Food Prep Ideas: Bake entire bag of boneless/skinless chicken bag (from frozen) on a cookie sheet. Once cooleddice half of the chicken into small cube sized pieces and store in a gallon size zip lock bag in refrigerator. Shred the other half of chicken and store in separate zip lock bag. For quick snacks and to add into meals- cut fresh broccoli off the stalk and store in refrigerator. Brown 3 lbs of ground beef or ground turkey in a skillet and drain grease. Divide into 1lb bags. Store in Refrigerator. Cut a spaghetti squash in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds. Drizzle insides with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place cut side down on baking sheet and poke a few holes with fork to vent. Bake in oven at 400 for 30 to 40 minutes. Use a fork to scrape the strands starting from the outside and working in, fluffing as you go. (you can use zucchini as well) Refrigerate squash in a Tupperware or zip lock bag for easy access up to 5 days. I highly recommend getting a food chopper for minced garlic and chopped veggies. I use mine all the time and it’s AMAZING! I got one at Ruler Foods for under $10 and it works wonders. It’s also very easy to clean! Meals #1.
