Food Prep Part Two: The basics

  Ohhh this is a very wordy post, people. In part one we covered the pros and cons of food prep and today we are going to look at how to prep successfully. These are my tips for you, I want you to be successful so I’ve tried to make this as comprehensive as possible! For the purpose of Part Two, we will assume you are prepping for yourself and one other lucky person, who I hope will do all your dishes in return. DECIDE HOW MUCH FOOD YOU WANT TO PREP Before you start cooking you need to decide how much food you actually want. Are you prepping just for yourself? Or are you prepping for others? I would recommend keeping it to a maximum of two adults, anymore and you will really need either a bigger kitchen or a second helper. Assuming you are prepping for two adults, you need 10 lunches and 10 dinners that are completely prepped and ready to go (i.e. containers that are complete meals and only need to be reheated), …

Lemon & blueberry greek yoghurt protein pancakes

You know how sometimes you just really want pancakes for breakfast? A lot of the time I can’t justify them because I eat a low carb/high protein diet and pancakes don’t quite cut it in the protein department. Well, I did some searching for a pancake recipe that includes greek yoghurt, uses oat flour instead of wheat, and how to omit the banana that’s always added. Ta-daa! These light and fluffy pancakes use lovely fresh lemon juice, zest and blueberries with oat flour, protein powder and greek yoghurt. I don’t typically eat many pancakes in one sitting so this recipe is customised to make just 6, you can just double the recipe for 12. One serving (3 pancakes) has 286 calories, 29g carbs and 17g protein. You can find this recipe on the myfitnesspal database under ddbagel lemon & blueberry greek yoghurt protein pancakes If you don’t have any oat flour, use a processor to grind some rolled oats into flour. Combine the lemon juice, zest, greek yoghurt, egg, butter and honey. Mix well. In a larger bowl combine the …

Food Prep Part One: Why you should prep

Hello lovely people, I’m going to do a series of posts about weekly food prep, the act of making your meals for the week ahead. For some people this means making 10 meals in total, 5 lunches and 5 dinners. For others it can mean 20 meals, 10 lunches and 10 dinners. Part one of this series will highlight the negatives, positives and health benefits of doing weekly prep (complete with paragraph titles and everything!), perhaps helping you decide if you want to get all up in this business. Part two will guide you and show you how to successfully meal prep. Part three will include one week of my food prep, including planning lists, recipes and step by step photos. After reading all three parts you will be equipped and well on your way to successfully meal prepping! NEGATIVES Let’s quickly talk about the negatives. Food prepping is hard and can be downright overwhelming. You have to stand in the kitchen cooking and packing for approximately 3 hours. You must bring your A game into the kitchen, if you can’t …
