There are a couple things that I have been trying to focus on more lately in my meal preps: budget-friendly and relatively easy to do. This meal prep succeeds in both! A lot the ingredients are things that I keep stocked in our pantry. And all the recipes were pretty quick to put together and get cooking!
I decided to go with some of our favorites this week for our snacks: Cookie Dough Protein Balls, Peanut Butter Banana Oat Muffins and No Bake Maple Vanilla Nut Latte Protein Balls! Other than our regular protein balls, I’m pretty sure that these Maple Vanilla ones are my new favorite! I love the addition of the coffee 🙂
For this week’s main dishes, I made a couple new dishes: Slow Cooker Wild Rice, Quinoa & Chicken Soup, and One Pot Chicken and Broccoli Rice! Both were pretty tasty, though Draz and I agreed that we would like the soup to be more flavorful. I think if I make that one again I’m going to be adding a lot more seasoning to it! It was a good base to start with though 🙂 I think the chicken and rice was Draz’s favorite and I will probably be making that one again soon!
For our other two main dishes for this week’s meal prep, I made Healthy Kung Pao Chicken and more Baked Beef Chimichangas. I think Draz might be a bit hooked on those Chimichangas right now haha! Both of these turned out as delicious as they always do!
