January 16, 2023 – Food prepped and ready to go!

It’s been a few days since my last post. Work and home have been busy. It’s been hard to eat healthy when so busy so we came up with a plan to get our weeks food ready to go on the weekend. Today was our food prep day. We are trying the mix and match type of lunch food prep. We cooked:

  • 2 large chicken breasts cubed and sautéed in a pan. Let cool and put in container in the fridge.
  • 2 cups broccoli florets and 2 cups cauliflower sprayed with olive oil spray and seasoned with salt and pepper. Roasted in the oven 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Let cool and put in container in the fridge.
  • 1 sweet potato cut up, sprayed with olive oils, seasoned with salt and pepper, and then put in the air fryer at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Let cool and put in a container in the fridge.
  • 2 cups butternut squash, seasoned with salt and pepper, and roasted in the over at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. Let cool and put in container in the fridge.
  • 2 cups of small potatoes cut up, sprayed with olive oil, seasoned with salt and pepper. Cooked in the airfryer at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Let cool and put in a container in the fridge.
  • 2 bags of boil in bag brown rice, cooked, cooled and put in a container in the fridge.
  • 2 bags of boil in bag quinoa, cooked, cooked, cooled and put in a container in the fridge.

Mike and I will be mixing and matching these foods for our lunches. He can come home and throw his in the microwave. I will pack mine in a container to bring to work.
