Meal Prep ft. TasteOfTina: Guest Blogger Post

Adobe Spark.jpgHi Friends!

My name is Tina and I am a post graduate student from Toronto, Ontario. I have been given the pleasure to write a guest post for Lara’s blog and today I am going to share with you my personal meal prep that I love to make. If you want to check out more food and restaurant reviews, I also have my personal blog @tasteoftina. This meal prep is really simple and will last you 3 meals depending on how much you choose to make.



  • Quinoa Kernels
  • Brussel Sprouts (1 1/2cup)
  • 3 boneless chicken breasts
  • Broccoli (1 cup)
  • 1 sweet potato






  • Cayenne (1 teaspoon)
  • Onion (1 teaspoon)
  • Salt (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Pepper (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Garlic (1 teaspoon)
  • Paprika (1 teaspoon)

How to cook:

  1. take out the chicken from freezer and marinate with the spices combined in a bowl for 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 °F.
  3. Rinse quinoa and pour broth or water with salt into the rice cooker.
  4. Cut the broccoli into small florets and add into boiling water. Cover and steam for 4 to 5 minutes until tender
  5. Wash and cut the ends off of the brussels sprouts then slice in half.
  6. Wash and skin the sweet potatoes. Cut them into medium sized pieces
  7. Place sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts on a non-stick baking pan with aluminum foil. Lightly coat with olive oil, salt and pepper. Place into oven once preheated for 60 minutes (sweet potatoes) and 30 minutes (brussels sprouts).
  8. In a separate non-stick pan, place the marinated chicken onto a baking sheet and place into the oven for 30 minutes.
  9. Once ready, combine chicken, quinoa, potatoes, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli into a stackable microwavable food storage container



Total Time: 1 hour

If you are a student like me and want to save time on cooking and save money on junkfood you are always tempted to buy, I highly encourage you to try and meal prep because it helps achieve a healthy, balanced diet. You don’t need to be a bodybuilder or gym fanatic to meal prep, this is just a smart and efficient way to save time especially if you’re a student with minimal time to cook full meals.
