Oatmeal Muffins/ One Sheet Pan Lunch

To say that my weeks are busy would be a complete understatement. Between work, working out, late meetings, studying, consulting and trying to remain normal, I am juggling quite a bit. One thing that keeps me pretty organized is making sure I plan out my meals for the week. If I fail to do this on Sunday, I somehow feel that I am going into the week planning to fail. I have been trying to get into the habit of not only planning lunch but snacks and breakfast as well. Here’s what’s on the menu this week:

Breakfast -Oatmeal Muffins and Turkey Sausage

Let me just say this. I love steel cut oats. However, the thought of having to make it in the morning (even the quick packs) makes me want to skip breakfast. This week I decided to try a different method.

  • 2 ½ cups of oatmeal (I used steel cut oats)

  • ½ cup of milk

  • ½ cup of maple syrup

  • ¼ cup of eggs

  • Optional: Small Scoop of Protein Powder

  • Optional: 3 bananas mashed up

Mix all ingredients. I poured into cupcake holders. Heat oven to 350. Bake for 40 minutes

These are so easy to make. After they were done, I added a little almond butter to the tops- HEAVEN!!!!

 

Snacks

  • Bagged pretzels (I love chips so this is a healthier option for me)
  • Protein bar

Lunch -These 1 sheet pan meals are so easy. Here’s what you’ll need: 

  • 1 pack of chicken breast or tenderloins

  • 1 package of fresh green beans

  • Grape tomatoes

  • Italian dressing seasoning

Simply slice the tomatoes, place the green beans on the bottom of the pan. Add your chicken breast and sprinkle your seasoning on top.

Heat your oven to 350 and bake for 25-30 minutes

You can even add these to the oven with your muffins.

And your week is now made. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did.

Happy April and have an awesome week
