30 Day Challenge Day 1: Meal Prep

Good Morning Sunshines! I hope your NYE was amazing and you’re ready to kill this 30 Day Challenge! Today starts out as a rest day so you can meal prep for the week.

For all of you challengers (we are at 6 people now YAY!) read through your starter guide again to make sure you know what’s going on. The workout schedule for this week is found in the freebie library!

Let’s get into the meal prep for week one!

Week 1 Meap Prep | Fit Earthling 30 Day Challenge

This is a very simple prep and will fuel you throughout the week. In the recipe card at the bottom, I have provided a printable list for your groceries this week so it’s super easy for you to bring it along to the store with you! 🙂 You’re welcome!

Sometimes when you do meal prep for the week, you can get bored with having the same (or very similar) meals everyday. With this week’s menu, you will be loving every single meal!

There is room for 5 different meals to keep you fueled up all day long. Just like I talk about in the starter guide. The two snacks are to be treated at a meal as well. Don’t limit the portion sizes if you are hungry!

Meal Prep Guidelines

Morning Kick Start: ACV Juice

Each morning you will be drinking a little elixir juice shot. This will be drank on an empty stomach right when you wake up followed by a glass of water. This helps a ton with kick starting your metabolism and keeping your digestion firing all day long.

Here’s what you’ll need:

Just mix the juice shot together and take it quick! You’ll want to have that water ready to start washing it down… It’s pretty ACV strong… But you’ll see that it’s totally worth it! Even though it’s a little rough I feel so much better and have literally NO stomach issues when I take it! Check out this video about ACV I shared on Facebook!

Breakfast: Green Protein Smoothie

We will be preparing THESE SMOOTHIE BAGS for the week and adding a scoop of Vega Protein & Greens: Vanilla on the day of. You can also just watch the tutorial video up on YouTube for a step by step visual for the smoothie bags!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 6 ripe bananas
  • 1 bunch celery
  • 1 english cucumber
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • full container of spinach & kale mix (I find this one at Target)
  • 6 cups coconut water
  • Vega Protein & Greens: Vanilla (also can be found at Target)

Check out this post for more details on prepping the smoothie bags! If you want to opt for water instead of coconut water in the smoothies that it perfectly fine as well!

AM Snack: PB Banana Toast

Easy Peasy and so delicious! Use sprouted grain bread instead of processed flour bread if you can. I like the Ezekiel brand or sometimes Trader Joes or Whole Foods has their store brand. Find a peanut butter that has no added oils. Use a ripe banana and slice it on top of the peanut butter YUM!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1 loaf of sprouted grain bread
  • 6 ripe bananas
  • Natural PB with no added oil (make sure to check that ingredient list)

Lunch: Mexican Fried Rice (Veggie Loaded)

I have a Vegetable Fried rice recipe that this is based on. I added corn, black beans and chili powder for the mexican flavor! See this post for more step by step directions on how to make the fried rice!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 cups dry rice, follow cooking directions on package
  • 1 cup frozen carrots & peas
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 small red onion
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic, jar
  • 1 Tbsp minced ginger, jar
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 package extra firm tofu
  • chili powder to taste
  • cumin to taste
  • cayenne pepper (optional)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • vegetable broth for sautéing

Optional Tahini Sauce:

  • 1 Tbsp Tahini
  • 1/2 Tbsp taco sauce
  • dash of water

This tahini sauce is amazing with the fried rice! It’s almost like a cheesy sauce! Try to make this day of if possible to keep it fresh.

PM Snack: All the Veggies and Hummus

Feel free to buy store bought hummus for this! It makes it so much easier to just pop open and enjoy. There are tons of great homemade hummus recipes out there and I will have one on here soon!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1-2 containers of hummus
  • carrots, cucumber, snap peas, tomatoes, radishes, any other veggies you like!

Dinner: Healthy Vegan Mac & Cheese

Check out this post for the full recipe! This week we will be adding green peas for a little nutrient boost and to add some more color in the dish.

I recommend doubling the recipe for this week to have enough through the weekend as well. And remember, you can always freeze any leftovers!

Dessert: Banana Nicecream

Nice cream will literally change your life! This is the perfect nightcap of a meal and is also totally optional! Freeze the bananas when they are ripe and keep them in the freezer until you are ready to

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 12 frozen ripe bananas
  • 2 Tbsp peanut powder
  • tiny splash of almond milk

Just add all of the ingredients into your blender and turn it on! Try to use minimal liquid to keep it thick and creamy like the frozen treat we all love!
