Food Prep In the Kitchen

Meal Prep Monday!

December 1, 2015

  It was great to have an extra day at home to spend time with family and get my meal prep on! I had been to the store earlier in the weekend and gathered the items and ingredients I needed to set myself up for meal success this week. I decided to label my containers to make it easier for my husband to make healthy choices also.

This week I prepared turkey taco meat from the Fixate cookbook. This is one of my favorite things to eat. I put some in a whole wheat tortilla with a little bit of shredded cheese and it is really delicious. 

I cooked up some chicken breast two different ways. Some I’ve made with hot sauce which I also eat in a tortilla with a bit of shredded cheese  and the other chicken I cooked up with some Aminos. That way it’s ready for me to whip up a quick stirfry with vegetables I have on hand. Of course, I hard-boiled some eggs because those are a quick go to protein and my daughter also likes eggs salad for lunch these days. We had potatoes left so I decided to make some home fries with onion, salt & pepper, and paprika. I had some hot Italian turkey sausage that I cooked and I will eat that with fresh pasta and grandma’s tomato sauce I have left from last week. That tomato sauce is also in the Fixxate cookbook and it is amazing! I made a vegetable egg bake instead of egg muffin cups this week. We will see how that goes. It came out kind of flat!  🙂
Food items I have on hand for the week are celery & carrots and hummus to eat with those. I have some avocados, a spaghetti squash, a butternut squash, frozen vegetables, a variety of fruits and tomatoes.

I already started a list for some ingredients I consumed during the meal prep or noticed were running low. But I can head into the week confident – with the odds in my favor for success!
