I am currently experimenting with combining my typical meal prep with a little intuitive eating. For me this means a little prep of basics, like veggies and protein, but at the same time I'm not making full meals ahead. This way I can go along with cravings and hunger signals and not worry about a "plan". I also still have veggies prepped so I actually eat them throughout the week. If I don't cook them ahead, I know I won't eat them!

Sometimes it can be really helpful to take a step back and look at what you're doing. Taking away all my planning was really eye opening and definitely pushed me out of my comfort zone. Even though I'm a nutrition coach, I'm always learning and this was just another example of new things to learn. Onto my meals...


Here is what I prepped: carrots, sweet potato fries, zucchini, and hard boiled eggs.

Last week I wasn't satisfied with breakfast at all and I knew eggs would fill me up but never wanted to cook them. I took that as a sign and prepped a bunch of hard boiled eggs to have on hand for the week. If I want them for breakfast great, but if not they make great snacks too.

Easiest lunch ever. Chicken sausage and pineapple. There were carrots too.

At least there were some veggies!

Banana with sun butter

I made chicken ahead for protein and have been having a couple pieces for a snacks. Quick and easy.

Apple and pistachios.

Experimented with my first cauliflower pizza crust. More details soon....

And finally my favorite nighttime snack. Plain Greek yogurt with cinnamon.

Which do you prefer: Fruits or vegetables??? I love fruit but vegetables, not so much ;)
