Simple and Affordable Meal Prepping Ideas For the Sporty Afros’ Sexy Summer Shred Challenge!

We are a few days into the Sporty Afros’ Sexy Summer Shred Challenge! Woohooo!

One of the hardest parts of getting into shape and losing weight revolves around a person’s diet. I love meal prepping because it tends to removes many of the unhealthy eating choices. It’s simple, affordable and answers the “What’s for dinner question?”

Here is a look at my meal prep for week one of the #sportyshred challenge. I also included a few other meal prepping options from my friends.

Note: Seitan isn’t clean. I saw it on sale and totally forgot it contains a lot of processed wheat. My fault!


Here are a few other ideas for meal prepping.

Karen Armour – Dietitian and My Saturday Long Run Buddy!

meal prepping karen 2Karen is all about nutritional balance and proper fueling as a dietitian and marathoner. Her  first meal is a mixture of spicy ground turkey on top of a brown rice/quinoa mixture. (She ran out of room to separate the meat and whole grain.) The other meal is a mixture of veggies and thin pasta with sauce. She also has a variety of fruit and nuts for snacks as well. 


Alexandria G – The Newest #Fitfriend and Morning Workout Buddy!

Alex is new to meal prepping and wanted to keep it simple. With almost 10 pounds lost in 4 weeks, keeping it simple is paying off in major ways. She either grills or bakes a variety of proteins,  such as chicken and beef and tops them off with a grains and mixed vegetable.  For breakfast she prepares egg omelets and drinks plenty of water though out the day.

Earlier this year, Whitney did an awesome post for a vegetarian weekly meal prep. It’s a great meal prep for vegetarians or meat eaters as well. Take a look at the details by clicking here.

I hope these help motivate you in keeping your diet together this week.
