Dinner

No Fuss Meal Prep Chicken with Beluga Lentil Salad

Day 5 of 6

4-8 oz of your pre-cooked organic chicken breast. 1/4 cup of your pre-cooked quinoa and 5 raw asparagus spears warmed up. Accompany your dinner plate with 1 cup of your pre-made, Beluga lentil salad.

Day 6 of 6

4-8 oz of your pre-cooked organic chicken breast. 1/4 cup of your pre-cooked quinoa and 5 raw asparagus spears warmed up. Accompany your dinner plate with 1 cup of your pre-made, Beluga lentil salad.

Pro Tip: I prefer my asparagus with a crunch. I don't always pre-roast them. For the most part, warming up the raw asparagus in the microwave is enough for me. The crunch leaves me more satisfied. I add lemon juice, coarse salt and ground pepper to my asparagus after it is warmed up.
