Meal planning is kind of one of those tedious but necessary things for me to do. I prep meals for a couple of reasons:
1. To be less wasteful. I cannot stand throwing food away.
2. To eat less junk. If food is already prepared and ready, I might not be eating 20 cookies.
3. Save money. No need to eat out so much If you've already got something that's already prepped and ready.
4. Weight loss. Ties back in to #2.
This is a shrimp, broccoli and cauliflower bake that was about to go into the oven. My sister introduced me to this and it's been a favorite ever sense.
I like to season it with this Kick'n Chicken seasoning and sometimes a bit of seasoning salt. The Kick'n Chicken is a bit spicy so you might want to pass if you don't like spicy foods. I think I baked this for about 45 minutes to an hour.
Then, I made some salad containers using cubed ham. I left one of the compartments blank because I couldn't decide whether I wanted to add something sweet or not. I always have to leave myself the option of getting something sweet so I don't go crazy with it later. However, I ended up being full after the salad and fruit and didn't add anything. GO ME!
After about 2 days, the meals are clearing out in the fridge. Big family-small fridge problems. So it was time to make some more. I made more subs and this time decided to add some pasta salad. It's just made with with tri colored rotini, cut up shrimp, cubed ham and house Italian dressing.
