Sunday Brunch 😋.
Eating healthy doesn’t need to be boring! It can be vibrant, exciting, delicious and nutritious all at the same time😍!.
This Sunday I was craving a seafood omelet accompanied with one of my favorite greens, Kale 🥬💚!.
OMGOODNESS IT’S SO DELICIOUS 🤤!!.
Super simple to make and took less than 20 min. (Check Story For Full Recipe) Plus left over ingredients for more fun recipes & meal prep for the week ☺️!
Learn how you can easily make your meals more vibrant, appetizing and still achieve your summer body goals with my FREE 30-Day Nutrition Plan 💪🏽. #LINKINBIO@theelleross 😘
The sun can either fuck it up for you or increase your progress...
Right I find with summer either one of these two situations...
1️⃣ Sun = Alcohol. Parties. Ice cream. BBQ’s. Ya see where I’m going with this...basically if you’re dieting, it could make things slightly more challenging👀 people asking you out for drinks, for brunch, a cheeky ice cream. All things you still CAN do but be aware that they may hinder your progress.
2️⃣ Sun = More steps🚶🏼♂️good weather can mean we’re outside more, getting transport less and making us more motivated to get out and move. Don’t forget the bikini beach goals!
Personally, I love summer. I’m outside more, it gives me a chance to ramp up steps but I’m also very much aware I’m way more inclined to a cider🍻😂
Whatever your goal the next few months, be aware that the weather may dictate a lot of your decisions. Just make sure you’re happy with them!
Salmon + plum sauce and a whole lot of roasted veggies 🥦🥑🍅🍠 After coaching all day, the last thing i wanted to do was peel and chop sweet potatoes - luckily i had some frozen cubed @stahlbushislandfarms sweet potatoes & broccoli on hand. As much as i love my fresh veggies, sometimes frozen is truly more convenient and yes, just as nutritious 😁
Happy Easter beautiful peeps! Yes it’s a holiday, but this shred train stops for NO ONE 🚂
But I did keep it simple this week so that I could spend time celebrating Easter, but also Matt’s birthday!!!! I attempted to bake him @milkbarstore birthday cake, and uh, let’s just say it didn’t go as planned. The flavors are there, but presentation is a solid 4/10. Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood definitely would have cut me from TGBBS (if you know you know). But cake is cake right? 🍰
Back to meal prep, I call this one: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This is a staple meal for me and is one I always come back to. It’s quick, healthy, delish, and I think tastes good cold or hot. Which checks all the boxes for a perfect meal prep.
dEATs: roasted sweet potatoes, poached chicken, and sautéed garlic chili kale.
PRO TIP: poaching chicken is an easy, low fat way to cook your chicken, that still can pack a lot of flavor. It all depends on your poaching liquid. This time I used vegetable broth and herbs and spices but the possibilities are endless.
Hands up if you are meal planning for this week 🙌🏽
My top 3 MEAL PLANNING TIPS are:
👆🏼Aim for 3-4 dinners per week. That’s it! Don’t plan to make fresh dinners every night of the week. Not only is that a lot of time, but life happens! Work dinners, happy hours, and impromptu date nights come up. Preparing only 3-4 dinners leaves some wiggle room in your schedule.
✌🏼Eat leftovers for lunch! Make enough servings to take the leftovers for lunch the next day. No need to stress about planning 5 weekday lunches, too. For me, packing leftovers prevented me from buying something nearby for lunch everyday. My co-workers still accepted me with my packed lunch 🙂
🤟🏼Shop what is on sale or in season. Don’t fall into a rut with the same recipes over and over again (do you really want to eat chicken breast, rice, and broccoli again?!). Shopping what is on sale or in season makes you use different ingredients in your menu. Right now, spring produce is bursting! Berries, asparagus, leafy greens, radishes, green onions, and more.
My menu this week includes recipes that are on in the table in under 30 minutes:
-Thai beef lettuce wraps
-Kale & white bean Caesar salads
-Pulled chicken tacos with spicy slaw
-Pork tenderloin with @eatbanza rice salad
I’m also baking some lemon blueberry muffins to have with hard-boiled eggs for easy breakfasts that are ready in 2 minutes! Eric and I are staying put for the week, so we have lots of food to cover our days at home. Sushi and thai takeout will likely make their way into the week, too 🙂
If you are below a 5 on your meal planning confidence, tell me your struggles! I’d love to help.
60 minutes ⏰
That’s all the time it took to prep our meals for the week + clean the kitchen!
Those 60 minutes give us:
👉🏻 peace of mind knowing what our menu is for the week [[no more “what’s for dinner?” convos 🙌🏻]]
👉🏻 10 quick + easy lunches that are loaded with healthy ingredients
👉🏻 15 healthy snacks [[to replace that afternoon vending machine date]]
👉🏻 2 dinners that are ready to warm up & eat
I’m curious, what’s keeping you from starting your week prepped and ready to go?

Time for a little #mealprepsunday . 3 lbs prime top sirloin (from Costco of course), seasoned with @webergrills Jamaican Jerk Caribbean Seasoning. Gonna let these bad boys chill in the fridge for a few hours before putting them on the grill. They should turn out delicious. 🤤💯👌🏻

New Honey Sesame Stir Fry
makes about 4 servings
1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, or tenders cut into 1 inch pieces
2 Tbsps sesame oil, divided
3 large pepper bells, different colors, diced large (I used red + yellow)
1 large onion, chopped into big chunks
sea salt and fresh ground black pepper, to your taste
2 fresh garlic cloves, minced or pressed
1/4 raw cup honey
1/4 cup chicken bone broth, or stock
1/4 cup coconut aminos, Bragg's liquid aminos, or low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp gluten free flour
2 Tbsp sesame seeds
2 green onions, thinly sliced
Heat 1 Tbsp oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook for approximately 2 minutes.
Add in bell peppers and garlic and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes, or until veggies are crisp tender. Remove from pan and set aside.
Add the remaining oil to the pan, then add in chicken and season with sea salt and pepper to taste.
Cook for 8 minutes or so, stirring occasionally, until browned and cooked through. Meanwhile, in a small glass bowl whisk together all the sauce ingredients.
Return veggies and add the sauce to the pan and cook, stirring for 2 more minutes until heated through and the sauce thickens a bit.
Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions. I served this over brown rice, but quinoa would also be awesome!
Happy Easter!!! 🐰🐰🐰
Spending the day doing work for grad school and I am SO thankful my family is bringing Easter dinner to me so I can focus on my work! 💖💖💖 Thank you to everyone for the sweet encouraging messages for my last 3 weeks of grad school.
