Meal preppin’ like a boss here.
I have been preaching it here for a while now on The Kitcheneer, but meal prep is no joke. It is a literal life saver every day and keeps us on track towards our goals.
And my goals are: beach bod.
Which is why I decided to actually utilize the nutritional info on my recipes from here on out. So if you are tracking your calories or macros just look below (if mobile) or on the left hand side of the screen if desktop.
Now that I have established my food freedom via the Whole30, I have decided to tighten the reigns on portion control. I feel as if I have plateaued and need to reset my nutrition a tad to continue down the path to my goals. Which is to be lean and mean (jk it’s sorta impossible for me to be mean).
Jake and I just finished our second half marathon and we are sort of pooped today. But it’s the good kind of pooped. You know?
And being around all those super crazy runners and Marines inspired me even more to eat and train well.
Which brings us to these Chicken Caprese Bowls. Because bowl food.
And Italian food is sort of my favorite. You know I love recreating my favorites to fit my needs ;).
Bowl food simply makes meal prepping a breeze.
Protein + Greens + Healthy Carb + Healthy Fat = Done!
This bowl took about 25 minutes to make and that equals 4 lunches for the week! Even quicker if you have cooked up a batch of quinoa already.
The chicken is marinated in the 2 tbs of olive oil, balsamic vinegar, lemon juice, oregano, and garlic.
The spinach is tossed in a bowl with basil. Then just toss in some cherry tomatoes, red onion, mozzarella pearls, olives, and a little toasted bread.
Caprese is one of my favorite Italian dishes and I love changing it up to fit my healthy lifestyle.
Each bowl is only 334 calories and done in less than 30 minutes!
Pretty much perfect bowl meal prep on a Sunday. And now you have 4 lunches for your work week!
Let me know if you are liking the meal prep posts! I plan on doing a lot more and even adding a meal planning feature to the blog! Stay tuned!
