I spend several hours (or try to) on Sunday preparing healthy foods for the week for dinners, snacks, lunches, breakfasts etc. so I have time for the gym and relaxation. Anyone else do this?
So far today I have made lean beef stew loaded with lots of veggies (plan on serving over oven crispy polenta slices)
egplant rollatinis (lowfat ricotta mixed with pesto, portabello, onion, garlic seasonings)
Tuna (made with greek yogurt)
Hard boiled eggs
salad dressings for salads and to marinate portabello caps later fthis week for roasting
A big batch of seasoned boneless, skinless chicken thighs to use in lunch salads and other dinners later in the week.
Not sure if I will do more. I think I am out of space in my fridge.
What do you do ahead of time to save time during the week.

Yep I do. However, I’ve been working 12hour days since Monday so I’m tired. I’m actually at work now and I don’t think I will cook that much when I get home. I woke up this morning and started marinating pork chops with potatoes and onions. That will be dinner and lunch for tomorrow. Usually, I spend about 2-3hours on Sunday cooking and packing up lunches and dinners for the week. It’s healthier, quicker and CHEAPER that way.

I did this last weekend. I made our friends who just had a baby a few meals so I doubled the recipes so we would have some for the week. It worked out great and I really enjoyed only having to pop dinner in the over for 30 minutes after work and hardly having to do any dishes. I intended on doing that again this weekend but tragedy struck and I wasnt able to. I totally plan to do this in the future though.
