So this week was just fine, but this weekend was really hard. My good friend and coworker, Rebecca, lost her home last Friday. It was awful. She has lost everything. What do you do when someone you care about loses everything? You step up, you love, and you provide. So this weekend has been full of the start of rebuilding a life and I'm not gonna lie, it's been tough.
But life doesn't stop. This week's meal prep was light because my brother is coming up, so I'm only working a half week! And Logan cooked his lunches! I also started listening to How Not to DIe by Dr. Michael Greger and I'm not thoroughly obsessed and smitten like the rest of the internet seems to be, but I am rethinking some habits. Apparently mushrooms are the answer to most of my ails and I need to be eating berries every day. I'm also not very far in, so we'll see what happens long term.
Anyway. This week was a pretty easy meal prep, with the exception of the fruit salad. I try not to do recipes with lots of chopping, because it makes everything take so much longer. Again though, I need to be eating all the berries and strawberries were on sale at Aldi this week. I also attempted to make salt and pepper roasted walnuts and burned them. #fail
- Scrambled eggs with balsamic roasted mushrooms (no recipe; used spray balsamic and readymade spice blends I like. I also do 2 eggs per day. You do you.)
- Fruit salad - canteloupe, strawberries, and nectarines drizzled with honey and meyer lemon juice
- Sweet Korean Lentils and white rice - pro tip: check the international section for sesame seeds. Bottles were about $4, but Badia had bags for $.78. This is a first-time recipe for me, but I love lentils.
- Logan made creamy pesto chicken and boxed scalloped potatoes. Easy peasy.
We also have back up lunches of tuna salad and canned Campbells-type soups. Pretty simple week overall!
