As a part of our ongoing series entitled Meal Prep Sundays, members of the 6 Pack Fitness family have been been searching for recipes that will keep eating healthy interesting. This recipe is brought to you by 6 Pack Fitness Community Manager Anya!

From Anya:

Nothing gets more tiring than eating the same food over and over again. When I'm on prep, I frequently feel as if I am missing out on fun eating. Throw in an off-season boyfriend, and meal prep gets even more complicated.

I need very clean recipes for the two of us to share a meal together. To start, I found an amazing recipe for scallop fajitas from Fit Men Cook. This website is perfect to find fit meals, snacks, and even has a section on meal prep for those who are just starting out!

1. Chop up your red onion, yellow pepper, and garlic cloves. Set out the scallops on a paper towel to soak up excess water. Prep your pan with 1 TBS Oil and allow it to heat up on medium heat for 1-2 minutes.

2. Add in the veggies and stir with a spatula. Let the veggies simmer for 2-3 minutes before you add in the scallops. Scallops will cook fast so be sure you watch them! Cook them until light brown (no more than 5 min).

3. Remove the scallops & veggies from heat and set to the side. Use a separate pan lightly covered with 1 teaspoon oil. Place the tortillas in the pan to lightly cook them until they are warm to the touch and lightly brown. As simple as this step sounds it adds a bunch of flavor!

4. Slice up your avocado, jalapeno, and cilantro. Add to taste, along with the Pico de Gallo.

I added black beans and rice on the side for my guy so he could get more of a 'full' meal.

Met my last meal of the day and was able to make a successful dinner for us!

I was also able to meal prep for our lunch for the next day.

If you are watching carbs you can always eliminate the tortillas for iceberg lettuce or no wrap, use less scallops, or opt for coconut oil instead!
