It's been a long weekend; busy with CrossFit and family. Sunday night, getting home tired, thinking of the next couple of days in the gym, food prep still needed to be handled. I tackled the job efficiently and quickly. First, into a big frying pan, went three pieces of bacon, cut with scissors into tiny pieces. Add some organic lard. Get that going; take whatever vegetables are left in the fridge, cut 'em up and get them into the pan!
I had one peeled yet uncooked white potato: bang, onto the cutting board and into the pan in thin slices. Next was half a bunch of asparagus, a red pepper, several stalks of kale, a head of broccoli, some sun-dried tomatoes. Bingo, simmer for a while, stir often, and several servings of vegetables are ready. Putting most of the vegetables into small containers (waiting for protein to be added), I left a bunch in the pan, added eight eggs, scrambled it all together, and voila, two more meals ready to go!
Left-over ham (organic, thanks Bob & Ashley Koenig) from dinner today comprised portions of two more meals; one was added to white rice (I made a big batch of rice tonight, too) and the other to more of the vegetables.
A couple pounds of grass-fed ground beef was in the fridge; I cooked a few patties. Four went for dinner tonight (rice, vegetables, meat), and the remaining two go into meals for the next three days. Add to a container with rice or vegetables... bingo, two more meals!
Of course the Blend-Tec was in action, creating two more meal shakes (frozen strawberries, almonds, coconut milk, Progenex More Muscle, coconuttwitter flakes).
In about an hour, I created three days of meals, ready to grab from the fridge each day, and dinner for two of us tonight, at the same time. No extra trip to the grocery store. Liberal use of spices and salt and pepper and garlic, of course, pull it all together.
No excuses for being caught un-prepared in the next three days. I'm sticking to my meal plan, only eating food I purchase and prepare myself. Whenever I eat, I'm aware and thinking of what my body is going to feel like in an hour or two. Eating real food is an investment!
