    Meal Prep Sunday Tips and Recipes

    Taking time out of your Sunday (or whatever day is your free day during the week) to prep your meals for the week is going to be the best way to keep you on track to hit your goals. I’ve been doing meal prep Sunday consistently for the past three years and I get better at it every week. Prepping meals is also a great way to save money – if you already have meals at home or ready to take with you to work, you’re going to less likely to sway away from those meals and go out for lunch. Also, having a prepared lunch with you at work…

    Shrimp Scampi with Zucchini Noodles

    Recipe of the week is back! I’m not going to commit to posting a new recipe every single week, but I’m going to do my best to post a new recipe at least twice a month. As I promised in my first Meal Prep Sunday post of 2017, because I got this Spiralizer for Christmas I have many zoodle recipes coming. I already shared my Marinara Zoodle recipe in that same post and I’m still loving it, but I made this shrimp scampi recipe last weekend and it brought me back to my childhood. I used to love pasta and shrimp scampi when I was in my teens, but I haven’t…

    Tofu Tacos | Recipe of the Week

    How many taco recipes can I share until it’s too many taco recipes? I would say none! I love tacos and I have a bunch of recipes for them. Just a few weeks I saw this book on Instagram called Dragons Love Tacos which is just about the cutest thing ever. Also, since yesterday was Cinco de Mayo, this is appropriate right? Lately, we’ve been having tacos on a weekly basis at home, and honestly I could eat them everyday. This is recipe I threw together because I had most of the ingredients already in the fridge and wanted to use them up. I had a half of a full cube…

    Salmon Tortilla Soup | Recipe of the Week

    Last week I was putting together a salad with some of the store bought packaged salmon, and on the back of the Chicken of the Sea package I saw this recipe: salmon tortilla soup. Done! I always see chicken tortilla soup recipes floating around on Pinterest, but since I don’t eat chicken I’ve never made any of them. Sure I could make them vegetarian style with beans or tofu, but I feel like it just wouldn’t be the same. I love salmon though, I always have, even when fish wasn’t in my diet so this was the perfect replacement. Making meals with my Crock Pot is my favorite ways to cook and…

    Chipotle Shrimp Tacos

    This week was not one my best in terms of sticking to macros or meal plans because I didn’t really plan anything in advance. I got back from my LA vacation late Sunday evening so there was no time for meal prepping. I had made a few extra salmon meals the week before leaving, but that wasn’t quite enough for the whole week. My prepped meals are usually for lunches so I was at a loss for what to make for dinner. Luckily I had some frozen shrimp that I picked up a few weeks ago and some tortillas in the fridge – shrimp tacos it was! I love tacos.…
