You guys LOVED my fall vegetable meal prep guide, so I wanted to do another round-up of my favorite spring vegetables. But this time I want to show you exactly what I do every week (or something very close to it).
So in other words, this is all going to be very simple and quick with the exception of those damn beets (if you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you know my weird obsession with beets).
Vegetables are just one of those things that if they are not prepared ahead of time, you’re probably just not going to eat them. Is that just me? I need to have prepped veggies on deck 24/7.
Which, speaking of that, thank @God for frozen veggies because if I don’t have vegetables already prepared, there is about a zero percent chance that I’m turning my stove or oven on when I’m trying to whip up a 5-second lunch. And raw veggies? I wish I enjoyed them. I do. But I don’t, so moving on.
This is why I’m VERY strict about my veggie meal prep. Sometimes I may not prep anything else. But I always need to have some cooked vegetables and hard-boiled eggs on hand – these are deal breakers if I don’t do it. By that I mean I’ve broken a deal with my entire life if I don’t do this every week. Does that even make sense?? It does to me.
So I really vary what I make by how I’m feeling, but also by season. Tons of squash, Brussels, and cauliflower went down the last 5 months. But the second the weather starts to get warmer, I start to lighten things up. I’ll probably always have cauliflower on hand because it’s one of my absolute favorite veggies, but I’ll start to add in more broccoli, beans, BEETS, and asparagus, too. You know, the usuals.
So this is my standard list of veggies that I make every week this time and exactly how I prep them (the same every time because keep it simple, stupid)….
