Weekly meal prep!

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!)

Boiled quinoa

Quinoa mix with fried tofu, red onion, edmame beans and pumpkin pieces

Roasted vegetables

Parsnip fries & sweet potato fries

Tofu mix (i.e vegan version of skagen röra)

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)

  1. I’m hungry now!! I need to food prep more… You do so much! It’s really inspiring! How do you find time to make all of that in one go? Do you do them all at the same time, or one after the other? 🙂

    1. Thank you so much!! I make it all at the same time… took about 90 minutes in total haha. I have a plan before i start cooking so i know what to do and take out all the ingredients and sort of bundle them into/group them so i know which foods are going to be made into which meal/food! hahah 🙂

  2. How did you get on with the pumpkin? Did you like it?
    I have never tried it – more of a case that I haven’t a clue how to prepare one or cook it – but I`ve heard its very nice 🙂

    1. If you fry the pumpkin(or bake) with some oil and salt it is delicious. I have always said i don’t like pumpkin, but that is because i have only eaaten butternut squash (pumpkin), which i don’t like…. but actual pumpkin tastes soo good! Not as good as potatoes or sweet potato, but i think i might make a lentil soup and add some of the frozen pumpkin!! You should try it if you get the chance!
