This week I made:

  • cauliflower rice
  • jap chae (recipe will be up tomorrow!)
  • split pea soup in my crockpot
  • hard boiled eggs

Here’s how I did it:

First, I got the soup going. I love my crockpot. I chopped an onion and celery and tossed ’em in. Then I added a bag of almost empty carrots and broccoli. I added the rest of my split peas, a bunch of bone broth and a ham hock. I popped the top on, turned it on high and got it out three hours later.

It really was as simple as that. I pulled all the meat off the ham hock, which was a lot. You really don’t need specific recipes to make simple meals like this.

Second, I made a ton of jap chae. It basically involves sauteeing a bunch of vegetables and steak and tossing it all with coconut aminos and sweet potato noodles. It’s super easy and you can check back tomorrow for the recipe.

While I was making the jap chae, the hard boiled eggs were cooking. I take them out of the fridge for a snack whenever I’m kind of hungry.

Lastly I sauteed a big ol’ bag of cauliflower rice in avocado oil. I added some salt and cumin and cooked until it all just started to soften. This was for side dishes and it worked out so well. I just had to take out individual portions and heat them up.

Groceries needed for this:

  • bone broth
  • ham hock
  • bag of carrots and broccoli
  • split peas
  • onion
  • carrots
  • eggs
  • sweet potato noodles
  • snap peas
  • red onion
  • bell pepper
  • garlic
  • coconut aminos
  • cauliflower rice

All of this took me about an hour and a half. I did it while my laundry was going and then I was set for the week. Meal prep is so easy – it saves time and money. I highly recommend doing this on Saturday or Sunday so you have food ready to go for the week!
