Last weekend was a busy one but I still made sure to get my prep done, especially because I knew I would be busy during the week too! I did half of my prep on Saturday and half on Sunday to make the most of any free time I had. I also started with prepping lunches and saved things like baking for last in case I ran out of time.
Monday: Leftovers from my parents’
Tuesday: Burgers, sweet potato fries, green beans
Wednesday: Easy chicken bake
Friday: salmon, salad, side of pasta. I was going to use Sara’s recipe for the salmon, but I couldn’t get the webpage to load on Friday night! Silly internet.
Saturday: Veggie Crockpot Lasagna with ground turkey added
Breakfast: smoothies, eggs with bacon and veggies, paleo cinnamon blueberry breakfast cake
Lunch: salads with grilled chicken or steak and veggies, leftovers
Snacks/Desserts/Other: fruit, baby carrots with almond butter, fudge brownie bites
Here is what I prepped:
-roasted the sweet potatoes and broccoli for lunches or breakfasts
-cleaned, cut, stored berries
-made brownie bites (super easy- they’re no bake!)
-cleaned, cut, stored, cucumbers and bell pepper
-Rob grilled chicken for lunches and made extra for Sunday’s dinner
-baked blueberry breakfast cake
-prepared the quinoa salad- it’s served chilled so I made it at the end of my prep on Sunday and figured I would put in in the picture
I was happy that I made some different meals this week, but nothing too elaborate since I had something to do after work almost every evening!
How do you handle food prep on a busy weekend- skip it or still get it done?
Are there are any foods that you make a priority to prep because you know you won’t have time to prepare it during the week?
