Last weekend was another typical week of meal planning and prep. I tried to add in a few different meals, but for the most part it was the same old stuff, especially breakfasts and lunches.
Meal Plan Week of 3/1-3/7:
Sunday: Homemade pizza with grilled chicken, broccoli, and spinach
Monday: Paleo stuffed peppers
Tuesday: Turkey veggie meatball “pasta”
Wednesday: chicken thighs, green beans, red potatoes
Thursday: Pasta with chicken and salad
Friday: salmon, sweet potato fries, asparagus
Saturday: dinner with my parents
Breakfasts: smoothies, egg frittatas, grain-free pancakes
Lunches: Leftovers, salads with grilled chicken or steak, roasted veggies
Here was the prep I did:
-washed and stored berries
-washed, cut and stored cucumbers and peppers
-roasted spaghetti squash
-roasted sweet potatoes and broccoli
-cooked egg frittata
-made “turkey meatballs” which ended up being more of a meat sauce (I think I used too many veggies so they wouldn’t stick together)…still came out good though!
This took me 1 hour and 45 minutes. I was able to roast the spaghetti squash at the same time as the sweet potatoes/broccoli (I put the potatoes in first at the same time as the squash for about 25 minutes and add the broccoli for the last 12-15 minutes). While that was cooking I washed and stored the other fruits and veggies. Then I got to work on the egg frittata (I used some of the veggies I had already roasted) and cooked the steak. I saved the baking for the end and was able to make the meatballs and start cleaning up while that stuff was in the oven.
Do you have a “system” to your meal prepping?
Are there any new meals you tried last week?
