We made it to FRIDAY!!! Woot Woot!!! 
You may (or may not) have noticed I have posted far fewer pictures of myself as of late....part of the reason is because I have taken less BUT another part is I have gained about 40 pounds in the last 8 months....could be stress, definitely diet, and partly health. The ONLY person that can control this is ME. Sometimes you have to reach that ENOUGH is ENOUGH point and I am FINALLY there. SO they say your body starts in the kitchen....

SO I spent a good 4 hours in the kitchen meal prepping this week!!! One BIG mess made for healthy options for lunches and quick reason to grab "fast food" because it was quick - I already had my meals D O N E!!!

I prepped by taking everything out that I had in my fridge that could make SOMETHING...No direction, no specific "recipe" I just knew I wanted fresh, tasty and meats!
(I also made chicken "what we got" pie ie...whatever veggies we had in the fridge - leftover green beans, celery, I added lima beans {because the kids actually LOVE them} and made my own rue with sour cream, chicken stock, flour and butter because I had no cream of anything soup).

I try to maximize my time AND efficiency when I am in the kitchen....we carved pumpkins last weekend BUT I waited until Monday to roast the pumpkin seeds because I knew I'd have the oven on that day. Top left is Chicken what we got pie and obvi pumpkin seeds on bottom and right.
 A LOT of life is about presentation....when measuring and making healthy choices presentation is KEY.....

1/4 cup raw unsalted peanuts and a fresh cutie

1 medium granny smith apple, 2 tbsp peanut butter and a tbsp mini chocolate chips

I probably COULD have made my eggs ahead too (and made them into muffins instead) BUT to be honest eggs are NOT my favorite SO I'm easing my way into them!!

*Coffee with 2 tbsp Spiced Latte coffeemate
* 2 pieces of turkey bacon
*2 eggs with onion and 1 piece of turkey bacon cut into pieces
*1/2 sandwich thin round with 1 tbsp cinnamon sugar butter (because we all NEED a lil treat every now and then). 

If you are curious about WHAT I put in my meal prep containers let me know and I will respond and next time I post meal prep I'll list out what each contains! 
Buen Provecho
