Time for more Sunday Food Prep!
Since hubby was out of town Sunday – Wednesday this past week, I didn’t do much food prep…just made it a goal to use up what we had on hand! But here’s what some of you have been up to!
This Sunday was my first ever food prep. I don’t eat meat but I make food for both my husband and I. So I made:
Ham and Cheese Egg Bakes
Hard Boiled Eggs
Romaine and Spinach Salad
Lauren at Mindful Meals :
Roasted Brussel sprouts
Salads w grilled chicken
Jeanette Marie at Fit Girl Travels :
Pumpkin Protein Muffins:
To kick off the fall season, I made some yummy pumpkin protein muffins. I usually whip up a batch, put them in small Ziploc baggies, and then stick them in the freezer – that way they’re ready anytime I need a quick breakfast, snack or even dessert. Since I’m especially short on time in the mornings, I usually bring these into the office, heat them up in the micro really quick, and eat them at my desk – my coworkers always comment on how good they smell!
ToneIt Up Minestrone Soup:
My husband said this is the best soup he’s ever eaten! It was also very easy and inexpensive to make!
Coconut Aloha Granola:
Super easy to make and tastes good by itself, as cereal, or on top of Greek yogurt or ice cream (if you want a special treat!). I store this in an air-tight container so it stays fresh throughout the week.
Chopped Fruits and Veggies:
I’ve been ordering a veggie box from a farm in my local area – it makes food prep a lot faster and easier when I have a week’s supply of fruits and veggies delivered right to my door. I usually chop them up and use them in smoothies (like this Green Goddess Smoothie) and dishes throughout the week! I don’t do this all the time because the veggie box can get a bit expensive, but it’s a nice treat every now and then!
Jenna from Urban Fitopia :
Last week I made 3-tomato pasta sauce, pumpkin and sweet potato soup, roasted acorn squash, roasted Brussels sprouts and sautéed some kale and ginger. I usually try to make a bunch of side dishes that I can use to mix and match throughout the week. That way, I feel like I’m eating something new everyday but don’t have to spend the time prepping on a weeknight.
Kelly at Okanagan RD :
Kale/tofu calzones, apple almond crisp (with local almonds!), a strange almond spread (needs work, but we still ate it all), zucchini/carrot/apple muffins and bars (iced for fun), apple pie millet ready to go in the slow cooker, breaded tofu “pumpkins”, a few of the beautiful vegetables we had this week, roasted red pepper hummus, baba ghanouj, and homemade pitas!
Everything looks delicious, as always!
