If you haven't heard, we're launching our very own Run Fast Eat Slow Meal Planner just in time for the holidays!
It's a 52-week meal planner and journal for athletes with new recipes to inspire you to cook more, create nutrition-packed meal plans, and keep track of your progress.
I've been personally loving it and wanted to share with you all an example of what goes down at my apartment on Sundays. Enjoy!
The Meal Plan
When planning out my meals, I always like to include a soup, a grain salad, and power bowls (grain+protein+vegetable+sauce+toppings), and some snacks/breakfast options.
I'll usually then supplement on Wednesday by making another meal or soup and maybe some more roasted vegetables if I'm running low.
The Meal Prep Plan
I always like to have a plan of attack before my Sunday meal prep starts. By organizing what you have to cook into categories by cooking method, you can get multiple things going at the same time for maximum efficiency. Plus you get to cross things off as they're done, my favorite part!
A Happy Fridge!
