This week’s meal prep led me to get really irritated in the kitchen. I made a huge mess and even though I knew I would clean at the end, it still drove me crazy. I think it was also because I had to do it all on Sunday, and I just felt like it was a lot of work. But the good news is that it got done and saved me lots of time during the week!
Here’s what last week’s meal plan looked like:
Sunday: Homemade pizza with grilled chicken and vegetables
Monday: Salmon, baked potato, broccoli/cauliflower/carrots
Tuesday: Chicken coated in almond flour and cooked on the stove with zucchini noodles and tomato sauce
Wednesday: turkey burgers, sweet potato fries, asparagus
Friday: salads and pasta with turkey meatballs for Rob, grilled chicken and potato for me
Saturday: “Thanksgiving dinner” with my parents since we will be with Rob’s family for the actual day
Breakfasts: sweet potato cookies, eggs with veggies and bacon, smoothies
Lunches: salads with grilled chicken or steak and veggies, leftovers
Here is the meal prep that I did:
-cleaned and stored berries
-cut up bell pepper,asparagus, broccoli, cucumber
-roasted spaghetti squash, broccoli, sweet potato
-Rob grilled chicken
-made sweet potato breakfast cookies
-made PB snack bars
There were actually a few other things I was planning to make, but I didn’t buy certain ingredients and figured I was better off anyway. By the time I finished all this I was ready to get out of the kitchen!
