Time for some more Sunday food prep!
Here’s what I prepped last weekend:
- Cheese Stuffed Chicken Meatballs: All I have to do is add some sauce and noodles for dinner one night. (Similar to this recipe)
- Baked Chicken: To use in sandwiches and on salads.
- Roasted Pork Tenderloin: Could be cut up and used in a stir-fry or eaten as is.
- Quinoa Breakfast Bars: I pre-portion them so that my husband has a grab & go breakfast in the morning (Recipe here)
- Baked Potatoes: Just remove from the foil and microwave when ready to eat.
- Veggies for snacking: Perfect for munching on while getting dinner ready, with a little hummus!
- Lettuce for salads: Cut, wash, spin dry and store in a ziploc bag with a paper towel. Press the air out of the bag before storing.
- Hardboiled Eggs: Add one to your lunch or grab one for a quick snack. (Try this trick)
- Guacamole: Perfect addition to wraps or try using as a dressing for your salad!
I’m also working on a freezer meals post so I prepped 5 of those to try. If they taste good, I’ll share them 🙂
