I hope 2015 is off to a great start for you! We enjoyed our long weekend as a family and spent a lot of time relaxing and getting our house organized from the Holidays.
I naturally choose to eat healthy day in and day out, but after several indulgences over the last 2 weeks I made a conscious effort this weekend to eat lots of healthy food.
I was able able to make several trips to the gym this weekend. I did a boxing workout friday, an elliptical cardio workout
and I also practiced the new Group Power workout with my co-worker Michelle.
By the end of the weekend I was sore!!
Yesterday while making breakfast for Marc and Ava, I decided to whip up a quick Frittata with eggs, spinach, tomato, and a little sprinkle of cheddar cheese. I figured this would be a great mid morning snack to have on hand throughout the week. I am a huge egg lover so I don’t know how long they will last, but hey at least I have a healthy snack planned.
I also had a genius idea to roast a big chicken in the oven… We placed it on top of an assortment of veggies (parsnips, carrots, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, & onions) It really was GENIUS! the veggies soaked up some of the delicious juice from the chicken and they were so good I couldn’t stop eating them!
Ava loves chicken so this will be great to have ready for the week
If veggies aren’t prepared and easily accessible I will most likely not eat them. I need them right in front of my face. How about you guys?
Anticipating this week would be crazy with a full week of work, I also cooked up some Chicken Sausage & Peppers. It will definitely be nice to have a dinner all ready to go when I have to teach class at night. It makes my life so easy!!
I haven’t done food prep like this in a while, but it put a huge smile on my face thinking about how I can kick my feet up after work and not have to worry about cooking dinner or planning lunches and snacks for at least the beginning of the week
I hope you have a great day.. I am off to teach my usual Monday morning Group Power.
Do you food prep?
What is a meal or snack you enjoy having on hand in your fridge?
