I’m doing something a little different this week. Next weekend I will be in my first in-person NTP class session. The session is 9-6 on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday so I won’t have any time or energy next week to meal plan, shop, and cook. I decided to do a big cook-up this weekend of really easy recipes that I can pull from to create meals for the next two weeks.
I tallied up how many breakfast, lunch, and dinners I need to have available (Greg does some traveling and doesn’t take lunch during the week so it’s not always six meals a day for the two of us) and picked a handful of my favorite recipes. My criteria was pretty simple: I could easily prep the recipe this weekend or I can make it ‘real time’ in less than 20 minutes. To include nutrient dense foods I stocked up on kombucha and sauerkraut for probiotics and made three types of veggie soup, all bone broth based.
I plan to make a shopping trip mid week for fresh veggies, but otherwise most of the items are already prepped and in the fridge or freezer. Hoping to make what will be a long two weeks a little healthier by not ordering take out every night.
