Marvelous in My Monday!

by danielle on January 14, 2013

Happy Monday! I hope your week is off to a good start. Today I’m celebrating Marvelous in My Monday thanks to Katie. I’ve got lots of Marvelous Link Love to share with you as well as some marvelousness from my own week. Hope you enjoy.

I have always loved the idea of Mondays being a fresh start. This means that Sunday is always the perfect day for me to grocery shop and prep some healthy meals for the week. Why not get the week started off right?!

Here I have: crushed tomatoes, tomato paste, bell peppers, pure bars, goat cheese, protein cereal, unsweetened almond milk, apples, zucchini, kombucha, carrots, spaghetti squash, fruit juice sweetened brown rice bread, chicken strips, turkey, and lean ground meat.

Once everything is home, I get it all prepped and ready…

Broccoli with bell pepper and spice, spaghetti squash with tomatoes and zucchini, roasted carrots, turkey meatloaf, and lean ground meatballs still in the oven.

And it wouldn’t be a Monday with Sophie. She usually stands by my side while I prep just hoping for anything to drop. Her favorites this week were carrots, bell peppers, and turkey. As Caitlin said I think I have a Paleo Puppy!

and last but not least some links I loved from the week. Let me know if I missed one of your favorites.

Happy Monday! What are you up to for the week??

I wish I had my fridge stocked with all those prepped foods right now – I have a busy week and absolutely nothing prepared for it! :P

danielle January 14, 2013 at 2:34 pm

Oh no! I’m sure you’ll make it work! Whole foods is always a good saver when I don’t plan as much as I like!

Thanks for the link love, you’re always the best! Awe a paleo puppy, that is adorable. Jealous of all the spaghetti squash you have! I’ve been searching for some more, I can’t find it now! Sad times;)

Oh no! Whole foods is the only place that has it right now. I made the trip just for spaghetti squash yesterday ;)

Sara @ Nourish and Flourish January 14, 2013 at 5:01 pm

Sophie the paleo pup! Love it! You two make a great team. :)

I think I spy Guava Goddess kombucha. Also, your spaghetti squash with tomato sauce looks SO good right now!

Happy Monday, Danielle! <3

Gotta love that weekly meal prep. You would’ve loved the salad I just ate for lunch! Contained many of those ingredients I spy!

Oh I want to know about it! I loved all your meals on your blog today. Everything looked amazing!

Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl January 14, 2013 at 6:18 pm

Your Monday posts are always so inspiring. I really need to get a bit more motivated when it comes to food prep. It would certainly make my nights after work a little less stressful!

Reply

danielle January 14, 2013 at 6:33 pm

It makes the week so much easier! Definitely give it a try.

Rachel @ Healthy Chicks January 14, 2013 at 6:47 pm

I like to look at Mondays as a fresh start too. Sundays are such a great day to re-group & make lists :)

Reply

I agree! I love lists ;)

Alex @ therunwithin January 14, 2013 at 8:16 pm

I am just always digging your meal prep, you are queen of it. i wish I could find big boxes of that cereal, they only sell sample sizes at stores near me boo

Reply

danielle January 14, 2013 at 9:21 pm

I know I was so excited to find it. I’ve never seen it before but I love that it is so high in protein!

Amanda @ .running with spoons. January 14, 2013 at 8:46 pm

Can I steal some of your meal prep prowess? Or even Sophie? :D Hope your week is off to a great start, Danielle! A big thing on my agenda for this week is buying a slow cooker and hopefully not messing up the first meals I try to make in it!

Reply

danielle January 14, 2013 at 9:22 pm

hahaha you can’t have Sophie but maybe some of my meal prep ;) I’ve always wanted to try using a slow cooker too. Good luck using it. Can’t wait to see what you make!

Reply

Katie January 14, 2013 at 9:00 pm

Love the food haul! The Kays protein cereal is really good, just so damn expensive! Haha!

Happy week to you and Sophie! <3

It all looks delicious! We are finally getting back into our normal routine this week — it feels like New Years to me — since I’ve been sick and my sister has been staying with us. Fresh start! :)
