Meal Prepping Week of 2-26-17
Breakfasts: I’m going to play it very simple this week and switch between eggs on toast and protein-oatmeal depending on what I need. Only eggs, bread, and frozen raspberries are new from the store this week. Pantry and fridge pull-ins will be hot sauce, toum, and frickles (fridge pickles) for the egg and toast. For the protein-oatmeal, pantry pull-ins are: protein powder, stevia, cinnamon, vanilla, and chia seeds if I need the fiber boost (I usually don’t but I have two huge Costco bags to use up).
Lunches: It’s a freezer clear out jamboree! We still have plenty of our “superfood” chili, black bean soup, and lentil burgers. See, this is why I don’t think I’m going to need to call upon the powers of chia this week. Nothing new coming from the store for lunch, though the lentil burgers will probably leech off the fresh vegetables, onions, and frickles for topping purposes.
Dinners: Some nights we’ll have the leftover lentil burgers. I’ll roast up the brussel sprouts I’m grabbing on those nights. Roasted brussel sprouts with some olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and salt/pepper (pantry pull ins). BOMB. Most of the new ingredients from the store this week are going to be for tofu taco bowls, cabbage slaw in lime vinaigrette, and an avocado/jalapeno crema over green rice. Pantry pull-ins are going to be brown rice, salt, pepper, cayenne, cumin, coriander, white wine vinegar, vegetable stock, and grapeseed oil. The rice will be cooked in the vegetable stock and then added to it will be a puree of spinach, cilantro, garlic, salt, and pepper. See! Green rice! The slaw is going to be made from an average green cabbage, red onion, yellow bell pepper, radishes, and poblano peppers. The vinaigrette will use limes, salt, pepper, white wine vinegar, molasses, cayenne, and cilantro. The avocado-jalapeno crema will be avocados, jalapeno, salt, pepper, and coconut yogurt. The tofu (which I only need to grab one, have another in the fridge) will just be drained, pressed, and marinated in salt, pepper, garlic, and lime.
Snacks: Going to grab some almonds, bananas, and strawberries. Looked up the Meijer ad and 5/$5, baby! I still have all the ingredients for my protein shakes, so those are all pantry pull ins. Well, almond milk is being replaced, but shh!
