Ideas for Food Prep:
- Go ahead and pre-wash your salad greens! Make sure you’ve got salad dressings on hand.
- Wash and cut up your carrots and sweet peppers for snacks.
- Clean and chop your leeks so they’re ready to go.
- I like to roast my sweet potatoes ahead of time, so they’re ready to cook in a flash.

Please read! If a recipe can very easily be made vegetarian, vegan or gluten-free using simple substitutes like non-dairy spread, vegetable stock, gluten free pasta, gluten free soy sauce or a small amount of gluten free flour, or by leaving out an ingredient, I’ve coded them with that in mind. If they include things like mayonnaise, eggs, milk, honey or large quantities of flour, I haven’t coded them as such. I don’t have experience using things like egg substitute, non-dairy cheese or subbing in gluten-free flours. Please double check the ingredients for your own safety!
