Chicken, sweet potato, and zoodle meal prep


This is a quick and easy way to make lots of healthy meals for the week. I have been on a competition-prep diet for the last 14 weeks, with about 2 more to go, so my food has been very simple and wholesome. 

However, once these meals are made, you could add salsa, guacamole, black beans, greek yogurt, or other toppings to customize it how you like! To prep big quantities of chicken, I put about ~4 lbs of chicken breast in my slow cooker on low with about 10 oz of water and spices. After draining the excess water, it comes out as a shredded texture which is really easy to portion out. '

I chopped and roasted the sweet potatoes on cookie sheets at 400 F until they were fork tender, typically somewhere in the ballpark of 20-30 minutes in the oven. Then, for the zoodles, I have a zucchini spaghetti maker like this one. I place them in my containers raw since the reheating in the microwave is typically enough to cook the zucchini. I topped these meals with fresh parsley, lemon juice, and pepper. Macros per container (4 oz chicken, 3 oz sweet potato) are approximately 21 g carbs, 31 g protein, 1 g fat.
