Grass-fed Ground beef Bolognese
December 11, 2020
Meal prep for the week ahead can be daunting. The idea of spending a day shopping, washing, cutting and cooking food may not be for everyone, but when you do make the effort weekday meals go much more smoothly. Here are a few tips to help you get organized:
Use recipes that are easy to make in large batches.
Freeze in the exact portions you need.
Stick to 1-2 dinner recipes on your meal prep day. Don’t try to make 7 different meals for 7 different days.
Prep items that can be used again in a different way. For instance, ground beef can be cooked and then used in tacos, enchiladas, or in a rice bowl.
Stick to recipes that are foolproof.
NIKU Farms grass-fed ground beef is a great choice not only because it is a high quality meat sourced from a local farmer, but it is also a wonderful protein option for weekly meal prep routined. Some common ways to use it are:
Seasoned ground beef taco meat (to use in tacos, quesadillas, enchiladas or taco rice bowls throughout the week).
Meatballs (use with tomato, cream, or pesto sauces throughout the week).
