Good morning, everyone!
Today, I’ve gotten my butt up and out of bed to begin meal prepping. 🙂 I didn’t want to stress about making the time to cook all day long, so I’m doing my best to get it out-of-the-way now.
I do want to get other things done instead, but meal prepping is the most important thing you can do on the weekends, to help you eat healthy throughout the week. I can’t stress that point enough. If I didn’t pre make my food, I’d be eating nothing but cheese quesadilia’s all week and going out to eat for lunch. Here’s just a few things I’ve made so far. 🙂
This week was my second week of meal prepping with Blue Apron and I believe it’s been another successful cooking day!
Three recipes complete and lots of yummy food prepped for this week.
- Pork Tteokbokki with Asparagus and Spicy Black Bean Sauce
- Grains of Paradise – Crusted Steak with Mashed Plantain, Collard Greens and Ginger Peanuts
- Spring Chicken Fettuccine with sautéed Asparagus, Kale and Rosemary
I can’t wait to try these throughout the week!
I was not in the mood for meal prep today, but a few weeks ago I ran into an ad for Blue Apron. After reading about it and looking into prices I decided to give it a try.
This service gives you a few recipes to choose from for a week and will deliver the correct amount of ingredients to your doorstep on a day of your choice. I chose a saturday delivery and the ingredients arrived at my doorstep in a refridgerated box. I wasn’t home at the time of the delivery, but the items in the box were indeed cold by the time I opened it.
Even though everything was sent to me, I still wasn’t in the mood to cook but I did it anyway. I am completely blown away at how easy the recipes were to follow and it was SO awesome to have all the ingredients already measured out for you. I’ve learned that’s the part of cooking that I dread, gathering the ingrediants, measuring it and preping it.
I’ve made two of the three recipies. Seared Chicken with sauteed purple patatoes, kale and apple and Crispy Cod and Yuzu-Shoyu Soba with Cabbage and Togarashi. I’ve never cooked cod before and I think it’s turned out well.
I’ll be eating the recipies throughout the week. I sure hope they all turned out great! From what I’ve tasted so far they have, but this week will be the real test.
Now, I just have to find time to cook the steak.
