Week 2 – Slow Cooker Week!

It’s slow cooker week for us.  This thing is quite easily my favorite kitchen tool.  There is nothing like tossing some ingredients together, setting a timer and coming home to a fully cooked meal!  This week will be particularly crazy for Zach and I so this meal plan is a bit of a pre-emptive strike to make everything a bit more manageable.  Basically, if you meal prep everything as instructed below, all you will have to do is toss some ingredients into the slow cooker, type in the settings and let it go to work!

Our grocery bill for the week was $134.25 (breaking down to $3.76 per meal per person, assuming 3 meals per day for 6 days for 2 people)  We buy primarily organic (especially meat) so again you can definitely cut costs if you want.  I didn’t provide a grocery list this week as I have been receiving feedback that it is easier for people to pick the recipes they like and make their own list (plus what you already have in your kitchen could be very different than us).  Also don’t feel like you have to prep for the whole week…even 1-2 meals for your busiest days will save you a ton of time!

Breakfast:

  • Egg Breakfast Muffins
    • Changed these up a bit this week and added red and green pepper, onions, spinach and sriracha for a little kick
  • Breakfast Protein Shake
    • 1 cup almond milk (or milk of choice)
    • 1 scoop protein powder
    • 1/2 cup frozen berries
    • 2 tbsp flax seed
    • 1/4 cup spinach
    • Blend well and enjoy

Dinner:

And here it is…the finished product!
