Sounds like a CRAZY amount of restrictions. Some days my brain is totally wiped ๐Ÿ˜… from brainstorming and looking for new recipes and planning for meals. Thank goodness for the Internet’s recipe book and those hypnotizing Tasty videos that have helped inspire me to keep creating and experimenting with new food everyday. Otherwise, I would have nothing to post of my Facebook page ๐Ÿ˜
Dinner meals are most challenging to plan for me because of the VAST dietary needs of our family but I am determined to make it less challenging by PUSHING ON and just trying new things everyday! That is how I will get BETTER! Like Autumn in 21 Day Fix says, “It doesn’t get easier, you get better.”



My lunches for the week have changed a lot since I’ve started my fitness and clean eating journey. I used to have a lot of sandwiches (mmmm..bread) and not a whole lot of veggies (I am a veggie HATER.. I will dedicate a whole post to that). This week’s lunch is a simple one. A homemade veggie burger (From the Oh She Glows! cookbook or find it HERE)ย on a bed of lettuce with some sliced cucumbers for style. Not bad for a veggie hater ๐Ÿ˜‰ Then I have a two eggs that are boiled to PERFECTION (I am a boiled egg enthusiast and can and will talk to you about boiling methods anytime, anywhere). Top with a GENEROUS amount of Sriracha, and you’ve got yourself a meal worth having every single day of the week! ๐Ÿ˜„

Lunch in Fix Containers –>

Bed of lettuce and cucumbers: 2.5 greens

Homemade veggie burger: 1 yellow, 1 Orange

Best boiled eggs: 1 red

Sriracha: FREE seasoning! Use as you please ๐Ÿ˜‹

Meal Prep time –>

Veggie burgers: 1 hour total (30 mins prepping and 30 mins baking)

Salad prep: 5 mins (washing cutting and container-ing)

Boiled eggs: 15 mins (bring to a boil, let sit and peel)
About an hour and twenty minutes total. Prep once and eat healthy all week long!!! โค๏ธ

Did anyone else prep a meal this week? Let me see it! I want to see what you’re eating. ๐Ÿ˜

    Hey Corinne! Question for ya! How many pre lunch meals (esp ones with cut produce) stay fresh for you? How many do you make? And also what do you think of the oats in the veggie pattie?ใƒพ(๏ผ โŒ’ใƒผโŒ’๏ผ )ใƒŽ

      Hi Nicole! Good question. I can make up to five lunches at a time it all stays pretty fresh for me. I like the convenience of having it all ready because even on the days when I’m not at work, I can get pretty busy with Narra and forget to eat. This prevents me skipping a meal because it’s all ready to go. I know some people who will do max 3 days of meal prep because of the spoilage. It all depends on what I’m making. ๐Ÿ˜Š I will definitely make another batch of boiled eggs during the week. I go through them pretty quickly.

      The oats in the veggie patties are awesome!! If you use a quick cooking oat that is very fine, there is no need to pulverize it into oat flour. That is what I did. I also skipped the bread crumbs.

      Are you thinking of making it? ๐Ÿ˜Š
