Tips for meal prepping
One thing I'm trying to do for you (and me!) is to start small habits that will soon become second nature when it comes to planning the week's meals. The goal is to get the meal on the table quickly, without a ton of work or expense.
Most meals include protein, starch, and vegetables. We're trying to keep meals balanced while emphasizing vegetables in the plan. By all means, if there's something you'd prefer, don't hesitate to substitute!
Weekly Meal Prep
If you have time on Sunday, there are a few items you can prepare in advance.
Dice the onions, carrots and celery - place them in reusable plastic containers or ziplock bags in preparation for your meals throughout the week.
For the banana bread, the darker the bananas the sweeter they will be! If the skin isn't dark, place the bananas in a paper bag on the counter. In just a couple of days, they will turn dark and be perfect for baking later in the week.
Sunday - Lemon Pepper Chicken
This lemon pepper marinade for chicken is so good! It tenderizes the chicken while imparting amazing flavor. Marinade the chicken (or pork, it's great for that as well!) for about an hour and it's good to go!
Monday - One Pot American Goulash
Tuesday - Chicken Tortellini Soup
30 minute Chicken Tortellini Soup is really simple! It’s delicious and savory, filled vegetables and deep rich broth – hearty and satisfying!
Use the chicken breast we reserved earlier this week for the protein in this meal!
Wednesday - Slow Cooker Roast Beef
Easy to make with only a handful of ingredients, this roast beef is tasty and delicious.
Slow cooker roast beef with french onion soup keeps it moist and tender. It's a great recipe that is simple to make.
Thursday - Split Pea Soup
Do you still have leftover ham in the freezer? If not, add a ham steak to your grocery list.
It's the start to the amazing split pea soup recipe! You can save some time by meal prepping a few items in advance.
If you have some leftover dinner rolls, enjoy them with this meal! If not make Cheesy Breadsticks!
Friday - Asian Beef and Broccoli
Saturday - One Pot American Goulash
Banana Nut Bread
Now I might be biased, but this old-fashioned Banana Nut Bread Recipe has been handed down for generations. It's hands down my favorite! It's moist and tender and a real treat!
