Oh Sunday, you're back again... At least we now have football to make the day seem a little bit brighter!
We are yinzers at heart in this family, so Steeler Sunday is almost religion around here. We have a dog named Pouncey, our son has his own terrible towel, and every Sunday is strategically planned around kickoff. Ridiculous you may say? Our response... HERE WE GO!!!
Meal Prep Sunday is still in full swing and this week I'm going to share my ENTIRE meal plan with you. You can see exactly what a custom meal plan looks like with all recipes, notes, nutrition info, and grocery list. You can download and use it for your meal prep next week! You're welcome...
I made 1 breakfast + overnight oats, 2 different lunches, and a couple snacks for the week. I'll be home to make dinner most nights and will use those leftovers for dinner when I work late.
I saved myself some time and used rotisserie chicken for the Lemon Chicken Salad recipe and am going to use sliced cucumbers to make little sandwiches for lunch instead.
I added some brown rice (precooked cups) to my Sweet Paprika Shrimp and collard greens, but you can always swap in cauliflower rice for a lower carb option. Fresh berries are hard (and expensive) to come by right now, so I used frozen for my yogurt parfaits and overnight oats.
Start your prep with the frittata, then move on to make the shrimp while it bakes. You can then prep the chicken salad while your collard greens boil and finish with the parfaits and overnight oats. I would recommend only storing the oats in the fridge 1-2 days, so doing those the night before you eat them is ideal. Divide it all into your prep containers, and BAM a week of breakfasts and lunches ready to go!
Not only does meal planning help you eat healthier and save a lot of time, but you'll be surprised how much you will cut off your grocery bill. Think of all the impulse buys you grab "just in case" and how much you end up throwing in the trash at the end of the week. Planning ahead will help you avoid buying things you don't need and wasting food you'll never eat.
