Hi friends! Hope you are having a good week so far. I got a lot of positive feedback on my last What I Ate Wednesday post where I highlighted easy, healthy meals so this week I wanted to focus on something similar based on a question I was asked.
Question: “Because you food prep, do you eat the same thing all week?”
Answer: No, not exactly.
Sure I may have things on repeat but I always strive for as much variety as possible. Because really who has time to make something completely new each day?! Not me, and I don’t want to.
Last week, I prepped a batch of chickpea burgers. To make the burgers, I simply used my baked falafel recipe (omitting the parsley) and formed four burgers rather than falafel balls. Easy. I also prepped (aka chopped) some veggies: brussels sprouts, broccoli, green beans and sweet potato. I had spinach, apples, grapes and cranberry orange sauce
Meal #3: Chickpea burger with roasted brussels sprouts and sweet potato fries.
Meal #4: Chickpea burger with spinach, brussels sprouts, green beans and apple salad.
Obviously these meals aren’t crazy different but they offer just enough variety (for me) to feel like I’m not eating the same thing and don’t need to make something completely from scratch. But if you have any suggestions to offer more variety to my preppin’ ways, I’d love to hear your thoughts :) have a wonderful day!
Questions of the day…
Do you have things “on repeat” throughout the week?
