Meal Prep For 3/11-3/15

This is how I do my meal prep every Sunday.

I made my list.

I list the thing I'm making and then what I need to do to make it.

Today Squirrel was at a friends house so as soon as LB went down for a nap I got busy!

I put the spaghetti squash in the oven for the paleo pad thai along with three chicken breasts seasoned with salt, pepper, and olive oil.

Then I got to work on the pork and brussels.  Literally just ground pork and brussels sprouts cooked in ghee.

While that was cooking I chopped the veggies for the pad thai.  So... many... veggies.

When meal one was done I started working on two.

Paleo pad thai!

While chopping the veggies for the pad thai I set some aside carrots and broccoli for snacks or sides this week.

I also boiled cubed sweet potato in chicken stock and mashed it up for post-workout fuel.  Plus those plain chicken breasts!  Carb + protein right after the gym!

I did soak some almonds for the almond milk too but made the almond milk this evening.

I use this technique for the almond milk.  The key is the nutmilk bag.  It makes it so smooth!  I like it better than coconut milk in my coffee.

It's nothing like the stuff you buy in the store.  Life changer!

Did you meal prep today?

Meal prep is the only thing that gets me through the week insane! I cooked quinoa, beans, chicken and ground bison, washed and cut veggies, and assembled my lunch salads. Yay! Happy Monday

It keeps me on track and makes things a little easier through the week. :)

You do such a great job with your meal prepping. I don't current do this but am considering starting on Sundays.

Aww thank you! It really is a huge relief during the week. I think either you like it or you don't! I've definitely had to learn to like leftovers.
