Meal prep is bacccckkkkkk

15 01 2017

Yep, we’re back doing food prep and taking pictures of the prep. I’ve been doing food prep off and on. I’ve found, though, that I really need to map out food prep on paper. I’m old school, I guess. I can put stuff on the web, but it sticks in my head better if I write it down.

I spent a lot of time prepping today.  I started fairly early, and made wild rice and hardboiled eggs.  I made a breakfast omelet this morning, and we’ll eat the leftovers for the week.

I chopped celery, lettuce, and a red onion.  From top left:  celery sticks, red onion, English peas, romaine lettuce, baked omelet, baby carrots, chopped carrots and celery for Wednesday’s stir fry, and sliced green pepper.


I made two Western salads for hubster, with red kidney beans, cheese, red onion, chopped green peppers, cherry tomatoes, chopped lettuce, and a hard boiled egg.  Hubster will take a small container of his favorite dressing.



I seeded a few pomegranates.  I can eat these arils by themselves, but they are so tasty in a salad.wp-1484538317581.jpg

I used the arils to put together a couple of really tasty salad meals.  Wild rice, baked chicken, cherry tomatoes, lettuce, English peas, and pomegranate.  I’ll eat this with a splash of lemon juice.  So tasty.


This is my protein/veggie box.  Hard boiled egg, Havarti cheese, cherry tomatoes, celery sticks, and sliced green peppers.  Will eat these with either Trader Joe’s three cheese crackers or pretzels.


Last but not least.  We had steak for dinner, and had a lovely amount of leftovers.  I plan leftovers with Sunday meals at the very least (most dinners we eat give us leftovers, but Sunday dinners are planned with extra meat to eat at another dinner later in the week).


The rest of the menu:

Monday–beef stuffed shells (from the freezer–I make one dish and divide it into thirds and freeze two of them)


Wednesday–chicken stir fry


Friday–steak sandwiches

Saturday -taco pie (also from the freezer)

Workouts for the week:






Saturday–protest march downtown



It’s going to be a busy week, with several study visits and a new study starting!  Yay!
