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 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'll do this week:

Something for flavour
I'm obsessed with this amazing back pocket Cilantro Chimichurri Sauce from Sustainable Cooks. It will transform anything you drizzle it over including rice and grains, proteins, veggies, and eggs. Try it with my favourite Corn and Tomato Frittata or drizzle on top of these easy and delicious Tempeh Tacos!
Something to savour
I've been struggling with meal prep, and I love this idea. Could you help me figure out how to build a whole weeks (at least 5 days) of meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner) from these basics?
I hear ya, meal planning and meal prep can be a pain! This batch cooking game plan might help you: https://www.heynutritionlady.com/batch-cooking-for-a-healthy-week/
I also offer custom meal planning as part of my nutrition services packages (https://www.heynutritionlady.com/services/) so feel free to shoot me an email if you want to chat about that!
This plan looks great. Thanks for simplifying an overwhelming task. Now then, did you have a video tutorial on burrito rolling?
Hey Catherine! I don't have a video tutorial personally, but I do link to a great burrito rolling tutorial in the black bean burrito post, so hopefully that will help.
