Meal Prep Ideas for the Heat Wave
It's going to be hot this week! Here are a few easy food prep ideas to minimize your time in the kitchen.
Protein: Grill extra meat that you can eat cold, cook chicken in the Crockpot with salsa, hard boil eggs, and buy cans of tuna fish
Vegetables: Stay raw- chop lettuce, cucumbers, bell peppers, celery and carrots
Carbs: Overnight oats, berries, bananas and other fruit
Healthy fat: Avocado, nuts and nut butters
Putting it together into meals:
- Crockpot chicken, avocado, romaine lettuce, and bell peppers
- Grilled chicken, spinach, strawberries, walnuts, and olive oil as dressing
- Tuna and/or egg salad made with avocado, pickles, and celery
Overnight oats- add berries and almond or peanut butter
Isalean shakes are also an easy option. Just blend with ice and water and drink as a shake, or use less water and make a smoothie bowl.
