New week and it has definitely not started the way i had planned.
Infact this whole day has just passed by in a blur…. tired, anxious and stressed can sum up my day pretty well. However, i am not going to dwell on that.. tomorrow is a new day and i have decided to just spend the day at home working through a bunch of assignments so i can feel more at peace and not as anxious during the weekend when my family will be spending the weekend with me!
The best way to limit stress and prepare for the week is to meal prep!! And i stuck to my usual meal prep, i.e nothing new… but i thought i would share it anyway.
I am also going to make some swede fries as well as soak and boil the dried chickpeas so i can make some roast chickpeas and hummus for the week!! And then i have a bunch of frozen veggies, some fresh spinach and avocado for my meals! And then fruit, soy yoghurt, muesli and tofu for my snacks 🙂
Note, i don’t recommend keeping roasted veggies in the fridge for more than 2 or 3 days as they dry out rather quickly. So the roast veggies i make i eat first i.e for lunch and dinner within the first 48 hours and things such as quinoa and lentil soup lasts longer in the fridge or can be frozen 🙂
This weeks meal prep consisted of:
Lentil soup with potato and sweet potato and some oat cream (it doesn’t look so good as i didn’t have any crushed tomatoes so the colour doesn’t look great, but it tastes great!)
Quinoa mix with fried tofu, red onion, edmame beans and pumpkin pieces
Parsnip fries & sweet potato fries
Potato salad (got serious cravings for this so made my own and it is sooo good. Going to have to make it more often!)
Fried tofu (usually fry tofu the same day i eat it as it isn’t the best to store in the fridge – not for more than 24 hours anyway)
