I think the hardest part about eating clean/unprocessed is the prep that goes into it. Unless you have a personal chef or money to hit up the Whole Foods salad bar every day, chances are you’re making your own meals. And that takes work.
Then this happened:
|bacon is the center of everything|
Groceries magically appeared on my table! Or I went grocery shopping. One of the two.
While making dinner last night, I simultaneously cooked the time-consuming stuff. I baked spaghetti squash and sweet potatoes and pork, then stored it all for fast reheating. It was so nice coming home tonight to a fridge stocked with ingredients that were easy to throw together.
So anyway, now Sunday afternoons have become Meal Prep Time (MPT because I like acronyms).
And now this, which is My Favorite Discovery: I had a major frozen yogurt craving tonight. Instead of finding myself face down in a bowl of empty calories and regret, I decided to experiment with what I had on hand and created a blend of avocado, chocolate, banana, coconut milk and honey (a take off a recipe I had read). I put it in my freezer to chill and then enjoyed a delicious chocolate "pudding."
|take that, craving!|
- Do you cook meals in advance?
- What's your favorite healthy snack? Or a weird food combination that actually works?
