Social Media Manager (and fitness fanatic) Amanda Meixner is something of a celebrity in the meal prep world, and with good reason! Her simple menus with colorful, flavorful ingredients remind us that meal prep doesn’t have to be hard. Almost every weekend, she prepares a week’s worth of healthy meals and shares her photos on her Instagram account and her blog, Running Wild.

This week her menu includes breakfasts of chocolate overnight oats with fresh berries. Simply combine oats, almond milk, cocoa powder and berries in a mason jar and refrigerate. Make the recipe your own by adding a touch of cinnamon or nutmeg.

Amanda also prepared these tantalizing sweet potatoes stuffed with a medley of vegetables and black beans. Served with grilled chicken breast, they are a filling, high-protein meal. Fans of spice could add seasonings like cumin, oregano, or chili powder to the mix to amp up the flavor even more.
