The Lazy Girl Meal Prep


Hey hey!

See, I told you guys I would do a lunch post! I think I have initially been avoiding doing one because when it comes to my lunches… I can be somewhat lazy.

Sometimes I prep all of my food fresh on a Sunday, or I take leftovers, but most of the  time, I do this lazy girl meal prep. It’s great because it’s high in protein, filled with the proper carbohydrates and costs about $15 a week!

Whole Food and Central Market are my go-too’s for my lazy girl food  prep. All of their prepared food is healthy,  fresh & soooo good.

Note** You’ll notice in the pictures that I only do four days worth of lunches. This is because there is always one day out of the week that I am not in the office during lunch!

You’ll want to pick a lean protein, and then two sides. For the protein, I always choose two large chicken breasts (left over fish can be gross!), and for the sides I always stick to vegetables.



I cut the chicken breasts in half and then chopped them into bite sized pieces. I try to make it even enough so that each portion is 4 oz.

This would probably be a lot easier if I had a food scale, but I guesstimate and it works fine.



Then, you divide each portion of the vegetable evenly. For two days I will have chicken & brussels sprouts, and the other two days I will have chicken and green beans.


&& that’s it!!

I love this because the whole process only take 10 minutes. There is almost zero clean up and its total cost is $14.75. So that’s $3.69 per lunch. I think I can do that!

It’s also great because I know my body is getting the adequate nutrients it needs. I’m not over eating, and I will be full!

Hi there!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! This weekend was really fun for me because my little from my sorority, Gabby, was in for the weekend, so it was really special getting to spend time with her!! It was a weekend fully equipped with spin class, lunches, Bentley walks, drinks by the pool and dancing. Basically a lot of much needed girl time! The one thing about girls weekends though, is that it’s lots of drinking and eating not-so-healthy. Sooo if your weekend was anything like mine, then this chopped detox salad will be just what your body is craving & begging you for.

It’s filled with so much nutrients and truly cleanses your body. I literally feel like my body is glowing it’s so happy after I eat this salad. It’s basically a ton of raw vegetables blended in a food processor and topped with a avocado citrus dressing. To say this recipe makes a large amount would be an understatement of the century though. I thought it would be appropriate to share on a Monday so that if you decide to make it tonight, then you can have it for the week! I usually make this Sunday or Monday night & then have it for lunch everyday that week, topped with chicken. Although I always feel bad adding meat because I originally found this recipe from The Glowing Fridge. She is super vegan & I love how strongly she feels about it, but personally, protein is a big part of my diet & I am not ready to make the transition right now. But, you guys should really check out her blog, it’s really great!

Anyways, this salad is great for lunch because it’s super refreshing and unbelievably filling. I have never had it and felt “blahhhh” afterwards.

You guys know that “blah” feeling. It’s not fun.

So give your body the nutrients it needs. You won’t regret it:)

When you are storing is, make sure to keep the salad and dressing separate otherwise it will get super soggy.
