Rounding out the last half of this challenge, I was finally able to get to the grocery store and stock up!
It was a long trip, nearly 2 hours in total, and my trunk was so full of awesome foods it took me 3 trips to carry it all upstairs!
I got tons, tons, tons of fresh produce! My cart was more than half full of fruits and veggies. I got:
The plan is for this to be my major trip for the next 4 weeks. So that means it’s time for a big bulk food prep day here today! I will be making Lasagna roll ups, Cheesy Chicken & Rice, The Hubby requested a Chipotle hack…burritos, Peach glazed pork chops, and chicken Parm. These will all go in the freezer, and totals about 52 meals, and we still have a good 22 in the freezer, but we needed more more variety! Yesterday I did all of the fruit processing, washing, cutting, and storing.
And the giant fruit salad is back!
The bowl was so full I could not add the apples! This one has: 1 carton of raspberries, 1 qt of blueberries, 1 qt of strawberries, close to 1.5 lbs of green grapes, 2 large cans of mandarin oranges, and 6 kiwis! Plus I had a ton of fruit left over! I always store my berries in airtight containers as it help them last much longer than keeping them in the store containers. I have a feeling that this bowl will not last through the weekend!
The other prep work that I did yesterday was those fruit & veggies smoothie packs!
You may remember that I froze veggie juice, coconut water, yogurt and a kale & spinach mix earlier this week
The fruit packs got:
2 yogurt cubes
2 coconut water cubes
1 spinach & kale cube
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
When want to make one, I will add all ingredients to the blender, plus some Silk fruit & protein, and a scoop of my Isagenix Isalean shake mix…either vanilla or chocolate!
The veggie packs got:
2 kale & spinach cubes
2 coconut water cubes
2 veggie juice cubes
1/2 cup frozen banana slices
To make these I will add some almond milk, and a scoop of the Isagenix Isalean shake mix…most likely vanilla.
Both of these are power packed with good stuff, and I am excited to try one today!
Speaking of today…here is the plan:
- Vanilla Isalean shakes
- Fruit salad
- Veggie smoothie
- 2 Egg whites
- Mushroom Freekeh
- Steamed Chicken breast
- Vanilla Isa Pudding
- Banana nut granola (From this month’s Foodie Pen Pal…check the blog tomorrow for the full review!)
- Roasted veggies (I will be roasting the peppers, sweet potatoes, carrots, zucchini, onions, and tomatoes!)
- Steamed Chicken Breast
- Fruit Salad and Banana Ice cream
I am pretty excited because a very dear, long time friend is coming over for dinner and a sleep over tonight! We’ve not seen each other in a few years…so it’s going to be like we are 15 again! Silly face photography is bound to ensue!
Happy Friday Eve!
