Hi, friends. How goes your Friday?
Iâ€™ve been so inspired by other bloggersâ€™ Sunday Prep Posts.Â Tina did a really good round-up on what she cooks on Sunday night.Â You can read her post here.
Iâ€™ve been pinning more recipe ideas for make-ahead vegetarian meals to my Vegetarian Food board on Pinterest.Â And Iâ€™ve been trying to get on the bandwagon for Sunday Prep Day, too, because I can definitely see the value in it.Â Iâ€™m sick of cooking meals from the bottom up every weeknight!Â But â€“ hereâ€™s the thing.Â I kind of suck at organizing myself to do one big cooking session on Sundays.Â So what Iâ€™ve been doing instead is, when I do cook something, I just make a GIAAAAAAAAAAAAANT batch.Â As in, a triple or quadruple batch.
Last night, I cooked up eight giant sweet potatoes (side note: oven baked sweet potatoes are VASTLY superior to microwaved ones):
And six crowns of broccoli:
And this morning, I made a double batch ofÂ my Perfect Baked Tofu.
Itâ€™s not â€œtrueâ€ Sunday prep, but itâ€™s a good way to slowly ease into itâ€¦ Maybe soon, Iâ€™ll be able to rev up for giant baking sessions on the weekend.
Something thatâ€™s really helped me is getting the right food prep â€œgear.â€Â I recently replaced all of our (half mismatched and half topless) plastic Tupperware with glass Pyrex.Â Â I bought two of this set and one of this set.
Okayâ€¦ time to get going!
Weâ€™re headed to the gym for a long run.Â Iâ€™m also going to do this strength training workout.Â Â Nice and fast â€“ just the way I like strength training workouts.Â Hah.
Thought of the Day:
Have a great one!
Do you do Sunday prep? Did you dive right into the concept or ease in slowly, like me?
