I DON’T eat McDonald’s
Chicken Salad Meal Prep
Tasty! Tasty! Lunchtime convenience!
➡️ Rachel’s Tips:
I REALLY prefer golden raisins over the typical raisins we all grew up with.
Golden raisins are much more plump, and juicy, with a more delicious, fruitier, lighter flavor.
Have you tried them yet?
When choosing healthier crackers:
Read the ingredients label.
There are varieties made out of oatmeal, sprouted oat flours, and even nuts these days that are all great options.
The very most important thing is that your crackers do NOT contain partially hydrogenated oils.
Also, look for no added sugar.
I’m constantly asked WHY I believe so strongly in food prepping.
“How do you eat the same thing day after day?”
“Do you eat it cold?”
“How does it taste the next day?”
“I could never do that”
Guys, I don’t SURVIVE on prepped ahead meals alone, I DO try to make something fresh each day, and I’m constantly mixing things up.
There are many levels to meal preparation, and you’ll figure out what works best for YOU. How I can best explain, is telling you What I DON’T do because I have something to grab ready-to-go:
I DON’T eat McDonald’s
I DON’T eat from a vending machine
I DON’T grab a donut because I’m starving
I DON’T have extreme energy drops in the afternoon
I DON’T feel bloated throughout the day
I DON’T wonder what is in my food
I DON’T stress about what I’m eating
I DON’T have extreme weight fluctuations
I DON’T eat candy because I’m constantly satisfied with real food
I DON’T overthink
I DON’T binge eat…ever…simply because I’ve learned to EAT, real food, and OFTEN enough throughout the day to stay LEVEL and satisfied.
I DON’T pay for “food” that is completely void of nutrients
I DON’T believe there is any perfect way of eating, but I DO like the POWER I give to myself by planning and preparing a bit every week
As you are prepping ahead…please focus on the POWER this gives you, and not what you’re giving up, because I promise it’s a small sacrifice for feeling FREE in your body, mind, and health for LIFE!
