Even if you don’t make a plan for the week, there are a few things that will make your weekday life so much easier:
1. Jammy Eggs
Jammy eggs are great for grain bowls – adds a bit of protein and the jammy yolk is an extra little treat
How to make these jammy eggs? Boil water, lower the eggs in once boiling, set a timer for 6 min 45 sec, once the timer is up, place them in an ice bath to cool down and then keep them in the fridge for grain bowls all week long
2. Make a Grain
2 cups of brown rice in a rice cooker are extremely versatile – but quinoa, farro, lentils are all good options for your grain.
3. Pack Breakfasts
We either do overnight oats or yogurt & granola (alternated with smoothies) for our weekday breakfasts. Just make a big batch over the weekend, pack ’em all up, and then you can just grab them from the fridge throughout the week.
4. Clean a Leafy Green
Your future self will thank you for cleaning your leafy greens before the week starts, so that you can just grab a bunch and put it in grain bowls, saute it with dinner, blend it in smoothie. Whatever your heart desires.
Both spinach & kale are classics – but I find that kale will last into the next week, whereas spinach should be used that week.
