Baked Chicken Recipes - Sugar Spice and Honey Mustard Chicken Meal Prep - 1500 Calories All Day

So 2019 has rocked around, and it's nearly on everyone's hit-list to make this the year to shed some weight and rock a great body. So the biggest question is, what's the best way to do it? Well I'm sure you've heard it before, but it's all in the kitchen! What we eat is so important to control our weight, so the first step is to prepare for the weeks and months ahead. Are you ready to try something new? If that's you, check out this week's full meal prep that's low fat, high in protein and best of all low in calories while maintaining sizeable portions to keep you fuller for longer!
Our two main meals this week will focus on using chicken (our high protein and low fat friend) for a Sugar Spice Chicken and Salad and Honey Mustard Chicken and Veggies. Our snack this week will be yoghurt, muesli and fruit and a banana. Complement the day's meal prep with a tasty and quick breakfast shake, made from almond milk, frozen fruit and protein powder for breakfast every morning and another protein shake in the afternoon.
