Week 1- Meal Prep



Lunch/Dinner

  • Garlic, lemon & Italian herb chicken

                     – Sides of Pumpkin, Sweet Potato, Potato, corn & Asparagus. 

  • Using the above chicken I also made a chicken salad. Simple dressing of Lemon, dried oregano, olive oil & salt.
  • Beef stew with a side of brown rice & Quinoa. 

Note: 

Everyday we will alternate what we preferred for lunch and dinner, just so we are not eating the same thing every day. 


Storing Meals:

I prepare meals for approx 3 days, I store them in the fridge heat them up when needed and they taste delicious every single time. Both my husband and I personally don’t like the whole freezing cooked meals in the freezer, but I do premarinate proteins and freeze them and just allow them to thaw once ready to be cooked. 

Chicken Marinade;

  • 500 Grams chicken breast (cleaned and sliced) 
  • 2-3 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Italian mixed herbs

Tip;

     – Use a zip lock bag fold it over a small bowl and place the chicken marinade and chicken into the bag, seal it well and then shake the bag allowing the marinade to coat the chicken evenly. This is a mess free way when meal prepping. 

Beef Stew;

For the beef stew I literally only used the continental recipe base called ‘Beef Stew’ I purchased this from coles. I used diced beef however, Lamb back strap will also be delicious in this dish.

Enjoy!
