Molly's Meal Prep for the Week of Oct 8th

I’m getting my meal prep game on…finally.

 Crock Pot Chicken, Sautéed yams and cauliflower with Spiraled Zucchini

Crock Pot Chicken, Sautéed yams and cauliflower with Spiraled Zucchini

My plan is to prepare all of my breakfasts, snacks and lunches in advance and save our Northwest Fit Meals for our dinners because we CAN’T and we WON’T quit them!

This weeks prep went fast because I bought the zucchini pre-spiraled and the cauliflower and yams diced at PCC which saved a ton of time. Rip the bag open and dump. My kind of prep.

I prepared the crock pot chicken first (doubled the recipe for leftovers), started the HB eggs, prepared the Amish Oatmeal (doubled) and sautéed the veggies very last! I left the zucchini raw and plan to heat when I consume for my lunch this week. I probably will top most lunches with hot sauce. In regards to the Amish Oatmeal I poured 1/8 cup of Unsweetened Almond milk on top with about 2 TBS of blueberries. If I find that I want more protein I might add a little SFH or Mountain Ops vanilla protein powder to the oatmeal or top with Ellenos Greek Yogurt

  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

  • 1 tsp.  onion powder

  • 1 tsp. oregano

  • 1 tsp. black pepper

  • Optional: 1 tbs. balsamic vinegar or hot sauce to dribble on top

  • extra virgin olive/coconut oil spray bottle

INSTRUCTIONS

In a gallon ziplock bag, combine brussels sprouts, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano and pepper. SHAKE to mix all ingredients evenly.

Preheat a skillet on medium heat for 30-60 seconds then spray the olive oil and toss in the veggie mix.  Optional: drizzle Balsamic vinegar or hot sauce when serving

All-Purpose Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken

A versatile, all-purpose shredded chicken that is made in the slow cooker. Perfect for making ahead and freezing until ready to use. Great for soups, stews, quesadillas and quick sandwiches.

Ingredients

  • 4 organic, boneless skinless chicken breasts

  • 1/2 cup chicken stock

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1/2 dried oregano teaspoon

  • Optional: Add a twist of flavor by adding 1-2 bottles of coconut aminos and 3 TBS ginger to the pot

Instructions

Place chicken in slow cooker. Sprinkle chicken breasts with all the spices. Add chicken stock. Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours. Shred chicken with two forks. Cool completely and if you want to freeze, divide into ziplock baggies. This makes just about six cups total and I like to the shredded chicken into three portions with two cups each.
