Abstract Background



meal prep

As someone who was recently diagnosed with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome, you can imagine how hard it is now to suddenly become ill to foods I have eaten over the last almost thirty years of my life. While my journey to wellness  certainly wasn't easy, it lead me to create each and every one of these recipes featured on damn good thyme.

One of the biggest things I learned that helped me on my healing journey was to always be prepared with foods that I enjoyed, and that weren't going to trigger inflammation in my body. Whether you're working from home like me, or on the go everyday, these recipes are sure to hit the spot for you!

Meal Prep Components

  • Arugula

  • Shredded Chicken

  • Lovebird Cereal

  • 5 Ingredient Tahini Cookies

  • Plantain Fries

Meal Ideas:

Arugula: Arugula is so versatile! The easiest way to use it would be in a salad, but it also goes great with sandwiches and burgers! Here are some of my favorite recipes to add it to:

Shredded Chicken: I eat this daily, whether its with sweet potatoes, in a salad, or on a gluten free wrap, it hits the spot. Here are some ways to enjoy it:

Plantain Fries: These are the perfect substitute for white potatoes while on the AIP diet. In my opinion, they are tastier and come out much crispier than potato fries anyways! Enjoy them alongside any protein or on their own!

Love Bird Cereal: Most granolas contain either grains or nuts/seeds if not both. For those following the paleo diet, you can easily find grain free granola, however, for those following the AIP diet, there are maybe one or two AIP compliant granolas out there. If you're looking for something crunchy then this lovebird cereal is perfect! The cereal is made with four ingredients- cassava flour, coconut flour, coconut oil, and sea salt! Making it completely AIP friendly, paleo, vegan, and sugar free. Here are some ways to enjoy it:

  • with coconut milk

  • with coconut yogurt

  • with fruit

  • on top of a smoothie bowl

5-Ingredient Tahini Cookies: These cookies are soft, nutty, and most importantly, so easy to make, as they require only 5 ingredients.

Frequently Asked Questions:

How do you decide what to meal prep?

At the end of the week I will go through Pinterest and find one or two ideas for meals I definitely want to make. From that I will find meals that include those same main ingredients. I also usually ensure to have 3-4 veggies prepped, 1-2 proteins, 1-2 carbs and a dessert as well.

Will there be recipes that go with this meal prep?

yes! Throughout the week I will post the recipes that I created from this meal prep. Also check out this post on instagram for some more ideas.
