Oh. My. Gosh. Y’all….seriously, this meal prep is delicious! I have been excited to share this meal prep with you ALL WEEK. 3 new recipes, including one impulse decided-to-make-during-prep type of recipe haha. Usually I’m not one to impulse make dishes that aren’t planned out, but this one I just had to give a try! And when you already have all the ingredients needed and ready…well, it’s an easy and delicious decision to make!
So, to kick things off, our snacks and smaller meal! The snacks were pretty basic – my celery and sliced turkey and Peanut Butter Chocolate Protein Balls! The smaller meal was the impulse make, inspired by a recipe I saw on Instagram! These are basically a healthier and tastier version of cup noodles, and far more satisfying too!
- a mixture of curry base, chili garlic sauce and sesame oil on the bottom
- frozen corn
- shredded napa cabbage
- chopped broccoli
- cooked thin spaghetti
Overall, pretty basic, right!? But oh so good. You just add boiling water and let it “steep” for a while, then enjoy! And there are so many options. I think this will become a regular addition to our meal prep.
For our main dishes this week – Skinny Lasagna Rolls, Slow Cooker Quinoa, Chicken, and Kale Soup, and Honey Sriracha Chicken Noodle Bowls! The last two were new to us and will definitely be made again! I can honestly say this is one of the best meal preps we have had in a while! It was so nice to mix things up and make some new foods, especially ones with veggies (Our veggies have been a bit lacking/basic lately)!
I didn’t even make much for changes this week! One main change to tell you about – For the Kale Soup, I used pre-cooked quinoa that I had in the freezer. I took it out to thaw the day before and added it in when I took the chicken out to shred. I wasn’t sure how well it would work, but it worked beautifully! I’m sure it would be great the way the recipe has it, but we had some already prepped that I wanted to use up first.

So that’s it for this week’s meal prep! Have you tried any new recipes lately that you’ve loved? I would love to hear about them!
