Tarragon Egg Salad

Tarragon Egg Salad

I love tarragon. I had it in a Blue Apron recipe one time and fell in love. I had a bunch of eggs to use from my egg CSA through Ley Creek Farm, so I figured I would meal prep a batch of fancy egg salad for my lunches. Instead of having it on a sandwich or wrap (which you totally could do), I had mine just over plain arugula, with some multigrain crackers for dipping. Egg salad is awesome and versatile - you can really do a lot with it!

Instant Pot Chicken Salad

Instant Pot Chicken Salad

Chicken salad is a great clean eating recipe to meal prep for lunches! I make a big batch of it and my husband and I will eat it for lunch (or snacks!) all week long. I love the surprise sweetness of the dried cranberries in it. I also love the versatility of chicken salad - you can put it in a lettuce wrap, make it into a sandwich, top a salad with a scoop, or even just eat it straight out of the bowl. This is my third (I think?) recipe where I’ve made shredded chicken using my Instant Pot and, if you couldn’t tell, I’m in love. It’s an effortless way to make moist, delicious shredded chicken! (Sorry if you hate the word “moist”!)

Instant Pot Chicken Curry

Instant Pot Chicken Curry

My last name is Kerr and I love making puns, so I of course had to do a chicken “Kerr-y” recipe! Hahaha. Bad pun, I know. This recipe is based on a shrimp curry recipe I found this past summer and loved. We’ve been having really busy weeks lately getting ready for the school musical (I am the director and my husband Sawyer is the set designer), so I’ve been meal prepping lunches AND dinners. I’m trying to keep these make-ahead meals interesting, so I pulled out that old shrimp curry recipe and modified it to be made with chicken, so it’ll keep & reheat better, and using my Instant Pot, to save on meal prep time. I love the turmeric in this dish, not only for the color, but for the many health benefits, such as anti-inflammatory properties, pain relief, improved digestion, and improved liver function! I recently listened to a podcast on The Model Health Show all about how important the liver is to your body’s functionality. It was a really fascinating episode - listen to it while you make this meal!

Asian-Inspired Tuna Salad

Asian-Inspired Tuna Salad

I was trying to come up with an easy, cheap, high-protein dish that I could meal prep for school lunches this week when tuna fish popped into my mind. I’m a big fan of tuna fish. I like it with mayo and pickles. I don’t even need bread, I can just eat it straight out of a bowl. But I wanted to spice things up a bit, and so I did quite literally with Sriracha in this Asian-inspired tuna salad. I put a scoop of this rocking combo over a bed of arugula each day for my lunch, but it would also be good with crackers, in a wrap, in a panini, or in any other imaginable form!

Greek Salad

Greek Salad

I’ve been nomming this Greek salad all of holiday break because I’ve kept a bunch of the ingredients meal prepped in my fridge. It’s easy to just scoop out the combined toppings over some fresh spinach. Then I just microwave frozen chicken (#lazygirl), sprinkle on some feta cheese, and whisk together a quick lemon-oil vinaigrette. Super simple way for me to get a few veggies in for the day, when my Christmas diet has otherwise been entirely candy canes. Feel free to add other things you might have lying around your kitchen, like chick peas and red onion. Make sure to add them to your container count!
