I tried to include my hints and tips for making the most out of my cooking so I wasn't doing a ton of extra prep on Sunday, just doing as I went when I was actually cooking.
For snacks and freezer items this is what I'm cooking up today...
Over on Pinterest I had seen where a woman had done this, but shredded zucchini into it and so that is what I am going to do today to have around for snacks, I'm thinking these with some tuna would be a fab afternoon snack! ;)
I will just make a few changes: I will use 2 flax "eggs" instead of eggs, and I'll be using a cup of butternut squash puree instead of pumpkin. :)
The last two years I've made these every year right around this time. I use enjoy life chocolate chips, I use coconut palm sugar instead of brown sugar, and I use organic, unbleached flour. These are so moist, I usually double the recipe and I use her tip for making break and bake freezable cookie dough. They are a major hit with the kiddo and her friends!
So, those are just a few of the things I will be whipping up for this next week and freezing to make meals easier later on down the line! ;)
What is your favourite meal prep tip that just makes things so much easier?
