After months of loose tracking and intuitive eating, I’m back on my macros this week, cutting for our wedding (100 days! Eek!). My travel isn’t making it easy, though, so I’m taking my meal prep along with me, thanks to my 6 meal ISO bag.
In the bag this week is a new lo mein-inspired dish and a forever favorite, chicken sausage alfredo “pasta”. Both are one pot meals (okay, 2 if you count the doodles) that I had packed up into containers within 20 minutes. Recipes are at the bottom of this post. Who said meal prep has to take all day?
I’ve also got tuna and crackers, light hot chocolate mix, packets of Crystal Light, and some mini Oreos. When I get to Boston, I will pick up a few Greek yogurts and breakfast in the office cafeteria each morning (2 English muffins and an egg) and that’s it!
What are you eating this week?
