Happy, happy Monday! I’m back with another meal prepping post, but it’s one of my favorite + most requested posts to share with y’all! I know how hard it is to dig through endless amount of recipes on Pinterest, figuring out if it’s tasty enough or if it’s even something that will keep/store well to be meal prepped. You can find my previous meal prep posts by searching “what I’m meal prepping” in the search bar!
What I’m Meal Prepping:
Breakfasts: Homemade McMuffins + Green Apples
Herb Seasoned Chicken Breast with Homemade Cranberry Sauce
Ham + Cheese Sliders with Mixed Veggies
Admittedly, the ham + swiss sliders might not exactly be the healthiest between salty lunch meat and dairy (both of which I try to avoid for the most part) but sometimes I just need to be able to throw a few simple ingredients into one pan and call it good. I mean hey, least I added some greens to it!
The chili is one of my favorite recipes though – I make it every fall/winter because it’s so warm and comforting, and it’s full of good-for-you ingredients. If I didn’t tighten up my grocery budget to make room for some Christmas shopping, I probably would have substituted the ground turkey for the ground Beyond Meat, but sometimes compromises must be made, and that’s okay!!! This recipe should make a lot, too, so feel free to freeze part of it to thaw out when you need something home cooked + already put together. Just be sure to have a thermos or two on hand to comfortably travel with soup to work, school, or wherever it is you’re going.
As for the homemade cranberry sauce, just y’all wait. I’ll be posting my recipe soon, in enough time for y’all to add it to your own Thanksgiving menus. I’ve made it for the last 3 or 4 Thanksgivings and my family and I have never looked back to the canned, jellied stuff. Nothing beats this recipe, and I am so excited to share it!
Leave some of your favorite cold weather recipes in the comments! I’m always looking for some hot comfort food!
