Meal Prep (Friday & Saturday)!

Happy Sunday everyone (aka the last day of my Spring Break 😦 )! Thank you Mommy Run Fast and Jill Conyers for the weekly link-up!

Last week my meal prep was just to get me through the week to have some ingredients on hand to put together to make meals. This week because it is back to the grind, I did a full meal prep. I broke it up by going to Trader Joes on Friday and getting my lunches, snacks, and breakfasts prepped. I then finished dinner on Saturday. So nice to have the time to leisurely cook!

Breakfast:

Some Butternut Squash Roasted in coconut oil and cinnamon.

Hard Boiled Eggs.

This isn’t my only breakfast all week. I am always changing it up, smoothies, overnight oats, etc.

Lunches:

Salads: Beans, Tomatoes, Cucumber, Avocado, TJs Veggie 8 Mix and TJs Grilled Chicken.

Sweet Potatoes and a regular potato. At TJs they are $0.49 per potato so that’s why I buy the massive ones. Why spend $0.49 on a small potato when you can get a much larger one for the same price. That is what I always do in TJs, get the biggest produce possible since they charge by the item not the pound!

Dinner:

I finally bought some Quinoa to change it up from the rice that I have been making often.

All cooked and prepped.

I wasn’t feeling very creative this week so all I got was mushrooms, an onion, and Italian chicken sausage.

Cooked it all together and served it over Quinoa:

I also roasted some broccoli:

2 lbs. of strawberries, washed and chopped.

I also prepped a Green Smoothie to enjoy after Spin:

That bag of frozen pineapple is only $1.99 at TJs!

That’s a wrap up of my meal prep this week!

  1. Looks heat! Thanks for sharing! Couple of questions for you. What containers are you using? They look like plastic cups with lids. How did you roast the broccoli? And you madethe smoothie ahead of time? Do you store it in the fridge or the freezer?

    1. Thanks! The plastic containers for the salads and other random things are actually from like a restaurant supply store and they come with a ton in the packaging, I do reuse them to be green, but you can recycle them because there are so many in one package. They come in all different sizes. I roasted the broccoli by spraying it with Trader Joe’s Italian Olive Oil Spray, salt and pepper and then in the oven at 350 for like a half hour, 45 minutes. The smoothie I just stored in the fridge. I only make a smoothie the night before I plan to have it. Hope that helps!! Thanks for reading my post 🙂
