Meal Prep Recipes

Processed with VSCO with a6 presetI’ve been baking and making a lot of food this weekend! Some of you asked for recipes so I decided to write up this quick blog post that included all the recipes. I have my turkey meatloaf, zucchini, lemon tahini sauce, banana bread & pumpkin bread recipes.

This includes my Snack 1 (mid morning 11am), Meal 2 (lunch, 1pm) & Snack 2 (mid afternoon 3-5 pm).

1. Green Tea Soba Noodles

-Boil the soba noodles on medium heat for 5 minutes. When done, use a drainer and rinse noodles with cold water. Store in room temperature to let it cool down before storing in fridge.

2. Lemon Tahini Sauce (recipe here – Oil Free Lemon-Tahini Sauce)

2. Pumpkin Bread 
This wasn’t made from scratch. I bought a mix from Simple Mills. I just needed to add 3 ingredients! The mix is made of super clean ingredients so I’ll definitely be making regular purchases of this brand.
