Creative Fit-Meal Creations: Weekly Meal Prep Recipes Made Quick and Easy for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Living a healthyimageEasyMeal and fit lifestyle takes a lot of time, dedication and consistency. It can be hard to maintain this clean-eating lifestyle with the high demands of finding time for strength training, work, school, social and family life.

This week’s article features three recipes that can be made fast and easy, with little prep time, to aid the busy health and fitness enthusiast! Best of all, these recipes require five or less main ingredients and they are prepared in bulk so they can be easily stored for the week to help keep you on track!

Waking up early to prepare a wholesome breakfast is possibly one of the most difficult times of the day to maintain your healthy lifestyle. Many times we’re too busy trying to get our kids, spouses or ourselves ready to take on the day; or maybe you’re just trying to catch those last minutes of sleep from a busy yesterday!

My first recipe features a protein-packed egg white breakfast quiche to help keep you full and satisfied. You can prepare it over the weekend and make it last long enough to get you through the workweek! Best of all, it provides you with all the nutrition you need to get a healthy and balanced start to your day.

Next I’ve prepared two meals that are extremely quick and easy to make. I’ve added in plenty of fibrous vegetables to balance the high protein with wholesome carbs and fiber that will help keep you full throughout the day. These meals include: Mini Chili Meat Loaves and Mexijita Crockpot Chicken; both feature only four main ingredients and are spiced up with tons of flavor and little sodium!

Preparation is reduced to mixing many of the ingredients in all three of these recipes in a large bowl or crockpot and setting them aside to cook while you get things done around the house or even around town.

Now you can easily maintain your healthy and fit lifestyle without sacrificing the time spent with family and friends and the time that you need to get your daily tasks and chores completed!
