Meal Prep

I have some more food prep ideas for you! This week I wanted to keep things simple, mostly because I knew it was going to be a busy week and sometimes keeping it simple is the best way to stay on track. So, B and I decided it was going to be a "chicken and rice" kind of week but I did spice it up a little. I found this new spice packet (or maybe it isn't new but it's new to me) called Just Add Juice and basically they recommend a juice to add to the spices that come in the packet and you let it all marinate overnight and then grill. The one I tried (chicken pictured in the middle photo below) was garlic and herb marinated in 1/2 cup lemon juice. It's SO good. We bought a couple other flavors to try but I think this may be my new go-to seasoning. 

I also did taco meat and a green chili salsa chicken. For that I just used a can of green chills and a can of jalapenos in the crock pot. It's a nice change from regular salsa chicken and tastes really good on top of brown rice. I also cooked up some begins this week and much to my surprise we have almost eaten them all! Go us! Lastly I baked a bunch of red potatoes to switch up our breakfast a little. We were both getting burnt out on toast and egg whites so we are doing scrambles this week; potato, turkey sausage, spinach, and egg whites. Hope these blog posts are helpful for you guys! :)


  1. Everything looks delish! I'll have to try a spice packet. I'm sick of my bland chicken! Thanks, good idea :)

  2. Totally helpful! I love meal prep ideas because mine are always so "simple" to me but might be new to others!! I'd love to see what that spice package looks like so I can find in a grocery store near me!! I'm in Texas so feel like we have similar stores compared to AZ!

  3. When you make your chili in the crock pot, do you brown the turkey on the stove first or put the raw meet right in the crock? Thanks!

    1. Definitely brown first, Ive made that mistake before!
