Sunday Food Prep Inspiration 22

Hi Friends!

Time for more food prep:


Here’s what I prepped last weekend:


And here’s what some of you guys have been up to:

Nancy at Spiffy Kerms :

I was leaving to go out of town so I  decided to prep the Boyf with some food so he wouldn’t have to fend for himself making just meat and potatoes. I was in the hot kitchen last night making:macaroni and cheesecreamy chicken spaghetti, chicken teriyaki stir fry with rice…


Brittany at Go the Extra Mile :

Grilled chicken, brown rice, spaghetti squash, acorn squash, and homemade pita chips! I use most of this for lunches, so I can just throw a meal together since I don’t have much time during the day!



Here’s my Sunday food prep.  Posted a picture of my “assistant” that wouldn’t stop jumping up on the counter.

  • ·         Vege’s & Hummus for snacks
  • ·         Homemade vinaigrette dressing for salads, sooo good.  Recipe shared if requested!
  • ·         Turkey Chili w/ white beans & peppers for dinner
  • ·         Jamie Eason’s Turkey Muffins for lunches and dinner
  • ·         Watermelon & Cantaloupe mid morning snack
  • ·         Black Beans for salads and other misc meals
  • ·         HB eggs for snacks
  • ·         Fresh apples picked from local orchard to use for snacks and juicing

Also not picture cut up veges and apples for my juicer in the morning and a picture ACV drink’s for the week with cinnamon, cayenne and water.

Food prep (2)


Cut up strawberries. Green pepper, cantaloupe, cukes, chicken. Washed raspberries and grapes. Made chicken salad.


Emma at A Mom Runs this Town :

Here’s my baby food prep!  I don’t measure things, I just eye it and add whatever I think is needed.  The protein balls have all the ingredients listed and the veggies are just steamed.   The veggie burgers are carrots, red peppers, mushrooms, squash (from my dad’s garden), quinoa flower, eggs and cumin.


Morganne at Nut Butter Runner :

This week I plan on having things that are easy to grab to make portable snacks and lunches!
The easiest way I’ve found to accomplish this is to make your basics:
Protein to add to the basics:
And snacks that can be enjoyed alone or in combination:



So many good ideas!

  4. Sweet potato banana, PB chia balls?! Oh my, that’s a mouthful (and probably literally too!). Today I’m preparing lots of stuff for the week, if I get the time I’ll e-mail the photos to you, but they aren’t nice and need like in these pictures! I make large batches and then portion them out each day. This week I’m making lots with zucchini, since have SO MUCH!

  8. Hehe I love Wendy’s Assistant! Such a cute cat :)

  9. thanks for the plug Lindsay!

    Whewf. I haven’t stopped since I woke up this morning. I got back from vacation last week and didn’t really shop for groceries until this weekend. Holy food prep galore. Laundry and all that other house work stuff. I’m poooped right out!

    Love your list of what you’re making this week.

  10. I would love Wendy’s dressing recipe

    • i emailed her! will share as soon as I know!

    • Sorry for the delay, here’s the recipe finally for the vinaigrette dressing:

      1 cup olive oil
      1 cup red wine vinegar
      2 ½ tsp garlic powder
      2 ½ tsp oregano
      2 ½ tsp basil
      2 tsp pepper
      2 tsp salt
      2 tsp onion powder
      2 tsp Dijon mustard

      Store at room temperature.

      I usually put mine in the fridge about 20 min – ½ hour before I am going to eat just because I like it better cold. If you store it in the fridge it hardens up a bit because of the olive oil.

  11. so many good ideas i gotta prep more! recently posted..Cinnamon Brown Sugar Acorn Squash
