Meal Prep Week of January 29, 2017 – Baked chicken with rutabaga and green bean foil packets; shrimp and tofu stir fry with egg rolls


Welcome back everyone, and thank you for checking out my meal prep for this week.

Last week I did foil packets using shrimp and turkey sausage; it was so good, quick, and easy that I decided to do it again for this week.  For this week, I have chicken, rutabaga and green bean foil packets, and a shrimp and tofu stir fry with eggrolls.  I also decided to make a breakfast dish this time – mushroom and spinach breakfast cups.  Continue reading

I typically make two big meals, so I have some variety during the week, and then change up the snacks that I have.
