Time for more food prep inspiration!
Here’s what I made last weekend:
Here’s what you guys have been up to:
We prepped: chopped lettuce, hard boiled eggs, baked chicken breast, quinoa, and your quinoa breakfast bars!
Nancy at Resolution Road –
- A gazillion turkey meatballs. I used 4, 20oz packages.
- Asian cole slaw
- Roasted zucchini and squash
- Sauteed garlic green beans
- About 7 baked sweet potatoes
- A pot of black rice pilaf
- I marinated about 15 chicken drumsticks (didn’t cook them)
What’s not included, but will also be eaten this week, is Mediterranean Tuna Salad (made on Friday) and chicken drumsticks (made on Monday). I packaged several meals for hubby and I to take to work for lunch. I feel certain that once I get used to this and get into rhythm it will take me even less time! Yay, me!
Maria at Lil Mys Ninja –
- HB eggs
- breakfast casserole
- fruit snack packs
- chicken salad for lunch sandwiches
- diced pork marinating for dinner this week (2nd pack went in the freezer)
- 2 salads in a jar
The cooked ground beef is for dinner later this week and the cooked chicken sausage will be frozen for the next breakfast casserole. The Rotisserie style chicken (using Lindsay’s/your crockpot method!) was shredded to top salads and to make the chicken salad. I kept the wings, legs & a thigh for PJ to make his own chicken salad, then froze whatever remaining shreds for later use.
I also picked up 2 ready made salads from Earth Fare using a coupon and a yogurt parfait this week. I had leftover diced cheese for snacking this week & pulled out the leftover pasta sauce I froze from last week to use in Monday night’s dinner.
Julie at Girl on the Move –
#1 – Banana Muffins …Love being able to grab a couple of these in the morning!
#2 – Hard-boiled eggs…I should really look into owning chickens!
#3 – Salsa chicken – Seriously this is the easiest way to prep chicken and I think everyone should have some of this on hand at all times because there are so many creative ways that you can use it. All I do is throw chicken and salsa in the crockpot and set it on low. Once it’s cooked I shred the chicken and I’m ready to go!
#4 – Taco Flavored Turkey – Cooked up some ground turkey with taco seasoning to use on salads, nachos, tacos, etc this week!
Moriah at Tri Or Bust –
A kale and sweet potato Fritatta (to eat with an orange after teaching fitness classes)
A Turkey and Veggie Hash (for lunch)
Chocolate coconut protein balls (for snacks)
Apple Almond Coconut cookies (for breakfast with my protein shake)
And homemade Almond Butter (to add to protein shakes) (forgot to put it in the picture!)
Katie at Peace Love & Oats –
