Some of my clients find it easiest to eat food that feels nourishing if they follow a meal prep schedule. This can be extremely repetitive (if that doesn't bother you then that is great!) but it doesn't have to be. This recipe is an example of a simple meal prep that is not your boring protein with veggies.
1 box Barilla Chickpea pasta (or other pasta of choice, this one is a good source of protein!)
2-3 chicken breasts
1/3 cup pesto sauce
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1/4 cup nutritional yeast (optional but encouraged both for flavor and added B vitamins + protein)
1/2 of a red onion
1 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
1 1/2 cup spinach
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
cut your chicken into bite sized pieces and season with Italian seasoning plus a dash of salt and pepper
cook chicken in pan over medium heat until cooked through, stirring often.
remove from heat and set aside
bring a large pot of water to a boil
reduce heat to medium and add pasta
cook until pasta is al dente, drain water and set aside
mix together greek yogurt and pesto sauce
half each cherry tomato
dice red onion
cut spinach into thin strips
In a large mixing bowl, add pasta, chicken, pesto-yogurt mixture, tomatoes, spinach, red onion, and nutritional yeast
stir until evenly mixed
serve or split into meal prep containers to eat throughout the week!
