my current weekly meal prep. My week goes so much smoother if I take time on the weekend (or sometimes Monday morning) and prep for meals. I also do MUCH better sticking to my weight watchers points throughout the week if I've got meals ready to go.
Meal prep usually takes about a total of 3 hours: 1 hour at the grocery store, and 2 hours in the kitchen + clean up.
Here's what my current weekly meal prep looks like:
beef stir fry with veggies: broccoli, carrots, cabbage, zucchini, stew beef from skyviewfarms, coconut aminos
chopped carrots, broccoli, and onion for chicken salad or egg salad.
frittata: sweet potato, onion, zucchini, broccoli, and eggs
whole chicken in crock pot (cooked over night and meat taken off in the morning).
spaghetti sauce with veggies: home canned tomatoes, home frozen broccoli, carrots, and squash (blech--leave out next time!), onion, preserved basil, ground beef from skyview farms, quinoa, and homemade tomato paste (cooked overnight)
I also make sure there are veggies cut up for snacking (and lately I've been buying hummus), and fruit to grab when I need a sweet treat (and I'm out of girl scout cookies).
Spending a little extra time in the kitchen makes our weeknights a little less crazy, and a little more tasty.
