Sorry for dropping off the blogosphere last week, I have been fighting a sinus cold and making coherent thoughts was a bit of a challenge after a long day at work. I am back this week & will be posting a few round ups along with having my first GUEST blogger on wednesday!
Today’s elf4health challenge is Meal Planning/food prep! If you know me much or have followed my blog in the past I (typically) sit down every Sunday and prep our meals for the week. So this challenge is fun & easy for me since it is already part of my weekly plan!
I typically focus on making our lunches so in the morning we just have to grab a container & apple and then our lunch is set for the week. That does mean I have very little variety in my weekly lunches so I try to make 2-3 dinner meals a week that will help bring variety to our life.
The past few weeks we have been pretty lazy when it comes to dinners & my meal planning has focused completely on lunches & snacks. However, with an upcoming week of feasting I knew that I wanted to get a week of good foods in before indulging in the holiday season!
Heres this weeks plan:
Breakfast – Protein Pancakes
Lunches – Pork Tenderloin Salad & Vegetable Soup
- Shredded Buffalo Chicken – made yesterday!
- Nutritionella’s Broccoli Stem Veggie Burgers
- Quinoa Sausage Stuffed Squash
Christmas Cookies from FitFoodieFinds
Sundays Prep Plan — Make burgers, prep veggies for squash, make & portion out lunches
Alright now off to the gym then the grocery store to get this food prep started! Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday you definitely deserve it!
Do you food prep? Whats your favorite holiday cookie?
