Meal Prep Monday

  
These 12 meals took me about 30 minutes to assemble this morning. We had some family time last night and I didn’t want to sacrifice that for meal prep! I did spend about 5 minutes looking for my other 3 containers to only find out that my kiddo had grown them out by mistake because he thought they were disposable. Oh well!  At least he had healthy meals at school! 

Ok, now to get to the point of this post: How I did this in 30 minutes. 

I cooked chicken in the crockpot over night and I let it cool for about an hour before I wanted to start packaging my food. I totally failed to get a picture of this because it was around this time that I realized I was short 3 containers and I went looking for them. I filled the two containers on the right without first two days of chicken and bulk packed the other chicken into a gallon zip lock bag. 

I spread out 5 containers for the breakfasts and just quickly went down the line with my blue 21 day fix container filling it with dried oatmeal, then 1 TBSP of frozen blueberries and chopped walnuts. Super quick. 
  
Then I spread out 5 more containers for my spinach salad:

  
I added paper towels to the bottom of the salads to help with moisture. I will remove them before assembling the salads of course. I then put two 21 Day Fix green containers of spinach in each container. 

Then I got out 5 snack size zip lock bags and added 1 TBSP of each:  chopped walnuts, dried cranberries and feta cheese.  

 
I put another paper towel on top of the spinach and added the baggies and closed up the containers. My little orange 21 day fix containers are missing now so I used the equivalent portion in the blue container for today. 

{our sock knome must be trying to eat healthier because a lot of my Tupperware is mismatched now. At least that is my theory!}

This was super easy and quick to do. It makes the rest of the mornings so much more manageable!  

I even took 10 minutes and prepped food for the kiddo!  He has hot lunch 3 times this week, he’ll have some of my chicken the other two days so this is just his snack food to go along with his main meals:

  
I keep all of his stuff in a bin in the fridge so it’s easy for him to know what to get. Pretzels, string cheese and cut up oranges. Not the healthiest but MUCH better than it could be!  

Here’s to a great week everyone!
