Sunday Food Prep Inspiration 72

Hi Friends!

Time for some Sunday Food Prep Inspiration to help get you on track for next week!


I didn’t prep last week since I was returning from out of town, but check out what some of you guys have been up to!

We just got home from a weeklong vacation on Saturday and had no food in the house. So this week’s shopping and prepping was a massive undertaking!  This week’s focus is on salads and other veggie-based dishes, so most of what I prepped was chopped veggies that can be thrown together in different combinations throughout the week.
  • For breakfast, I made gluten-free bagels and crustless veggie quiche. There is also frozen fruit and bananas to combine with the baby spinach for smoothies (not pictured).
  • For dinner, there is salmon, brown rice, paleo veggie burgers, and roasted carrots (that were later pureed into a soup). 
  • For snacks, there is chopped celery with hummus (not pictured), and roasted spiced chickpeas. 



This is one day late so we already ate some of it. I made Mexican salad in jars for lunches. They have avocado dressing, black bean, chicken, roasted sweet potato, and spinach. Then salt and vinegar kale chips, roasted sweet potatoes, cucumbers and chocolate peanut butter energy balls for snacks. Also made Mexican shredded chicken and beef and cabbage with tomato sauce in the crockpot(looks gross but tastes great!).




I’m a grad student and I spend about 10 hrs a day in lab, so I need stuff to be quick and easy to re-heat during the week for dinners and to pack easily for lunch and snacks during the day.

Since this week is a short one (yay for 3 day weekends!), I did a mini-food prep. I made skinny chicken tortilla soup for dinners, pumpkin pie protein chia seed pudding for breakfasts, my Greek Yogurt Tuna Salad for lunch, and hardboiled some eggs. I also bought fruit, avocados and turkey to snack on!

  1. Do you was your fresh veggies that you cut up ahead of time? If so, do you air dry or towel dry them? I typically don’t wash mine until I eat them, that’s why I ask how you do that.

    • i usually wash, peel and cut carrots and store them in a little bit of water. i wash the lettuce but them spin it dry in my salad spinner.

  2. I love Sunday Meal Prep!

    I usually do this Friday or Saturday.. I’m glad I’m not alone.
    I haven’t quite gotten to this level.. but man oh man.. do I love the variety!
