Hey preppers! So last week was more of a trial and error with the oatmeals. The Beard’s needed a little tweaking throughout the week and we found his perfect combination: oats, chia seeds, cinnamon, raisins, and applesauce. I decided I didn’t like overnight oats and switched to smoothies instead! The smoothies can be blended ahead of time and frozen in mason jars (a meal preppers best friend).
I’m still having some oats! I just prefer it blended with lots of fruit! I just take them out of the freezer when I get up in the morning and warm them up under a little running water and they are good to eat with a spoon by 9.
I loved these noodle cups so much, I made more! I switched up the layers and put the noodles on top (they seem to like it up there better) , with the veggies on bottom. The combinations with these are endless!
Noodles // zucchini // Portobello mushrooms // peas and carrots // red peppers // soy sauce // parsley
I wish I had a fried egg to put on top! But I’m not sure that would reheat real well …
Lunch/dinner: option two
Chicken // Portobello mushrooms // zucchini // carrots // broccoli // red peppers // parsley
Notice something? I used most of the same veggies in both my dishes, but they are totally different. I hate wasting, but I hate eating the same thing everyday too.
The Beard made a little tweak to his meals this week! He swapped out his chicken for tilapia. Hopefully it’s not too stinky at lunch time! We did make his meal number five with chicken, because we were not sure if the fish would stay fresh enough all week. I have to say, I like cooking the fish more. It cooks much faster and I don’t have to thaw it first.
I plan on mixing some of my soup into the rotation this week too, it’s taking up half my freezer! Not pictured: spicy black bean dip and hard-boiled eggs. Plus, I have leftover veggies to snack on this week too. I’d call that a victory!
