The kids are back to school!!! This is such a bittersweet time of year. On one hand I’m going to miss our lazy days of summer. We had such a great summer and spent lots of quality time together. But on the other hand I’m ready for all of us to be back on a schedule. It felt great to get them to school, get a work out in, and then work work work without interruption.
Believe me, you are going to appreciate that I’m back on a schedule too because I have lots of ideas floating in my head that you will love. One of those ideas is a meal prep course that I’ve been dying to create all summer. I know it’s going to take me a while to push that out but I know once the course is done it’ll be great. Before that course debuts you will first see a new OYS “getting started” power package. That’s close to being done and I’m super excited for it. I’ll talk more about that in a couple weeks.

Let’s get to my meal plan.
Meal prep this week was easy for me. I have a bunch of meals in the freezer that I made over the last couple months so I didn’t really need to cook a whole lot. Mostly, I just needed to grab food for the kids lunches and make sure I have all my essentials on hand (fruit for smoothies, eggs, nuts, and some other things).
This week and moving forward I plan to keep my food on the low carb side. Simply put, I just feel better when I eat more vegetables and proteins and keep the carbs to minimum. Not to mention I look better too. So instead of crying over pasta and pizza I will keep those as special treats and fill the rest of my diet with food that fill me up without making me bloat out like a balloon.
I know my meal plan looks super boring but 1. I don’t have the time this week to cook up a bunch of different foods. 2. I want to eat up what we have in the freezer. 3. This is what works for me. If I get bored I can always switch it up but it’s easier for me to stay on track when my food is simple and easy.

Egg white omelet with chicken sausage (I like the garlic flavor from al fresco)
- I made 3 smoothies ahead of time and will keep them in the refrigerator.
- Omelets will be made the day of.
- I made the tuna salad today and will probably make another batch in a few days. I keep it stored in a glass pyrex container in the refrigerator.
- I made the buffalo chicken last week in the slow cooker. I used some in buffalo macaroni and cheese and portioned out the rest for subs.
- Everything else is in the freezer.
Peppers and hummus
- eggs were made today.
- peppers were cut up today and stored in a pyrex container.
