PREPARE ON THE WEEKEND
Let’s get prepared!
While below might look like a massive list of things to make, the preparation for most of it is super quick and you are going to love yourself crazy for having all these bits and pieces ready to go.
Of course, if not all gets prepared, your week is not over before it starts!
The one thing you really need to do is the Bircher Muesli or Granola - make sure breakfast is ready for yourself on Monday morning if you’re following the meal plan.
Remember that the preparation of food can be fun for kids and partners to get involved with. Kids love rolling bliss balls, peeling boiled eggs, grating zucchini. I find that taking part in food preparation means my kids are always willing to try new things.
Well……most of the time!
Enjoy the weekend preparation

(Oh and you’ll note - I forgot to mention bacon in the Meat Vid. Here’s my take on bacon - buy the best quality you can afford. Naturally smoked from a good butcher, nitrate-free even better. But that’s a bigger conversation for another day….)
