I love to meal prep so I can have food for the week, and I don’t have to spend money eating out all the time for lunch…lets face it, that adds up quick. I put together some easy recipes for you guys to try.

-Overnight oats-

What you’ll need:

-Mason Jar

-Oatmeal (it can be flavored or plain)

-Almond milk (I get vanilla flavored)

-Fruit of your choice for topping (I used blueberries and bananas)

Directions:

fill the mason jar a quarter of the way with oatmeal (uncooked) then add almond milk to jar until almost full. close and shake until contents completely mixed together. Leave overnight and top with fruit the next day and enjoy!

-Egg Cup muffins-

What you’ll need:

-Muffin tin for baking

-Extra virgin olive oil

-6 eggs (organic are the best)

-Spinach

-Feta cheese

-pepper

Directions:

Coat the muffin tin with a little bit of olive oil in each cup. In a mixing bowl crack 6 eggs and add chopped spinach, pepper, feta and mix until smooth. Pour mixture into each cup so that each section has an even amount. Place into oven set to 375 degrees and bake for about 25-30 minutes. let cool then enjoy!

-Italian seasoned sweet potatoes-

What you’ll need:

-5 large sweet potatoes

-Potato peeler

-Italian seasoning

-Extra virgin olive oil

-Baking pan (large)

Directions:

Wash potatoes and then peel until skin is fully removed. Cut potatoes completely and then chop large pieces into smaller pieces (I cut them into fours). Spread potatoes on baking pan and drizzle olive oil until each piece has oil on it. Sprinkle Italian seasoning on potatoes so that each piece has an even coating. Place into oven set at 375 degrees and let bake for about 35 minutes or until potato center is soft (you can test by sticking a fork in the potato) let cool and enjoy!

-Kale and Brussel sprouts-

This is pretty easy….all you need to do is set a water filled pot on the stove at medium heat and let the veggies boil until soft

-Cajun spiced chicken breast- 

what you’ll need:

-5 large chicken breasts (lets all be adults here! lol)

-Cajun spice seasoning

-Pepper

-Extra virgin olive oil

Directions:

Wash Hands before and after touching chicken breast or any other raw meats. Rub cajun seasoning all over chicken breast until fully coated. add pepper and repeat. drizzle a little olive oil in a large pot on the stove over low to medium heat and place chicken breast into the oil (note: you are not deep frying the chicken so be cautious of how much oil you are adding) cook until semi-brown outside and fully cooked inside. Cut chicken breast into smaller pieces while still hot. Serve and enjoy!

Let me know how your recipes turn out!

Happy cooking!
