Meal Prep: Fresh Year, Fresh Eats

I'd like to say that I woke up to the pitter-patter of rain against my window this morning. And though I could say that, I'd be telling an underwhelming version of the events. I did wake up to the sound of water against the glass, this is true. But what I heard was more like drunk water, pounding on my bedroom window sloppily and loudly because it forgot its keys and had to climb up the fire escape. It was a wet one. And if you know anything about me, you know that I don't mind that very much on Sundays - a day where I kinda like being forced to squeeze in that relaxation that effortlessly evades me all week long (see also: I'm always tired)

One to adhere to code, I fell right in line with the normal Sunday activities. I put on Netflix (cliché). I made us two steaming hot cups of chai lattes (clichhhhhhé). I snuggled my husband and dog (saying cliché here just seems cliché now). And, I made my way to the kitchen t0o - and this is what I came up with for that:
^Greek Yogurt parfait = plain greek yogurt, raw coconut, chia seeds, blueberries, pomegranate seeds, cinnamon, plain granola and raw almonds.
^Kale/Spinach salad = Baby spinach, kale, bell pepper, chickpeas, snow peas, snap peas, almonds, sunflower seeds, BBQ chicken, blueberries & pomegranate seeds.
^The fixins' for our work breakfast and work lunch. 
^Kale & Spinach salad for lunch & Greek Yogurt parfait for breakfast.
^When the ingredients are prepped, it makes breakfast/lunch assembly extremely quick every night.
^Dressing set aside in small container.
^Packed-up for work (see dressing in there?). Yogurt quick video here.
Happy start to your week!!

I love that dressing. One of my favorites.

Those blueberries look phenomenal, like I will have to go out and buy some.
