Food Prep July 18, 2016

I’ve been doing much better on food prep, and planning has become easier as well. I use for menu planning, and it’s gotten far easier to just add meal prep items to Sunday.

I made a bunch of salads.  Here are two BLT salads (bacon, tomatoes, and lettuce) and two taco salads (cukes, tomatoes, lettuce, and I’ll add meat and cheese on the day I eat them).  The jar on the far right contains spinach, washed and ready to eat.

The other two salads are just regular salads:  carrots, red cabbage, tomatoes, and lettuce. I used romaine lettuce today, and I hope I’ll get some mixed greens when I pick up my CSA tomorrow.

I did a lot of cutting up fruit today as I cut up a watermelon, and I washed two types of grapes and cherries.

More fruit and veggies and from top left:  hard boiled eggs, cut up strawberries, cauliflower, veggies for Weds dinner (cauliflower, carrots, broccoli), green peppers, cucumbers, and washed raspberries.


Tomorrow I will pick up my CSA also, and hope I get really tasty things in it as I have been getting. I have to fix things up the day I get them or they don’t get eaten. Is there anything better than produce freshly picked? I don’t think so.


The fridge is full

Thanks to food prep day.  The top shelf has spinach and a chicken club salad.  Yes, we drink box wine (or at least hubster does).

Second shelf has lots of greens, cherries, salads, quinoa omelette bites, strawberries, third shelf has hard boiled eggs and asian slaw.

Not pictured is the meat for the week, more chicken (from last night’s dinner) and steak from tonight.

We feast this week!

Food Prep planning

3 07 2016

Since we have a holiday tomorrow, I can leisurely plan food prep for tomorrow instead of trying to figure it out on the fly.

I only have to figure out four lunches for the week and the usual dinners.  Dinners are already planned thanks to

For breakfast, I think I will make quinoa omelette bites.

One lunch will be taco salad–leftover taco meat and olives, cucumber, tomato, lettuce, sour cream and chips.

Two lunches will be chicken club salads-chicken, bacon, tomato, lettuce, tomato, dressing.

Chicken Power Bowl for the last lunch (on Thursday)


Grilled steak and chicken, Monday  Sides:  Asian slaw and corn on the cob.

Leftovers, Tuesday (leftover slaw and chicken)

Goulash, Wednesday

Steak salad, Thursday with leftover steak.

Fried rice, Friday (use last of leftover chicken)

Hamburgers, Saturday

Beef Yakitori, Sunday


Chicken Power bowl:  roasted chick peas (do tomorrow), hard boiled egg, leftover chicken, spinach, and pistachios.  Need to hard boil one egg for this, and boil 5 more for protein treats.

Quinoa Omelette bites need some spinach, and cooked quinoa.

Prep three romaine lettuce hearts.

Should be a fairly easy prep day, except that I will get out my brand new spiralizer for the cole slaw.
