Protein Packed Meal Prep Lunch Kits will help you eat healthy. Her are some of our awesome tips and recipes to get Protein packed into your lunch.
Hi there! It’s Shauna from Ella and Annie. Honestly, if I didn’t meal prep for my week, I’d miss so many meals. Trying to keep up with work, kids, after school activities and feed my family of 5, has my head spinning daily! Meal prepping is my way of having some sort of “control” over my week. I also find that I take better care of myself; happy mom, happy home! Today I want to share with you a few protein packed lunch kits that will keep your body going throughout your busy day. Eating smaller meals every 3 hours will keep you from feeling sluggish. I generally eat these lunch kits after I workout to give my system a boost.
The meatball protein packed meal prep lunch kits are made with the chicken Aidell’s meatballs from Costco. There are 3 meatballs per 1 serving. I added a hard boiled organic egg (I make these in big batches for all my lunch kits Monday-Friday). There is 1 ounce of colby jack cheese (1 cheese stick cut into cubes). I like to use my mini scale (super cheap from Walmart) to weigh my meat, veggies and fruit. This gives me a more accurate idea of the calories I am eating and what a good portion size looks like.
We have 2 ounces of red seedless grapes and 2 ounces of organic baby carrots (also a large bag from Costco). The last item is the Planter’s deluxe Pistachio mix; measure out 1 ounce. All the ingredients in bold are packed with protein! A few tips: separate the food using cupcake liners, preferably the foil or silicone liners; the paper liners can become damp when stored. Arrange all in a 25 ounce square tupperware. Store containers in fridge for up to 5 days.
