Meal Prep and Recipes for Hammer & Chisel

So, I have been an active Beachbody "worker-outer" since 2013. So, could somebody freaking tell me why I never did food prep until now?! Oh, yeah, probably because it took LIKE SIX EFFING HOURS! Wow. Disclaimer: I was completely unprepared and I didn't have enough food and I maybe kinda sorta made my husband run to Sam's Club to buy matching Tupperware bc anal retentive.

Next week, I will plan better AND I have a better idea of just how much food is actually needed. So, don't let me scare you off with the first paragraph. Today was proof enough that it was completely worth it. I know for sure I would have made some bad meal choices if I hadn't been as prepared for the day as I was.

This is just wild caught salmon with the Southwest Seasoning from my last post found HERE 

Honestly, I didn't have a recipe for this one. Oftentimes, I don't use recipes and just wing it. I used 2 large chicken breasts from a local butcher (The Local Pig) One container of Chobani PLAIN Greek Yogurt (brand does not matter as long as it is plain, and Greek, and ON SALE) and about 1/8 cup of tabasco sauce. I baked the chicken in this dish, covered, on 350 until they were done (no, I didn't time it) and then I shredded it, mixed it all up and baked it a little longer because it was runny. I divvied it up into red containers because both chicken and Greek Yogurt are proteins and the Tabasco sauce was a "freebie" 

These examples are of what a day looks like on the Fix or H&C Meal Plan 

I use EVERY container possible so, you bet your britches I use the orange one even though I don't do salad (these are most commonly used for dressing). So, I added Chia Seeds to my shake, because PROTEIN! 

This is the Southwest Turkey Burger that was simply made with the aforementioned Southwest Seasoning and some diced tomatoes with Jalapeno, canned, drained, and dumped on top! 

Salmon as pictured above and some frozen Broccoli, Spinach, Cauliflower, and Quinoa mix. I bought it a Sam's in a huge bag and it seriously only took 4 minutes to steam in the microwave! EASY PEASY!
