12/29-1/5 Weekly Meal Prep Plan & Grocery List

Nothing I say about the Maple Cinnamon Sweet Potato Bake will ever come close to describing how good it is! If anything, you have to purchase the meal plan just for this recipe! Probably one of my top 5 favorite recipes! Other awesome recipes you will be making this week: Beef Stew, Stuffed Peppers, and Tex Mex Egg Cups!

Nutrition Focus This Week

Eggs

I think eggs are one of the most versatile meal prep foods on earth. They are also extremely nutritious and packed with:

  • Protein

  • Fat

  • Selenium

  • Vitamin B6

  • Vitamin B12

  • Zinc

  • Iron

  • Choline

  • Fat soluble vitamins - A, D, E, K.


Eggs can be used in:

  • Omelets

  • Quiches

  • Salads

  • Casseroles

  • Muffins

  • Pancakes

I personally love to make egg muffins for meal prep. It provides me with a quick grab and go option for breakfast or lunch. I like to crumble my Tex Mex egg muffins up, heat in microwave for 30-60 seconds, and then spoon the Tex Mex egg mixture into a Flat Out Wrap with salsa for a yummy breakfast burrito.

 

Featured Brand This Week

  • Tessamae Ranch Dressing: organic ingredients and Whole 30 approved

  • Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Mayo: made with avocado oil, dairy free, organic, sugar free.

 

Tip & Tricks for Meal Prep This Week


Maple Cinnamon Sweet Potato Breakfast Bake:

  • Great to use as a breakfast, snack, or pre/post workout snack option.

  • Super kid friendly!

  • Also could be used as a dessert option


Tex Mex Egg Cups:

  • Could be used for a breakfast option.

  • I like to crumble mine up with some leftover roasted veggies, cheese, and salsa and heat up like a scramble

  • I also like crumble them up and throw into a Flat Out Wrap like a breakfast burrito.


Physical Kitchness Sheet Pan BLT:

  • I would keep chicken, bacon, and tomatoes separate from iceburg lettuce until you are throwing it together at lunch time.

  • Instead of Paleo Mayo you could use Bolthouse or Tessamae Ranch dressing.


Slow Cooker Beef Stew:

  • Watch your crockpot… pending how fast your crockpot typically cooks it could be done after 4-5 hours instead of 8.

Stuffed Peppers:

  • I used Rotisserie chicken for them. You could also throw an extra couple chicken breast on your BLT sheet pant to use for this.

  • I used Bolthouse ranch dressing in this recipe.

Things to keep in mind:

  • Please consult your dietitian or doctor if you have specific dietary needs, these plans are not used as medical nutrition therapy.

  • These recipes are not portioned to your specific family, customized to fit your budget, or consider specific dietary needs… you may need to cut or increase portion size and modify ingredients to your preference.

  • Some grocery lists look long… don’t stress out! Often it is due to condiments and spices. Please take the time to go through your pantry and see what you already have on hand.

  • Breakfast, Lunch, and Snacks are designed to be prepped in advance for the week… dinner is meant to be made either the night of or ahead of time.

  • Specific brands are not used due to differences in grocery stores. However, in some cases to make dishes healthier or to demonstrate my personal preference, I will specify a brand to buy.

  • You may not perceive some of these recipes as “healthy”... However, the definition of “healthy” is so different from person to person. I truly believe you can eat all foods. It just depends on the quantity, frequency, balance of your meals, and if your body is able to tolerate them.
