Meal prepping is one of those things that I think people believe is only for those 5am workout people or the people who spend their free time doing extreme couponing. Let me just say, both of these people are to be admired; #goals. Truth is, meal prepping shouldn’t be only for those who are extremely motivated or high achievers. Meal prep was truly designed for the rest of us; the slackers of the world, the people who need time and sanity back. It’s made for busy business runners, parents, or anyone with more than one thing going on in their life. Those weeks when I meal prep are the easiest weeks of my life. To top it off, I make my meals from scratch using the best ingredients I can find. You won’t find many frozen meals, cans or plastic wrappers when it comes to cooking in my kitchen. (Except that organic beans come in cans and frozen organic veggies come in wrappers…ya got me there.) All it takes is a few hours and a little strategy to save yourself time and cut back on dishes for the week. This is my whole food meal prep strategy to get the meals for our family of 5 ready for the week.
I avoid red meats, so my family only purchases turkey bacon. It’s absolutely delicious but one big downfall was the less-crunchy-ness of it all. You know what I mean. If you are with the majority of bacon eaters, you prefer yours with a little crunch; or crispy. Should you not be one of the crispy bacon seekers, this post isn’t for you. Here are some other options: Morning Mindfulness. How to Reduce Stress Before Getting Out of Bed. The Kindness Experiment. Just a few light hearted pieces so we can move past this whole bacon debacle. For you crispy bacon lovers, read on to find out how to cook turkey bacon in the oven.
