Meal Prep Sunday: What I’m eating this week

I’m always preaching about the benefits of meal prep. It really helps me stay on track, especially in terms of snacking.

This week I made some lamb kebabs with a carrot and mustard seed salad, and two portions of chicken with artichokes, rocket and quinoa. I got the recipe from this month’s Women’s Health Magazine – it’s so tasty and simple to make!

You’ll need:

  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 lemon
  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 4 artichoke hearts
  • A handful of rocket
  • 20g Parmesan
  • 250g precooked quinoa

Mix the chicken with half the lemon, oil and garlic and place in the oven for 30 minutes at 180c

Meanwhile mix the quinoa, rest of the lemon, artichoke hearts and rocket.

When the chicken is cooked, place it on top of the salad and add some shaved Parmesan.

I also whipped up some coconut slices for me to keep my sugar cravings at by – let me know if you want the recipe for them!

Fix me a snack?

I’m not exactly a die-hard clean eater, on a Friday night you’ll probably find me with a slice of pizza in one hand and a glass of red wine in the other. But come Saturday morning I’ll be fuelling up on avocado toast, getting ready for a long session at the gym.

If you’re anything like me you’re constantly thinking about your next meal and can’t make it through the day without snacking. This has been the biggest change in my diet by far and one that hasn’t been easy!

So without further ado, here are my go to snacks:
