Hi, friends! Yesterday’s post on the Post Baby Bod program I did went up a little late, so if you missed it, check that out here!
Ever since the Little Man was born, I’ve relied on weekend meal prep to get me through the week. With a baby, it can be hard to find a second to eat much less cook a meal, any meal. I always share our meal prep on IG, but I know many of you have requested a more permanent place to reference our weekly meal prep and many others are not on Instagram.
Let me know if you want this to become a regular series!
I always try to follow along with my WTE? Meal Plan subscribers each week as much as I can. I can’t do all the meals because I have to develop new recipes for the blog and the plans. I’m also on a relatively strict diet for breastfeeding do to Little Man’s MSPI diagnosis (currently dairy, soy, gluten, egg, peanut, and nut free) – post coming soon on that. (BTW Most of my subscribers use them exactly as I do, as a modifiable template!) Here was this week’s plan:
The plans include meal prep tips and assignments to help subscribers stay on track. Plus, subscribers get access to a portal where they can access every single plan I’ve ever made! Okay, done with the shameless self-plug, moving on!
In my meal prep, I grouped oven prep, grill prep, and other prep and tackled each separately.
I did this while jumping on and off the treadmill. The workout kept saying “don’t stop this is an endurance workout” and I wanted to scream back “but I have things in the oven!” #momlife #yellingatnoone #getitdone
The chicken was already previously marinated all I did was defrost it and throw it in the cast iron pan!
Trader Joe’s Grilled Cauliflower
Purple & Orange Sweet Potatoes
Once the baked goods were done I tackled the “other stuff.”
Anti-Inflammatory Instant Oats (without pb2)
Sprouts Chocolate Vegan Protein + Flax Milk
Zucchini Noodles (Mr. Hungry did these while Little Man naped, he likes to cut his up so that there aren’t super long strands.)
That finished off Mr. Hungry’s lunches for the week!
These were for my lunch, but I forgot to snap a picture on the grill, so here is my finished lunch.
We also grilled a new foil packet recipe – but that was more our “Sunday meal” than it was part of our meal prep!
Total time? Probably about 1.5-2 hours but here is the thing, it was broken up. I was jumping on and off the treadmill and juggling the baby. I finished prepping at about 1 pm (started at 9 am), but I didn’t spend that whole time in the kitchen. I started and stopped. That works for us right now because we are just hanging out at home with the babe anyway on Sundays!
Meal prep, yah or neh? When do you prep? All at once or sporadically?
