Four Ingredient "Veri Veri" Teriyaki Shrimp and Soba

Four Ingredient "Veri Veri" Teriyaki Shrimp and Soba

This is one of my favorite meal prep treats and it's literally one of the easiest to make. My partner and I were getting tired of our old lunchtime standbys (chicken salad, meat loaf, salmon). Sometimes you just want something that tastes as good as Chinese takeout or ramen but that won't leave you feeling gross and bloated. Try this quick one that only has FOUR ingredients and can be prepped and stored for easy lunches or dinners during the week.

Many of my clients and followers want to eat healthy and are trying to make changes to their diets to reduce body fat or gain muscle mass. While your exercise program is key to eliciting physical changes, your nutrition is equally as important.

These are my two favorite meal deliver services that won't disappoint.

Peter's Turkey Sauté with Tomato Sauce and Veggies

Peter's Turkey Sauté with Tomato Sauce and Veggies

It's no secret. The men of my household take meal prep seriously. And my partner Peter is the captain of our good ship Tasty Noms. Clients are always asking for quick, easy and healthy recipes that won't break the bank. And just last week a fellow massage student pal of mine looked longingly over her peanut butter sandwich at my salmon, sweet potatoes and steamed broccoli and asked "how do you do it?!" Based on the popularity of my recent turkey meat loaf recipe I thought I'd share one of my favorites from Chef Peter: turkey sauté with tomato sauce and veggies.

Mom's Meatloaf Remixed

Mom's Meatloaf Remixed

Meatloaf has a bad reputation. Granted, the name "meatloaf" is kind of funky. But in my house, meatloaf is a weekly favorite. It's high in lean protein, low in saturated fat and very easy to make. It's perfect for dinners at home or lunches on the go. It lasts for several days in the fridge and can also be frozen. And it's f*cking delicious. Heat this up at work and your coworkers will drool over your shoulder while asking what smells so good. You'll be like the Pied Piper of Hamelin, But with meat. Settle down there, vegetarians. Sub the meat for tofu and the recipe still totally works.

Try This Instead of That... "Homemade" Burrito Bowl vs. Chipotle

Try This Instead of That... "Homemade" Burrito Bowl vs. Chipotle

I didn't set out to dis Chipotle with this post. I have tons of family, friends and clients who love Chipotle. And yes, I agree, it's a "better" option than a lot of fast food places. But the calories, carbs, saturated fat and sodium can quickly add up at Chipotle even when you customize your own burrito bowl there. So I offer you this "homemade" alternative which takes less than five minutes from start to finish to throw together (including the two minutes it takes to microwave) and has fewer calories, less fat, fewer carbs, WAY less sodium and more protein than Chipotle.

Meal Prepping 101: The Easy Way to Start Eating Better

So you finally accepted that eating out for breakfast, lunch and dinner makes it nearly impossible to reach your fitness and health goals?

Congrats. Acceptance is the first step. The next step is getting onboard with meal prepping and it doesn’t have to be as complicated or laborious as you think.
