real food restart: the prep
My grocery trip last week was a success, along with prepping some foods too.
Lots of fruits and veggies. Fruits to snack on, veggies mainly for salads and snacking. I cleaned the lettuce and made as huge salad to keep in the fridge. Into it went romaine lettuce, spinach, celery, cucumber, carrot and avocado. It’s definitely made eating veggies easier having it all ready and just having to grab it instead of having to make it every time.
We ate kale chips one night and steamed broccoli too.
I tend to eat a lot of peanut butter toast, or peanut butter oatmeal if I’m hungry and in a hurry. Not much protein in there. Last week was not only about upping my fruits and veggies, but also about balanced meals, which need to include protein.
I picked up a couple different yogurts and some sharp cheddar for snacking.
Hummus and cottage cheese too.
Hard boiled a bunch of eggs.
And prepped some tofu to throw on salads. I pressed it for a couple days then sauteed it in sesame oil with garlic and red pepper flakes. Simple and tasty.
I still have lots of my protein snacks ready in the fridge which will help me start out the week right until my next prep day on Tuesday.
Any suggestions of protein packed snacks to add in this week?
Mini egg n veggies muffins might be on the list. We’ll see!
Happy Sunday all.
