Hi, hope your weekend has been a good one. Here are a few things I’ve included in this weeks meal prep on my plate. .
Zucchini, green beans, hard boiled eggs, plain gluten free pasta, tomatoes and @safecatchfoods citrus pepper tuna (zestmylemon for 10% off). You can always add leftover chicken, shrimp or salmon instead. .
I’ve tried prepping full meals at a time but then the day after I find myself not so much in the mood for what I made. Then I end up buying lunch out or making something else anyway. So I focus on prepping and keeping my favorites on hand like hard boiled eggs, chickpeas, avocado etc. I usually prepare some grains as well like rice, pasta, buckwheat, farro or quinoa. Then instead of roasting the veggies I just cut them up and store them in air tight container and bags so I can just throw them in the toaster oven or the oven for dinner, a single serve meal or raw and fresh to a salad or to eat with a dip like hummus. I always keep a variety of fresh greens and herbs on hand. Lastly I always keep the flavor essentials on hand like lemon, olive oil, seasonings, garlic. I hate wasting food so this is what works for me. What are some of your essential weekly meal prep items that you always like to have on hand?
Chop-chop veggie + salmon plate . I love prepping roasted veggies for an easy addition to my weekday meals. Here I made zucchini + onion, eggplant w/ cayenne, and butternut squash roasted w/EVOO, salt, and pepper. My salmon burger was cooked on the skillet cut into bites and I added some gyoza while it cooked for extra flavor. Anyone else love to prep veggies? #carolinecooksclean
