Meal Prep Sunday back again! If you like what you see, you can download this full plan at the bottom of the page. I'm trying out a lot of new recipes this week, so we'll see how they go. The macro split on this one is less carb/higher fat with a 40/30/30 ratio. You can always substitute a leaner protein like ground turkey or chicken instead of the red meat as lower fat options. The plan averages out to around 1700 calories a day and is built for 2 people. Check the notes in the recipes for suggestions and substitutions for ingredients you may not like or have on hand.
What's on the Menu:
There is one breakfast to prep this week and that's the Cauliflower & Egg Breakfast Muffins. I would start with these and move on to the other recipes while they bake. You can always package up single servings of the Winter Berry Smoothies and freeze them to save some time in the mornings.
We are going to prep both lunches this week and I'll be using one as dinner for my late night at work. I used a rotisserie chicken from the deli for the Chicken Salad w/Lemon Garlic Tahini Dressing to save cook time. You can make your dressing up and store it in a covered container in the fridge for the week. I would prep the Brown Rice Noodles & Veggies with ground beef while your egg muffins bake. I use an Instant Pot for my hard boiled eggs (takes 7 minutes) - make sure to prep enough for your salads and snacks for the week.
I've been liking the combo of crockpot meals and quick 30 minute dinners. I will be able to use the Slow Cooker Hawaiian Beef for two dinners this week. The Zucchini Noodles with Cauliflower Alfredo and Shiratake Noodle Chicken Stir Fry can be on the table in 30 minutes after work. I haven't tried any of these recipes before, so looking forward to something different!
If you're looking to make something sweet for your Valentine this week, check out my previous post for a Homemade Box of Chocolates recipe book. You'll get added bonus points for the extra effort... 😉 They also make great gifts for daycare workers, friends, family, and even the kiddos!
