Your Step-by-Step Meal Prep & Chill Guide
Make it fun, girl! Invite friends (your #TIUBIKINISERIES accountability buddy!), turn on the music, then pour yourselves a glass of wine or kombucha. There’s plenty of time to enjoy yourself while you prep veggies, grill protein and portion out snacks for the next few days. For everyone following the 8 Week Bikini Edition of the Nutrition Plan, we make it easy with grocery lists and suggestions for Meal Prep!
Get lunches ready for the work week! Pair greens with veggies, quinoa, avocado and some lean protein. If you’re making mason jar salads, add dressing first so greens stay crispy.
It’s essential to prep your protein ahead of time. This way you have it ready to go for lunches and quick snacks throughout the week. We like to grill chicken and bake salmon to have on hand. You can also prepare beans, quinoa and tempeh for meat-free protein options. Just top on your KandKale Salad and you’re good to go!
DIPS & DRIZZLES
Dress up those greens, beautiful… you deserve zesty, tasty, decadent salads! Make a couple batches of your favorite Tone It Up Nutrition Plan dressings to have on hand—one for home and one for the office! Be sure to also stock up on good dressing containers like these to take on-the-go!
Overnight oats are a busy girl breakfast staple. Make it the night before in a mason jar and grab it to enjoy en route the next morning! Simply mix raw oats with almond milk, cinnamon, salt and a little maple syrup in a mason jar… seal and place it in the fridge the night or day before.
PERFECT THE PARFAIT
Another easy morning meal is a parfait made with layered fruit and almond yogurt! You can make this ahead of time too and store it in a mason jar for brekky!
FREEZE Yo ‘NANAS!
This is hands-down the best tip for creamy, delicious smoothies! Using sliced, frozen bananas takes your smoothie game way up! Keep them in a zip lock bag or glass container in the freezer.
PREP FOR PANCAKES (OR WAFFLES!)
YES, you can make Perfect Fit Pancakes or waffles ahead of time! Double or triple the recipe and make a big batch to keep covered in the refrigerator. Simply warm them up in the toaster oven or pop them in the toaster when you’re ready to eat!
This is our go-to for staying hydrated! Fruit infused water simply tastes amazing, plus you’re also giving your body natural electrolytes… perfect post-workout! Simply fill a pitcher with fresh water, sliced lemons, cucumbers, fresh mint and whatever other seasonal goodies you have on hand!
For the BIKINI SERIES, we love making BIKINI PUNCH!
