I try my best to do my food prep on Sundays to save myself time in the mornings since I leave for work by 6am and I also get my workout in before I leave as well. Every week, a lot of things are typical. Here’s info on my typical breakfast/lunch.
I can’t wait to devour this week’s lunch I just prepped and I wanted to share it because it was simple to make and tacos are delicious. Who doesn’t love tacos. Just look at it..
2lb Grass-Fed Ground Beef (85% lean, 15% fat)
1 Red Onion
3 Jalapeño Peppers
8 servings Taco Seasoning (need two packets)
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1.25 cups White Basmati Rice
2 tbsp Butter
3 cups Black Beans (1 large can)
10 cups Spinach
1.25 cups Shredded Mexican Cheese
10 Soft Tortillas (6-inch)
1 Jar of Hot Salsa
This honestly took me about 1 hour but if done correctly, you can finish this in 30-45mins. Steps 1-3 can all be done simultaneously and that would be about 20 mins and Steps 4-9 are pretty simple and should be another 15-20mins.
I realize this this is a lot of food. I normally do not eat much of a breakfast so almost all of my calories are split between lunch, dinner, and the Nut Mix. Also, I strive for a heavy calorie count because I believe my metabolism calls for around 3,500 calories/day for muscle gain. You should be able to customize with different portions or just take the idea and figure out what meat, veggies, seasonings, etc. you like best. This was also fairly inexpensive to make, considering the amount of food! I believe it was around $20-30 for all 5 meals but it is tough to say exactly because of the amount of servings I used and some things were already in my fridge/cupboard.
I also prep the Nut Mix to make things easy on myself...
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
