5 Top Foods to Meal Prep For The Week

October 06, 2014 2 min read

Meal prep is essential to staying on track with a clean diet. However, have you ever wondered what were the best foods to prep or why they were good for prepping? Here are 5 that are perfect for your next prepped meal! 1. Chicken Breast: Sure, chicken breast may sound lame and cliche, but there's a very good reason why it is rated as one of the best foods to prep for the week: it is lean! A four oz. piece of skinless, boneless chicken breast is right at about 200 calories and about 35 grams of protein or more. The only problem, though? It can get rather boring. You can spice your chicken up different ways by playing around and experiementing with different herbs, marinades, and seasonings. My favorite seasoning for my chicken breasts is McCormick's Grillmates Fiery 5 Pepper seasoning! It never gets old. Besides being lean, chicken usually lasts up to 4 days if stored properly at the right temp in your fridge. For those who aren't down with storing chicken that long, try freezing each breast separately, wrapped tightly, and take out when ready to pack your meal. Easy peasy. dd 2. Quinoa: There's no secret why most people are starting to favor quinoa over plain ole brown rice. It is packed with fiber, phosphorus, and magnesium-not to mention countless inflammatory phytonutrients-and can be stored up to 4 days inside your fridge in an air tight container. It is easy to freeze and thaw, if needed. I also love the texture of it! dd 3. Broccoli: I know what you are thinking, "Another boring side to prep." Not exactly. Broccoli is super high in Vitamin K and Vitamin C and contains anti-inflammatory and cancer fighting properties. However, depending on how you prep it, you may lose all of the key nutrients! Do not steam or boil your broccoli for more than 3-5 minutes tops. Overcooking any veggies drastically reduces its nutritional value. I love my broccoli steamed with a little sesame oil, sesame seeds, and a dash of soy sauce. Typically, broccoli will last in the fridge for 3 days. You may freeze it if you need. dd 4. Sweet Potatoes: High in beta carotene, several recent studies have shown the superior ability of sweet potatoes to raise our blood levels of vitamin A. Sweet potatoes have also been known to regulate your blood sugar, thus, lowering your risks for later developing Type 2 Diabetes. You may steam, boil, or bake your sweet potatoes and they last up to 4 days in the fridge. I personally love to mash mine with a little Stevia or raw honey and some cinnamon as a "dessert." Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes; The Neelys 5. Black Beans: Packed with fiber, black beans are also known for being high in molybdenum, a mineral your body requires to trigger the function of enzymes essential for the synthesis of amino acids and the metabolism of certain compounds. These beans are also filled with countless flavonoids and antioxidants while keeping you feeling full for longer periods of time. You can store beans up until 4 days inside your fridge. photo (1)     For more food prep ideas, be sure to visit my blog by double clicking the image below! URLSmall

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping (whichever is faster) with our partners at UPS. Once your order has been processed successfully we try to have your shipment prepared within 4-6 business days, and it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse.

We currently DO NOT SHIP to locations outside of the US and Canada. We DO NOT ship to a P.O. Box number.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Sometimes delivery can be delayed by circumstances out of our control, like postal & custom delays, back-ordered products or incorrectly entered shipping addresses. If there is a delay at Customs, a representative of UPS may contact you to provide your identification in order to receive your package. Please do this ASAP: Customers will be responsible for any additional shipping fees for failure to provide the required information to release a shipment.

Make sure when checking out and paying for your order that all of your information entered is correct! If you notice a mistake in your address, please try to contact us before your order is processed for shipping to avoid any missed shipments or delays. As soon as we process your order for shipping, you will receive a shipping confirmation email that contains your UPS tracking number. You can head on over to the UPS Website to see where your products are. Note: tracking information may take 1-2 business days to be updated in the UPS system

If you are not home when your package is delivered, BodyRock is NOT responsible if it is stolen. Please contact us if this happens to you and we will provide you with all the information needed to take the next steps.
