Each week, I have been trying to meal prep batches of food for the week. Most of these are really only for myself, however, the chicken breast for example, will come in handy as a weekday dinner for my family as well.
I’ve really noticed a difference in my body and it helps me stay on track with healthy eating when I do a regular meal prep.
Here is this weeks meal prep Monday menu and some of the recipes. I hope you enjoy!
- Overnight Proats
- Roasted Broccoli
- Asparagus and Mushroom Sauté
- Egg White & Spinach Bites
- Turkey Meatballs
- Roasted Bok Choy and Red Bell Peppers
- Garlic Paprika Marinated Chicken Breasts
Egg White & Spinach Bites
Cooking oil spray (I like Chosen Foods brand)
16 oz carton egg whites
2 cups of spinach, chopped
1/3 cup yellow onion, chopped
1/3-1/2 cup mozzarella cheese
salt/pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Spray a muffin pan with the cooking oil spray and use a paper towel to moisten each cell.
Add 1 teaspoon of onions and spinach to each cell.
Pour the liquid egg whites into each cell, being sure not to go too far to the top where it would spill over.
Sprinkle some of the mozzarella last to each cell then add salt and pepper.
With a fork, lightly stir the contents in each cell.
Place the tray into the oven and cook for 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and allow them to cool before scooping them out.
Store them in a Tupperware with paper towel between each egg bite to prevent them from getting soggy.
*Will keep in the fridge for up to 5 days.
