MOST RECENT

Sunday’s are for meal prep. That’s what the last few weeks have been for me. I do groceries, and then I prep. I’ve done it enough that it’s become routine, and I’m actually enjoying meal prepping. It makes me feel good about the week ahead knowing that my lunches are taken care of and I don’t have to worry about what I’m going to eat every day. This week I wrote about my meal prep, and you can click the link in my bio to get a look at the recipe for these chicken, veg and rice bowls. They’ve become my go-to when I can’t think up anything else. They’re so good, especially with a touch of tzatziki sauce! Let me know if you give the recipe a try. 🥙

Roasted cauliflower. Noooot Gracie approved. I guess you can’t win them all. This is a head of cauliflower chopped into florets, tossed with olive oil, salt, and pepper. I added a little Grated cheese at the end. Roast at 425F until golden 😍 these took about a half hour. #cauliflower #eatyourveggies #ewwwwmom #ilovevegetables #nomnom #makeahead #makeaheadlunch #dinner #sidedish #sidedishes #easysides #dinnertime #weeknightdinner #love #ilovefood #yummy #yum #iheartprettyfood

If Monday’s have you inspired to eat healthier for the week, this Greek yogurt chicken salad is calling your name! I like to add grapes, celery, and cashews for a little extra flavor. Mix it once and have lunches all week!

Lunch today: salad with romaine, barley, red Swiss chard, pickled yellow beets. Topped with grilled jerk chicken and lemon zest 🍋🍋🍋

Planned leftovers is my #1 meal prep tip. Cook once and then have lunches for a couple of days. I only ever do this for 2 days because by then I’ve eaten it 3 times and am over it. #mealprep #mealplanning #mealpreptips #foodie #getinmybelly #lunchtime #makeaheadlunch

Tomorrow's work #lunch all ready to go. Made a salad with a layer of chopped iceberg lettuce on the bottom of the container and topped it with chopped tomatoes, cukes and red pepper (jazzed up with some crumbled feta), a tablespoon of barley, canned tuna, hard boiled egg and a few olives. Quickly made a simple balsamic, evoo and salt dressing and also bringing my berry salad. One less thing to think about in the morning.

Eat your greens! My new favorite way to make green beans. These are the larger green beans that they sell loose in the store. You do have to snip or break off the ends. (That’s a good job for the kiddies) I blanched these in boiling water with a little salt for 3 minutes, then drained and ran them under cold water to stop them from cooking. I lined a sheet pan with non stick foil, split the beans in half lengthwise by hand, then tossed them with olive oil, a clove of minced garlic, bread crumbs, and grated cheese. Baked at 400F for 10 minutes. The bread crumbs toast up nicely, and the beans were perfection. No tossing necessary. Quick tip: you can easily make these ahead and reheat, or after the cold water bath, pat them dry and refrigerate. Then complete the roasting later. #eatyougreens #eatyourveggies #greenbeans #stringbeans #simpleitalianfood #ilovefood #quickdinnerideas #quickdinner #cheapdinner #sidedish #sidedishideas #makeaheadfood #makeaheaddinner #makeaheadlunch #leftoversforlunch #instafood #instagood #yum #yummy #nomnom #iheartprettyfood

Pretty roast beef for dinner tonight. Roast beef sandwiches for lunch tomorrow. 2 in 1 meal 😍 This is a 3 lb eye round that was a pretty even cut. Baked it in a foil pan for an hour and a half with nothing on it. Keep it simple. This is the only meat i will eat on the rare side or it gets too dried out. I bake it for a half hour per lb, because that’s my moms fool proof trick. I add sea salt and pepper after its cooked, place a piece of aluminum foil over it, and let it rest for about 20 minutes. Works like a charm 😍 paired this with rosemary roasted potatoes and corn. #roastbeef #aujus #frenchdip #frenchdipsandwiches #makeaheadlunch #easydinner #eaaydinnerideas #meat #redmeat #beef #wheresthebeef #weeatmeat #andcarbs #🤷🏻‍♀️ #ilovefood #iheartprettyfood #instagood #instafood #yum #yummy #nomnom

Orecchiette with cherry tomatoes and purple Japanese eggplant better known as 🍆 and also known as uhhh ummm, anyway.... 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 this is one pint of halved cherry tomatoes and 3 eggplants sliced in halves lengthwise , then half moons. Add a swirl of olive oil to a pan, then add the tomatoes and a little salt. Let them cook for a few minutes until they wilt a little, then add 2 cloves of minced garlic and chopped parsley. Once combined, add the chopped eggplant and a little more oil and salt. Cook on medium until the eggplant is cooked through. Tip: Eggplant can be tough to work with because of its spongey consistency, so you may need to add more oil because it soaks it up easily. I cooked and drained Barilla orecchiette, then combined it with the cooked veggies. You can use this veggie topping alone, as a side, or as a topping for chicken, steak, etc. #eatyourveggies #carbsarelife #eattherainbow #quickdinnerideas #quickdinner #meatlessmonday #cherrytomatoes #eggplant #orecchiette #parsley #pasta #pastaislife #barilla #weeknightdinner #makeaheadlunch #addcheese #leftoversforlunch #yum #yummy #instagood #instafood #ilovefood #ilovecooking #italianfood #italianamericanfood #keepitsimple #iheartprettyfood

Myth: meal prep takes too long 🕐

Truth: The total hands-on time to prep 5 lunches = 15 minutes 😳
Here’s the breakdown:
🍚Brown rice hands-on time: 2 minutes 🥦Steamed broccoli hands-on time: 2 minutes
🍤Shrimp hands-on time 5 minutes (15 if you have to peel them) 🍋Lemon quarters - 1 minute

Clean up: 5 minutes.
Time is priceless - believe me, I get it! So if you want to know how I do it, message me! I’m happy to share!

Soup's up!
This week's lunch. I made a thing. So now there's a mysterious jar of concentrated broth in the office refrigerator. I do not know what this is called. The soup has no name, but it has actual plants and animal bits so I guess it's healthy?

If I tried to force myself to eat chicken, cauliflower, and broccoli for lunch for one day, I was going to throw up. So instead, I made a big pot of vegetable barley soup! It is chock full of veggies like sweet potato, carrots, spinach, zucchini, red bell pepper, corn, peas, green beans, and a little onion for flavor. Plus, it made 7 servings! It is not my recipe, I found it on Pinterest (although it’s so good I wish I could claim it as my own). Link to the recipe is below. .
