Sunday Sizzles (aka Sunday Meal Prep) are my ABSOLUTE favorite. In a world that wants to go fast and brag about grinding and being busy, it is your opportunity to plan out your macros for the week and PERSONALLY GUARANTEE your own food/macro success regardless of whatever work or life craziness may come your way.
Counting macros is kind of like brushing your teeth. At first, it’s annoying, you complain about it, and somebody CONSTANTLY has to remind you to do it. But eventually it becomes habit, and then when you don’t count, it leaves a bad taste in your mouth.
Overwhelmed and unsure where to start in your meal prep adventure?
1.) Decide on a “Staple Breakfast” – plan out a breakfast that you absolutely LOVE & keep it a ‘constant’ in your meal prep that doesn’t change from week to week (Hellooo, one less meal to plan!)
A typical breakfast for me usually consists of:
⚡️ham or a chicken sausage
⚡️rice, potatoes, or sweet potato
⚡️a veggie (bell peppers, zucchini, broccolini)
⚡️something green and leafy (arugula, spinach, or kale)
If you’re crunched for time, you could also utilize stuff that’s a little more portable:
Think instant oatmeal + protein powder + chia seeds + berries, or a killer protein smoothie and throw in protein powder + kale or spinach + chia/flax seeds + coconut oil or nut butter + berries or acidic fruits like pineapple or mango (This is where Pinterest comes in handy as you can make these super “green” and low carb, or use it as an excuse to get in antioxidants and other goodies)
2.) Plan Lunch & Dinner Using the “Rule of 2’s”:
⚡️2 proteins (ex: chicken & bison)
⚡️2 carbs (rice & japanese yams)
⚡️2 fats (avocado, extra virgin olive oil)
⚡️2 veggies (zucchini & broccolini)
⚡️lunch becomes chicken, rice, avocado, & zucchini
⚡️dinner becomes bison, japanese yams, evoo, & broccolini.
