Meal prep so easy you'll want to start meal prepping all of the time! This week's lunches are turkey burgers, green beans and mashed sweet potatoes and I'm pretty sure mashed sweet potatoes are a game changer for me. Where have I been and why have I never done this until now?? Price breakdown: 2 lbs of ground turkey at 4.99 a lb=$10, 1 massive sweet potato: $3, 1/2 onion+ handful of spinach=$1, 2 bags of green beans: $5 =about $19 for the week! For the turkey burgers: β€’take the ground turkey and put it in a bowl with 1/2 diced onion and 1 handful of chopped spinach. Add whatever seasoning you want (I added salt and garlic powder!) * form patties and cook on a skillet (medium high heat, with coconut oil) or grill them! For the mashed sweet potatoes: * peel and dice sweet potato into large chunks and place in a pot of water, letting it boil and cook the potatoes until fork tender (-15 min). Once they're tender, drain the water and start mashing them with a fork. Add 1/2 table spoon of coconut oil, 1/4 cup of milk (add this slowly and a little at a time, you may not need it all) a pinch of salt and some cinnamon to taste! For the green beans all I did was steam them until tender, tossed them in some olive oil and sprinkled salt and garlic powder on them! I spent the day vlogging my grocery shopping trip and meal prep so keep your eyes peeled for the video- coming soon! πŸ’• . . . . . #paleofood #mealprepsunday #mealprepdaily #fitfood #foodprep #fooddiary #mealplan #foodplan #portionsizes #wholefoods #paleorecipes #eattogrow #gymfuel #healthyfood #macros #iifym #healthy #macrocounting #absaremadeinthekitchen #flexibledieting #fitfam #protein #bbgprogress #healthylifestyle #homecooking #healthyfoodporn #foodjournal

Selamat pagi... Judulnya #sarapanpagi kali ini ya...makan #bakmienak yang juga #recommended di daerah #kulinerkelapagading ... Tapi berhubung lauknya yang 'super duper menyebar' kemana-mana...alhasil ya... mie nya sendiri sudah tak terlihat... Tapi, no problem at all ya, secara semua lauknya itu benar-benar layak dihidangkan bersama si #bakmi nya sendiri, dari #siobak nya yang renyah dan gurih enak, #chasiu nya yang juga punya taste yang pas di rasa, hingga #satebabi yang memang harus ada di sajian... Thankyou @detektifbakmi yang sudah merekomendasikan salah satu spot asik bersantap bakmi di Kelapa Gading... Yuks, TAG dan AJAK keluarga dan teman-teman ikutan kemari menikmati hidangan ini... Anyway, #letseat and #bon_appetit .. * * Mie Karet (Topping Babi) + Sate Babi * * ---------- Mie Benteng Jl Kelapa Kopyor Raya Blok Q1 No 22 Kelapa Gading Permai Jakarta Utara Facebook Mie Benteng πŸ“ž 0897-3975753 ---------- #foodstagram #fooddiary #foodjournal #foodjourney #foodie #foodphoto #foodreview #musenculinary #culinarypurple #musendikelapagading #taunyamakan #taunyamakandikelapagading #ayokmaremakan #jktfoodhunting #jktfoodbang #jktfooddestination #miebenteng #kulinerjakartautara #doyanbakmie #nonhalal

Hi guys! β˜€ I'm leaving you my dinner from yesterday 🍴 . #salad #lettuce #cucumber #radish #redonion #cherrytomato #youngpotatoes #oregano #redbellpepper #greenolives #porkmeat . I've been having a hard time lately. Can't really motivate myself to exercise and the excesses from the last days have already shown their results on the scale! Kind of on a deep moment right now... But I'm not giving up!! 😬 . . #weightlossmotivation #weightlossjourney #foodjournal #lackofmotivationtoworkout :/ #betterdayswillcome #icandoit #betterthanperfection #mychubbyfitjourney #followme

Nasi Padang @rmbungaraya served at home πŸ› As Sumatran Food Lovers, Me and my husband @ayonk_rock agreed that RM Bunga Raya is the Best RM.Padang in town πŸ‘ Even if you compare it with large RM.Padang such as RM S*derh*na etc. They have authentic taste. Their rendang is unbeatable, trust me. But my favorite always Paru Kering 😘 . Location: RM Bunga Raya Jln. KH.Ahmad Dahlan (across RS Muhammadiyah, Bandung) . #masakanpadang #indonesiancuisine #masakanindonesia #kulinerbdg #kulinerbandung #instafood #foodjournal #bandungfoodies #doyanmakan #foodporn #bandungjuara

πŸ“… WEDNESDAY 24th. MAY, 2017 Sampai Hospital Serdang pukul 7.45 am. Siap ambil ubat pukul 11.10 am. Sib baik mak duduk atas wheelchair dia, taklah penat berdiri. Selesai urusan perubatan, masuk urusan perut-an. Hahaha. Mak chu belanja makan hari ni. Alhamdulillah. Murah rezeki Mak Chu. Dari Hospital, terus hantar mak rumah adik lelaki. Memandangkan dapur tak berasap hari ni, maka kita tepek citer semalam. SAYUR TAUGEH GORENG 1. Buang 'ekor' taugeh. Cuci dan ketepikan. Carrot dipotong ala batang mancis. Ketepikan. 2. Panaskan sedikit minyak dan tumiskan bawang putih cincang hingga wangi. Masukkan carrot, hirisan bawang besar dan cili hidup. 3. Masukkan sedikit #maggisecukuprasa dan garam jika perlu. 4. Akhir sekali masukkan taugeh dan kacau sebentar sahaja. Padamkan api. Siap. #resepimamafami #kongsiresepi #recipesharing #homecooked #lunch #beansprouts #foodjournal #foodies #foodig #foodigers #foodgram #foodporn #instafood #foodblogger #bloggermasakan #yesyumr #takenwithsamsungnote5 . βšƒβšƒβšƒβšƒβšƒβšƒβšƒβšƒβšƒβšƒβšƒβšƒβšƒβšƒ
