Hey everyone! Welcome to this Sunday’s meal prep! I have been trying to focus on keeping things relatively inexpensive and quick to prepare lately and this week is no exception. So no new recipes from me this week, but a few of our quick favorites!
Now, this week I did things a little different. (For everyone new: My meal prep posts are staggered, so this is LAST week’s meal prep) My Saturday after we did our grocery shopping was really busy. I participated in my local Trunk or Treat event, which is put on by a church here in town. Local businesses and organizations come, decorate their vehicles and hand out candy to the kids! It’s a great time for the community to meet local businesses and its a fun, safe festival! There was even a bouncy house with these fun jousting batons and free food!
So I went to represent my jewelry business and to get my name out there more in the local community. It was so much fun! But…it meant for a busy day. So instead of doing my meal prep all at once, I did the snack prep when we got home before the Trunk or Treat and then did the rest of our meal prep after I woke up! It worked out great, except for my dad eating 2 of my muffins! Just kidding Dad, I’m glad you like them 🙂
Ok, enough of my rambling….on to the meal prep! Enjoy!
For the snacks I went with our top 3 favorites, all of which can be found over in my Meal Prep Staples! Peanut Butter Banana Oat Muffins, Protein Balls and Sweet Potato Banana Bites 🙂 Outside of the fact that they are all delicious, I love that they have so many overlapping ingredients. I’m able to get them put together pretty much all at the same time, which cuts down on time and dirty measuring spoons! I also made some more Maple Vanilla Nut Latte Protein Bites, just because I like them so much!
I did also of course make our regular salads and grapes with cheese!
Our main dishes of the week: Chicken Vindaloo, Thai Peanut Chicken Pasta, and Healthy Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls. All of them turned out as tasty as ever, but the Chicken Vindaloo was definitely my favorite of the week, which Draz favored the Thai Peanut Chicken Pasta.
I did end up having to make one slight adjustment out of necessity. While I was making the Unstuffed Cabbage Rolls, I realized that I forgot to pick up a second can of fire roasted tomatoes. I can say with certainty that, while you can make it without it, it tastes much better with the second can!
