Food Prep and Meal Plan #2

I love long weekends.  Of course I have more fun reasons, such as extra days off from work, but it also makes food prep and meal planning a little easier.  With Matt being home an extra day, I don’t need to worry about prepping a meal ahead of time.  And because of the long weekend, I am posting a day behind…all messed up!

Here is what I prepped for this week’s breakfast, lunch and snacks:

A pitcher of green iced tea

fruit cups

yogurt – add fruit in the morning

A batch of Quinoa Oatmeal from the cookbook Thug Kitchen (you can find the recipe here!) – add fruit in the morning

Tuna salad for lunch (in lettuce wraps or on a small salad – prep the veggies ahead of time to throw together each day)

carrots and cucumbers with hummus

Shakeology (not pictured)

Here is what I have planned for this upcoming week for dinner:

  • Caramelized Onion, Gruyere, and Bacon Pizza on the grill – I am going to try and make a pizza dough recipe from the cookbook Comfort and Joy: Cooking for Two to scale it down (You can find the recipe here!).  And I will use a cast-iron skillet to cook it in.  Sides will include a small salad and roasted red potato.
    • Prep ahead – make the pizza dough, slice the onions, grate the cheese, and cook the bacon

* I already made the pizza and it came out so good!

  • Chicken and steak on the grill with corn on the cob
  • Turkey Santa Fe Taco Salad from The Skinnytaste Cookbook
    • Prep ahead – defrost the meat the night before and then cook and chop the veggies
  • One Skillet Beef and Cheddar Pasta from the cookbook Comfort and Joy: Cooking for Two
    • Prep ahead – defrost meat the night before and shred the cheese
  • Black bean burgers from the freezer

  • Using a Groupon for a local smokehouse!

Knowing that we are going to have a heat wave this week, I planned my meals so I would not have to use the oven!

  1. Love how organized u are… I’m getting better! Prepped some freezer meals today – turkey chili, taco meat, and sloppy joes. Will pan sear some chicken in coconut oil for supper tomorrow night and then use leftovers for salads 😉
