I hate chicken. It bores me to tears, but has high protein and low fat, so I feel like I’m forever searching for ways to make it tolerable in meal prep. You know what makes everything better? Avocados. So check the macros on this sweet bad boy, and while you’re waiting on the chicken to cook I’d recommend browsing r/avocadosgonewild. You’re welcome. Also, sorry for the weird chicken lb on this one, it’s just what the two packages I grabbed at Whole Foods totaled to. You can find my recipe for salsa verde here
Coding & Cupcakes has run several Jewelbots workshops now, and we’ve compiled a list of best practices and tips & tricks. Everything we do at Kansas City Women in Technology events is based on research, attendee feedback, retrospectives, and survey results.
This August in a moment of extreme travel hanger I was introduced to EFBs - emergency freezer burritos - by my friend Kristin. They’ve been a meal prep staple since in my house, and the hubby loves them. This weekend I managed to prep SEVENTY TWO efbs in 4 different styles, which will easily last us through the end of the year and all its chaos as I prep to speak at Codemash and NDC London in January and kick off some ambitious Q1 goals for KCWiT. I am the queen of meal prep. These burritos took about a day to prep and cost under $200, meaning the cost of these tasty, nutritious meals is about $2.78/unit. I’ve optimized this process with my beloved instant pot(thanks to Kristin for this too) and doing things in a certain order to save time and $$.
Sauces are the secret to keeping meal prep from getting dull, but they are labor intensive. Basically anything that requires my blender or food processor is labor intensive IMO cause I hate cleaning it. So I like to make sauces in bulk and freeze them using these sweet “souper cubes”. I also have a serious addiction to this salsa verde, I could just drink it. The best time to make this sauce is when tomatillos are in season, particularly in October. My mom tried one time when they were out of season, and she said the sauce was terrible, but I also think she didn’t know enough about salsa verde to season properly/know what to expect.
I’ve had a poke bowl obsession since I first heard of them in 2016. A Hawaiian dish, poke literally means chopped up fish. The diced fish joins other delicious ingredients in a bowl, and I’m a basic bitch so of course I love them.
Easy meal prep for balanced carbs and protein. Feel free to change chicken amount to meet your macros, it won’t affect the rest of the recipe proportions.
This is my go-to morning meal for a good carb boost before I hit the gym.
I’ve needed to make a personal website for forever, but finally made this so I can share my awesome instant pot meal prep recipes. I may legitimately blog about code or unit testing or something, but don’t hold your breath. Nora and Yesenia:
