I cannot wait to share all of these recipes with you guys for this week’s meal. Prep we’re going to do a breakfast, a lunch. Anyone SmartPoint frosted cupcake. So everything is amazing. Everything is low point and absolutely delicious. So if you want to see what I have on the menu for meal prep for the upcoming week, all you have to do is a stay tuned for my breakfast this week, I’m going to be making hash brown cups.
I cannot wait to have these. I love hash browns. They get nice and crispy in this recipe, so good, and then I’m going to pair that with a little bit of turkey, bacon and some fruit. So let me show you first, what is in the hash brown cups, so you can either use shredded potatoes or you can use a russet potato soak it drain all the liquid do much work for me. I’m just going to go ahead and use few or write a shredded hash brown, potatoes you’ll need some skim, milk or skim milk alternative, some sort of oil.
I’m going to go ahead and use this extra virgin olive oil, some eggs, some broccoli and some light shredded cheese, and then I’m going to pair mine with this Sam’s Choice, uncured, turkey, bacon and a fruit. So let’s get started putting together our hash brown cups. So the first thing we need to do for our hash brown cups is go ahead and grab a medium-sized bowl to that bowl. We’re going to add our hash browns.
I ended up with just a little over two cups of shredded hash browns. That’s all! I have left in the bag, which I think is going to be absolutely plenty, and then to that we are going to add two teaspoons of olive oil and then we’re just going to give this a stir, get everything nice and combined and then we’re ready to Put our potato mixture into our cupcakes once your hash brown mixture is nice and combined with your olive oil you’re, going to take your cupcake pan, I went ahead and sprayed them really well with nonstick, cooking spray and then you’re going to equally divide your hash brown Mixture into your cupcakes pan here and we’re just going to push them down and basically create essentially a little nest and that’s what all the rest of our ingredients are going to go into.
So you can evenly divide your hash brown mixture between all six compartments. This recipe does make six servings, so if you want more than that, you can double the recipe, but I’m just going to have one of these hash brown cups a day, because I’m also going to be having some turkey bacon. So I want to make sure that I don’t overdo the point on breakfast so again, we’ll get these off, build up, push down to make little nests and then we’ll be ready to add some more of our ingredients into our hash brown cups.
So here’s what they should look like once you’ve pushed them down and kind of pulled them up. The sides of your cupcake tin now we’re going to get together our egg mixture and we’re just about done. This is quick and easy. Next, we’re going to get our egg mixture combined, so I’m just using the same bowl. What I have here is four cracked eggs, so I’m going to go ahead and add those we have one quarter cup of milk or milk alternative.
We also have one quarter cup of light, shredded cheese and I decided to add a little bit of black pepper and a little bit of onion salt to mine, just to kind of add a little bit of flavor. I love onion salt in my eggs. As you know, and then we’re just going to whisk this together until fully combined and then we’ll be ready to start assembling our eight cups so just grab your whisk, get it nice and combined.
You want to make sure that that cheese is intermix and then that milk will help fluff up your eggs as well, and now, let’s put together these hash brown cups. Next, we’re going to take 1/2 of a cup of chopped up broccoli and we’re just going to evenly divide the broccoli in our little hash brown cups. You can do as much or as little in each cup, but the recipe does call for an entire half of a cup of broccoli.
So we’re going to get that nice and applied. That gives it that nice, healthy dose of vegetables and then to that is where we’re going to go ahead and add our egg mixture to the top so evenly divide out your broccoli, make sure you’re pushing it down so that your eggs don’t totally overfill everything and Then you’re going to take your egg mixture, I’m going to do it by like the quarter cup and you’re just going to apply that to the top of your a cup whew yeah.
That’s a lot so make sure you really are pushing down your hashbrowns and your broccoli. So I’ve filled my hash brown cups with the egg mixture and they are nice and full. So I do even have a little bit left of the egg mixture, but I’m still going to count the full amount of point so we’re going to put these in the oven at four degrees until they come out nice and crispy. We want the hash brown cup crispy and we want the egg cooked completely through so to cook my turkey bacon.
I have two halves or one full paper towel here, I’m going to cook my turkey bacon in the microwave. So I’m going to put two slices on one half of my paper towel fold it over and then I’m just going to cook it in the microwave for three minutes and literally it comes out perfectly crispy and then I’m just going to put it into my meal. Prep containers so I’ll just do five rounds of three minutes for the turkey bacon.
So I just pulled my turkey bacon out. I did decide to do two minutes so that it’s not fully cooked because I’m going to have to reheat this at work. So this is two minutes: it’s perfect! I’m just going to continue cooking the rest of my Pat’s and then we’ll put these into our meal prep containers, so our hash brown cups are out of the oven. These look absolutely delicious. So now we’re ready to pop these out and assemble our meal prep.
So I have my bacon here. I also D stand and washed some grapes. So let’s put these meal preps together and then I’ll give you the smart points. So here is our hash brown cup. Once I popped it out of the muffin pan and just out of it here to my meal, prep container, they look delicious. I did realize when I was figuring the smart points that you are supposed to cook the hash browns. First, in your oven to get them crispy before you add the broccoli and eggs.
Now I don’t mind because I’m going to be reheating mine all week anyways. But if you do decide to recreate this recipe, which I highly recommend make sure that you do cook your hashbrowns first and then add your broccoli in your egg mixture. So let me put together the rest of my meal prep here. So I have one of those cute little hash brown cups, I’m going to add two slices of the SAMS choice, turkey, bacon and then I’m going to back up in a little ziplock bag some grapes.
So let me put together these meal preps and I’ll be back to show you the completed breakfast. So here is my completed breakfast meal prep. This looks so incredibly delicious. What a good Whole Foods high-protein is fine breakfast. So let me show you: first, we have one of our hash brown cups. These you guys are so good. I just had one for breakfast amazing, even without crisping up those hash browns.
These are so good and they are only two smart points apiece, and that includes the cheese, the hash browns yumminess for two points. Each one of my pieces of the Sam’s Choice: turkey, bacon, is one smart point. So that’s an additional two smart points. I’m going to pair that with a mix here of my black and red grapes, so this entire breakfast meal, prep, is only for smart points and everything is a fresh, delicious back to the basics, whole food.
So this, my friends, is my for smart point breakfasts for the week for lunches this week, I’m going to be making a weight reader recipe directly from the app, and this is a ramen noodle salad and I’m going to pair that with some chicken and also some Fruit, so let me show you first, what is in the ramen noodle salad, so first you’re going to need some rice, vinegar, some canola oil or any kind of oil that you have.
The recipe calls for canola and I had it so I’m going to use it. You’ll need some Splenda or sugar alternative soy, sauce sliced almonds, slivered almonds. Whatever head of almonds, you want the recipe called for sunflower seeds, but I’m going to use pepitas. I, like them better in this type of a dish, but you could do either one you’re also going to need some green onions, a bag of coleslaw and as crazy as it sounds a package of top ramen.
So that is everything that’s in the salad and then I’m just going to cook up some chicken breasts and I’m going to go ahead and marinate it in this G Hughes, sugar-free, teriyaki marinade. This marinade is so good. You guys zero points and then of course, I’ll pair it with some fruit. So let’s get started on our salad. So the first thing you need for your salad is a nice big bowl to that bowl you’re going to go ahead and add your bag of your coleslaw mix, and then you also are going to add four really thin sliced green onions.
So I went ahead and cut those up as thin as possible and we’re just going to give this a good mix. We kind of want to make sure the coleslaw and the green onions are well mixed in together before we start preparing our dressing. So just make sure your green onions are nice and combined in here with your whole slot next we’re going to put together the dressing. So what I have here is 1/8 cup of rice wine, vinegar.
I have two tablespoons of canola oil and then I have five teaspoons of Truvia. I went ahead and use trivia. You could really use any sweetener alternative and then you’re going to add a teaspoon of soy sauce and then you’re going to stir this together and that’s it. You guys, I mean literally, your salad is pretty much done and then we’re just going to set this aside until we’re ready to assemble our lunch prep of our Asian salad.
So there is your dressing for your noodle salad. Once you get your dressing, stir together, you’re going to go ahead and add the packet from the ramen so you’re, adding in that chicken flavoring and go ahead and stir that into your dressing as well, and we’re going to prep this a little bit different. Because I don’t want to add the dressing or the almonds, pepitas or ramen noodles until right before we eat.
So let me show you how I’m going to put together my salad so to put together the salad portion of my lunches for the week. This recipe makes six servings, so I’m going to go ahead and take some of the close la mix and I’m just going to add it to the large compartment of my meal prep now the coleslaw and the green onions is zero, so it doesn’t matter if you Go a little bit extra on the cabbage. You can see here that I went ahead and I measured out 1/6 of the ramen noodles, which was just about 12 or so grams.
I also did about a half a taste tablespoon of pepitas and sliced almonds, which is also one sixth of the recipes. So this, obviously I don’t want add it to my salad until right before I’m going to eat it. I also divided that dressing into six containers as well, so this is one sixth of the dressing, so my Lana’s, as I’m just going to pop my dressing container in with my cabbage and then I’m simply going to just lay my noodles almond Pepita mixture on top And then, when I go to eat my lunch I’ll, add the dressing and I’ll have the crunchy ingredients that way they stay nice and crunchy.
So I’m going to get these assembled and then we’ll be ready to get our chicken cooking. So I went ahead and cut up my chicken breasts. You can see here that I’ve removed all visible fat and then I’ve sliced them in half so that they’re thin to my chicken I’m going to be adding in the G Hughes sugar-free teriyaki marinade. I love this marinade, I’m going to add the last to the half of the bottle here to my chicken and that I’m going to just seal up my bag, remove as much of the air as you can, when you’re doing this seal up your bag and just Kind of squish it around get that teriyaki kind of all over your breasts of chicken.
I’m going to throw this in the fridge and let this kind of sit in the marinade for a few minutes, while the oven warms up and then I’m going to bake these. In the oven, I think it’s the fastest way to cook this amount of chicken versus in your air fryer. So I will be back once the oven is warmed up and show you how I’m going to cook this I’m going to get our chicken ready to go in to the oven. Oh, my goodness, it smells amazing with that teriyaki sauce.
So I’m just going to pull out the breasts and I’m going to just place them on some parchment paper. They are coated in the teriyaki, I mean coated, so I think that it’ll really have that nice teriyaki flavor to them, and then I’m just going to throw these in the oven on 375 until they’re cooked all the way through, and then we will go ahead and Put together our meal prep containers, because everything will be done, so I am just taking a little bit of the teriyaki here out of the bag and just kind of laying it on top of the chicken breast all right.
These look delicious. I’m going to go ahead and get these into the oven. It just pulled my teriyaki chicken out of the oven. You guys this looks amazing. My house smells even better, so I’m going to let this cool for just a couple of minutes, we’ll put it into my meal prep container and then I’ll show you exactly what I’m taking for lunches and give you the smart points.

I just melted it down in the microwave and basically, what we’re going to do is we’re just going to drizzle it over the top of all of our cupcakes. That’s why I kind of put them close together here on the foil so that when we drizzled, we kind of combined them all together with the frosting and then I’m going to go the opposite way as well.

Now, if you guys love granola as much as I do, you can’t eat it on WW I mean you can because we can even we whatever we’d like, but it is very high in points so this program NOLA, is the granola you’ve been desiring for small points.
So here’s the stats on this particular granola – and this is the vanilla cluster. This particular one is vegan. They do use a pea protein as the protein source. It is paleo and keto friendly.

That’s it smart points and that’s a lot of granola. That’s enough that you can top it with some almond milk and make it a breakfast and you’re getting some protein you’re getting 12 grams of protein, but my favorite way to eat this. Is I take about a tablespoon and I just talked my Light & Fit Greek yogurt with it, and it just adds that added crunch and it’s zero extra point. So not only am I having a granola talk, yogurt I’m getting some protein, and all I have to count for is the point of the yogurt.
