Smashby’s Meal Prep: 8/21/16

Posted: August 22, 2016 in CrossFit, Nutrition

DISCLAIMER:
The thoughts featured in the post and video are mine and mine alone!

I’ve made a breakfast quiche on the blog before, but over time, the process of cooking a meal like this gets even easier. This week, the goal was to show how 15-20 minutes of prep time can make 8-12 meals for the week!

The process is easy:

  • Crack and whip up some eggs
  • Cut up meat and veggies of your choice
  • Add meat and veggies to pie crust
  • Pour egg on top
  • Leave in oven at ~400 degrees for ~45 minutes
  • Enjoy!

Here at home we typically use Gluten Free pie crusts from Whole Foods, but not every week. I also love cheese, so I add that to my quiche. For those of you that don’t eat dairy, the meals are still really good without cheese.

When I don’t take the time to meal prep, my fall-back options are always less healthy, and more expensive. As much as I love a good gas station burrito or a Bruegger’s bagel sandwich, it’s probably best (for my stomach AND my wallet) that I don’t eat them multiple times per week!

Eating well, and being prepared for the week doesn’t have to be that difficult. I share posts like this to try and help remind people of that.

I’m also going to stop worrying about needing to make “perfect” meals for these videos. Some food I make isn’t the healthiest, but I’m trying share what it is I do make at home! Almost all of my meals could include a leaner meat as the main protein, I could omit cheese from my recipes, or I could weigh and measure each meal.

That’s not what *I* want to do, but I COMPLETELY SUPPORT anyone who does do that. Therefore, if there’s anyone out there who would like to make recipe suggestions, or find out “block-” or “macro-“breakdowns for the meals I cook, PLEASE feel free to post them in the comments, and we can share that information with anyone who is interested!

I hope you guys enjoy these videos and find some value in them! Have a great week, team.
