It’s been awhile since I posted a recipe. Let’s be real, it’s been awhile since I actually meal prepped. And when I say “actually” … I mean that last week for lunch I had a microwaved chicken brat + steamed brussel sprouts that came out of a bag. 🙂 Hey – it’s better than not prepping anything at all, right?
I went to a concert last night in Madison so I took off of work today. I have a wedding to go to tomorrow up in Green Bay, and the Packer game is on Sunday. (WHOOHOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!) So I decided that I needed to be super productive today – and I was. I have not had a day to myself where I’ve actually gotten shit done in SO long. I cleaned the entire house: dusted, swept, vacuumed, dishes, garbages, windows, etc. I cleaned out my car. I took the dog on a 2 mile walk. I did a 21-Day-Fix workout at home. I MEAL PREPPED!
It look me literally the entire day to get all this stuff done but now I am finally showered and ready to do NOTHING tonight (weird, right?). I may have some company over for a bit but that’s about it. Keepin it low-key on a Friday, yafeelme?
Anyway, back to this meal prep business. First and foremost I will say that I did NOT come up with this recipe. It was given to me by a good friend, Nikki, who raves about it (and makes it) all the time.
I love riced cauliflower. I’ve been buying it pre-riced lately.. with the intent on making something fun with it, but I always end up just boiling it and mashing it like potatoes because that’s the easiest and fastest thing to do.
I had everything for this recipe in the house already so I didn’t even have to leave prior to my meal prep. Double win.
Here’s what you will need:
- 1.5 – 2lbs chicken, diced
- 1 bag of frozen veggies (mine was a mix of carrots, peas, corn and beans)
- 1/3 c. Coconut aminos (truthfully you can use more or less, but for WW points purposes, this is the amount I used)
- 1 -12oz bag of riced cauliflower (or do it yourself if you’re feelin like an overachiever)
- 2 eggs, scrambled (again, feel free to add more if you could care less about points)
Start by greasing a pan and “frying” your cauliflower rice (aka, make it brown). This takes awhile to do, so I would start it before cooking your chicken. Cook the chicken in a separate pan.
Add a hungry dog.
Just kidding about that one. I had quite the company today while I prepped. It made for an easy kitchen floor sweep later, though. 😉
Once everything is cooked, you can mix the two together and add the veggies. Nikki told me to add the veggies frozen, but I had a steamable bag so I cooked them in the microwave before I added them. To each their own.
Then you can add the aminos and the scrambled eggs.
Mix everything together a bit more to make sure it’s all fully saturated. At this point, everything should be cooked so you’re really just letting the aminos soak in. Viola!
Yes, I did post this on my Snapchat.
Fairly quick and easy. I divided this into 5 servings, each one was about a heaping cup. With that, it was 4 PP per serving. And it’ll be a delicious lunch throughout the week.
