My Weekly Meal Prep 8

Looking for new ideas for your weekly meal preps? You came to the right place! My hopes are these weekly meal prep posts will help you on your fitness journey. No matter how many hours you spend in the gym, without proper nutrition, you will eventually plateau. If you have ever wondered why you’re not seeing the results, you may want to look at what you’re eating. Sorry for the harsh reality check, but it’s easy to tell the difference from those with a healthy diet and those without. The good news is, once you clean up your diet you will be amazed with how quickly the results will come.

If you’re unsure about what “Meal Prepping” is check out my article called “Meal Prepping 101: Muscles Are Made In The Kitchen” for more information. Also, check out the WaterJugFitness YouTube channel for FREE meal plan videos and downloadable instructions. Lets get fit together!

Things To Note

These are just 2 of the meals I eat throughout the day. As noted, one is my post workout meal and the other is my lunch.

For example, my breakfast might be something like 2 packets of oatmeal and 2 tbsp. peanut butter. Or another example would be the Tuna sandwich I eat in the afternoon but again, it is just prepared when I’m ready to eat. Also, all of the calories are taken from My Fitness Pal, which for most part is very accurate but could vary slightly depending on who created the item.

Cooking Utensils Required

Cooking Directions

Before you begin preparing the apples, onions, and chicken pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Read: Convection ovens and Conventional ovens cook at slightly different temperatures. Convection ovens generally cook about 25 degrees hotter. If you are cooking with a Convection oven you will want to cook the chicken at 425 degrees F for 25 minutes. If you are cooking with a Conventional oven, you will want to cook the chicken at 425 degrees F for 27 – 30 minutes.

Apples

  1. In a strainer, rinse apples.
  2. With a knife cut the apple in half.
  3. Cut each half again, you will have 4 slices now.
  4. Remove the core and seeds.
  5. Cut each slice into thirds.
  6. Separate apples evenly between the two large glass baking dishes

Onion

  1. In a strainer, rinse onion.
  2. Cut each end from the onion.
  3. Proceed with cutting rings, circular onion slices.
  4. Separate onion evenly between the two large glass baking dishes.
  5. With the apple and onion slices in each baking dish, add a few splashes of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
  6. Mix apples and onions together making sure they are all covered evenly. (I mixed them together with my hands).

Chicken

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  2. In a strainer, rinse chicken.
  3. With a knife or kitchen scissors cut off any excess fat.
  4. To help the chicken cook faster, cut it in half.
  5. Place chicken in glass baking dishes over apple and onion slices. Make sure there is a small separation between each piece.
  6. Add additional seasoning, in this case salt and pepper.
  7. Place in the oven for 25 minutes.

Ready To Package!

Meal One (5 Containers)
