Meal Prep’n

I’ve come to love meal prepping! I look forward to Sundays when I spend some therapeutic time preparing lunches for the week for both me and my husband.

Each week, we will both have a huge salad, plus a smaller side lunch. We vary it from week to week, from chicken burritos to a meatball with veggies or as I made this week (my favorite) BBQ shredded chicken with roasted veggies.

   

Yes this amount of prep does take some time, but oh the time it saves during the work week! It’s such a relief to know I have a healthy (WW point friendly) meal for lunch everyday.

I also “plan” out my dinners for each night of the week, however I rarely prepare them in advance. I have plenty of time to cook, since I get home before my husband.

This method of planning and prepping has been key to my weight loss journey so far. I’m able to plan out my meal (and SmartPoints) for the week and this has helped me stay on track. I’ll even plan days ahead if we’re planning to attend a Dodger Game or Concert or a family event.
