sunday meal prep 6/26/16

Hey all! Happy Sunday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Ours was pretty good here, though busy. A few things are still being caught up on from me being sick last week, but I think I’m getting close to caught up! ┬áSpeaking of me being sick last week….This meal prep is quite possibly the shortest I have ever done. (keep in mind these are staggered by one week, so this post is for last Sunday’s prep) I was still feeling not-too-great, so I planned for quick prep meals and the bare minimum of active cooking. I also forgot to photograph the salads and the picture of the main prep isn’t my prettiest picture by far ­čÖü All that being said, I am really glad I still did my prep! I started feeling better on Monday and was back up and active by Tuesday and I’m so glad that I didn’t have to worry about the cooking then! All the food I did make was really tasty too, so at least there is that!

So with all that being said, enjoy this week’s prep! I even have a couple recipes that I don’t think I’ve shared on the blog before, so make sure to check them out below!
