My clean eating meals this week were super simple, but I have not been bored at all! During meal prep I made an enchilada casserole and it has been wonderful to eat for lunch this week. I also forgot how much I like hardboiled eggs! I’ve been having those as a snack and they are filling, yet low in calories.
Meal prep helps me to eat clean all day long without having to cook every meal. In fact, the only thing I cooked all day was the eggs at breakfast! I keep healthy foods in the fridge ready-to-eat in case I get home late or am too tired to cook.

I started the day by drinking 1/2 liter of water. Honestly, I’ve been struggling drinking the entire liter at once so I’ll drink half first thing and finish the other half after my workout. Along with water I also had 1/4 cup 1% cottage cheese mixed with a touch of protein powder, cinnamon and 1/3 banana.
6:30am – Meal #1:
Breakfast was 1 egg + 1 egg white cooked over-easy with salt and pepper. On the side I had one Thomas Whole Wheat English Muffin – half topped with peanut butter and banana while the other half was topped with cottage cheese and strawberry jam. I posted this on Instagram, but cottage cheese and jam together are wonderful! So easy, yet a great flavor combo.
For a little extra protein I had 3/4 scoop vanilla protein powder mixed with 1% milk.
9:45am – Meal #2:
My mid-morning meal was overnight oats that I made during meal prep. I topped them with sliced banana and peanut butter. My PB was super runny so it looks like a TON, but it was about 3/4 Tbsp.
12:15pm – Meal #3:
I had to go to our sales staff meeting for work and we ordered food from Santiago’s. My lunch was chicken fajitas with guacamole. The picture is awful! I was trying to sneak a pic while the meeting was going on. Under those chips there was about 2 Tbsp guacamole. I ate all the chicken & peppers, plus the guac. However, I didn’t eat the chips or the rice, but had a bite or two of the beans.
3:45pm – Meal #4:
Mid-afternoon I had 2 clementines and 4 hardboiled egg. I ate two whole eggs and two of the egg whites (I just scooped the yolk out and discarded them). It has been a while since I have hardboiled eggs and man, they are delicious!
6:30pm – Meal #5:
Dinner was super simple! I made an enchilada casserole during meal prep and since I had take-out for lunch I had a piece of the casserole for dinner. It is really good! Along with the casserole, I also had some Brussels sprouts.
Honestly, I had forgotten about my meeting on Monday while I was doing meal prep so I actually packed lunch for that day. Since I didn’t need to take it to work I ended up eating it for dinner – it was already portioned out and everything! So easy.
