Does meal prep seem daunting to you? It shouldn't be!
There are so many different ways to make it quick and easy to ensure you have healthy food to eat throughout the week.
I am a big fan of preparing food and using it many different ways throughout the week.
One of these foods is preparing shredded chicken.
Here is how to start...
3 lbs of boneless organic chicken breasts in a crock pot (around 4 large breasts).
Add 1 cup chicken broth, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper, 1 tsp garlic powder, and 1 tsp onion powder
Cook on low for 6-8 hrs or high for 3-4 hrs4. Shred the chicken with two forks and store in airtight, sealed bags or containers in the fridge for 4-5 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
Combine the chicken with your sauce of choice...
Your favorite marinade or dressing
Combine the chicken with the sauce of the day in a variety of ways…
Put it on a whole grain bun or toast
Toss it in a salad
Stuff it in a tortilla (almond flour, whole grain, coconut flour)
Put it in between 2 tortillas for a quesadilla
Put in on a baked sweet potato
Put in in a zucchini boat
Layer it on top of some bean chips (Beanitos)
Layer it on top of a cauliflower flatbread or cauliflower pizza crust
Use it in a lettuce wrap
Put it on top of a bed of cauliflower rice
Last but not least... enjoy it all by itself!
As you can see, just preparing one food item ahead of time can give you a variety of options for the whole week!
