So I said I would do these weekly meal prep posts.. And as you can most likely tell that hasn’t been happening! So I’m going to catch you up on alllll the meal prep I’ve been doing over the past few weeks.
First; I would like to admit I haven’t been doing meal prep as much as I “should” be, but that’s okay! Sometimes life gets a little bit crazy and things fall by the wayside- the most important part for me and for YOU on your fitness journey is that you just.. keep.. going! You are never going to find that perfect balance of eating nutritiously, working out, spending time with friends, work, family… it’s a big juggling act! Sometimes you’ll totally be on your fitness game, and sometimes you’ll be spending that time with friends. My point is that- every day you need to think about what you are going to make a priority and that’s going to change from day to day. So please do not stress, just find a way to keep on keeping on — that is where you will see success!
So the past few weeks I’ve been sticking with quick and easy meals. One of my favourites that I make a ton is this breakfast casserole:
-So easy to re-heat, add a little avocado on top and you’ve got a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner!
You know that I’m obsessed with my crockpot. I tried these two recipes-both are awesome. I love the enchilada chicken stew as a full meal (freezes awesome as well – there is always some of these in my freezer!) and I paired the easy shredded pork (and I mean EASY) with roasted broccoli, asparagus, and mushrooms for a simple meals.
For some simple snacks- protein balls are the way to go. They are super easy, tasty and filled with good stuff. I made the dark chocolate coconut (amazing) and Caramel Salted Balls for my bootcamp- they were a hit!

Last but not least, a little dessert for you guys! I made this pie which was to die for- it definitely isn’t “low-calorie” but who cares! It definitely hit the spot and was gone quite quickly between all my clients!
Another meal I’ve been loving is eggs! Most breakfast you’ll find me having 2 eggs, some lox salmon, and avocado- filled with healthy fats and so filling.
I also did some simple salmon prep with a recipe from my Mom- you take a salmon fillet and coat with full fat mayo, and lemon pepper spice. Broil in oven at 425 for about 12-15 minutes depending on thickness of salmon. I put that with some spaghetti squash and roasted veggies and sweet potato. (I know, I’m terribly exciting).
So what are you waiting for? Pick a recipe, grab a few ingredients and get yourself some healthy meals ready to eat!!
