Meal Prep Question
Do any of y'all eat the same breakfast, lunch, and dinner everyday?

What are some of your favorite and easy meal preps?

re: Meal Prep Question
My breakfast and lunch are usually pretty similar. I keep those consistent and high protein, because it frees up some macros so that I can eat whatever the wife cooks for dinner with the family. I'm not super strict, but I find that gives me a good balance of keeping a good diet and being able to eat normal with the family at night.

Same. I don't go out to lunch much anymore since I work due the plant now. Plus they said no vendor lunches due to covid.

I pretty much eat dance breakfast and pretty close on lunch everyday. Mashes life much easier when it comes to family dinner( nit many of those now though why 3 boys and sports practice back in full swing)

I keep it high protein and lower fat. Very light carbs if any. Keep my macros flexible for dinner.

re: Meal Prep Question
For meals-

Breakfast- i like to get 5 of the just crack an egg cups. I add 2 or 3 eggs and microwave. Makes life really easy with 3 boys under 10. You could even do egg whites here to keep the calories even lower.

Lunch- i like to buy the veggie skewers, 1 for each day. I buy the chicken breast fajita bags from sams by John souls, I do the 16lz bag in the air fryer. After its defrosted good, I add seasoning, take the veggies from the skewer and maybe one onion or some mushrooms and throw in. I toss with a little evoo, season and cook.

If you are eating carbs, the quinoa & brown rice bags from sams by seeds of change are easy. I usually heat a bag in microwave while sautéing some trinity(i buy precut) in a non stick pan. I'll throw the bag in after with a little mushrooms. Throw a bag of the fajita chicken in the air fryer then throw in with the rice. Add a little seasoning, little soy sauce or other Asian sauce and you have a quick and healthy fried rice that you can split for one or two meals.

Key for all of this is the veggies. Using them to add volume to the food while keeping calories low.

I personally prefer to limit my carbs. But even if you don't plan to do that and you have a wife and kids, I encourage you to limit them throughout the day to allow flexibility at night. Especially if you are big on family dinner.

re: Meal Prep Question
I was 231 pounds nine months ago. I am now 167 and in the best shape of my life.

5 - 4 - 3

5 ounces lean protein (Pork, Skinless Chicken Breast, Tilapia)

4 ounces of a vegetable (green pees, green beans, etc)

3 ounces of a starchy carb (sweet potato, rice)

I eat that for lunch and dinner

1/2 cup to a cup of egg whites for breakfast

2 premier protein shakes during the day

Athlean X brand Protein shake at night

Lots of resistance training

No junk food. No alcohol.

No fun but the fat melted off of me and I got lean, real lean

Good luck

re: Meal Prep Question
I lost 15 lbs in 60 days doing something similar.

Scrambled eggs (occasionally oatmeal with powdered PB and a small scoop of trail mix.

Lunches and dinners were meat (chicken, tuna, or tilapia) carbs (brown rice or baked sweet potatoes) and veggies (green beans, Brussels sprouts, broccoli/ cauliflower, peas/carrots).

Main thing was keeping my macros in line and cutting out simple sugars. No sodas, no snack cakes, no candy bars, etc. Only sugars I got were from OJ and a tiny bit of trail mix with fruit in it or frozen blueberries in my oatmeal.

re: Meal Prep Question
Egg beaters are a delicious, low calorie protein packed quick breakfast. You can microwave them for 1.5 minutes. Sliced turkey or grilled chicken in a quick salad. Veggie/lentil pasta with a light tomato sauce. Vegetable frittata. Veggie stir fry over brown rice. Greek nonfat yogurt with almonds or walnuts. Turkey bacon with egg whites. Steel oatmeal with blueberries or strawberries and a drizzle of honey.

Spinach/mushroom/feta/egg white omelet, turkey burger, put rotisserie chicken pieces with greens, tomato, avocado for a salad, puréed vegetable soup with an onion, chicken or vegetable stock, carrots, celery, broccoli or whatever vegetables you like, salt and pepper.

Never understood the point of these. Is making actual eggs/egg whites that burdensome?
