New year, new you.
It’s a phrase we’ve all heard (and rolled our eyes too). Truth is – many of us (including myself) want to make this year about improving our overall health.
I’ll be honest and say that improving my health was my goal last year as well, but I only did it for so long. This year, I truly feel committed to a healthier lifestyle. My husband and I joined a fabulous gym, booked personal training sessions and have begun to improve our diet.
I’ve found when you’re trying to eat healthier, it’s way easier to plan out every meal. If you plan out your meals, junk food and sweet treats aren’t as tempting. Unfortunately, meal planning (for the most part) is not as fun as it sounds. Spoiler alert: you may have to skip a Netflix binge :(.
On Monday, I spent the day in the kitchen preparing snacks, dinners, and lunches for both my husband and I for the rest of the week.
Our lunch this week – Chicken Burrito Bowls.
A word of warning – if you’re going to make this recipe make sure you cook your rice first (if you haven’t already). Since it doesn’t list it as a step in the recipe, I always forget!
If you haven’t cooked rice before – just know it takes a hot minute (like an hour).
The recipe is SUPER SIMPLE. All you need to do is take chicken, peppers and a red onion – season them and pop them into the oven for 25 minutes. When they’re done you’ll take them out to start assembling your bowl with a variety of other ingredients.
Here’s the final product. It’s simple, healthy and delicious!
Do you meal prep? If so, have any good recipes?
