Meal Preparation + Grocery List (Suitable for dairy intolerant, lactose intolerant)

Hi everyone, today I’m going to explain how I have prepared my meals for the next month. I like to have everything per-organised and a vegemite sandwich does not cut it for lunch for me. Its great to cook your meals ahead of time, you save stressing out and being under pressure to cook something healthy, quickly, so enjoy your cooking time and your meals with an easier approach to organisation in the kitchen.

So here we go:

I have made 28 meals today: of 4 different kinds, all using turkey mince (heart healthy, low low low fat and high high high protein!!!!). My meals are:

1. Cantonese turkey mince with rice and tortillas and broccolini
2. Spaghetti bolognese with rice
3. Mexican flavoured turkey mince with tortillas
4. Chicken thigh Schnitzels with vegetables

These meals include protein, carbohydrates, and 4 serves of vegetables (altogether), are low in fat and low GI (keep you fuller for longer).

I have uploaded a picture below of the ingredient list, the whole lot cost me less than $50.00 in groceries. Bargain!!!

I had 3 pans going on the stove at once, but to simplify it:

For: 1. Cantonese turkey mince with rice and tortillas and broccolini
2. Spaghetti bolognese with rice
3. Mexican flavoured turkey mince with tortillas:

– Brown mince with an onion in a pan on medium heat.
– Once brown, Add desired flavourings (e.g: bolognese add tinned tomatoes and mushrooms, for Mexican mince add taco seasoning and BBQ sauce, for Cantonese turkey mince add the Cantonese flavoured sauce).
– Meanwhile boil the rice and potatoes (in separate pans), they take about 6 minutes or so.
– steam the vegetables you choose over the boiling pot in a steamer.
– spoon all meals into separate containers and freeze till your ready to take them out for your meal!

For: 4. Chicken thigh Schnitzels with vegetables:
– put chicken thighs in oven on 190 degrees Celsius for 35 minutes.
– put into allocated containers with potatoes and brocollini, and freeze till your ready to take them out for your meal!

Enjoy!!
