Meal Prepping Made Easy

Why meal prep? So you can throw together this tasty bowl in 5 minutes flat for those busy week days. 

Meal prep can really be as simple and quick as you have time for over the weekend. I like to do a little each day because of this crazy SoCal heat and no AC, the days of spending half a Sunday in the kitchen are over till it cools off. 

Upon rising Saturday I start cleaning and chopping veggies. I love carrots, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, zucchini, etc to roast in the oven with Chosen Foods avocado oil, sea salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and turmeric at 375 degrees. I usually add some curry powder to the carrots to kick it up a notch. By 9 am I have my veggies all roasted and ready for the week. I usually buy my organic meat at Costco in bulk and have my sweet hubby “BBQ master”  grill it up on the weekend when he is already grilling meat for another meal. We just throw it all on at once (chicken, turkey burgers, and even Applegate organic hot dogs, etc) Some weeks I will do organic corn on the cob in a pot of boiling water and other weeks I will have hubby grill it depending on grill space. This gives us some tasty veggie and protein options for the week that we can build quick and easy meals around. I also love to make a tasty treat like banana muffins, protein bars/ balls, etc so we have a healthy snack and of course some homemade bread (blender bread or paleo English muffin tops) but those aren’t really a necessity for meal prep if you prefer to buy your bread and protein bars. Buying fresh herbs and citrus make the meals come alive and having tasty dips is always a meal prep bonus even if you buy hummus or fun salsas to make the meals special and different each week. These are just a few ways to quickly and easily incorporate meal prep into your week
