#MealPrepMonday Tip

Hey Fit Fam...

My life is so hectic right now! But I really don't want to neglect this blog .. so I want to give you all a meal prep monday.....even if it's super short!

This tip may be VERY simple but it has saved my household a TON of time when it comes to meal prep!

Yup. Aluminum Foil! We line all our dishes and cookie sheets with it now when we are making anything in the oven. I still like to use baking dishes and cookie sheets but we line it with HEAVY DUTY aluminum foil first, so all we have to do is take out the food, remove the foil, trash it and 9 times out of 10.. No mess!!  Some people cook their meats straight in the foil and that works too! But since I just make a TON of plain ole ckn and potato fries at once -  it's easier to make it in a dish covered with foil!

So there is my tip! Use aluminum foil if you are getting sick of constantly washing dishes!

One other thing. But first close your eyes and stop reading if you are a big "save the planet person". The environment may hate me but we have also resorted to using a lot of paper plates :(  At least for now in the midst of show prep. These two things have made it to where we run the dishwasher once every other day instead of every night (sometimes twice a day) and made our sink 1/2 as full!

Some other ways to avoid a bigger "mess". Use a crock pot, a food steamer, a George Foreman grill, a waffle maker and the microwave when/if possible!

Eat Clean. Train Dirty.


  1. Hey Stacy, this is my first time reading through your blog....I love your big personality and it shows on stage too:) To add a comment on the aluminum foil...I prefer parchment paper in the oven, or if cooking on the grill, line the food in parchment paper, covered by aluminum foil. I've read that the aluminum can leach chemicals into your food. Who wants chemicals in your healthy food you just prepared, right?! Just thought I'd share :)

  2. Thank you Robin ... I didn't know that about the aluminum. I'll have to look into that some more!! Wouldn't covering it with aluminum foil cause the same risks though? I'l try parchment paper and I'm gonna read into this foil thing! THANK YOU!!!!
