didn’t get the joke it was a funny joke what’s going on and welcome back to the pit main cook kitchen for today’s meal prep recipe we have got a very special video today I’m gonna show you all my preferred method of meal prep I call it mix and match you may call it something else but essentially I’m gonna show you all how to take five basic things and turn them into several different meals so here is five foods ten different ways now there are tons of ways to approach this so I’m gonna just show you one of my simple ways the first thing you have to do is select your proteins for this I’m going to be using some chicken breast and also some garbanzo or some chickpeas after that you have to select your grain you can use some brown rice and jasmine rice I’m gonna be using quinoa if q1 is too pricy in your area then of course you just go with some brown rice after that select your vegetables you want your meal prep to be plant domina so really load up on this so I am going to be using some fresh chopped kale and then I’m gonna roast some vegetables I’m gonna roast some red onion some zucchini some bell pepper some sweet potato if you don’t like sweet potato then you can use some butternut squash and some yellow squash now those are the main ingredients from the prep once you prepare these foods all you’re gonna do is just add and really simple and common items from your fridge and from your pantry to bring the meals together and now I’m gonna show you how to do that right now so if you are ready to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty for some meal prep action then let’s get started to a large bowl we’re gonna toss in our veggies so I’m guys okay me some yellow squash some bell pepper some sweet potato and some red onion add in a little bit of olive oil or some avocado oil some sea salt pepper and a little dry thyme or your choice of herb mix it all together and toss to coat place the veggies on a baking tray lined with parchment paper then bake for 35 to 40 minutes at 400 – the chicken breast and add a little bit of cumin your choice of dried herb use some more time sea salt and pepper get your hands dirty and mix it all up spray a gnostics get a little bit of oil then add the chicken breast sear on each side for 3 minutes then bake in the oven for the kale we’re going to keep it simple and spray a nonstick skillet with a little bit of oil toss in the chopped kale squeeze in a little lemon a little water to create some steam and a pinch of sea salt and pepper this continuously stir until the kale softens up and wilts once it turns a vibrant green color then I move it from the skillet just like this set that same skillet back on the heat add in a little bit olive oil and garlic flavor the oil using the garlic toss in the chip piece crank up the heat to medium high then add some personality add in some smoked paprika and some oregano or your favorite writer add a pinch of sea salt and pepper toss together try to get a nice deep rich sear on the chickpeas once that Sears on there move it from the heat season to taste with a little bit of sea salt pepper a little bit more lemon okay now here’s the fun part we’re gonna bring everything together and start to mix and match some noodles so for breakfast we have two options the first one we’re gonna make a breakfast power bolt cook up some eggs first thing in the morning and if you want you can add a little bit of cheddar cheese add the eggs to some quinoa along with some freshly chopped tomato the green onion and if desired a little bit of avocado [Music] if you aren’t a fan of eggs you can use your prep chicken or your chickpeas and remember to save time every morning when you’re making your breakfast by having freshly chopped tomato and freshly chopped green onion ready to go for the other breakfast meal we’ve got one of my favorites of all time it is a vegan quinoa powerful so we’ve got our cooked quinoa and then we’re gonna add in common items like some fresh blueberries and some almonds instead of adding in some honey or some sweetener you can add in some dried fruit like I did here I use some dried cherries now my preferred way to make this is to warm up the quinoa in the microwave and then add in the cold blueberries and the room-temperature almonds and the dry fruit and then your choice of milk in order to keep this plant-based I’m gonna be using some almond milk but if you want you can have some regular milk too now for the next set of meals we’re gonna mix a little bit of the quinoa with our roasted veggies mix and toss to combine add it to your milk containers really live the hardiness of this one for one meal you’re going to add in some grilled chicken breast and the other one we’re going to keep it plant dominant by adding on some spicy roasted chickpeas and if you want to boost the hardiness just a bit you can add in some fresh tahini for another lunch we’re going to mix our braised kale with some chickpeas avocado flavor it with a little bit of lemon for a lower carb option we’re going to add in our roasted vegetables and some grilled chicken our next meal is heavy on the veggies so we’re gonna add in some braised kale roasted veggies and your choice of protein I’m gonna add in some leftover chicken and don’t be afraid to sauce it up to add some variety you could use some low calorie barbecue sauce or you can even make your own here I’ve got some peanut butter I’m gonna add in a little bit of soy some water and some lime this is a really quick and simple peanut sauce recipe and you could even spice it up with a little bit of Si Racha [Music] next we’re going to mix some quinoa some of our kale and spicy chickpeas pulled everything together beautiful colors enjoy this with your favorite low-calorie vinaigrette for the ultimate greens ingrain soul for this last one we’re going to add in kale and raw bell pepper for some nice peppery crunch add in your chicken breast or your choice of protein along with a little bit of avocado to boost the calories just a bit more check out the variety and the vibrant colors here on this table couple final notes about this prep the first one is all these foods are interchangeable so if you’re not a fan of chickpeas pick something up if you don’t like chicken swap it out with shrimp always do what’s your budget and your preferences will allow secondly don’t discount the caloric benefit of adding in things like avocado or maybe even a protein shake to your diet those things can help to boost the calories if you are feeling a little bit hungry or you need to add some hardiness to your meal third thing I’ll say is that these meals are very small so they are designed for the person who wants to eat several meals a day these are not really big meals but this is a good thing though because then you can have variety throughout the day in several different ways and the fourth thing I’ll share here just have fun I came up with 10 easy ways to mix and match these and guess what the cool thing about this prep is these five different foods actually only took under one hours of everything collectively so think about that in terms of efficiency for meal prep that frees up your time so that way you can go ahead and do more things or you can come back midweek and do the same thing over again but with different foods just takes one hour guys one hour of your time to prepare these five things and then mix and match throughout the week so that you could have some variety I think we can all do that right that is it for today’s
