This Week’s Meals: Catering to a Gluten-Free Husband and 2-Year-Old Toddler

I’m baaaaack! ­čÖé Meal prep used to be my life’s calling but recently I haven’t done it as much. Well I’m back at it and sharing what I made this past week!

Meal prepping is the ultimate lifesaver for my busy family and I juggling hectic schedules. By dedicating a little time upfront to plan and prepare meals for the week, families, mine included, can streamline their weekdays and alleviate the stress of last-minute cooking decisions.

With meals ready to go in the fridge or freezer, everyone can enjoy delicious and nutritious homemade dishes without the hassle! Plus, meal prepping allows my family and I to make healthier choices, save money on dining out, and enjoy more quality time together during the week. It’s a game-changer for us and I think it will help yours too especially if you’re looking to simplify your life and prioritize wholesome eating habits!

I will try and write out my meal plans for each week moving forward. But keep me accountable ­čÖé

1. Chicken Noodle Soup (Gluten Free)

I love having at least one soup prepped for the week! This is such a classic and just always makes me feel good. Great for lunch or dinner and also loved by toddlers!

2. Beef Fried Rice

Kimchi and Beef Fried Rice

The original recipe calls for kimchi but I’m all out so used what vegetables I had! This is why fried rice is such a great meal prep recipe because it can help you use whatever ingredients you have on hand. Keeps really well in the fridge for a few days!

3. Roasted Butternut Squash

The original recipe calls for air fryer but I already had my oven going for other recipes so I just used the oven! Oven directions are listed at the bottom in the Q&A section!

4. Baked eggs for breakfast sandwiches and wraps

You can see in my reel that I only prepped the eggs. I just kept it simple with baked eggs (in oven for 30 minutes at 350 degrees) so I could easily add to wraps or sandwiches in the morning. For extra protein, I blended the eggs with about a half cup of cottage cheese! This is a good recipe to follow to make your own!

5. Pesto Crust Salmon

I haven’t prepped this one yet but it’s so simple and quick that I will make it night of for dinner! I love how easy this recipe is to make on a busy weeknight and serve with the prepped butternut squash.

Other things I have ready for the week are:

  • Fresh cut mangoes
  • Bananas
  • Cottage cheese
  • Yogurt
  • Hummus
  • Mini pita bread
