I've had this recipe saved for a while now as a quick and yummy meal option to make for when I didn't have much time to meal prep, and that day finally came! I don't prefer to prep food mid-week, but I came home from vacation on a Tuesday night and had to make sure I had some meals to get me through the rest of the week. It's always tough coming back from vacation and getting back on track, so I've found it best to just prepare a real tasty meal to ease back into things. This meal was just that! I picked up a package of Aidells Chicken & Apple Smoked Chicken Sausage (which comes in a pack of 4), some already cubed sweet potatoes that I found at Whole Foods, and 2 medium apples. Talk about a simple and easy recipe! I ended up slicing the sausages, but not all the way through so that I could easily just place each sausage into the 4 meals, then I divided up the cooked apples and sweet potato evenly into the meals. I will point out that my meals ended up being 16g Protein, 11g Fat, and 49g of Carbs, which is high in carbs and lower in protein. If you need more protein and less carbs, I suggest using less sweet potatoes and adding some eggs to the meal, or purchase some more chicken sausage and make a couple more meals. Also, you can easily sneak some veggies into this meal by throwing in spinach at the end and mixing around until all of it wilts. Overall, this meal was delicious and super easy to get done, so that I had a few extra meals to get me through the week!
