PREPPING FOR THE WARM WEEK AHEAD
Every week after shopping at the farmers market I try to prepare a few meals that can be served for lunch or dinner. this way if the week becomes hectic I do not resort to less healthy alternatives!
This week was so hot that I could not bring myself to prepare anything hot!
Here is what I have on hand for the week.
- I always make a large mixed green salad with as many different vegetables as possible.
We use this for sides, a full meal with add ons, and in daily lunch wraps that include hummus, brown rice, and Sriracha!
- Next I made a very special fruit salad. I was lucky enough to be given a most beautiful mango from my friend who has a house in Florida near a mango grower! It was perfect!! I also included a watermelon from the farmers market, blackberries from the farmers market, and fresh pineapple.
This will make for several desserts, or lunch with plain yogurt, and a shake of cinnamon.
- Lastly I made bean salad. I put different beans in every time I make it and it is always delicious.
It pairs well with the salad as a more hearty meal, as a side or alone. (we even put it in the sometimes!)
So how do you prepare for the week with healthy meals?
Send me some of your ideas!
