The One With The Meal Prep Pilot


Happy first day of Fall!!!

Ok, I know it isn’t really the first day but it sure feels like it :). Football started and the weather is chilly. Bring on the soups, warm chai teas, pumpkin everything, and sweaters.

But first, meal prep. This weekend I took the first step toward my business and meal prepped for five people. It was amazing. I cannot express how much I love finding or creating recipes and then giving them to some of my favorite testers. This was definitely a learning experience but I am excited to be moving forward finally with something I have wanted to do for a while. I made a few of my favorite staples including Citrus Salmon with Arugula and Crispy Potatoes. This recipe is not only meal prep gold, because it tastes equally as amazing after a day or two, but it is also the perfect way to end my Pescatarian month.

I think citrus and fish work so well together and these small, colorful crispy potatoes compliment the fresh, flaky, fish perfectly. I added roasted asparagus to this as well. Recipe to come.
