My husband used to eat fast food everyday over his lunch break. Eating take out each day was becoming expensive. I work from home, but that means I have easier access to things like ice cream and cookies and I am sometimes tempted to eat throughout the day.
I wanted my husband and I to eat a healthier diet and of course save money, so that’s when I decided to start meal prepping. Meal Prepping is when you prepare your meals for the next few days or week to maintain a healthy diet. You save money by having prepared meals ready to go and then there is no excuse to order fast food.
Ingredients for Meal Prepping with Litehouse
Weightlifters prep meals to ensure they are eating several, healthy, protein-packed meals throughout the day. Those who are trying to lose weight can pre-portion healthy ingredients based on recommendations from their doctor. Meal prepping is even a time-savior for those who are following the Paleo or whole foods diet. I spent a little under two hours last weekend and prepared about twelve lunches for my husband and I to eat throughout the week. Using Litehouse products, especially the Instantly Fresh herbs, means being able to add a lot of flavor without a lot of calories. I grilled the chicken, burgers and veggies because the weather is warm and it is National Grilling Month!
This weekend I made orange and soy glazed green beans, lemon-lime cilantro chicken, balsamic mixed vegetables and Italian turkey burgers and grilled them all at the same time. I like to grill my veggies in a grill basket - it brings such great flavor to the marinated vegetables. I then turned the recipes into these meals:
- Italian Turkey Burgers over rice (or mashed cauliflower) with black beans and orange and soy glazed green beans.
- Lemon-Lime Cilantro Chicken on a spinach salad with tomatoes and cashews with Litehouse Organic Ranch dressing.
- Cilantro Chicken over rice (or mashed cauliflower) with roasted sweet potatoes and balsamic mixed vegetables.
Meal prepping has made my life easier; we’ve saved money and we are eating healthier! Eating healthy doesn’t have to mean expensive. Start meal prepping today!
