What I Ate Wednesday - Meal Prep Meals

Happy Wednesday! This week is just flying by and my first 5k is getting scarily close. When writing today's post, I realized that while I've been pretty good at documenting my meal prep ideas, I've been terrible at sharing what I actually eat during the week (except on Instagram). So here's a look at my favorite ways to eat some typical meal-prepped foods.

Shredded Chicken

Pretty much can't get any easier than making shredded chicken in the slow cooker and you know I like easy so I make this a lot. It's also really versatile and I'm sure you could make a lot of super complicated recipes using this as a base. I'm pretty lazy though, so this is how I normally eat it.

On top of salad. This one had smashed avocado and quinoa:


Mixed with cottage cheese, shredded zucchini, and garlic and served with veggies:


Stuffed in a sweet potato and topped with hummus:


Marinated Baked Tempeh

For one of my meatless meal preps, I baked and marinated tempeh for my main protein. Maybe because tempeh was a new ingredient for me, or because the bf was out of town and I had some time to kill, but I was more creative using this meal prep than normal.

In a giant miracle noodle bowl with lots of veggies:


In a salad with sweet potatoes and topped with a little apple cider vinegar:


In these awesome tempeh hand rolls:


Turkey Meatballs or Muffins

The turkey meatballs and turkey meatloaf muffins I've made are yummy eaten whole, but are also really great to crumble up and use in other recipes.

Served with spaghetti squash for lightened up but still delicious comfort food:


Instead of ground beef in a skinny and delicious shepherd's pie:


 Making a meal out of kale, sweet potato, and white bean soup:
