A Simple 4-Part Meal Prep Plan

Sometimes meal planning can be a little daunting, and, let’s face it, a bit boring. I get it. Instead I want to share with you a simple 4-step strategy to go into your week with. We’re going to make something to freeze, one that’s a breeze, something for flavour, and something to savour.

Something to freeze can be any freezer-friendly or make-ahead recipe. One that’s a breeze is a simple recipe that comes together in 30 minutes or less for an easy weeknight dinner.

Something for flavour is a sauce, dressing, dip, spread, or basically anything you can add to veggies, grains, or proteins to spruce them up a bit. And something to savour is a snack or treat that’s nice to have on hand.

Here’s what we’re doing this week…

SOMETHING TO FREEZE:

Sweet Potato, Lentil, and Chickpea Curry

This easy Lemon Tahini Dressing from Sustainable Cooks is going to go great with those gyros. Plus you can drizzle leftovers over salads, steamed veggies, or just spoon it right out of the jar.

Lastly, I am all over cherries at this time of year, so these Healthy Cherry Muffins are where I’m at in the savour department right now. They’re made with a blend of rye and all-purpose flours, oatmeal, yogurt, and a handful of dark chocolate chunks for good measure.
