Take back your week -- and your sanity -- with these 9 Meal Prepping and Planning Tips for Busy Runners-- a guest post I shared on AtoZrunning.com this week!
Training, working, taking care of your family, having a life and eating well can be so hard! Since quality nutrition is such a huge component of running, though, I set out to find you the 9 Best Meal Prepping and Planning Tips in the recent guest post I did for AtoZrunning.com. Read on for the link to the article and the 2 easy and delicious recipes I share!
Figuring out what to make for dinner doesn't have to be such a painful chore, but it often is.
Believe me -- I have those days, too. When It's 7 PM and Chris asks me what I'm thinking for dinner and I say, "I have no clue."
I used to turn to frozen pizzas and macaroni and cheese when in a pinch, but now, thanks to much trial and error and experimentation I came up with my 9 Meal Planning and Prepping Tips for Busy Runners and we're eating so much healthier without any extra stress.
I would tell you about how I'm wondering about why I didn't think of this sooner, but I digress. We're all on a journey, aren't we? What matters is that I'm happy to share these tips with you and I hope they help you take back dinner too!
In addition to my meal prepping and planning tips, I also share two delicious and super easy to make meal prep recipes:
- No-Bake Granola Bars
- Sheet Pan Chicken Fajitas
I'm confident that you'll love both of these recipes because they come together with minimal fuss and are flexible. They're also gluten-free and make enough to enjoy for days to come (a meal prep lifesaver!).
And seriously, I could write a full long post about how easy and delicious those sheet pan chicken fajitas are. I swoon at the thought of them -- they're perfectly spiced with just a touch of sweet and are beyond good tucked in a toasted tortilla!
In the article, I also share ideas and ways to enjoy these recipes -- and other meal prep dishes -- later in the week so you don't get sick of eating the same thing all week.
But I'll stop blathering on now so you can get to the tips, recipes, and overall dinnertime victories!
