Lazy Food Prepping
Hello everyone. It's Monday again so let's just get right to it. I gained about a pound last week and I'm not surprised. I had a couple days where I didn't put forth my best effort. That's all I'll say. Back on it today. Summer is upon me so I'm hoping the thought of getting in a bathing suit will help me reel in my splurges but you never know.
I have seen a lot of people do food prep for an entire week. I am not someone that will ever do this probably because a) I have a great desire for variety and can't stand the thought of one note food over and over again each day and b) I'm too lazy to do this. However, I have found extreme benefit in preparing meat for the week that I can just pop in the microwave to reheat and serve in a variety of ways. I have pre-made chicken breasts, chicken burgers and pork chops. I find that throwing it in a salad, heating it up and serving with a baked potato, making a quick "fried" rice and adding pork chops or mixing that rice with the burger made of ground chicken tastes delicious and when I prepare it all on Sunday, it makes a dinner that could have taken 20-30 minutes and cuts it down to 5. I most definitely see the value in that. Yesterday I just heated up some minute rice, threw it in a skillet with a little margarine, an onion and some peanut sauce, added the meat and had a delicious and low cal meal. The pictures you see are a result of the quick meals I was able to make during the week. By the way, that's barbecue sauce on the baked potato. It looks kind of gross. I pre-made some more chicken breasts for this week and I'm already relieved I have a quick easy dinner for tonight. Y'all have a great week!
