Weekend Meal Prep

The weekends for me are always a little crazy. From dishes and laundry to meeting up with family, there never seems to be enough time. This is why I like to spend my evenings after work at home relaxing (not getting ready for the next day). So I have established what I believe to be a pretty good system.

Saturday is for any errands and cleaning that don’t include groceries or laundry.

On Sunday, I spend the morning getting all of the laundry done and piled nice and high on the bed (the dog loves to snuggle in it). Then put together a grocery list for 2 weeks and head out to the store. I will share more on our monthly meal planning and grocery list next week!!!

I have 5 containers (I used recycled Prego jars here, but you can use anything).

In each container, I combine the following (based on what I want in each salad every day so that it doesn’t get boring).

Note: Put dry and heavy ingredients on the bottom so they don’t smash the lettuce.

Options:

  • Spinach
  • Crunchy Lettuce
  • Other Greens
  • Broccoli Bits
  • Peppers
  • Carrots
  • Olives
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Nuts (I am allergic so I don’t even go there)
  • Fruit (Apples, Pears, Blueberries, Strawberries)
  • Bean Sprouts

Then I store my chicken, steak, bacon, meat of choice pre-cooked and cut up in a ziplock bag for right before I am going to eat my salad.

We have a big fridge at work so I can take all 5 jars in on Monday, and not have to worry about bringing lunch all week. So easy!

I don’t put on my protein, avocado, dressing or cheese on until I am eating the salad because it gets slimy.

What are your weekend meal prep tips? What other toppings would you add? Let me know!!
