EASY, DELICIOUS & HEALTHY
Meal prep makes staying on track and making healthier choices quite simpler. You have food already prepared, you just have to heat it up and enjoy!
However, I know that eventually we run out of ideas and the things we eat seem to become monotonous. That is why I have compiled a few of my favorite recipes I have used in the past for delicious and healthy lunches!
This recipe can be very versatile as it can be enjoyed as a sandwich, lettuce wraps or bowls, over crackers, whatever you are feeling. Feel free to mix it up too!
HIGH PROTEIN, LOW-CARB PIZZA
No offense, but if you do not like pizza, in my eyes, you are not a trustworthy person. Seriously though, I am in love with pizza and I am not picky. But it’s not very healthy, is it? Give this recipe a try! Nothing ever really compares to the real deal, but this is sure close! You will be pleasantly surprised. I like to serve a slice with a small spinach salad.
SPICY CHICKEN WINGS
Another one of my favorite foods – chicken wings! I also like spices so these puppies really hit the spot. They feel like a comfort food to me without being unhealthy. These go very nicely with a side salad or some carrot chips. The recipe instructs you on cooking them in a skillet, but if you’re a griller, you can do that too!
LINGUINE with CHICKEN, SPINACH, TOMATOES & MUSHROOMS
I know people talk about pasta being unhealthy and to try to stay away from it, but once in a while will not hurt you. It’s good to offer yourself something that is considered “off limits” and the carbs will help your progress! Plus, you definitely are not missing out on nutrition with this meal, big thanks to the spinach, tomatoes, and mushrooms!

FAITH ENGEN ELLIS
Faith is a southern girl, born and raised in North Carolina. She enjoys spending time with her husband and fur-baby.
Faith is living a healthy lifestyle and her ultimate passion is to inspire others to do the same.
She decided to change the way she was living 4 years ago, but she wasn’t expecting to actually fall in love with it!
Now she enjoys experimenting with different kinds of fitness and challenging her body to new heights whether it be pilates, plyometric training, or weight training, and she aims to inspire others to realize the strength within themselves as well.
Faith’s favorite product for pre-workout is the Optimum Nutrition Essential Amino Energy line. Her favorite flavor so far has been the peach lemonade, but next on her list is Mocha Cappuccino, yum! The use of natural caffeine sources is a real win for this product and it mixes easily, so there is no grainy texture.
For protein sources, she enjoys Oh Yeah! One Bars for a quick and filling snack on-the-go, of which she has many favorite flavors! Or Gaspari Precision Protein to mix up a shake. Faith’s favorite recipe uses 1 scoop of the Cinnamon Cereal Crunch flavor, mixed with 1/2 a banana, 1/4 a cup of vanilla Greek yogurt, 1 tsp cinnamon, 8 ounces of unsweetened almond milk, and 1 cup of ice.
