Q: Why meal prep?
A: Meal prepping isn't for everyone, but for some meal prepping can help save time, simplify life, refine eating habits and keep you on track with eating goals.
Q:Isn't eating the same thing everyday boring?
A: Not for everyone! Check out our Instagram page @mealprepdaily for hundreds of different meal preps to add variety to your meal plans.
Q: Is it necessary to freeze meals?
A: We suggest that preppers refer to the USDA website for food safety. Many factors come in to play with food safety, including but not limited to, temperature, containers, location in the refrigerator, etc.
The USDA website states, among other things, that:
"A general rule of thumb for refrigerator storage for cooked leftovers is 4 days; raw poultry and ground meats, 1 to 2 days."
Chicken and rice are meal prep staples! But after eating chicken and rice for a few weeks I wanted to add something to refresh the meal. I bought a pineapple, sliced it up and added it to the meal. This is something that really helps me manage the sweet tooth and cravings for high sugar foods.
I used 8 ounces of grilled chicken breast, seasoned with Flavor God seasonings, 105 grams of brown rice (steamed) and 3 oz of fresh pineapple. If you try it out please tag us, we'd love to see your spin on this meal.
Add some spice 🌶 to your preps! I blended 4 oz of the 99/1 and 4 oz of the 93 / 7 lean ground turkey and paired it with 105 grams of brown rice and fresh Jalapenos. I also added 4 oz of broccoli to this meal (not pictured).
If you want more spice 🌶🔥 you can use Serrano peppers or even habenero peppers if you have a really high tolerance for hot peppers. I personally don't use peppers this hot, but have experimented with them.
