Shredded Beef Meal Prep Plan

Meal prep day

    1. Cook Slow Cooker Honey Garlic Beef– get this going first as it requires a full 8 hours in the slow cooker.
    2. Cook 3/4 cup rice for rice bowls- roughly 2 cups cooked. Refrigerate within 2 hours of cooking.
    3. Shake up sesame vinaigrette for the rice bowls. Refrigerate.
    4. Slice vegetables-
      • tacos- 2 zucchinis, 2 bell peppers and 1/2 red onion chopped into 1/2 inch cubes
      • rice bowls- 2 carrots and 1 bell pepper, julienned
      • sandwiches- 1 carrot, shredded
    5. Crumble 1/2 cup feta cheese for tacos. Refrigerate.

Dinner 2- honey garlic beef rice bowls

  • slice the cucumbers on cook day (other vegetables can be prepped ahead)
