Default Meal prep

I'm a teacher and I've decided to drive Atkins diet. I weigh almost 300 pounds if not more. Does anyone have any suggestions on meal prep?

For breakfast my best suggestion is to make ahead egg cups. There are tons of recipes out there, but it's pretty simple. Take a dozen eggs; scramble them, add bacon, cheese, vegetables in desired amounts. Put in 10 or 12 muffin cups bake until firm. They can be refrigerated/frozen until you need them. Just warm up in the microwave.

Do you plan on packing a lunch every day? I would keep it simple. Boil eggs, make tuna salad or keep lunch meat/cheese. So you can easily pack a salad or meat rolled up in romaine leaves. Dinner leftovers always make a good lunch. I don't prep anything for dinner. I need to cook a meal for my family when I get home from work. But I do try to keep it simple with a roasted or grilled meat, steamed vegetables and a package of something starchy for husband/kids.

I don't prep breakfast or lunch for me though. The only thing I eat all day is a cup of coffee with cream and splenda on my way to work. Then I have a snack when I get home and dinner later. That may not work for you as a teacher, I work in an office.

If you are still looking for suggestions: I tend to make my work lunches for the week on Sunday. Example are salads (I like vegetables. I like salads.). Prep all the veggies and put them in separate tupperware/Pyrex. Each evening after work I toss what I want together. Diced chicken, bacon bits, green/red peppers, mushrooms, cucumber. Soups: I like homemade egg drop. Easy to make a big batch on Saturday or Sunday to have for the week. During the week as I make dinner I will make an extra portion or use leftovers to take to work the next day. Snacks: Use snack baggies or small containers and make enough for the entire week.

Sounds like a lot of time, but honestly it doesn't take that long and saves me a ton of time. I get up at 3:30 every morning and leave the house at 4 A.M. Not a time conducive to making food decisions. All this can easily be tailored to anyone's food preferences. It just takes a little commitment.

I prep:
Breakfast
Mid-morning snack
Lunch
Driving home snack

Good luck to you.

For meal prep, i use pinterest for inspiration to find some easy recipes. Then , on the weekend, i buy all the groceries and sundays are prep days. I write it all out on a excel spread sheet of what to eat, portion it out with scales and measuring cups and im good to go. I also plan out some healthy snacks to eat since I am known to get hungry.

breakfast is usually egg whites and spinach , or boiled eggs and bacon or tuna.

Lunch and dinner is a toss up between a protein (tuna, chicken, steak, beef) and 2-3 cups of veggies .

Good luck!!!
