Monster Meal Prep – April 22

This is going to be a busy week for me, so I finally prepped MOST of my meals… It’s hard for me to prep all of them because I don’t have good tupperware so my food isn’t as fresh after a few days. I really need to make the investment and just go ahead and buy the the good tupperware!

SORRY FOR THE UGLY PICTURE!!! Terrible lighting in my kitchen…

Cantaloupe with Greek yogurt, blackberries, and crushed almonds

Cooking Instructions:
1. Cut cantaloupe in half
2. Scoop out the seeds
3. Fill with yogurt
4. Add crushed almonds
5. Add blackberries (or any berries)

This was pretty hard to eat actually. The juice kept squirting everywhere! I guess that’s what I get for taking the lazy way and digging the fruit out with a spoon. Maybe next time I’ll just cut the cantaloupe up and add the other stuff on top…

Mother’s Meal Prep – April 15

 

20130423-180324.jpg

This week’s meal prep brought to you by my mother! I visited home last weekend and she packed some food for me. My parents are actually vegetarians now but my mom cooks me meat because she knows I’m not a veg.

Top left corner: Ginger chicken

Top right corner: Brown rice with quinoa

Bottom left corner: Egg noodles with chicken and stir fried veggies (broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, spinach)

Bottom right corner: Stir fried tofu with tomatoes and green onions (my favorite!!!)

Er… no recipes for them (yet). She makes these pretty often so check back for a future post with recipe details!
