Weekly Meal-Prep Pictures

I’ve already written a post breaking down my weekly meals by ingredient and macro, this is more of a visual aid.  Plus, pictures are pretty.

Our kitchen pre-meal prep:

Messy, but ready to be filled-up.

Eating whole foods means an empty pantry.

AAAAND LETS BEGIN!

With our meal prep, we start by steaming our veggies.  It takes the most time, but is definitely the easiest.  So we collect the broccoli and green beans and start cooking them in a forgotten corner of the kitchen.

We get two jumbo bags from HEB.

One jumbo bag is more than enough.

Next, I start chopping up the bell-peppers. And I just keep chopping….forever.  When you and the S.O. (significant other) eat ~15 bell peppers a week, you eventually pull-up a chair and put on a show.

And then starts the dividing.  I don’t like green, so Cody gets ALL of those.

Ohhhh Pretty!!

While I am chopping my life away, Cody starts the easy(HA!) job: cutting through 4-inch thick sweet potatoes to make my hash.

About 1.5lb of sweet potato is enough for me.

1/2 of an onion.  Onions are my kryptonite!!

Tossed into a skillet with 1tbs of pink himalayan sea salt, pepper to taste, and LOTS of garlic.

The next job is probably the LEAST labor-intensive…so naturally it’s mine.  I start to measure out my fats and prepare the morning guac.

1tbs of peanut butter x6, 15g of almonds x6, 15g of pistachios x6

Two beautiful avocados and HEB’s pico mix in mild.

The best, easiest guac ever!

And onto the meats…

For loving to eat as much as I do, you’d think I could cook better.  Sadly enough, I have no sense of ‘done’.  Therefore I lost my rights to cook the meat after one too many raw chicken episodes.  Cody handles it now.

Finally, the chicken for dinner!
