Is that a weird thing to say? I don’t know. But there’s something so therapeutic about cooking to me, so I love my weekly Sunday night meal prep.
It’s perfect! I turn on a nice movie, put on some comfy clothes and socks, and get to cooking! Every week is different too, I like to kind of “theme” my meals for the week. Some weeks it’s Mexican, other times it’s Italian or Chinese. And of course, I always incorporate HH|HH recipes into the mix. Quinoa fritters are a go to because they’re SO easy to make and they store in the fridge well. So I can make them on Sunday and eat them the next Friday no problem.
Seriously, meal prepping is the best system. I make lunch and dinner for every day except Sunday. Sunday’s are my eat-whatever-I-want days. HA. Then I put all my meals in BPA free glass containers and I’m good to go for a week!
But lets be real, life can get SUPER busy (like mine has the past couple of weeks) and other things get pushed in front of meal prep Sundays.
And you know that saying, “Failing to prepare is preparing to fail”?
Yeah well THAT just doesn’t work for me! So when I have one of those weeks where I have literally NO time to prep my meals. I rely on meal prepping companies! Yeah, we live in a world where that exists now. Other people will literally cook every meal for you and then send it to your house. I can’t decide if that’s just lazy or luxury. LOL.
Anyway, FITzee Foods kindly sent me a full week of meals to save me from my busy week! SUCH a life saver, let me tell ya.
They have a huge variety of paleo meals to try. Some of my favorites were the steak quesadilla, zucchini noodles with turkey meat sauce, and of course banana nut & squash protein PANCAKES. I love a good protein pancake, especially when you add a little flare to it.
FITzee Foods is located in San Diego, CA but their meals can be shipped all around the country! They ship their meals fresh and in a box that will keep the food cold even if you’re on the other side of the country. I got an email that my meals had been delivered early Tuesday morning, and I I didn’t get home until 9 PM that same day.
And my food was STILL COLD!
So easy and healthy. Two of my favorite things!
Now, I put my food in these BPA free glass containers mainly because I’m freaking OBSESSED with them right now, but FITzee Foods packages their food in microwavable containers that are perfect for taking to work or school. Or even if you’re just too lazy to cook when you get home. PLUS no dishes. I’m all for that.
FYI, meals are always fresh, never frozen. Which, I’m a huge fan of because you never know how long frozen meals could have been sitting there.
And the best part?! I have a discount code for all HH|HH babes!
