We all know that Sundays are great for activities like laundry, grocery shopping, and mulling the value of your life’s contributions. Here are some easy meal prep ideas to round out your weekend and get you ready for the worthless workweek ahead.
Mason Jar Salad
These salads are a great way to store a mix of hearty legumes, chopped veggies, and leafy greens in a charming jar. Much like your friends and family can see through your charade of decency, you’ll be able to see if you properly mixed your salad in this whimsical glass container!
Sheet Pan Dinner
Sheet pans are an easy way to get all your favorite ingredients—try a mix of proteins, veggies, and potato!—together and roast them for a healthy meal with minimal clean up. While the root veggies are roasting, you have plenty of time to call your dad and fish for validation while pretending to care what color he paints your childhood bathroom. Hint: it’s canary yellow!
This is a classic dish perfect for hot summer days and picnics. Is it too many carbs that are giving you anxiety? Or maybe you’re not eating enough carbs? Spend 30 minutes googling “macros + depression,” followed by another 30 minutes searching “move to Bozeman, Montana with no job,” while you wait for your freshly boiled pasta to cool down.
No matter which option you choose, don’t forget your shopping list when going to the grocery store. Otherwise, you may end up with impulse buys like $50 in lottery scratchers and three Batman Forever DVDs. You’ll be eating your meals in no time while questioning whether anyone will ever love you enough to freeze a whole city. Bon appetite!
