Last week I showed you some meals from before my huge meal prep and this week I give you a taste of what I’m enjoy post-meal prep. This was, of course, a day full of school work and studying so if it looks like my computer is in the photos, it is. I don’t like rushing my meals so I usually take my time eating lunch and breakfast while sending emails or reading articles.
Breakfast: Overnight oats with raspberries, frozen blueberries, and peanut butter. I have had protein pancakes for a few breakfast over the weekend but this bowl is still my go-to school or work morning breakfast.
Lunch: I had a ton of leftover shredded carrot from my meal prep day so I made a carrot salad with shredded carrot, wild and brown rice, pomegranate arils, feta, and a honey dijon dressing. I had some whole grain Rice Crackers on the side!
Afternoon snack: Greek yogurt, cookies and cream protein powder, and a sprinkle of trail mix. So much protein and it is DELICIOUS. I also drank a ton of water while studying which is super inconvenient in a library because I am paranoid about theft and I pack up my stuff every time I have to pee. #universityproblems
Dinner: Vegetarian chili. THERE IS NO WAY TO MAKE CHILI LOOK GOOD IN A PHOTO. I swear, winter lights, beans and tomatoes, it is just not possible. BUT this chili is unreal and delicious. I added so many tomatoes and a lot of zucchini and onion to the chili which made it really filling!
Meal prep has made my work and school lunches SO much better and I’m so glad I decided to get some freezer meals ready. I think I will be good until Christmas in which case I will have time to do a whole other batch for the first few weeks of the new year! It isn’t even super cold in Alberta right now but chili and soup for dinner or lunch is just so comforting. 🙂
