Sometimes my meal preps come together fast and other times, I accidentally purchase silken tofu instead of extra firm and my meal prep is spread out over the weekend.
This weekend was definitely the later. As a result, I didn’t get a complete spread of all my prepped meals but the recipes are so good, I had to share anyway!
I did the bulk of my shopping at Pemberton Farms. I needed olive oil ( which they sell in bulk and they let you bring your own container, just try and use one with the amount on it) and a few other dry goods and to save time, I picked up as many of my other groceries as I could. Pemberton’s isn’t the cheapest spot for a full grocery run but I found some cool new things like veggy stock bouillon in a glass container and miso paste in glass. They also have dark chocolate pretzels, smoked almonds and plantain chips in bulk. Worth it!
For meals, I made:
Eggs and leftover veggies for breakfast. I’ll top this with a little Avocado ranch and everything but the bagel seasoning and have a piece of fruit on the side.
Creamy Chickpea Miso Vegetable Stew for lunch. I left out the cauliflower because I don’t really like chunks of it but I may try it with riced cauliflower next time. If you haven’t tried miso yet, I highly recommend it! According to the BBC, it’s a good source of protein, B vitamins, vitamin E, K and folic acids and helps promote gut heal. Plus, it tastes good.
And for dinner I made these grain bowls with turmeric sweet potatoes, baked tofu, lightly dressed arugala and Trader Joe’s sprouted California rice. If you follow the link, you’ll see this was originally a breakfast bowl with an egg but I switched it up and added tofu since I was having eggs for breakfast. This recipe was so good! That Trader Joe’s rice is my absolute favorite and I don’t even like rice. Unfortunately, its not plastic-free. This last bit was all that was left from a pre-low waste shopping trip. I would say you could use any grain here you enjoy. I think next time, I’ll try farro. This whole meal was packed with flavor and is one of my favorite dinners I’ve made this year.
I also made some chocolate cookies to have at lunch and have apples and oranges for snacks.
What are you making this week? Be sure to let me know if you try any of these!
