meal prep

Fit meal inspiration

I prep most of my meals for the week on Sunday (breakfast, lunch, and snacks), and although I eat the same things for the week, I try to change it up every few weeks to keep it interesting. Here are some meals and snacks I’ve been enjoying recently.

tuna burgers








These tuna burgers are cheap, quick to make, and delicious! All you need is a can of tuna, a tablespoon of mayo, some spices (I like Mrs. Dash), quick oats, and an egg. I throw a slice of fat-free cheese and mustard on top and chow down.

lettuce wrap








I really enjoy taco turkey anything, and these lettuce wraps make a great lunch. I brown a pound of ground turkey in a pan, add a packet of low-sodium taco seasoning, and throw in some corn, black beans, red peppers, onions, or whatever vegetables I have on hand. When I’m at work, I spread some guacamole on a romaine lettuce leaf and then top it with the mixture. I always get comments in the kitchen on how good my lunch smells when I’m heating this mixture up. If you’re not into lettuce wraps, you could use tortillas.









Bananas and peanut butter are two of my favourite smoothie ingredients (with almond milk and chocolate protein powder), so I also love them as a snack on their own. To make this low-calorie, I use PB2 (powdered peanut butter) instead of regular peanut butter. If you’re a big PB lover like I am, this stuff will change your life. The chocolate version is also pretty delicious. If you have a sweet tooth, sprinkle a few semi-sweet chocolate chips on top for a tasty treat.

Counting Calories Doesn’t Have to be Boring

I have been counting calories using MyFitnessPal since January, and at first I was feeling quite limited in my food options. As the months have gone by, I have found some foods that I really enjoy, fill me up, and are low in calories. I want to share a few of them, in hopes of inspiring anyone in a food rut. (more…)
