion, mushroom; chopped cooked chicken). This is made and separated into containers for breakfast or lunch.
- Salads: power greens, pomegranate seeds, kalamata olives, cherry tomatoes; chopped cooked chicken (all from Costco) for my lunches.
- Cubed precooked turkey breast; celery sticks, carrots, peppers, almonds/other nuts, apples; placed in baggies or in tupperware for my snacks.
- Dinner prep: took some various sliced veggies and placed in baggie. I will make a stir fry with the thighs one night for dinner.
- Have a whole chicken thawing out for another dinner.
- Have chicken breasts I’m marinating for chicken satay for another dinner.
- We’ll eat left overs another night and chili another night for dinner.
- On hand we always have sweet taters, broccoli, cauliflour. These will be used for side dishes when needed.
This is my week food plan in a nutshell. I’m going to post the recipe for the chicken satay – you will LOVE it.
Cheers to a week of the Whole 30 and eating clean and feeling better!
