I killed it!!!

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:

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

NOTE:  You can use the HOMEMADE MAYO recipe found HERE -as well.  I was just lazy.
