Prep is Key.

For as long as we can remember, Weezie’s dad (Uncle Richard to Evan & Ryan) has preached “prep.” Whether it’s days or hours before, he is always prepared to make his life easier when it comes time to cook.

What does this mean exactly? Well, who wants to spend an hour before they sit down to eat cleaning & cutting their chicken, soaking rice, or baking potatoes? Not us! So, we’ve come up with a few things that you can prep for the week. You can store it in either zip-loc bags or plastic containers. We suggest setting aside an hour every Saturday or Sunday. We promise it’s worth it!!

Grilled Chicken

We like to keep it simple here.

1. Clean the chicken breast by cutting off any excess fat (any white part)

2. Soak the breast in a bowl of water for about 5 minutes

3. Once it’s done soaking, rub both sides with olive oil. Season with any of your favorite spices

→Garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, rosemary, lemon juice

→Garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, parsley, pepper

4. Grill on one side until the breast is white, and then flip #GrillMarks

Quinoa or Rice

Follow the directions on the bag or box. After it cooks completely, let it cool on the stove before you put it in the container.

Sweet Potatoes

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Wash 2-3 sweet potatoes with cold water. Prick with a fork 4-5 times along the length of potatoes.

Bake for 45 minutes-1 hour (depending on the size), or until they are soft to the touch.

Hard-Boiled Eggs 

*Great for salads or breakfast on the go!

Fill a pot with water & place eggs in the pot. Make sure that the eggs are covered with about 1 inch of water.

Bring the water (with eggs) to a boil. Once boiling, turn off the heat & let sit for 15 minutes.

Take out the eggs, run under cold water, & store in the fridge.

These are staples, but you can really prep anything you want. It makes eating well throughout the week so much easier!
