Sunday Food Prep, and 1300 calorie cooler

Happy Monday! My Sunday Food Prep went according to plan and here's what I've got for this week:

Proteins: Grilled Chicken breast, roasted pork tenderloin, browned ground beef, Tilapia, Halibut, Greek Yogurt & Hard Boiled Eggs
Veggies: Green Beans, broccoli, Asparagus, Sweet Potatoes, baby potatoes, orange & red peppers, zucchini & yellow squash, plus salad makings
Fruit: pear-apples, apples, blueberries, grapefruit, lemons (plus for the family there's bananas)
Fat: Avocado, EVOO, Coconut Oil, Feta

I love having it all done. There's just something about knowing that food is prepped and ready to go that allows me to face the week in a more positive way.

Food today is all clean & tasty :-) I've upped my pre-workout calorie intake so that I'm hitting the gym with a little more in the tank. Today (pre-dinner) my cooler contains 1340 calories (41% carb, 37% protein, 22% fat and 21.8 g fiber). After work I have Total Body Conditioning class, then I'm dashing home to make a "fancy" dinner for the family tonight. I've got a nice beef tenderloin marinating, and I picked up some snow crab legs to steam, and a couple lobster tails (big ones were just $7/each!) that I'll sauté, then serve all with Chipotle mashed sweet potatoes & steamed asparagus. It'll be a fun surf-n-turf valentines. Everything was on mega-sale, so it's nice to be able to treat the family. 

Here's my cooler for today (sorry about the fuzzy pic, I had to use my dinosaur-phone camera):
Chelle's clean eating cooler for Monday, Feb 14, 2011


  1. Chelle,
    I was wondering if you prep the Halibut and Tilapia, and if so how?

  2. Hi Anita!
    It depends on how quickly I'll be using it. This week, the fish on the menu is later (thurs/fri)so while the fish is still in the freezer, the ingredients for marinades are prepped (chopped nuts, spices, etc). They're in little baggies and ready to go when I need them.
