Autumnal Meals | Meal Prep #2

Autumnal Meals | Meal Prep #2

Happy Monday Lovelies!

Yesterday I prepped two meals and two snacks in bulk for the week, obviously I’ll make other dishes as well as these during the week but they’re great for when I get home late and have no energy or enthusiasm for cooking. Believe it or not there are times my enthusiasm dwindles slightly…not often but it happens.

My favourite has to be the Lentil balls, although I really love the Lemon and Ginger Hummus so I’ll most definitely be making that again! The Ginger Energy Balls are a staple of mine. I like the taste of the Carrot and Pepper Soup however next time I think I’d add coconut milk instead of water for a touch more creaminess.
