Have you ever sat and prepped a TON of food in one sitting??
Have you ever seen people do it and think they were absolute NUTS??
Well the other morning Adie and I did JUST that. We wanted to prep some healthy meals that were easy for our parents. With our mother's upcoming surgery, and her being the main cook in the house, we wanted the food to be EASY and ready for her and my dad, and that's just what we did.
Here are a few tips before you start this endeavor..
#1 Grab a friend.
This job was made significantly easier with a second person. Adie put more time into the "harder" meals" while I knocked out the very simple ones.
#2 Pick out meals that have a few ingredients.
This should be a no-brainer. Dinner doesn't have to be fancy. We have talked about this 9 million times on the blog. You can do basic and delicious. My limit is usually around 7. If it has more than 7 ingredients I usually skip it.
#3 Crockpot Meals are amazing.
I love the crockpot. SERIOUSLY...it is my BFF and is about to be our parents' BFF for the next few weeks. I love to put the food in and walk away. A lot of the meals we prepped simple need you to take the meal out and thaw in the fridge for the next day. Easy as that.
So follow on our journey of prepping 3 weeks of meals...
So try it out. Prep some healthy meals and have good food right at hand when you need it!!!
