Sunday Food Prep Inspiration 65

Hi Friends!

Here’s a look at what I prepped last week during my Sunday Food Prep:



I made:

  •  Mexican Enchilada Casserole – just a lot of veggies mixed with cooked chicken and black bean and topped with a little cheese and some enchilada sauce mixed with greek yogurt.
  • Quinoa Breakfast Bars
  • Sweet Potato Bites
  • Veggies
  • Black Beans
  • Hard Boiled Eggs
  • Hamburgers for hubby
  • A piece of chicken I didn’t use for the casserole
  • Salmon Cakes – used salmon instead of tuna
  • Meatloaf for hubby


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

Melanie at Melanie Ash Fitness

Prepped this week: steamed green beans, lean chicken breast (crockpot), sweet potatoes, rice, steamed broccoli & cauliflower, fresh veggies sliced.
Not pictured: buffalo balls, turkey balls, roasted zucchini & yellow squash, quinoa pasta, tilapia
During the week I some days I eat at home and others I take my food with me, it depends on the day and the meal but either way all I have to do is measure it out and heat it up, or throw in a container and put it in my cooler bag. It also helps me plan my meals day by day because I know what I have available!

  • My homemade “cereal”= raw oats, unsweetened shredded coconut, craisins, sunflower seeds, sliced almonds, cinnamon and nutmeg. I add some chia seeds, maple syrup, and almond milk in the morning and eat it up!
  • Mason Jar Salads= I make six at a time and they last up to a week. I have been loving this dressing
  • Vegetable and Sausage Dutch Oven Bake – can be made with any assortment of veggies!
  • Coconut Lemon Bombs –  for delicious, healthy snacking.
  • Cauliflower Rice – for burrito bowls or with roasted veggies
  • Pork Carnitas –  so delicious, to be eaten in a burrito bowl or with a side of vegetables, from 
  • Brussels roasted with bacon
  • Cut up Pineapple
  • Roasted Beets and Sweets

Summer –

I made crackpot salsa verde chicken thighs with peppers, brown rice with steamed snap peas and zucchini seed veggie burgers for dinners. I cut up cucumbers and strawberries for snacks and made my husbands lunches(3x) including veggie burgers, steamed broccoli, cucumber strawberry mix and couscous with red peppers with hotdog. (using leftovers from Sunday BBQ)



Roxanne at By Bun

This week, I made a big batch of veggie spring rolls (made with shredded carrots, brown rice, spinach, and crusted tofu – all wrapped up in rice paper).  Then every Sunday, I always restock what I call my ‘snack bin’ that lives in my fridge.  In my bin I have pre-portioned and healthy snacks to grab and throw into a lunch.  It ranges from blueberries, almonds, mini bell peppers, carrots, celery etc.  On top of that, I prep small containers of greek yogurt or cottage cheese.  Not to mention, I almost ALWAYS have a big bowl of hard boiled eggs ready to go!
