Weekly Meal Prep

It’s time again to start meal prepping! Meal prepping makes life so much easier. I don’t always love doing it but I love the results of it. I try to set aside 30 minutes to an hour or more depending on my schedule, each week to get some things chopped or cooked to prepare for the week.

 

Meal Prep Week 6-5-16 | Mrs Tea & Mr Coffee

You can see my weekly meal plan here, which coincides with what I’ve prepped for the week.

Here is what I prepped this week:

  • Coconut Flour Banana Bread – this is one of my favorite banana breads. It’s super moist and there isn’t any added sugar.
  • Cut up fruit and vegetables – I like to cut up fruits and vegetables to have on hand for the week. This week I did grapes, strawberries, and blueberries and some bell peppers and broccoli. I’ll use some of the vegetables for side dishes this week or eat them raw with hummus. I’m trying to take a little detox this week, so having healthy things on hand to eat helps me stay on track.
  • Thai Peanut Noodles – I’ve had this on rotation in my weekly meal plan posts frequently. I made a batch of this to have for meals for the week. To make it even easier, I make it vegetarian, by not adding chicken. It’s still as delicious and filling without it.
  • Blueberry Muffin Larabar Balls – I love Larabars. They are made with only whole foods and are a nice snack. They can get pricey, so it’s nice to make these Larabar balls at home. This recipe is so delicious and naturally sweetened with dates. It’s packed with flavor and literally tastes like a blueberry muffin.

That’s all for this week! Thanks for stopping by!

Weekly Meal Plan

Hey guys! It’s been soooooo long. I’m starting to feel inspired again and getting back into a little more structure in my life. Which means, making myself put together weekly meal plans. Here is what is on the menu for this week! Also, I got a new menu board which will make it a little bit easier to get my new plans down.

Menu Week 6-5-16 | Mrs Tea & Mr Coffee

Sunday – Baked Lemon Chicken, Roasted Asparagus, Salad and Quinoa Brown Rice – This is kind of a long one, but sometimes on Sundays, it’s nice to make a little bit “fancier” of a dinner. But it’s really not that fancy at all :). This baked chicken recipe is honestly one of the best tasting baked chicken recipes I’ve ever made. It’s so juicy and has so much flavor, and is super easy. I would compare it to rotisserie chicken, but since you’re making it at home, you know all of the ingredients that go into it! I made a big batch of this to have for leftovers to put in my pasta later this week. My new favorite salad dressing is this recipe that has apple cider vinegar, olive oil, garlic, s&p and a little honey. So good!

Monday – Taco Salad – This is a really easy week night meal. I like to brown up some ground turkey and use homemade taco seasoning to season it. I make a double batch of the seasoning and keep it on hand. I just do a tablespoon of chili powder, oregano, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, cumin and a teaspoon of kosher salt. It is so much better than the store bought kind! I serve this over a big bowl of lettuce, add in some bell peppers, green onions, and corn. I dress it with salsa and just a little bit of ranch. Yum!

TuesdayCashew Sauce over Pasta & Roast Broccoli – I’m so excited to try this recipe. I love the idea of using cashews as a creamy sauce for pasta. I’m going to add in some of the roast chicken that I made earlier in the week, some easy caramelized red onions, and I’m going to use spinach instead of kale, since that’s what I have on hand.

Wednesday – Chicken Fingers, Green Beans & Sweet Potatoes – This is one of my favorite meals to make when Matt travels! I call it my kid meal. I try to make it healthy by having some vegetables and will make the sweet potato fries from scratch. It’s easy to make them at home and they are delicious.

ThursdayCashew Chicken – Asian inspired food is probably one of my favorite types of food. I love all stir fries and fried rice and the sauce. Yum. And this chicken dish looks so easy and delicious. I love that it’s packed with veggies.

Friday – Out

Saturday – Grilled Chicken Teriyaki – I have an easy and delicious marinade recipe that my mom always used growing up. It’s soy sauce based and is super yummy. I love to add pineapple slices and a slice of provolone or havarti cheese.
