Low Carb Meal Prep

So im going on my second week of eating low carb (under 20g per day) and I have to cook for my dad, brother, & myself. Any suggestions on easy low carb meals i can make sunday night to have for the week?? (not sure if eggs would last the whole week)

I don't meal prep - I just keep things super simple most of the time and find that it seems to work out.

For breakfast I usually have bulletproof coffee which takes just a minute or two (either search here or google 'bulletproof coffee' if you're interested.

Then my lunch each day is a standard lettuce, cucumber and a protein so either ham or chicken or tuna or prawns etc. I keep mayo and dressing at work to add each day. Then dinner is fairly simple again - a protein such as salmon fillet, lamb chop, pork chop, chicken breast and a veggie such as broccoli, green beans or cabbage which I top with butter.

Occasionally on a Sunday I'll make up some homemade soup which will do me two or three lunches that week. You can also make things like omelettes and chicken salad, tuna salad, etc. ahead of time. I've seen videos on youtube where people prep and pack salad for the week - I don't understand that though. If I chop and pack salad veggies on a Sunday I wouldn't expect them to be very fresh or tasty by Thurs/Fri!

Check out some of the meals on Linda Sue's site (genaw). There are many options for casseroles and such that make life easy

I have found if I don't prepare most meals ahead, it is much easier to go off plan. Most weekends, I fix a few staples:

Dinners: Meatloaf, Ribs, Pork Roast (pulled pork)
Lunches: Tuna Salad, Pimento Cheese
Breakfast: egg muffins, flax muffins

If for some reason I am unable to fix in advance, I use the crockpot for dinners. I've often thrown in ribs or a pork roast frozen and it is ready when I get home. Wednesday nights are church night and they are the exception, as we have to really eat quickly and get out the door. I usually do Oscar Meyer hot dogs, with homemade slaw, and Texas pete chili sauce.

Breakfast is usually an egg muffin or flax muffin.

DH's lunches are usually the tuna or the pimento cheese with pork rinds. Some days I have that too, or I have leftovers from a dinner, or a salad. For dinner, we use the prepared meats and add homemade slaw or green beans.

I make scrambled eggs for the entire week (it's just me eating them, and I'm not picky). I have a busy schedule and the eggs last 5 days.

For quick weeknight dinners, my favorite thing to do is make casseroles (yes, check Linda Sue's website!)....then I get home and throw it in the oven for 1/2 hour. It gives me a chance to unwind knowing I have dinner under control.

I prep for my family of four proteins and veggies for the week on Sunday and/or Monday. I have the oven (and grill in warmer weather), frying pans, and pots going at one time. This cuts down on time. It took me awhile to get the hang of it but doesn't take all day anymore. I find food prepping keeps me accountable so when hunger, work, kids, life, or simply when glutany strikes, (lol) I have access to make good, LC food choices. .

I learned alot about food prepping in a a Paleo cookbook called "Well Fed". It is a great resource on many levels even though I am not specifically Paleo. It is one of my favorite cookbooks. She has a second one out now called "Well Fed 2", which has a great section on LC condiments and SF spice mixtures.

Hope you find what works for you!!

Make some chicken soup! Put chicken pieces into a pot with chicken broth and veggies - classic would be celery, onions, carrots... but you can be more creative. After about 30-40 minutes, pull the chicken pieces out and pull the meat off the bones and put the meat back into the soup. Super easy! And it will last a week in the frig.
