So after beating myself up last week for the Epic Kroger fail— I decided that meal planning was a must on the weekends. It’s just too busy during the week to be a superhero. I made the Panera copy cat egg / avocado/tomato breakfast sandwiches (sans bread) and had some healthy dinners. We managed to eat well despite softball games and band practice. This last weekend was perfect for meal prep as well because I was able to prep quite a few meals and watch an entire season of “Beat Bobby Flay” at the same time (dang-that guy aways wins).
So here is how this weekend’s prep started:
These suddenly became a Pinterest Win! (Most of my Pinterest creations are a little sad)
Yep —you got it !!!! Salad jars! Some dressing at the bottom to keep them fresh and they became lunch for the week. They surprisingly stay really fresh!
A Mediterranean Chicken Casserole :
We ate it for dinner (even the kids liked it) and then I took leftovers for lunch- it was uber easy my friends!
1 Whole Organic Pastured chicken (can bake or boil)–or a cheat is to buy the healthiest rotisserie chicken you can find
1 can of black olives rinsed well and sliced
1 can of artichokes rinsed well and sliced
1 carton of organic grape tomatoes
1 handful fresh chopped organic spinach
2 chopped organic zucchini
1 TBS of primal kitchen avocado mayo
(add a dash of lemon juice to keep avocado from browning)
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 350—
Combine all the ingredients and place in a baking dish — then cook covered 25-30min until hot —
VOILA— easy peasy dinner is served —
NOTE: You can use the HOMEMADE MAYO recipe found HERE -as well. I was just lazy.
You can order the primal avocado mayo here or find it in the Angela MD store off the home page of the blog along with other supplements and books I recommend.
