When it comes to meal planning, has anyone mastered quick & easy ways to prepare meals at least 5 days in advance for the week.
I found myself exhausted yesterday coming from work, and it was quite tempting for me to reach for junk food.
I'll even take quick snack suggestions, because yesterday, I found myself out of calorie-dense foods, and my bananas weren't ripe enough to suffice me. I had a lot of nuts prior.
My tip for you is to always have bananas or dates available, wanting junk food is only the mind playing tricks with you!
I try to always have fresh fruit + dates around just in case, stack up!! Fruit is simple, no prep time needed!
Datorade is my go-to meal when nothing else is available. Couldn' be easier or quicker!
buy a couple of days more than you need when they are ripe peel and freeze them. I have about 3 days of frozen bananas and just keep using them and top them up that way i dont go hungry and no food is wasted.
I have not mastered preparing meals for 5 days in advance, but rather 2 days ahead of time.
I make a few salads and place them in glass bowls with lids to store in the veg tray of refrigerator. When I get home from work, I'll set it out on the table to get to room temperature while preparing dinner for my family.
Also, I always keep bowls and bowls of fruit out on my dining room table - peaches, plums, plumcots, mangos, bananas, apples and oranges. This way, I can just grab and eat while performing household tasks. If I'm really tired, I'll sit down and rest with a bag of grapes, dried prunes, cherries, or dates. This way I'm not starving before eating my salad.
I hope this helps you in some way.
