Sunday Meal Prep: Get Through The Week With Mousse And More

Yes, we said chocolate mousse.

Every week we bring you Sunday Meal Prep to help you lay out healthy weekly meals. Do your shopping, spend a few hours cooking, and enjoy the fruits of your labor all week long. A lot of thought goes into curating them, ensuring there’s a good balance of nutrition and delicious fun.

This week, you’ve got something fantastic to look forward to: chocolate mousse.

Now, hear us out: we haven’t given up on the idea of finding recipes that will get you through the week healthily. No, instead we’ve found a healthy chocolate mousse recipe that we think should be a regular part of everyone’s life ― in moderation, of course.

This mousse is made with dark chocolate and chickpea water (in place of eggs). There is a little bit of sugar in it, but the recipe serves 8-10 so the sugar is minimal. And to balance out that sweet treat we have a veggie-loaded frittata that can double for breakfast and lunch, quinoa cakes, curried chickpeas and an autumn salad. It’s going to be a delicious week.
