Welcome to a new series! While I regularly share recipes using my "What I Cooked Last Week" post format, I sometimes dread writing them because it is difficult to remember everything I cooked/substitutions I made in the recipes/initial thoughts, etc.
This meal prep and plan series will allow me to share what I'm cooking as it happens- easier for me and hopefully fun for you!
Are you a meal planner? How about a meal prepper?
I do both, but not to the extent that I see many youtubers and bloggers doing. My fridge isn't full of pre-chopped veggies, cooked quinoa, and roasted sweet potatoes. Instead, I choose 3-4 dinners per week, grocery shop for those, and then on Sundays, I make some " extra stuff" for breakfast, lunches and snacks throughout the week.
I don't really prep any of the foods I need for dinners because I just find it unnecessary. Doing it this way means I don't really have to cook anything UNTIL dinner, don't have to guess what to eat during the day, and don't waste food from the previous week- winning!
Here are the four meals I have planned for dinners this week:
And here's the food prep I did today:
