This week's food prep...

Happy Monday! My Sunday Food Prep and The Counter of Chaos
were completed yesterday :-)

Proteins prepped were easy, I used the pork roast from Saturday's dinner and sliced it up into 4 ounce portions and bagged them. I also boiled my usual 18 eggs, peeled and bagged. Other
proteins are my Chobani 2% greek yogurt, and a few handy tuna packets for emergencies.

: this week asparagus was on sale ($1.99 lb), and I also got broccoli, zucchini & yellow squash. All were chopped and placed in steamer bags with Mrs Dash.

: Apples, bananas, peaches ($1/lb), blueberries & blackberries. A friend gave me a bag of grapefruit, so I was lucky and didn't have to buy that ;-) 

Grains: I'm using the Seeds of Change packets, and I have an Annie Chun's sprouted brown rice packet, too.

Family dinners planned include my healthy & clean pizza, panko dijon chicken with a clean mac-n-cheese & steamed broccoli (I'll let you know how the macaroni turns out), orange chipotle chicken with steamed asparagus, chicken & bean sandwiches with homemade tomato soup, and everyone's favorite bacon cheeseburgers and oven fries.

My daily cooler food is simple, per usual. You can view them daily here. This is today's cooler contents:

Before dinner, I'm at 1200 calories. When I add in my dinner, I'll be right around 1400-1500. Right where I want to be :-)  

Breakfast:  1 cup 2% Greek Yogurt (Chobani) with 1/2 cup blueberries, 2 tbsp ground flax & half a large grapefruit  
Snack 1:  apple & 2 hard boiled eggs. Lunch:  4 ounces chicken breast, 1/2 cup Brown Rice, 2 cups shredded cabbage & kale with dressing of 1/8 cup greek yogurt & 1 tsp sriracha sauce. 
Snack 2 (pre-workout & cardio): 4 ounces pork tenderloin with 1/2 cup baby carrots
Dinner (post workout & cardio): 
Clean Pizza. (I use a Alvarado Street Bakery sprouted pizza crust, homemade pizza sauce (low sodium), reduced fat mozzarella, applegate farms pepperoni and a ton of veggies).

The guys ( my hubby and his dad) have the following in their coolers: 1-Chelle's breakfast burrito,  2 hard boiled eggs, apple, string cheese, and a serving of Newman's Own Organic Pretzel sticks.  

Tonight I have Tab's total body conditioning class, followed by some cardio, and tomorrow I return to yoga! Yay! :-)

On another note, the fitness & nutrition world lost an icon. Jack LaLanne died yesterday, at the age of 96. One of my favorite Jack quotes is this:

"It's a lifestyle, it's something you do the rest of your life. How long are you going to keep breathing? How long do you keep eating? 
You just do it."
