Made a large container of nutrient dense salad to have every night. It has lettuce, cabbage, carrots, green pepper and pepitos or walnuts. These things last longer. If I have time when putting the salad in our bowls, I add cucumber or tomato (things that get slimy faster).

My plan: Portion fruit for smoothies. Boil eggs for snacks. Make corn chowder soup, and cook green beans, and cabbage. Cook baked chicken thighs, pork chops, and pork ribs. Get a couple of premade salads (regular salad fixing go bad on me).

So far-
a couple dozen boiled eggs
meatballs for the freezer
burger patties for the freezer
quinoa to make bowls with

Today, I'm going to cook up ground beef and portion it and probably pressure cook a few batches of beans. I need to chop veggies for the rest of the week too.

Between yesterday and today:

- Various baked custards for breakfasts for both of us (apple carrot, chocolate beet, and pumpkin berry - 8 servings of each).

- Cooked hulled barley and buckwheat, loose ground beef as well as 8 burgers, pulled chicken, a pork loin roast, and an eye of round beef roast - all cooked, portioned, and frozen to use as ingredients for quick meals.

- A dozen muffin-cup breakfast strata (eggs, bread, onions, mushrooms, spinach, sauerkraut, cheese, and ham), along with 10 hard-boiled eggs.

- A couple of loaves of wholegrain sourdough bread, and a dozen wholegrain sourdough rolls.

- Fresh strawberries hulled and sliced (enough for a week).

- Chopped a dozen pears and baked with cinnamon and ginger, and chopped and baked a half-dozen apples with cranberries and fresh ginger --- kept 400g of each in the fridge for use in meals / snacks for the next few days and the rest is portioned and frozen.

- 1500g of homemade plain Greek-style strained yogurt (which will last 5-6 days).

Tomorrow will be roasting up a couple of pans of mixed veggies (rutabaga, radishes, carrots, sweet potatoes, potatoes, butternut squash) and doing a big pan of sauteed mushrooms with some onions - which will give us enough for meals and snacks for a few days, and let us mix-and-match for variety.

The weather has been good for cooking (and not so much for anything else), so lots done and ready to be enjoyed later on.

I prepped chinese pork veggie rice boxes for my lunches at work and then prepped lentil and bacon soup for my evening meal. I also weighed out all my fruit and mixed them so that for desert I just grab a bag and defrost it. Sometimes prep is just about pre weighing the components

I cooked chicken breasts to use during the week for lunch salads. I also made some chocolate granola for a little snack (it tastes like a brownie without the brownie!). I also made a batch of sweet potato oatmeal chocolate chip breakfast cookies. They are in my freezer and I will eat them when I need a quick breakfast. I also made a batch of cucumber-ginger-mint infused water for sipping at work.

I made up some veggie rice boxes. I can add a protein of choice to them so I opt for pork, chicken or salmon. I really enjoy the variety the vegetables give me. I also like having what I call fast meals - so things like soup where I can grab them from the freezer or fridge and have something in as long as it takes to microwave. My go to deserts are frozen fruit (defrosted) with yoghurt.

I made lentil soup, baked beans with lots of peppers, I made chicken, I completely prepped my meals for today. I think I will make that a habit because it stops me from having to think what I want to eat when I am hungry.

I really don’t do anything special on the weekend to prep for the work week, instead I make large meals so there are leftovers to take for lunch the next day. I will often make a roast early in the week so my teen son has meat to make sandwiches for his lunches and snacks.

Right now I have chicken soup leftover from Saturday that I made from the carcass of a roast I made last Thursday. And leftover taco meat, lettuce,vegetables and guacamole from yesterday. Those will be in everyone’s lunches today and for lunch tomorrow we will be having leftovers from dinner tonight. Homemade Indian food! 🤤

I don't think a huge amount of nutrients are lost by chopping a few days ahead of time, especially if they are still raw. Plus, if doing all that prep work gets you and your family to actually eat veggies more often, then the benefits of doing so far outweigh the possible negatives :)
