Hey everyone! This week’s meal prep was a little different, in that I actually prepped for most of 2 weeks worth of food at the same time. I knew the following weekend I wasn’t going to have much time for meal prep, so I planned ahead! That is one of the things I love about meal prep…you can make it work for you and your schedule! So along with the dishes I’m sharing with you today, I also made extra cinnamon bread and 3 main dishes that all went into the freezer.
Next week I will show you the second week’s freezer prep and let you know how that worked out, so make sure to check back in then! As for this week’s meal prep, everything turned out delicious and I can’t wait to share these recipes with you. While two of these dishes are new to the blog, we actually tried them out a few weeks ago, right before I got sick, so I never actually got to eat them! Thankfully, Draz liked them so much that he was happy for me to make them again a few weeks later so I could try them too!
This week’s snacks were delicious! I opted to keep with our regular snacks this week, so I made Sweet Potato Banana Bites, 5-Ingredient Banana Bread Muffins, and Cookie Dough Protein Balls. Along with that, I made 4 mason jar salads! For now, I will be cutting down on the salads I’m making each week. Draz has requested no more salads for him for a while, so it will just be mine 🙂
On to the main dishes! I am loving this week’s meals and Draz did too. All of these will definitely be made again! I don’t know that either of us could pick a sole favorite. They were all delicious in their own way! This week’s main dishes were Slow Cooker Italian Red Pepper Chicken, Low-Carb Sausage and Roasted Peppers Mock Lasagna Casserole, and Low-Carb Deconstructed Pizza. Both of the low-carb dishes were from a site that is new to me called Kalyn’s Kitchen and I have to say, I will definitely be trying out more of her recipes!
Tracking macros? Here is how this week’s main dishes break down:
