Eating out and making healthy choices is possible! Salads have been given a bad reputation at restaurants, but you just need to know what to look for! Filling your plate with lean protein, greens, nuts and seeds leaves you feeling satisfied and tastes fantastic. Valley Greens with Chicken from @tradingposteatery in Fort Langley: -Mixed Greens -beets -almonds -sunflower seeds -cranberries (light on cranberries) -goat cheese (light on cheese) -chicken breast -sherry vinaigrette (on the side) This salad was a client recommendation too! My peeps know what to look for! @tradingposteatery @fortlangley #fortlangley #tradingpostbrewing #salad #health #food #foodporn #dinner #patio #summer #spring #fitness #fitfam #fathersday #fitspo #personaltrainer #langley #l4l #followme #follow4follow

Kalena is a personal trainer and a Group Fitness Instructor, so, as you can imagine, her days are busy. She is definitely one of the most organized people when it comes to weekly meal prep. 

"I’ll usually prep two different proteins and one carb at the beginning of the week and use it multiple ways. Makes it more exciting. :)

This week I prepped ground turkey, chicken breast, and brown rice, and I will use it for:

  • Healthy turkey taco salad

  • Chicken/veg/rice bowl adding your favourite toppers (This week I’ll use romaine, cherry tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, and hummus)

  • Turkey lettuce wraps

  • Egg frittata (using brown rice and my fave veggies)

I am also always trying new protein ball recipes for snacks on the go!"kalena-morton

Sharaya is currently in training for a fitness competition. Here's how she meal preps these days:

"I make egg white burritos! Egg whites in a small pan with spinach. Then I throw in a cooked piece of turkey bacon and roll up into a burrito wrap, and have it for my breakfasts in the morning. Oh, and of course with hot sauce, and some laughing cow cheese."

Mike is an athlete, and he likes to keep it simple, healthy... and classy.

"I love cooking salmon. It's super easy and mindless, as all you do is prep, oven, and chill until it’s done. Salt, pepper, lemon juice, dill, and some fresh lemon slices over top the fish–then wrap it up in a tin foil parcel and let it cook. Accompany it with steamed veggies and a carb, and you have a perfectly balanced meal. Mindless Meal Prep."

Logan likes to spice things up–literally, and make a one-pot meal for the whole week.

"Crock pot chilli with extra meat... ground turkey, chicken (comes out shredded), or sometimes kangaroo (it's lean and has loads of nutrients!)."
