Today we have two sweet potatoes, quinoa, kale, zucchini, capsicum, Avocado, sardines and chicken.
You can prep your meals in bulk, so adjust to how much you normally eat Per meal. This is the amount I need for about four days We’re going to prep the ingredients. First, then you can cook them every other day or so for Freshly cooked meals. I like to have my meals fresh, so this is the best way to have very quick, yummy, fresh meals. Also, this gives you the flexibility to change it up a little, so you don’t get bored, But if you prefer to prep and cook everything in one go, then you can do that as well.
Let’S start prepping the first ingredient I’m going to prep today is sweet. Potato because it’s takes the longest to cook, So I normally take the skin off. If it’s not organic, cut them into chips, size then soak it in cold water, but this is totally optional. You can soak it for an hour Or you can just rinse it and Pat it dry and add some oil.
If you want your sweet potato to be crispy, Then add some cornstarch before you add the oil make sure you coat them Evenly now season it with salt, if you like, but I like mine, plain with just oil, roast them in the oven for about 20 to 25 minutes at 200 degrees Celsius and flip them once in between and that’s it.
The second step is to cook quinoa, and this is super easy, Just rinse, a cup of quinoa with cold water, then add one and a half cup of water and bring it to a boil, then Bring down the heat and let it simmer for about 15 minutes And don’t forget at some salt You can also add some butter when it’s cooked now on to out third Ingredient hit up some coconut oil and fry the chicken tenderloin There is a white chicken.
Tenderloin is because you don’t have to cut them. It is really fast and easy So, while the chicken is cooking season them with salt and pepper Cook, each side for about 3 minutes And that’s a it’s super, easy and simple, you can also add other sauces from my pantry to make your chicken more tasty.
I love this jalapeno sauce because there’s no Nasties added to that and once they’re done, I let them rest on the plate for a while, so that they are not so moist when I pack them into the container and that way the chicken will last a little Bit longer and The chicken should be consumed within 4 days Now. Our fourth ingredient is capsicum.

This is totally up to your liking, But I normally have them cooked a little. Next we are going to prep our zoodles. If you don’t have a spiralizer to make zucchini noodles, You can use a peeler to make them into thin slices of zucchini noodles like Fettuccine in a way.
