Ok, so this prep is actually from a couple of weeks ago, before I left for BlogFest and IdeaWorld. Because I was getting ready to leave, I didn’t really get the chance to actually post it! But I really love how this one turned out, so here it is! (Want to read more about the conference? Check out my experience and thoughts!)
I kept my snacks pretty simple this time around. The sliced chicken and cheese is my current favorite snack and definitely helps tide me over between breakfast and lunch! And the hard-boiled eggs are a great boost for me when I get home from work, before I head to the gym. What is your go-to pre-workout snack? I would love to give it a try!
For Draz’s main dishes, I made two of his favorites: Island-Style Pulled Pork and Freezer-Ready Turkey and Bean Burritos! I made extra burritos, since I was hoping some would be leftover for him to enjoy while I was gone. I will be posting my recipe for these soon, but until then, here is the recipe that I started out using!
For my own main dishes, I made one favorite and one new: Healthy Baked Italian Sausage and Peppers and Cauliflower Chowder. I serve the Sausage and Peppers with steamed cauliflower rice (I love the frozen Bird’s Eye varieties). The Chowder I made a few small changes to
- turkey bacon instead of regular bacon
- a little bit of grapeseed oil instead of butter
- unsweetened almond milk instead of 2% milk
- 1-2 tbsp dried parsley instead of fresh
I like a thicker chowder, so I also simmered it a bit longer. And when it was done simmering, I ladled out a few cups worth and blended it, then added it back in. I think it turned out great and will definitely be making this delicious recipe again!

Do you prefer chowder or soup? If you like chowder, how do you thicken yours up? I would love to hear your thoughts, so please leave a comment below!
