I’m trying really hard to adopt a regular “Meal Prep Sunday” schedule, but sometimes it just doesn’t happen. So, to avoid diving headfirst into bowls of cereal every night when I don’t have a plan, I try to keep my pantry stocked with everything I need to throw together some easy dinners. Here are a few of my go-to meals:
All you need is pasta, mozzarella, tomatoes, basil, salt, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. Pretty much this, plus pasta. It doesn’t get easier than that. (I like to keep this basil on hand at all times!)
Cauliflower Rice/Zoodles with Sauce
Another Whole30 discovery was cauliflower rice, which I have come to really love. I like to toss it with tomato sauce, with or without some ground beef, and Parmesan cheese. It’s filling and so easy, especially if you use pre-riced cauliflower. Now that I’ve got a spiralizer, I do the same with zucchini noodles.
Slow cooker anything!
I am a big believer in slow cookers. There is nothing like throwing ingredients together in the morning and coming home to a delicious dinner with no prep later.
