Meal prep questions? Any bikini competitors??
July of last year I decided to start working out seriously with the goal in mind of one day getting my body to the condition it needs for a competition.
I'm stronger, more toned and definitely more confident than I was a year ago. With that being said, I feel mentally ready to get really serious about competing, yay! If there is someone with information about bikini competitions in general, I'd love to have a conversation.
But more so, ANYONE with meal prep ideas.
-How many meals do you prep in advance, how do you store it.
I just like to have as much information as possible lol. So anything and everything is already appreciated. Thank you
I prep 5 meals for my lunches. All chicken breast, boiled. And with a side of veggies. I store them in Tupper ware and keep them cool in the fridge, never frozen. I use to make sandwiches but I found it hard to get accurate count of calories and macros. Hope this helps you a little.
Thank you, your information definitely helps.
I'm a sucker for pancakes and/or oats. So mason jars have been life savers for breakfast. I'll put all my dry ingredients in there so they're ready and measured so I know make exact macros. Add water and I'm done. Oats as well. I have Pyrex bowls with lids I'll measure out my oats, my PB2, or what ever other dry ingredients I want, then I'll take an uncooked unboiled eggs and set it down in there to protect the shell. Grab and go in the morning for lunch.
For all my other meals it's pretty much the same. I'll cook things that can last a few days in the fridge. I'll make sure everything is balanced with carbs fats and protein. I usually do my meal preps on Sunday and Wednesday nights as like to prep 3 days at a time. Stops things from getting too boring I think.
Also every night I make sure I prepare all my dry ingredients for a protein shake snack if and when I need it in my day. Already have my protein, granola,and PB2 crushed and blended ,and a thingy of yoplait yogurt to the side. Add my milk yogurt ice and the like , shake and go.
Thus completes my dissertation on the matter. Lol
