113 GLUTEN-FREE meals and snacks for $50 – that’s 44 CENTS per serve!

“I don’t often do a MASSIVE cook up in the kitchen but the wet weather in Queensland we’ve been having was kind of driving me crazy. Plus, my son was begging me to make the chocolate chip muffins with him,” says Ashleigh.

“I already had the bacon, rice, gluten free Weetbix and Tamari sauce on hand, I bought everything else. It would be under $50 for everything.

“I’m stocked up for a while!”

What Ashleigh made:

Slow Cooked Asian Chicken x 12

Ashleigh’s top tips for meal prep:

1. Use the slow cooker

I put the chicken in when I started the prep and it was done by the time I was finished and had cleaned the kitchen.

2. Make meals and snacks that have similar ingredients 

I had three different snacks in the oven at one time while two set in the freezer.

3. And clean as you go!

It makes the final clean up much quicker.
