weekly meal prep
This weekend was just what I needed for a little reboot. Much needed rest, including two naps on Saturday, which is unheard of for me and lots of relaxing with friends. Don't you just love those kind of weekends?
I was also suppose to get this post up last week, but it escaped me somehow. So this is a recap from a week ago, but later late than never right?
Last Sunday night I finally did some food prep. Thank goodness.
I could probably name on one hand how many different meal variations I've had over the last few months.
Hummus and veggie wraps.
Avocado and veggie wraps.
Two fried eggs with Ezekial toast.
Veggie burger and sweet potato.
More eggs and hummus.
Totally delicious when not eaten 214 times in a row. But when you're on your 6th consecutive day of eating eggs and kale and mushroom is gets, well, boring. I think my taste buds have fallen asleep.
Now, not to throw hummus under the bus or anything, I love it dearly, but a girl can only eat so many chickpeas.
So I vowed to make something different to eat last week. If you don't like it change it right?
Everything took all of 90 minutes on Sunday evening and now perhaps I wouldn't walk around smelling like tahini all week.
From the top going clockwise we've got two buckwheat breakfast bakes [cocoa & blueberry] for Monday and Thursday morning when I'm short on time. I ate oatmeal the other days. White bean dip which is strikingly similar to hummus. Even though hummus and I are on a break, we are definitely not calling it quits. On the bottom is a batch of lunchtime tempeh salad to eat instead of hummus wraps and the bowl that looks like liquid rust is tomato basil dressing from Thrive Foods which made salads extra special-- sweet summer tomatoes are dEEvine right about now.
And lastly, a big ole pan of enchiladas! Eaten with lots of mashed avocado and hot sauce, these was a very welcomed change up for dinners last week.
All I did was triple my recipe for mexican lasagna and since I didn't have enchilada sauce on hand I blended up a can of diced tomatoes with some chili powder and cumin until it tasted spicy.
And that is how I managed on getting to get out of the I-eat-the-same-thing-for-every-meal trenches.
