What’s On The Menu
Coming off of a (sort of) vacation, I’ve been extremely tired lately. So this week’s meal prep menu is extremely simple. I even decided to be a little festive and get some veggie dogs for July 4!
Luckily, like I mentioned before, I had some pricey ingredients already at home, so this week’s meal prep menu was extremely cheap!
Here’s what I’m making this week:
Breakfast: steel cut oats with sliced fruit
Snack: cottage cheese with tropical fruit
Lunch: brown rice with chickpeas and mixed veggies
Snack: monster cookie no-bake energy bites
Dinner: veggie hot dogs with French fries and potato salad
