How to Meal Prep Healthy Lunches with IIFYM

I started meal prepping my lunches to take to work at about 15 months into my weight loss journey (when I was down about 82 pounds) and really have enjoyed eating real and whole foods for my lunches whenever possible! I made a habit of roasting up a bunch of veggies every weekend and paired it with some type of protein to eat throughout the week.  Since switching to the If It Fits Your Macros diet plan I've had to switch up how I cook and track my meal prep for lunches since IIFYM is based around weighing out all of your food to hit your macronutriet goal within +/- 5 grams every day. I thought I would share a post on how I have adjusted my meal prep to follow IIFYM and how I accurately track the macros for my lunches using My Fitness Pal!

First things first: you will need Tupperware! I bought this 10 pack of meal prep containers for less than $15 off amazon (affiliate link). They have three different compartments for food and are dishwasher and microwave safe.

Next: you will obviously need food :) I like to eat pretty healthy and low carb lunches during the day at work as I prefer to save my carbs and fats for snacks and desserts so I pick pretty low carb veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts or green beans.  I will buy the veggies pre-cut or in their regular forms depending on what's on sale that week at different grocery stores.  For this week I used two bags of green beans, two bags of cauliflower, and two large heads of broccoli for 5 lunches


This week I also prepped some protein to pack! If I'm low on time on the weekend I will sometimes buy pre-cooked chicken sausage and use that but this week I had plenty of time so I bought some thin sliced chicken breast cutlets to cook and and season with truffled parmesan rub.

Now for the fun part: time to start weighing! I weigh out each vegetable separately before they go in the oven.  I use the "tare" food scale from vanity planet (affiliate code "whims" makes it $25) to weigh the veggies raw
