If there's anything I've learned about cooking and meal prepping from my weight loss, it's to shameless take shortcuts. Yes, you heard me right! The nutritionist in me is telling you to take shortcuts.
Not everything you do has to be 100% perfect all the time when it comes to meal prepping. One of my biggest hacks is buying frozen veggies. I tell meal planning clients this all the time!
I stash them in the freezer for when I'm too lazy to chop and prep fresh produce, and I use them to meal prep too! Admittedly I don't love frozen veggies as much as the real deal but hey, life is busy and I'm a firm believer that you have to be practical when it comes to food.
If you want to eat healthy and lose weight, be shameless and look for ways to make it as easy as possible. You're more likely to stay on track with your new habits forever versus one or two weeks when you figure out ways to make it fit into your lifestyle rather than trying to rearrange your entire life around it. It's not a baby, it's just food.
Okay, so I really did just compare meal prepping to a baby. But hopefully, you get what I mean. There's nothing wrong with buying frozen vegetables. Watch the video to hear my tips for what to look for and watch out for when buying them.
For this Meal Prep Sausage & Veggies recipe, I used stir-fry veggies then added my secret seasoning mix to them. I guess it's not so secret though because I have it in the recipe card. If you don't like or can't find stir-fry veggies, it's perfectly fine to substitute with your favorite green veggie mix.
For the sausage, I used turkey sausage from Jennie-O. Again, feel free to substitute with what you like or can find. The point of this meal is to give you a high protein, high vegetable meal! I paired my meal prep sausage and veggies with quinoa.
One of my favorite higher protein carbs! For my Paleo eaters, you can sub with cauliflower rice or just eat the sausage and veggies as is. It's delicious with Sriracha on top! Now listen up for the most important part!
You can eat this Meal Prep Sausage & Veggies for any meal. Yes, I said any! Lunch, dinner, or even breakfast. I love this meal mostly for breakfast though. I like topping mine with eggs, but if you're sick of eggs it's a great way to change things up and get out of a rut.
Eat meal prep sausage and veggies for breakfast and eggs for dinner. Your body will feel amazing from the switch up. Guaranteed!
