Other's blogs and Pinterest have been my two main sources for yummy ideas on what to eat, recipes, and more. For me, being prepared is what keeps me on track. So I must constantly have ready-to-eat yummy healthy items available at all times. To be honest, its exhausting. There was nothing I hated more a couple months ago than going to the grocery store. Now I have to go every week. I also hated cooking and packing my lunch before bed- but I knew that being healthy would come with more work, and in the end it is so worth it!
Sundays are my favorite time to food prep and if I don't have time to do it then, I usually try to when I can on Tuesdays.
Below are some of my favorite eats so:
|Egg whites with lean breakfast turkey sausage and fruit|
|Yummy delicious No Bake Energy Balls|
|Pesto Quinoa Salad|
|Skinny Chicken Salad: Traditional chicken salad recipe but substitute mayo for plain nonfat Greek yogurt|
|Taco chili (made with ground turkey) found on Pinterest|
|Got to love a taco salad! Made with ground turkey and reduced sodium taco seasoning. |
Homemade guac (the easy way): 2 avocados, 1 lime, 1 container of fresh pico de gallo, and salt and pepper to taste
|"Salsa Chicken" Just baked chicken breast with salsa on top. So easy! Served with fiesta lime rice|
|Egg muffins- also so easy! Egg whites, veggies, lean turkey bacon or sausage. Bake at 350 degrees for 25min.|
|Stuffed Peppers -cheese for the hubby, none for me.|
|Grilled chicken, asparagus and mashed cauliflower "potatoes". Not going to lie- the cauliflower was not my favorite! Still searching for a good recipe.|
