Meal Prep 5 | Morefitme

Standard

I kept things simple for meal prep because I want fresh ingredients for my meals this week. For breakfast I am having my favorite breakfast bowl (will do a recipe card later this week), which requires a good bit of chopping to save time in the mornings. Otherwise, the meal prep was mostly chopping to skip the prep step in the evenings. I was able to hit my freezer up for beans, rice and meaty marinara sauce, which means my beginning of the month prep is not going to waste. As you can see below, meals this week are best if prepared in the moment:Meal Plan

This time I misspoke in the video. The fajita vegetables I prepared are for burrito bowls, but the same principles apply. Fresh cooked veggies are really the most flavorful and nutritious. Like I stated, this weeks meal prep was simple and finished in under an hour due to frozen ingredients. Details can be seen in the video below:

I am thoroughly enjoying this weeks menu! The seafood gumbo is so flavorful, the mini breakfast casseroles are so very easy and filling, and the peanut butter yogurt dip is always a favorite. Last night’s salmon was delicious and I am looking forward to the other meals I have planned.

Meal prep was pretty involved this week, but it is is well worth the labor. I practically made all of my food for the week and so far that is a good thing. I made sure to freeze half of the gumbo for latter in the week and I plan to eat Banana Nut Oatmeal for breakfast over the weekend. The video below shows all of my prep in great detail:

I decided to use quite a few recipes this week. I am still on my quest to try 50 new recipes this year, and this weeks are welcome additions to my arsenal. Below I have included links to recipes from the video as well as on he meal plan above.
