As soon as I get our snacks, I separate into smaller bags if I buy a larger bag. This makes it easier to quickly pack lunch or control portions. I also include baggies in his lunch bag with the snacks that come prepackaged. This way his teachers can put the extra snacks in a bag for the next day. I DIDN’T INCLUDE the pics of carrots and grapes already separated into bags…this also makes for easy lunch preparation.
Extra snacks for when we run low
I do the same with my veggies…potatoes that are cut and seasoned…then frozen. I have sliced zucchini seasoned and frozen (pic not shown). As it defrosts it marinates, and ensures that the veggies will last longer.
I do something similar with chicken, but instead I pour the seasoning of my choice in the frozen bag and as it defrosts, it marinates. I try to separate before I store in fridge or freezer, this controls portions and makes it easier when making lunches, defrosting, and cooking.
- Sunday: spaghetti and meatballs
- Monday: goya chicken, rice, veggie
Tacos with ground porkmac and cheese, with leftover veggies and chicken
- Wednesday: tacos with ground pork
What are ways you get organized for snacks, lunches, and dinners? Do you marinate then freeze? Or do you freeze then marinate after it defrosts?
