Sometimes you just need a lunch that takes about five minutes to make. This Avocado Cucumber Tomato Salad one is great to go in a jar on the go. You may even prep in advance as long as you add the avocado when your ready to eat it. Those avocados blacken fast so I leave them until I am ready to eat. Lately, I am so tired of eating out. The options of healthy food when it comes to fast food are seriously scarce.
In addition to our busy schedules sometimes I find it hard to carve out time to cook. Dishes like this Avocado Cucumber Tomato salad come together quite quickly as a side dish to a meal. But we end up visiting fast food and restaurants more often. While the restaurants have plenty of options usually the fast food places do not. This has me thinking about meal prepping. Why not it could really save some money. Even save on time.
Could it benefit me to take one day a week for meal prepping several different styles of meals. Then freeze them for easy microwave dinners for later. I even found these containers Freshware 15-Pack 2 Compartment Bento Lunch Boxes with Lids which are stackable, reusable, microwave, dishwasher, and freezer safe. Maybe something like chicken and asparagus could be a great dinner in these. I don’t mind taking five minutes to make side salads. Like this Avocado Cucumber Tomato salad because they are super simple to put together.
Furthermore, what I usually don’t have time for is full on baking. Even crock pots and instant pots. While I love my pressure cooker it takes time to use. I usually end up using it on weekends. It’s honestly one of our favorite ways to make a soup maybe even a roast. I think I might try some meal prep. Would any of you be interested?Print
