Wouldn't it be nice if you could eat healthy, nutrient dense food for under 3 dollars a plate? Well, you can!
Enter: The Art of Meal Prep.
Meal prepping is something athletes and bodybuilders have been doing for a long time. When most of us think of it, we imagine tupperwear containers full of chicken, rice, and broccoli. A repetitive cycle of pallet masochism containing the most bland food possible. While there's nothing wrong with this style of eating, I prefer more creativity in my prep.
Today I'm going to reveal to you my top three recipes. Each one of these are extremely easy to make, incredibly healthy, delicious, and will give you a ton of bang for your buck!
Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo:
2 lbs Frozen Chicken
2 jars of Alfredo Pasta Sauce
8 oz of Cheddar Cheese
3-4 oz of Parmesan Cheese
One-two Crowns of Chopped Broccoli
5 oz Bag of Raw Spinach
1 teaspoon of Garlic Powder
Noodles or Rice
*Place all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on high for 4 hours. Make rice or noodles separately and either add them or store in separate containers.
Coach Bryan's Custom Chili of Greater Healthiness:
1.5 Pounds of Ground Beef or Turkey
Diced Celery (liberal quantities)
5 oz bag of Raw Spinach
1 can of Mild Chili Pinto Beans
4-6 Diced Whole Jalapenoes
1 Chili Pepper
2 Cloves of Garlic
1 Teaspoon of Chili Powder
Pinches of Parsley, Salt, Basil, and Oregeno
1 Tablespoon of Black Pepper
Pepper Sauce of Your Choice (optional, I prefer Texas Pete)
1 Tablespoon of Cinnamon
*Place all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on high for 4-5 hours.
Three Cheese Broccoli Soup
Half a brick of Kerrygold Butter
One Cup of Flour
Can of Evaporated Milk
One Carton of Chicken Broth
20-30 oz of Broccoli (frozen is okay!)
1 cup of Parmesan Cheese
1.5 cups of Cheddar Cheese
8 oz of American Cheese
Pinch of Salt
Black Pepper to Taste
*Cook everything minus the cheese for about 3 hours on high. Add cheese and let cook for another hour or two.
And that's it! Each of these recipes will yield around 8-10 servings. Try out one of these delicious meals and let me know what you think!
In Strength, Coach Bryan
