@Sporty-Bee:  This is exactly what I do.  When I come home from work I’m always hungry and if I don’t have something prepared then I tend to make really bad food choices.  So on a Sunday I make all my meals for the week and freeze them.  It means there’s always something healthy ready and waiting for me.

To help I also only buy food that’s allowed on my diet, if there’s no temptation in the house then I can’t cheat.

Good luck

I love this idea.  My question is, how does it all stay good for two weeks?  I find that most food has about a five-to-seven day shelf life after it’s prepped, and the USDA recommends that cooked meat only be refrigerated for up to a week before it starts growing bacteria.  Do you have a way that you combat this?

@abbie017:  I was wondering the same thing.  Maybe they are all being frozen?

I prepare breakfasts, lunches and dinners for 2-4 weeks at a time so I don’t have to worry about what we are eating during the week.  I just defrost breakfasts and lunches the day before and dinnners a couple days before needed.

This is a great idea and those look really tasty!!!  Are some of them items you plan to keep in the freezer? I’d be concerned with how long things would stay fresh after they were prepped. What’s your plan for that?

@Sporty-Bee:  How long did the cooking/prepping take you?  I’m interested in doing this too, but I don’t know how well I’d do carving out the time for prepping it all!  Any recipes you care to share would be great too!  Thanks!

@Sporty-Bee:  How are the salads kept fresh?
