When You Can’t Meal Prep

I usually meal prep twice a week. Saturdays and Wednesdays (sometimes Tuesday nights), but I unexpectedly left town over the weekend and did not have time to prep.

In the scenario, you can do a few things:

  • plan meals as your week progresses until another plan day
  • simplify meals for 3 days and be bored
  • eat whatever and start anew

Well, for me, I have been doing such a good job with my health progress, I decided to be bored with food and simplify meals. Now I don’t recommended this for a lot of people. I realize I don’t mind having terribly simple food if it meals I will be fed and be able to get back on course without a beat.

My meals for will mainly consist of sandwiches with the following:

  • Food for Life’s Ezekiel 4;9 Sprouted Grain Bread in Sesame (2 slices)
  • Black Forest Deli Ham (2oz)
  • Kraft Mayonnaise with Olive Oil (1T)
  • Yellow Mustard (1t)
  • Kraft Slim Swiss Cheese (1)

Basic nutritional info:
280 calories
20g protein
30g carbohydrates
6g fiber
1g sugar
8g fat

I have 2-3 of these sandwiches a day. I still have my breakfast of granola and a banana. My snacks are yogurt and a cup of coffee here and there.

If I am still hungry, I make an omelette with veggies.
