This grocery list & meal prep was created during a time when I really wanted to step my life up in every way! I think it shows in the intention to portion, variety of vegetables, and just the overall beauty of this dish. We always hear the saying “you should eat a colorful plate” and that’s because when you do, you’re bound to be taking in a great deal of vitamins and nutrients that your body needs to thrive.
This dinner consists of: roasted broccoli and tomatoes with shrimp pasta (squash and peppers dressed with olive oil, lemon juice, and Italian seasoning.)(2) Adobo chicken with quinoa (brown rice mix) and beans.
I’m not playing with my gains, I suggest you don’t either!
I decided to try something a little different this week with the squash. I was nervous to see what came of it but it was delicious. I spent $64 at Target on the following things:
1. Boiled eggs
3. Protein bars
5. Chicken breasts
7. Whole wheat pasta
12. 2 Lemons
