This weeks meal prep looks a bit different but it’s DELICIOUS! It will last quite a while too because I was able to make 22 total meals for the hubs and I PLUS 7 meals for the kids.
Here we have BBQ Sloppy Joe Cups with Brussels Sprouts (recipe link below). Mine look a bit empty because I’m only eating 2 cups per meal (they’re very filling) and Jonesy (the hubs) is having three. He has 1 cup of brussels sprouts and I have 3/4 cup.
After spending $55 on 5 meal preps last week because I was too tired to prep myself, I thought I would tally this one up and see how much each meal costs when I make them myself.
I am including the 7 meals for the kids because those count too, right? I spent $81.04 on everything and that includes the foil muffin cups, the milk, eggs, of which I have extras of all.
$81.04 / 29 total meals = $2.79
Crazy huh!? If you were ever unsure about whether or not meal prepping was worth it or if you could afford it, here’s your proof.
For my serving size (2 BBQ cups & 3/4 cup of Brussels Sprouts) the macros are…
!!IMPORTANT NOTE!! I make my Sloppy Joe Cups with a sugar free BBQ sauce which I was able to find at my local (healthier) grocery store, Sprouts.
