Buffet Style Meal Prep


Hope everyone is having a great weekend. I just finished some weekly meal prep and thought I would share.

I prefer to do a buffet style meal prep, prepping ingredients rather than full meals. My husband, on the other hand, is a full meal prepper. I guess it’s a matter of finding what works for you.

Starting left and moving clockwise:

Pre-packaged Spring mix

Chopped broccoli, cauliflower and red cabbage

InstaPot sweet potato

Pre-packaged baby spinach


Paleo banana bread

Chocolate protein bars

Cut celery, carrot and asparagus

InstaPot quinoa

Roasted chickpeas

InstaPot beets in balsamic

Chopped cucumber and Brussels sprouts

Grape tomato

Dark sweet cherries

Green cotton candy grapes 😍

InstaPot soft-boiled eggs

Cut scallions, mushrooms and peppers (red, orange, yellow)

Other weekly players include frozen fruits and veggies (blueberries, cauli rice, corn, peas, greens and edamame); and other items that don’t require prep - Plain Greek yogurt, cheese sticks, bananas, avocado, peaches, etc..

Pantry players include canned beans, tuna, peanut butter, grains, nuts and seeds.

Processed items we enjoy - breads, pasta, tortillas, cheese, limited meat, fish, beer/wine, baked chips/pretzels and pre-made black bean burgers. And of course the totally non nutritive dessert on occasion. 😋

Here’s to healthy, balanced eating! 🎉
