Prep Day!

Back to Basics

Most of us are very busy ~ I think it is just the sign of the times.  Fast food and take-out have unfortunately become the “norm” of our daily eating habits as a culture.  But it doesn’t have to.  You can be in charge of your own eating destiny.

Prep Day

Pick a day of the week to prep.  I use Sunday to get everything in order for my upcoming week.

In this picture I have:
– shredded carrots
cooked a chicken and diced half of the meat (we eat the other half as the main protein in our meals)
ground almond flour
– diced onions
– seeded a pomegranate
made broth from my whole chicken bones
– hard-boiled eggs

This is just a start…depending on the season or your taste buds, prep what you use often in your dishes.

There are some mornings where I just want to still be in bed. I will just scramble an egg because I don’t want to go through the “trouble” of chopping veggies to add. However, if I already have my peppers, onions, mushrooms and chicken cubes pre-chopped, I can whip up a very well-rounded scramble in no time.

Hard-boiled eggs are great on-the-go snacks…or sliced and eaten with my lunch.

My girls adore pomegranate seeds as is…my husband and I enjoy them on our salads.

This prep work can also assist in a quick soup, salad, side or whatever you can imagine!

Chop a variety of cabbages for different slaws…make a different soup a week with your broth (freeze it in portioned sizes)…have celery already diced to throw on salads or into a can of tuna…use your imagination!  Have things prepared!

  1. Prep day is my favorite day!!! It makes the rest of the week so much easier. Plus its a day that I graze and try all the new meals and old favorites.

    I like to think of Sundays as "Dish Washing and Composting Day." It works great and is the only way we can manage through the week with busy jobs and three kids.
