I work the Thursday though Friday work shift and the longer I do,the better I like it. Because at this point, I've chosen not to have many responsibilities, this schedule allows me time during the week to get things done.When I need the weekend off for a special reason, it's nice to be able to use my time off. It works for now, I am truly happy and blessed at my job!
Today, I got my food prep for the week done. I am a firm believer that if you fail to prep, you prep to fail.so I got my lunches for the week ready. Here's a picture of the first batch:
I'm currently obsessed with mason jars! I love how easy to clean up and don't pick any of the food smells. The cuteness is just a bonus lol!
This week I made salad dressing using balsamic vinegar, splash of lime juice and evoo. I poured 1.5 tablespoons at the bottom of my jars, added a handful of grape tomatoes and filled them up with my favorite power green blend (Swiss chard,kale,spinach and a bit of shredded carrots). They say they should be fine for a whole week in the fridge but I am skeptical so I always fix three at a time.
I also have an ounce of feta cheese in each of the lil container that I will mix into the salad as well as a hard boiled egg that I will chop over it as well.
The bottom jars have baby portabellas sliced, green beans, chopped onions and parsley. There's a cup of that in each jar which gives me something 'warm' to eat after my salad. Delicious!
I really need to revamp my breakfast routine. I am trying to make sure I add fats and proteins but feel I need some variety. How do you prep for the week?
Hope all is going well with you, remember taking some extra time now will make a big difference later on. I leave you with a little inspiration:
