What is Meal Prepping?
Every Sunday afternoon, I spend a couple of hours meal prepping! I usually make 3-4 meals that I can put in airtight containers in the fridge and then reheat during the week for dinner. This really helps me get food on the table super fast during the week! Especially when you have 3 hungry kids and a very hungry husband to feed! It’s also a great way to ensure my family and I are eating healthy, delicious food, and not resorting to picking up takeout or fast food during the week.
What do you make for meal prep?
I love to experiment with making different types of meals for our meal prep. During one of my grocery hauls at HEB, I found Thai Kitchen Green Curry paste. I’ve always loved Thai food at restaurants, so I wanted to try to make one of my favorite dishes at home. And let me tell you, it turned out amazing!
I whipped up a Thai Green Curry Chicken with Kale. This dish was so flavorful from the green curry paste! This is not a sponsored post, by the way, I just really think that this curry paste has the most wonderful flavor and my family agrees!
When I made this dish the first time, my husband said, “I need you to make 3 times as much of this next time.” He ate 2 (or maybe 3!) bowls of the green curry for dinner. My 5-year-old also tried it and she said it tasted wonderful! That’s how I knew this would be a repeat dish for our meal prep rotation.
