I decided to start sharing my meal planning and prep posts the Friday or Saturday at the end of the week. This way people can get ideas for what they may want to plan or prep over the weekend, and it gives me a little more time to put the post together in case I don’t get finished with everything until later on Sunday. So hopefully I will keep these posts coming regularly, just on Friday or Saturday mornings!
This week’s meal plan:
Sunday: salmon, baked potatoes, asparagus
Monday: chicken (cooked on the stove with seasoning), roasted red potatoes, broccoli
Tuesday: turkey burgers, sweet potato fries, green beans
Wednesday: baked flounder, sweet potatoes, broccoli/cauliflower/carrots
Thursday: spaghetti squash with ground turkey, spinach, and tomato sauce
Friday: turkey meatballs, pasta, salad
Breakfasts: smoothies (usually as breakfast part 1 after a tough run), eggs with bacon/plantains/veggies, paleo pancakes
Lunches: salads with grilled chicken and veggies, leftover spaghetti squash
Snacks: honey pumpkin pie muffins, grain free angel food cake with cashew butter and berries, apples, pears, lara bars
Food prep last weekend:
– cooked bacon to use with eggs
-fried plantains to use with eggs
-washed and stored berries
-Rob grilled up chicken for us to use for lunches
-cut up pepper, carrot, cucumber and sautéed squash to use in salads
-roasted spaghetti squash
-made angel food cake (not pictured)
The prep took me a little over an hour and then whatever time it took Rob to grill the chicken. I think the clean up for that is actually the worst because we have to use an indoor grill. Everything was quick and simple enough during the week anyway, but it always helps to have some of the prep done before hand. I’m hoping to get a little more creative this week and maybe try a new recipe or two!
What day do you usually do your grocery shopping? What about food prep?
Did you have any new meals this week?
