Time for more food prep. We’re back with more food prep this week!
Here’s what I prepped last weekend:
- Beef lasagna for hubby
- Black beans
- Extra ground beef with peppers and onions
- Spaghetti squash
- Quinoa breakfast bars
- Chicken & Mung Bean soup with veggies
- HB eggs
- Baked Cod
- Baked chicken
- Froyo bites
- Green Beans
- Lettuce for salads
And since a lot of you ask whether we eat all this food/if we waste a lot…here’s what was left after dinner on Thursday:
I try not to make more than we can eat in about 4 days. The exceptions are hard boiled eggs and breakfast bars. We usually finish those up over the weekend. This week we didn’t do great on salad. Some weeks we eat it all, some weeks we have some lettuce that goes bad. I also had about 1/4 c black beans and a little spaghetti squash left which I had for lunch on Friday. The only miss this week was the fish. I cooked it but I was just NOT in the mood to eat it. I ate about half, putting it in some soup, etc…but I did have some leftover. You can’t win them all! Everything else was eaten.
So, the picture above was Thursday night. By Friday at lunch the eggs, breakfast bar, beans and almost all the squash was gone. The only things I threw away this week was about half a head of lettuce and half the fish.
Here’s what some of you guys have been making!
