This weekend was grocery shopping and lots of Meal Prep. Have I ever mentioned how much I hate chopping? It’s so tedious standing in one spot doing such a repetitive task…I’m glad I don’t have to do that every day! Anyway, I made some new overnight oatmeal recipes, tropical green smoothie kits, Italian pasta mason jar salads, fruit salad, snack packs, and more. The beauty is that once it’s done, I don’t have to do it again for weeks!

BREAKFAST: The strawberry peach oatmeal is a new overnight oatmeal recipe (coming soon). The canadian bacon/egg white breakfast sandwiches were made several weeks ago and frozen. A large batch of the pumpkin pie oatmeal will be made Monday or Tuesday night and frozen for later. The Spinach Feta Egg Muffins and the salted caramel oatmeal jars were made last week and frozen. The smoothie pancakes will be made fresh on the weekend.
LUNCH: The Italian pasta mason jar salads were made in advance on the weekend. The bacon ranch chicken will be leftovers from Monday night’s dinner. The turkey and tuna sandwiches will be made up the night before. The tropical green smoothie will be made just before lunch, but I have a smoothie kit already in the freezer! The fruit salad was made over the weekend and stored in half-pint mason jars. The side salads will be made Monday night and stored in pint-size mason jars to keep them fresh.
DINNER: Pretty much all of our dinners will be made just before we eat this week, but I do have components of our meals prepped already! We have taco meat, Italian meat (for pizza), chicken philly meal kits, burgers, and cornflake crusted chicken already in the freezer. I also have hamburger buns, sub buns, wonton wrappers, and Boboli pizza crusts in the freezer. Having things pre-measured and pre-cooked in the freezer makes dinner time much easier for me!
SNACKS: I am keeping the evening snacks (treats) simple. I haven’t been sticking to the evening snack plan as well as I should, but I’m getting better! As usual, I’m have fruit and string cheese for snacks during the day.
|Day||Points+ Used||Weekly Points+ Used|
My plan this week has me using 15 of my weekly points+ allowance. This leaves me with 34 weekly points for last minute changes/additions/splurges and for use on Monday/Tuesday of next week. (My weekly points run Wednesday through Tuesday since I weigh in on Tuesday nights.) I really want to try to stick to my planned evening snacks. If I can do that, it will feel like a successful week!
