weekend roundup + meal prep ideas

Good afternoon lovelies!

I hope you are having a wonderful week so far. I am busy with Miss S who is now 7 weeks old (crazy!). We are very much still in the summer of weddings and this weekend included a bachelorette getaway for a very special girlfriend. We can't wait to celebrate her wedding in a few weeks time!

This was Sloane's first girls weekend (post-womb of course) and she was the life of the party ;)

We spent the weekend at a cottage on lake huron and it was GORGEOUS. Here is a snapshot of our sunset snuggles. 

Enjoying the sunset with some gorgeous women.

There were lots of smiles while she enjoyed morning snuggles with her honorary aunties.

The weekend was wonderfully relaxing but when we got home on sunday there was lots to do including laundry, unpacking and prepping for the upcoming week.

Having a newborn I now understand the importance of efficient use of time! To ensure that the hubs and I are eating healthy throughout the week, meal prep has been especially important over the last few weeks. It's not quite as easy to run into town and grab groceries or take any amount of time to make our meals.

The key to success is making the time to plan our meals out in advance, get groceries and prep as much as I can on Sunday's to make it easy to assemble meals during the week.

Here are a couple of things I prepped on Sunday....

A quinoa and chickpea salad as well as some raw energy amaze-balls. Both are perfect for a quick snack or meal on the go. 

Lunch today was a bowl of quinoa salad topped with some sunflower seeds and accompanied by a lovely toasted sprouted grain english muffin layered with hummus and cucumber.

Side note: nuts and seeds are so easy to add to almost every meal and are fabulous because they include so many essential nutrients including healthy fats and protein. here is a great chart I came across today.

If you don't already take the time to prep your meals for the week I would highly recommend trying it out! you have nothing to lose and everything to gain, so try it out and let me know how you make out.

Wishing you a fabulous day.
