Meal Prep 2 | Morefitme

Standard

Another week and a new meal prep video. Instead of cooking meals, I like to prepare ingredients to make putting meals together simple during the week. I like cooking fresh meals each day, so I pretty much always cook dinner, with the exception of bean or curried dishes as they taste better once they sit for a day. This week’s menu is as follows:Meal Planner

 

I added my list of groceries and headed to the store. Once home, I made a list of what I needed to prep for a quick and organized Sunday. I filmed my meal prep, video is below:

Cooking Tips

  • Leave chicken to brine for at least an hour, but no more than 2.5 hours
  • Frequently check roasting vegetables, flavor is lost if overcooked
  • For eggs, I heat water with eggs until it boils, then turn off and let sit covered for 13 minutes
  • I freeze extra rice in two portions in Ziplock bags
