Monday mantra: Don’t worry, be happy ✌🏼🤩
We all work hard to make ourselves happy and healthy so why not make our fridges happy too?
I’ve learned that a prepped fridge keeps me making healthy choices throughout the week.
I use the term prepped loosely because I make sure I have fresh on the go stuff on hand.
My nutrition doesn’t require me to spend hours in the kitchen to have a healthy lifestyle.
Here are some things you can have on hand to make your fridge full of healthy options.
1. Buy fresh fruits and veggies to take on the go, and some dips like hummus, guacamole etc. I’ll always keep these on hand to have for quick snacks. Just prepare some bags of cut veggies like cucumber, mini sweet peppers, carrots or cherry tomatoes. For fruit pick portable ones like peaches, apples, oranges or bananas. Both of these options are great for snacking.
2. Prep proteins and grains. Make or buy a couple proteins you know you’ll eat throughout the week. I’ll keep things like prepped chicken strips, veggie or turkey burgers, jackfruit, seitan, and eggs on hand for quick meals. I’ll also cook up some sweet potatoes or rice if I want to add some carbs to fuel me throughout the day.
3. Keep roasted veggies, cauliflower, veggie slaw and salad mixes on hand for the base of meals. Foods like these make it easier to fit in veggies and make your meals full of nutrients. Think things like cauliflower rice, zoodles, salads or a veggie hash.
4. Healthier alternatives to sweet treats, I’ll make protein balls, overnight oats or have frozen fruits on hand for smoothies all these help me not reach for sweets during the week and keep them as an occasional treat.
What do you prep for the week ahead?
