Problems: I’ve been preparing my meals breakfast, lunch and sometimes dinner, to go, for months now and I’m getting pretty tired of it. I’m starting to get lazy and just make protein shakes instead of meals. My sodium intake is high due to all the canned products. I have no room to store fresh veggies, so I have to resort to canned veggies, dried fruit, etc.
I have a handy steamer that I steam chicken and lean beef in, break up into portions and freeze, but that get so laborious.
Tips or suggestions? I’m losing my mind.
Possibly the worst part is I’ve turned my room mate on to eating healthy and exercising, now we both have the little mini fridge jam packed with veggies, eggs, and lean meats. What a mistake that was. He use to just eat fast food and stock the fridge with beer on the weekend.[/quote]
Trust me you’re not the only one that gets tired of it sometimes. Yet the way my diet works. I do lots of white rice or roasted red skin/russet potatoes in the oven( lbs at a time). dry Oatmeal in blender + protein powder and frozen blueberries for quick breakfast. Used to eat it cooked with protein powder and berries yet took forever to down.
I like to cook a couple lbs each of ground turkey and ground beef (sometimes steak). Fry em up and rinse of the fat and add a whole bunch of mrs. dash (I know every flavor by heart ha) and redmonds sea salt. Then just chop up some veggies (which some day I probably dont eat enough of) like green peppers that you can saute up real quick and add to meals.
They should have low sodium canned stuff. Yet I’m not a huge fan of canned things.
It’s just part of the game, soon you’ll learn how to get more creative, faster and make it part of your lifestyle just like showering, brushing your teeeth… etc etc…
x3 on the slow cooker also great if you like chilis/stews. I only use it once in a blue moon yet I should really use it more.
