How to Meal Prep! 28 Day Reset Style.

Hey Guys!

Your passion, dedication and results on the 28 Day Reset are CRAZY! Every day when I check Instagram or Facebook I’m blown away by what you’re posting. From photos, and “hooray to clear-skin” exclamations, to simple words of gratitude and statements of better habits, I am truly in awe! :D

That’s why I’m extra excited to bring you this meal prep video! I know how much planning it takes to eat clean, and sometimes, you just don’t want to have to think. That’s why I’m doing the thinking for you! I want to show you how easy it is to have tasty meals all week long with just a few ingredients.

 

Keep in mind, you need to decide in advance how many days you’ll be meal prepping. These recipes are all “serves 1” because you could decide to just make one of each for the whole week and have a big variety. Or, you could make one meal x 5 (for five dinners, or even times 10, for lunch and dinner). It’s really up to you.  The ground turkey is enough for 5 meals. So maybe you prep on Sunday for a few meals, and again on Wednesday to get you through the work week. It’s really up to you. The key is to have some Tupperware containers and enough of each ingredient for the number of times you wish to have each meal.

First…let’s learn how to make the ground turkey that will be in each one of these recipes!

    Hi Cassey! I have wanted to do the 28 day reset for ages but I’m anaphylactic to egg, celiac, lactose intolerant, allergic to soy and also cannot eat many other foods that are generally listed in the ingredients and I don’t really want to discover any more intolerances that may be underlying. Do you still think I should do the reset? I love all your videos by the way so inspiring!!

  • Sylvia

    I just invested in the 28 Day Reset package, but opted for the regular version because while I’m not vegan, I still like eating eggs and fish. In the recipes that contain turkey, chicken and pork, what do you suggest I substitute those proteins with?

    I love how you add nutritional info to the recipes, thank you!

  • Miss Nomar

    I’m on day 3 of my 28 day reset, (maybe day 2, because I didn’t prepare very well for day one and didn’t have as much gluten free food in the house that I thought I would. It seems like it’s in EVERYTHING!!)

    Anyway, this is perfect timing for me! Thanks!!

  • Anna

    I feel like my kitchen is so unprepared! Single 22 year old here on a tight budget. Can you make $40 a week grocery list?/ meal prep? Is it possible? That would be so awesome if you could!!! :) I am definately going to try the ground turkey and sweet potato. It looks so simple!

  • Claire Kirby

    Does anyone know what size Tupperware she is using for these meals?

  • Krystine N

    Thank you sooo much for this! I’ve been trying to eat healthier and prep my meals in advance, but the books/sites I’ve been reading have the most obscure expensive ingredients that would take forever to find and put together. This is exactly what I was looking for!

  • robert

    Turkey & eggs seem something prepared by some Asian goddess to curry favor with some young male lover belonging to the lowest planet called Earth. Thank you for sharing your tips. I found pretty yummy also these other books about “turkey & something else” http://www.vivaguides.com/single-post/Recipe-Books

  • Ayush

    I’m a vegetarian, what do you suggest?

    • Claire Kirby

      I’m going to use vegan ground “beef” that you can get in the frozen section of most grocery stores, including Wal-Mart.

  • Peggy Dixon

    Can’t wait to try some of these but what are coconut aminos? Thanks :)

    • Angie F.

      It’s an alternative to soy sauce. I think it tastes way better since it’s not salty. :)

      • Peggy Dixon

        thanks. I’ll use low sodium soy sauce if I can’t find it

  • Lindsay Short

    Cassey, This is awesome! Maybe make one with chicken, one with tofu. and other proteins! I love that your recipes are so easily to put together with basic ingredients.

  • Jessica Burns

    Thanks for the turkey recipes, I use turkey all the time cause it’s a healthier choice then ground beef and its different then using chicken, which is the other meat I use alot. I’ve been trying to decide what to meal prep annnd now I know!

    • Claire Kirby

      You don’t have to use turkey. You can use whatever lean protein you like. I don’t eat meat so I’m substituting a vegan alternative!

  • Yes! I love noodles!! A staple for me!

  • I love that all these recipes are so simple to make, there’s no excuse. :)

    It’s struggling with exams coming up, but I’m trying hard to stay healthy!

    The stuffed sweet potato looks really good! But ground turkey is somewhat unpopular & pricey here too (Greece) :( I’ll probably be substituting with chicken breast too.

    • blogilates

      Yes the sweet potato is amazing!!

  • Chi Yan

    these recipes all look amazing, Cassey!! however, ground turkey isn’t especially popular here in Singapore (and might be a little pricey too) so I’ll probably replace it with chicken breast or ground pork meat. can’t wait to try these out! (-:

    • blogilates

      That’s cool too!
