Meal prep is complete for a couple days!! The thing I get asked for most often for is recipes!! And this is the reason...While some people can eat plain chicken, brown rice, and asparagus seasoned with Mrs Dash indefinitely, I’ve seen it derail and break the spirit of many motivated fitness enthusiast and end with a binge of all the unhealthy foods they felt “deprived” of. I do enjoy clean eating but I am a foodie at heart! I love food and trying new recipes which is why counting macros works better for me than a set meal plan and would be ideal for anyone that prefers a variety. Since I have spent many years on a mostly standard bodybuilding diet, I am unable to bend on some foods recommended in a typical macro plan and am careful with my food choices and sodium/sugar/saturated fat content. I also still carb cycle and follow a weekly instead of daily total and modify my daily carbs and fats around my workouts. IIFYM brings balance to my life and I love feeling excited waking up thinking about the yummy food for the day waiting for me in the fridge.
My latest obsession is sweet potato bowls!! And it’s super easy to make!
I make 3 servings for meal prep purposes but this is the 1 serving recipe:
1 large baked sweet potato
After the sweet potato cools, the peel should pull of easily
Toss the peeled sweet potato in a blender and add 1 teaspoon almond butter, 1/4 cup almond milk, and a sprinkle of cinnamon
Blend until creamy
Pour into a bowl and top with 1/4 cup blueberries or 1/2 a banana, a sprinkle of flax seeds, and an extra sprinkle of cinnamon.
