Confession Time!! Yes, Sunday Confessions. Seems fitting, right? So here goes.
I just started Meal Prepping this year! Gasp!
As you know, my husband retired from triathlon last year and now has real 9-5pm job. Total life shift and.. well.. meal prep shift. When he was in racing/training mode, I use to make a ton of food in batches, but it never had to be portable. He could just eat at home. Nowadays I prep food for breakfast and lunch to go. And dinner is usually something I made for the blog or something easy I can make for multiple meals. Needless to say, I’ve learned a lot about meal prep this year. What works and what doesn’t. For us, at least.
This gluten free meal plan is all about the easy meal prep recipes.
Here’s what you will find in this month’s gluten free meal plan.
- Made TO-GO (portable) meals
- Quick no cook meals and salads
- Crock Pot/Slow Cooker meals
- Instant pot snacks
- No Bake snacks
- Freezer friendly (freezable) Meals
- Make ahead/Overnight meals and breakfast
Oh, and all healthy and delicious! In my humble opinion.
