Meal Prep Meals

All meals I ate today were made yesterday. After reading through your comments yesterday and today I started to really think about meal prepping. "Is it worth it" really came to my mind a lot. After today I can tell you it was TOTALLY worth it.  It looks overwhelming and hard but it's really not.  Make a list of meals, make a list of groceries, and get going.  Set aside time to succeed.  Seriously, there are NO excuses.

Breakfast:

That ground pork mixture I made yesterday plus two eggs.  This took a little longer because I had to cook the eggs.

And coffee made with foamy coconut milk.


I just use my milk frother.

Why does it make it taste so much better?

Gym:  An hour of pilates and 30 minutes on the stairclimber.

Snack:  
I forgot my snack at home and didn't have anything in my bag.  Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.  I failed. I thought a coffee would tide me over until lunch but then I walked into the coffee place.

I walked out with a large coffee and two bon bons.  Was it worth it.... yes... They were freaking amazing.  AND they are locally made by South'n France here in Wilmington.

Lesson learned- Always go through the drive-thru.

Lunch:

Stir fry beef with sunshine sauce.  This took one minute to make.  Literally one minute in the microwave.

Plus a strawberry kombucha.


Dinner:

Pulled pork from yesterday plus salt and vinegar cabbage and sautéed veggies.  Another minute or two meal.  Everything was made yesterday.

I'm thinking of installing Disqus to my blog for comments.  I'm so tired of not replying in a feed.  Do any of you use a third party for comments?  If you have Disqus how do you like it?

I use it and like it...but I will say that some of my non-technical friends (older generation) have a hard time with it. I've noticed it works best with new browsers...ie 8&9, Google chrome, etc. With all that said I still like it!

I need to do meal planning and prep on Sundays, I just need to make it a priority, simple as that.

I love your prep stuff! I was doing really good at that...I need to get back to it :)

I planned today and it worked so well. Dinner out a friend's house. She prepared kale salad and broiled salmon, and one of our friends brought roasted butternut squash. What a perfect meal. I'm going to add butternut squash to next weekend's cooking.

Out of curiosity, what does kombucha taste like? It seems to be VERY trendy right now and I have been curious about it but have not tried it. Is it one of those things that I just need to buy and give a try? Do you have opinions on the best flavors to try?

I don't know what Disqus is, but I'll help give it a try with you! :) I had my first taste of kombucha on Sunday!! I loved it--sooooo good!

I am in love with my meal prep. It definitely is a lifesaver for me because I never have time to cook during the week. Dinner would be bowls of cereal every night without meal prep. I'm so jealous of your milk frother. I might have to get one. It must make morning coffee amazing!
