Sunday Night Food Prep

Today's Workout:

After yesterday's 14 mile run, I decided I should rest my legs today. I had a fantastic long run despite the cloudy weather and the wretched humidity. I made sure to hydrate at every water fountain and I splashed some water on my belly to keep baby Myles cool =).

Now that I'm all rested, time to get ready for the work week. Here's what my Food Prep looks like for the week:
On the menu:
(From left to right)
- Snack: Dehydrated apples
- Lunch: Walnut and pea salad with balsamic vinaigrette & sweet potato with grilled chicken
- Snack: Green grapes with a slice of pear & cottage cheese
- Snack: Hummus with hard-boiled eggs (Pregnant woman craving!)
How I prepared it:
I bought the bulk size dehydrated apples bag from Costco. Seven slices equals 1 apple.

Walnut & pea salad: I mixed 2 cans of organic peas with 2 cups of walnut, balsamic vinaigrette, ground black pepper, and a dash of vegan cheese (it's not real cheese).

Lunch: I wrapped 2 sweet potatoes in cellophane paper and placed it in the microwave for 9 minutes each. For the chicken, I placed a bunch of organic chicken on the barbecue and grilled them for about 7-8 minutes. I topped the chicken with garlic powder, oregano and parsley.
For the fruits, I placed all the grapes and pears in a bowl and I let the hot water pour on them for a bit.
Voila! I got lunch and snacks for the week!!
I'm grateful for spending Saturday
night with my best friend Andy and his
fiancée Crissy at their engagement party.

  1. Don't the pear pieces turn brown by the fourth day?

  2. Great looking system for one! I am curious about how this would work for a family of 4. I have 2 kids who also need lunches packed for the week, and snacks. We would never be able to fit everything we need into our fridge! I want my kids to eat healthy foods, too. Thanks!
