This week Hubs wanted to try his hand at meal planning / meal prep. We are taking our health a bit more seriously lately and have both been doing two meal replacement shakes a day with one actual meal. Relax people I can feel the emails already. We have talked with medical professionals that see nothing wrong with doing this. That said an average day includes two shakes, some fruit and veggies for snacking on, and one healthy meal. The meal is eaten whenever we want. Some days it's lunch, but more often its a early dinner.
Poor hubby did have some limitations. I needed to use the 10 chicken breasts in the freezer meaning we would be eating them for every meal that week. This doesn't bother us. It is an added bonus that Hubs is doing this too because then I can add more variety to what is made. The other stipulation was that he needed to try to use up a decent amount of whats in the pantry.
On to what he made...
an overview of the meals
Bear has food from each of the meals pulled aside for him. He can pick and choose what he wants to eat each day from that or I make him his own meal if needed. We do try to eat as a family at the kitchen table even if we are all eating different meals. The older he gets the less likely we are to be doing meals this way, but for now it works for us.
Do you meal prep or meal plan? What are your go to meals?
