{Teacher Week 2015} Make Ahead Meals!

 Happy Tuesday! Linking up again with Blog Hoppin' for #TeacherWeek2015!! Today it's:


I love food. Like love, LOVE it. I can eat everything at all times of the day. But sometimes I just don't want to spend time making it!! So make ahead meals come in handy. Here are some of my faves!

Protein Salad:
This is a Whole 30 recipe that I have simply loved since I did my first Whole 30. Super simple to make and create that I make a batch every Sunday and pack it for lunch throughout the week. I've stuffed bell peppers, used it as celery dip, topped green salads/spinach with it - it's really quite versatile.





I like to add golden raisins, apple cider vinegar, walnuts, and chopped Granny Smith Apples!! Pair with a side of fruit and your lunch is done!
YUMMO. 

I also do a TON of Freezer Meals. These are so simple and I'm so happy when I come home after one has been cooking in the Crock Pot all day!! 

My faves - Pulled Pork, Chicken and Sweet Potatoes, Citrus Chicken Salad Strips, Crockpot Meatballs, Sundried Tomato and Spinach Burgers, Paleo Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Apple, Cherry Pork Loin. 
All of these meals came from Once a Month Meals and please go check out that website ASAP because it is amazing. There are so many recipes! 
You are bound to find something that will suit your fancy. 

And your picky family, if you have that sort of thing...

which I of course would know nothing about. 

At all. Picky-ness, what's that????

Anyways....the leftovers make for great lunch the next day. Super delicious and easy to pack. 

Well that's it for my make ahead meals. What about you?
