Meal Prep Monday

Hey Y'all,

After a few months of getting settled and a short hiatus, I am back and ready to blog. My job provides me with so many ways to be connected to the community and supports me living a healthy and happy life. I've been loving my Crossfit community at Raincity, spinning at Cadence, starting my GranFondo training and prepping food like a ninja.

When life gets super cray, I really understand the importance of maintaining a schedule and prepping food. A week without prepped food isn't going to be a good week. Yes, it's that important. Prepping food doesn't have to cost a lot or take a lot of time. My prep usually takes me between 2 - 3 hours and that means every thing is chopped, ziploc'd and ready to eat. I usually do enough food for my work days.

Today I hit Whole Foods for my meats, a few veggies and the rest I scooped from Kin's Market. Right now they have local fruits and veggies which is awesome. My carrots were so local they got dirt all over my kitchen floor and all I could do was smile. The total for my shop was $68.00 and that will make 5 brekkie's, 5 lunches and 5 dinners. You do the math. This sets me up for all my basic meals but sometimes I get extra hungry and will have a Vega shake or grab sushi at work. Just to be real. Time for me to get prepping and map out my workouts for the week!

Eat. Sweat. Smile. Repeat!
