i seriously need to just start including all my recipes in IG posts at this point. lol. thank you guys for your patience…. Instagram really has become my blog though and i honestly don’t know how i feel about that! buuuut you came here for meal prep recipes so let’s get to’em 🙂 Hubs injured his knuckle playing basketball a lil’ over a week ago and came home in a full.arm.cast. #wut didn’t see that coming. the kicker is, he can’t sweat in that thing for 3 weeks. poor him…cause i’d basically crack in half if i couldn’t go release some endorphins for three weeks straight, sheesh! he is actually doing pretty darn awesome so far though, no kidding. so, because he can’t workout, he has to be on his nutrition game tough these days (or weeks, rather). i have been prepping for the both of us these past few months verrrry loosely (a lil too loose), but now he needs to buckle down, and so do i. so, here’s what i did for this prep :Weber Grills Seasonings can be found all over my IG feed; i have my faves but enjoy all of their all-natural seasonings. i came across this rub in Sams Club a while ago and it’s a winner on protein and veggies, yum. a generous sprinkle of this stuff + a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil is all i use on my veggies before roasting.
roast veggies @ 400 degrees, 25 minutes.
i cut up whatever i had available in the fridge: organic carrots, zucchini, red bell pepper, & some purple onion.you can flip them halfway through cooking if you’d like but i got lazy and just let them be.
i marinated the chicken in the honey garlic rub…and das it. no other liquid needed and the chicken still turns out as juicy and flavorful as ever. aim to marinate the breasts overnight for best results, but you can still season’em right before you grill them up too.
grill chicken breasts 5-7 min on each side over HIGH heat until juices run clear and there is no more pink.
for tha burger patties:
i love garnet yams! they are so much tastier and sweeter than jewel yams IMO. i cut up 2 yams into fries and tossed them around in a large bowl with about 1 TBSP of extra virgin olive oil and a squirt of liquid aminos.
bake yams @ 400 degrees, 12 min on one side, 10-12 on the other depending on thickness.
i added some sautéed kale (EVOO + liquid aminos + black pepper) and some leftover roasted spaghetti squash to complete the meals. need a customized meal plan according to your fitness goals? email me at leah.egwuatu@6PackUSA.com. happy meal prepping, guys!
