Today’s meal prep looks a little different than my previous weeks.
Last week I was hit very hard by the flu (thankfully, I was COVID negative). I lost my appetite and haven’t left the house the past week. Even now, the thought of eating a full meal has my stomach churning.
To make sure I’m keeping my strength up, I’ve purchased a few options for my meal prep that I can mix and match throughout the week depending on what I feel like. These are relatively simple and aren’t in “meal” form which should be easier for my brain to comprehend as food that can go into my body and hopefully lead to less food waste compared to last week. This will very likely cover my dinners throughout the week as well.
Normally my lunches are my big meal each day because it provides me with enough fuel to be able to train of an afternoon. So, while these are my options when I’m not feeling my best, just remember that meal prepping doesn’t have to be a big fancy meal; it can simply be a plan with a variety of ingredients so you have options throughout the week that will stop you from going down the street and spending $12 at a fast food joint.
These are the individual ingredients I have for the week (not all pictured):
• Pizza sauce.
• Kewpie mayonnaise.
What I might make throughout the week:
• Variety of sandwiches and wraps (toasted/untoasted).
• Wrap pizzas.
If anyone has any tips for getting over the flu, please let me know. It’s been a week and I still feel like a bus has hit me 😅
