Weekly Challenge #51: Make Ahead Meal

We are in the home stretch with the holiday season.  Chances are, you're not heading home right after work, you are hopefully heading to a boot camp, but you might also be heading to a store for some final holiday shopping.  Your challenge this week is to resist the temptation to stop at a drive through, save your money and make a healthy meal this weekend to have ready to go during this busy week.  Plus, baby it's cold outside!  When you come home you can relax and enjoy a warm, filling and healthy meal.
Here are a some options for you:

White Bean and Kale Soup with Chicken Sausage- You know how we love greens and good fiber!  I love this soup.

Minestrone Soup- Meatless but packed with veggies.  Add in a little whole wheat pasta to make it into a Pasta e Fagioli soup.

Crock Pot Polenta Lasagna- My fellow Food Coach Allison has this delicious recipe that you can prep one night and then assemble and have it cook while you're away.  Or just make it ahead of time and re-heat leftovers.  If you want to add meat, simple brown some lean ground beef or turkey with the vegetable mixture.

Have a great week!!
