Quick, Inexpensive Meal Prep for Two
So, Bob and I have really strayed away from our meal prepping that we used to do regularly. We both have wanted to get back on that train and that is just what we did last night. I will cut to the chase and get to the real stuff.
We bought from Walmart. We buy what we can organic, but the rest is just regular. We don’t have an income to support that. All of the supplies cost us $49.74. From that it took us two hours to make it all and clean up. This includes me making my egg salad as well. We made 10 prep meals and our dinner for the night out of it. So that is 6 meals a piece. Breaking that down it makes it $4.15/ meal. So, each of us gets to eat 6 times for $24.87. Who says eating healthy is expensive?!?!?!?!?!? P.S. Organic does NOT equal healthy.
Here are all of the recipes with the modifications we made:
Lastly, I had found this recipe on Pinterest for Twice Baked Hummus Potatoes and that did not turn out well at all. We tried to get different potatoes and microwave them. It just did not work. So, we used all of the same ingredients, but then put it all in our Ninja and made mashed potatoes out of it. The juice you see with them on our plates is the juice from the Creamy Lemon Butter Chicken meal. It was good!
So, we just put them in these take-out containers, throw them in the fridge, and pack them to reheat for lunch at work and dinner after we get home and don’t feel like cooking. (We live 45 minutes from work and work 12.5 hour shifts, so we are gone from 6am until about 8:15pm…who wants to cook after that?!?!?)
