Meal Prep Recipes Coming Soon!

Ya’ll asked and I’m delivering! Everyone has asked for help with meal prepping, recipes, how to do the thing, etc, so here we go! I’ll be posting each recipe I make as its own separate post.  You can always return to the top banner and click ‘Meal Prep’ to see all of them.

Meal Prep Basics:

Let’s get started on some basics.  Meal prepping isn’t rocket science and it’s definitely not brain surgery, but it does take a little planning.  Oh boy… planning… That’s what I’m here for.

First, you’ll need some containers.  The OCD in me requires all the containers to be the same size so the stack and store well whether in the refrigerator/freezer, or in the cabinet. If you aren’t as neurotic as I am, any freezer and microwave safe containers will do.  I found the ones we use at BJ’s Wholesale Club, but Amazon also has a ton of great options (like these).  Make sure you get enough for as many meals as you’ll be preparing. 🙂

Second, if you’re a planner freak like me, I LOVE my Erin Condren Meal Planning planner insert.  I write on it with a Vis-a-Vis marker (you know like for the overhead projectors!).  I plan out the different meals I will mass prep and on the back I create my shopping list. Get yours here.

Third, consider downloading the app Flipp.  This is where I scour the circulars for the best deals on the items on my list.  This app has saved me so much money and I love how everything is in one place!

I usually choose 3 different lunch/dinner meals to prep and a breakfast for 2 adults for the week.  Whatever we don’t eat, we toss in the freezer.

Now that we have the 3 most important things out in the open, make sure to subscribe to my email list and share this post with your friends so ya’ll never miss out on a meal prep update.  Start thinking about some meals you LOVE! and let’s get to prepping!  Hit me with all your questions and your favorite meals and I’ll help you mass prep!!

This Week’s Menu Planning 4/25-5/1

On April 20th, we started our 2nd round of The 21 Day Sugar Detox.  It’s a lot easier this time now that I have kept up with the original routine of prepping foods for the week, and since we generally eat VERY low sugar Paleo, it’s been a breeze and I haven’t missed much.   Continue reading “This Week’s Menu Planning 4/25-5/1”

This Week’s Menu Planning (2/23/15-2/27/15)

Sydney’s Guacamole (Paleo, Low-FODMAP, GF, DF)

So, you decided to go to Chipotle for dinner. You’re standing in line-burrito, white rice, black beans chicken, lettuce, tomato, fresh cilantro, & then you say ‘Guac please’, to which the burrito maker says ‘That’ll be $2.50 extra, is that ok?’…. Ok, it might not be $2.50 exactly, but it’s some ungodly price for a freakin tablespoon of guac… After making and trying my guacamole, you’ll be able to say ‘um, HA! Heck no!’ to that insanely priced dollop of sad green goo.  My guac is THE bomb.com, and I’m a self appointed guacamole connoisseur

So, to keep from torturing you any more, here comes the recipe! Continue reading “Sydney’s Guacamole (Paleo, Low-FODMAP, GF, DF)”

This Week’s Menu Planning (12/15/14-12/19/14)

At first, when I started along the AIP/ Paleo/ Low-FODMAP friendly journey, I had no idea where to even begin with grocery shopping. On my typical trip to  Harris Teeter I spend a majority of my time in the produce section and along the perimeter of the store.  Lately, I’ve been loving spicy dishes and ones requiring fresh herbs – basil or cilantro, to name a few.

This week, I’ve planned our meals out so I could effectively grocery shop.  Here’s what’s on the menu: Continue reading “This Week’s Menu Planning (12/15/14-12/19/14)”
