Meal Prep: 9/28-10/2

It took me a VERY long time to come around to meal prepping. I’ve known about it for at least a year now; I follow quite a few meal prep instagrams, but it wasn’t until three weeks ago that I decided to jump in and give it a try.

Meal prep is an investment in yourself. You have to take the time to research meals that are both healthy and convenient, and then you actually have to take the time to cook. But you are WORTH it!

So, here’s my meal plan for this week:


  • Shakeology –> I change up the shake depending on my mood. Sometimes, it’s just plain Shakeo + 10oz. of Original Unsweetned Almond Milk. On days I have more time, I’ll add a banana and some PB. 🙂


  • Tex Mex Quinoa from Mind Over Munch (M/W/F)
  • Grilled Chicken + Sweet Potatoes + Veggie (T/TH)


  • Greek Yogurt
  • Cucumbers & Tomatoes
  • Grapes
  • Bananas
  • Cheese Sticks
  • Turkey Sausage Sticks
  • Pretzels
  • Nature Valley Protein Bars



Right now, I only prep lunches/snacks for the week. I really do enjoy cooking, and so I am grateful that I now have the time to cook almost every night. I try to use my crockpot as much as possible though; I just got it, and I am IN LOVE with it! 🙂

Meal prepping doesn’t have to be scary. You might make mistakes your first few times, but that’s okay! I’m always happy to answer your questions or give advice/suggestions :).


Journey to Create a Classroom Library

Journey to Create a Classroom Library

I know I’ve posted a few updates on here about the fundraiser to purchase books for my classroom library, but if anyone is interested in following the more detailed updates, you can find them on my blog that is entirely devoted to that endeavor.


Once I get in the classroom to start setting up (August 12th) there will be more updates with pictures and progress as to how the library is coming along. 

Thank you to everyone who has been involved in this short, yet incredible journey. It means so much to me, and to my future students (even if they don’t know it yet).
