Meal Mixing

The weekend before last, I was feeling super sick with allergies.  My husband was totally awesome though and did a bunch of food prep for me since I’m too busy during the week to cook!

I made hardboiled eggs earlier in the day.  He cooked up salmon, steak, chicken, and sausages for protein choices.  He also made steamed broccoli, rice, and fresh homemade pasta for sides.  I have fresh, raw veggies in the fridge for more options.  Now I can just grab a few things and make a meal!  I thought I’d share what I came up with.

Meal 1 – Salmon and Broccoli over Pasta

I added a bit of grass fed butter for moisture and parmesan cheese for flavor.

Meal 2 – Chicken and Broccoli

This was my quick and easy Chinese Food!  Chicken and broccoli over rice with a little low sodium soy sauce.

Meal 3 – Sausage, Broccoli, and Rice

This is one of the least glamorous meals.  I wasn’t in the mood to pack lunch but having cooked things in the fridge made it so easy to throw something together!

Meal 4 – Chicken Burrito Bowl

2015-04-21 21.19.55

I had a few minutes to prep so I got crazy with this one!  Rice and chicken from the pre-made foods.  Canned black beans, dice tomatoes, peppers, and onions, sliced avocado, and lime juice.  Add a little hot sauce if you have it!

That was the most interesting stuff I came up with last week.  Most of the time, I just pick a vegetable, carb, and protein and go!  Rob did another great job prepping this week but I’m super busy and it will probably just be a regular combo of foods, no fluff!  One day of meal prep just makes it so easy to eat healthy the rest of the week!
