Sunday Food Prep Inspiration 21

Hi Friends!

Time for more food prep!

sundayfoodprep Sunday Food Prep Inspiration 21

I didn’t do any food prep last weekend because we were heading out of town Monday for my grandpa’s funeral. But have no fear….I have lots of great ideas to share with you today from my readers! Here’s what some of them have been up to:

Alyssa from Road to RD :

This week was our first pickup from our CSA, so there was a lot of veggies to use! This inspired me to prep other foods too. We had a bag of carrot sticks and celery that needed to be washed and cut, and I always like to keep a few hard boiled eggs around, just in case. Here’s what I prepped:

  • Nappa cabbage salad with cilantro and toasted almonds
  • Carrot sticks and celery sticks (which I like to call crunchy munchies :D)
  • My first ever batch of kale chips, which I sprinkled with parmesan cheese and olive oil and baked at 350 for 15 minutes
  • Hard boiled eggs (A great addition to a piece of fruit or crunchy munchies icon wink Sunday Food Prep Inspiration 21 )
  • Salad greens, arugula, and parsley for quick salad making!

Amy at The Little Honeybee :

  • 1. Grape tomatoes – sliced
  • 2. Blueberries – washed
  • 3. Sweet potato – chopped
  • 4. Zucchini – sliced
  • 5. Red/yellow/orange pepper – chopped
  • 6. Quinoa – cooked
  • 7. Oat, banana and almond cookies
  • 8. Edamame beans – cooked
  • 9. Strawberries – washed and sliced

The tomatoes, pepper, quinoa and edamame beans will be made into a salad for my lunches for the week (just adding some dried cranberries and balsamic vinegar). The zucchini and sweet potato will be used for dinner throughout the week (roasted in the oven served with chicken/salmon). The blueberries and strawberries are easy on-the-go snacks and the oat, banana and almond cookies are for a yummy treat!

Maria at Asphalt & Trails :

This weekend I focused on prepping light meals because it’s so hot outside I can’t stand heavy foods.  Here is what I prepped:
• southwest quinoa and black beans patties
• red quinoa, beans, corn and chicken salad
• octopus salad
• lentils meatballs with lemon pesto
• fiesta bowl (rice and beans topped with tomatoes, avocados and chestnuts).
• garlic and thyme roasted sweet potato wedges.
