Meal Preppin Part Dos

Fit Andy is at it again, Meal Preppin’ Part Dos!

If you haven’t checked out my last post about meal prepping, you will see the basic things I made earlier this week.

This week was hectic…school, work, marathon training and being a wife! But, with the help of meal preppin’ I was able to stay focused and fueled throughout the day.

Here is today’s menu:

Meal 1: Breakfast roasted potatoes, Omelet taco and watermelon

Meal 2: Greek yogurt and homemade granola

Meal 3: Israeli Couscous Salad

Meal 4: Apple & Watermelon

Meal 5: Burrito Bowl (Brown rice, 3oz turkey meat, pinto beans, sautéed bell peppers, corn, feta cheese)

Meal 6: Baked Coconut Shrimp skewers

Ingredients:
1 corn tortilla
2-3 egg whites
Cherry tomatoes, cut in half
Onions, chopped
Serrano pepper, minced
Handful of cilantro, finely chopped
Sprinkle of feta cheese

Directions: Heat a small skillet and spray with oil. Pour in eggs and cover over medium heat for about 2-3 minutes. Once the omelet has set, place veggies on top. Meanwhile, heat tortilla. Put it all together and you got yourself an omelet taco.

Ingredients:
1lb red potatoes, cut in quarters
1 tbsp olive oil
Pinch of salt & pepper

Directions: Preheat oven to 425*F. Wash potatoes and then cut into quarters to make wedges. Place potatoes in a large saucepan, cover with water and cook over medium high heat for 15 minutes (this will soften them perfectly). Drain potatoes and place them in a large bowl, toss with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place potatoes on baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes, tossing half way through.

IMG_8492Baked Coconut Shrimp

Ingredients:
1lb shrimp (I bought it frozen from Trader Joes)
1 cup Whole wheat flour
2 eggs
1 cup Shredded coconut flakes

Directions: Preheat oven to 375*F. In a small bowl mix the egg and then pour into a plate, which allows you to drench the shrimp skewers. On two other large plates, place whole wheat flour on one plate and shredded coconut flakes on the other. Pile the shrimp onto the skewers through one end and out the other. Drench the shrimp skewers in the eggs, whole wheat flour and then the coconut flakes. Place on a baking sheet with parchment paper and drizzle a small amount of coconut oil over the top to give it that extra coconut flavor. Bake for 15 minutes. Serves 3-4.

DSC_1082I do not count calories on a daily bases, but if I had to guess I eat around 2400-2600 calories/day. Instead of obsessing over every calorie that I am consuming, I focus on making nutritious choices.

So, for those of you that are having a hard time losing weight, try focusing on just being healthy. There is no quick fix or diet pill that will do what healthy eating and exercising do. Work your butt off and make healthy food and I promise you that your body will reward you. Be patient, committed and never ever give up!!
