The lunches and mains I'm meal prepping this week...

Hello! I've missed a few weeks of these posts as I've been so busy and having work done to my home, so I wasn't able to access my kitchen. Eating ready meals for 4 days wasn't fun to me as someone who likes to cook, but I'm back now, baby.


Anyway, backstory to these posts:
 Following on from my story question on Instagram, I'm going to start documenting what I'm cooking or meal prepping every week as you all said you wanted to see it! I do typically share my meals on stories, but I thought this might be a nice way to share a meal plan of sorts if any of you wanted to follow along or just wanted some inspiration for your own meal planning.

Worth noting -

I mostly eat pescatarian and vegetarian/vegan with a very limited amount of dairy (my skin hates it) and more of an emphasis on quality protein. I love variety and nutritious food, but still enjoy baking and have something sweet every day (and not just a square of dark chocolate because that's boring). I am cooking for myself and my partner only and tend to do 1 shop per week, typically meal planning on a Sunday and getting a delivery on a Monday, so I'm going to try and post this on a Sunday if I can.

Anything under 30 minutes I class as quick. Anything 30-40mins is reasonable!


As usual - 6 days worth and 3 recipes to try. I'm doing one repeat recipe and 2 new ones this week. I've already ate one portion of the lemon chickpeas and they're so good.

Chilli Lime Chickpea and Cauliflower Wrap - oven - 2 days (quick)

So delicious so I had to make it again! It was also great in a sandwich. Don't skip the quick pickled onions, they're worth the extra few minutes of effort.

Sticky Lemon Chickpea Wrap - pan (but I did mine in the oven as it was already on!) - 2 days (quick)

Everything I could want in a wrap! I made my partners portion in a bowl with kale, broccoli and grains so it's adaptable too.

Roasted Cauliflower Date Salad - oven - 2 days (easy)

I love the contrast between sweet and savoury, so I'm excited to try this one.

Main Meal

I'm trying quite a few new recipes this week!

Sesame Miso Salmon - oven - 1 day (quick)

The recipe is with chicken, but I'm swapping it for salmon. This looks very easy and tasty!

Basil Thai Noodles - pan - 1 day (quick)

I'm using protein noodles and tofu instead of beef for this one.

Crispy Baked Gochujang Tofu Noodles - oven and pan - 1 day (quick)

I love me some gochujang and I have some to use up, so this is a no brainer.

Shredded Brussels Sprout Salad - oven - 2 days

I'll be doing this with hake and hoping to make enough to last 2 days, maybe with prawns the next day.

Sweet Potato Chilli - pan - 2 days

I haven't made chilli for such a long time as I used to make it with fake mince, but it gave me the ick so badly that I haven't made chilli for years! I'm going to give it another go with sweet potato and lots and lots of lime.

Enjoy! If you cooked any of these meals, please tag me on Instagram!
